Air Supply

– Posted in: Chronic Pain, Personal Insanity

So today (actually yesterday since it’s after midnight as I’m writing this), I spent the morning at yet another marathon dentist appointment. Then I had a mammogram and a bone density scan. And then I came home and fell asleep for three hours.

I haven’t been feeling very well. In typical fashion, I like to pretend I’m feeling just fine and go on with my daily life. But I’ve been seeing a chiropractor who has slowly been taking me “back in time” through the last 17 years that I’ve been messed up (at least I sure as hell hope that’s what’s happening). Plus the grand, two-year experiment with the neuromuscular dentist to change my bite and miraculously cure my atypical facial pain has failed, and we’re now in back-tracking mode. So I’m experiencing all of these whacky symptoms that I either had a long time ago or actually never had at all (at least I don’t remember them).

Anyway, blame it on the “fibro fog” (this great little side symptom of fibromyalgia that makes you put your keys in the refrigerator) or the pain meds or the sleep deprivation. Whatever it is, I’ve been feeling awful. Not to mention doing things like leaving the mailbox key hanging in the lock. And forgetting to close the garage door. And suddenly falling asleep for three hours…

All I can say is that I hope this is one of those short-lived dives and I get to come up soon. Because, damn it, I’m running out of air.

So sorry to hear you've been going through so much crap! Hope there's a silver lining very soon.

That's no fun! I'm sorry you're feeling so miserable. Hopefully something gives soon (in a good way!) and you can get back to feeling better!

Hope the mysteries are solved sooner than later. That is a wicked trifecta for one day!

The fibro fog.

My sister's fiance had it. He lived life with it. And I remember seeing him, and seeing for myself how very real his fog was.

I feel for you, dear lady…

I'm so sorry, sweetheart. I really hope you get to feeling better soon. I have a good friend with fibro and I know how terrible it can be. Heart hugs from me to you.

Definitely no fun. Thanks girlfriend.:)

At least the bone density thing is no biggie. You just lie there. If it were longer, I could've taken a nap.

And thanks for the kind words.:)

It makes you feel like a crazy person. For sure. Thanks for empathizing, as usual. xo

Thanks girl. You're too sweet. I don't know how you do it, but I can always feel the love straight through the computer screen.
