Getting Sick or Fibro Flare-up?

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being childbirth

Pain level today---7

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being sick with mono

Fatigue level today--- 7

I do have 2 sick children so I could be getting their virus or it could be a fibro flare-up due to the weather (sub 0 with wind chill) and/or my new exercise routine.

Either way....I don't feel good today and just want to snuggle up in bed with some hot cocoa and a good book. But since I have no fever, sore throat, headache, digestive issues, nor congestion, I'm reluctant to do so.

If it was a friend or family member, I'd tell them to rest. Why can't I follow my own advice?


Edited at 1:20pm....just fed husband leftovers for lunch during his lunch half-hour and am now headed to bed to snuggle under the electric blanket. LOL emoticon My brain is too mushy to even read or think.

    Take good care of you so that you are healthy enough to care for others....
How many times to mother wives, daughters hear that? How many times do we do it? here are gentle hugs for you, take that hot drink, rest a specific amount of time by the timer, get up and be honest as you evaluate your health then do what is best for YOU!!! Pray for wisdom and energy to make good choices. HUGS!!!

    Well, whichever is going on, I'm glad you're resting and taking care of yourself. **SIGH** It's so much easier to tell others what to do than to do it ourselves, isn't it!

HUGS and rest up! Take care. There are so many germs going around! Drive me nutso!!!

Take some time to rest so you can nip it before it really gets out of hand. I hope you feel better soon!
