So in all honesty, today was rough… I had the worst shoulder pain ever and I actually started to think it might be more than Fibro until I thought about it and was like… Yeah, Fibro…
I do this all the time, I know what the usual symptoms are and when I have a particularly tough time, I begin to over think it and worry that I could be brushing off something worse.
My husband and I joke about it actually. Everytime I get a pain, forget something, do something off the wall nutty, trip, cry, etc… We shrug and say “Must be Fibro”.
I try hard to make routines for myself so I don’t forget things. I try to put tasks in order so it’ll feel wrong if I skip something for example, in the morning I brush teeth, wash face, put in contacts, apply makeup, fix hair, then hearing aids. (Yes, I am hard of seeing and of hearing)
Some days when my mind is foggy, I mix up the order and then forget to put in my contacts before I apply makeup. Ever try putting in contacts just after you put mascara on? Not fun! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten all the way to work before realizing that I forgot my hearing aids! Kind of hard to do my job when I can’t hear stuff.
Anyway, that didn’t happen today… but something kinda fun did happen today. I got a Twitter notification that I had been added to a list called “Cannabis Experts” This cracked me up!! I don’t consider myself an expert but I told a couple of friends and one of them said “Well, you certainly seem to know your weed”!! Lol
Well ok then! I will admit that I researched the shit out of it and maybe know more than some but I think I still have a ways to go. Still though, I’m feeling pretty snazzy about it!
