I don’t understand why I feel this way – pain all over and so sensitive to anything remotely painful. I accidentally bumped into the car door yesterday and it brought me to tears, as did an accidental bump into the bathroom wall. These things shouldn’t be so painful. I’m sure some people would read this and think it’s just drama, but I don’t think it is – it HURTS, like automatic/involuntary tears-in-the-eyes hurts.
And the fatigue level is high. I slept a lot on Saturday – a lot – and whenever that happens, I do feel like I’m missing out on life. I see photos of other people’s sunny afternoon activities and feel like I’ve become a lumbering troll. I napped again on Sunday, and I went to bed early Sunday evening, and I still woke up today feeling like I had barely slept, un-rested, tiredness in every bone of my body. I guess this is all just part of the Fibro process, for now, for me . . . but I am feeling overwhelmed.
What can I do?
