I have been nominated by the most lovely and wonderful Laura for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I was absolutely over the moon to receive this nomination and want to thank her so much. I write because I hope it will strike a chord with someone or help someone, and the fact that she nominated me absolutely means the world.
Today is one of those dreaded days. I feel completely fatigued and I am really struggling to work (I work from home which I’m blessed to be able to do but on these days it’s hard to focus).
Facing the world with limited spoons,
Isn’t the life any of us would choose;
But we make the most of every day,
No matter what is thrown our way.
When it comes to fibromyalgia a lot of people who don’t have it or don’t completely understand it, don’t truly understand what I mean when I say I’m having a flare. They tend to think it’s ‘just’ a case of me being in pain and feeling tired, which are certainly symptoms but that isn’t what a flare is to me.
Yesterday I did a sponsored walk with family and friends for a dear friend that passed away a few months ago to pancreatic cancer. I was already flaring but was determined I was going to do it because it meant so much to me.
I haven’t written on my blog for a while because the heat has been causing my fibromyalgia to flare majorly. I haven’t been able to walk much or work on my fitness, but I have been trying to stay positive and get out there on my mobility scooter, and do bits and bobs when I’m able.
