Bossymamma’s Nemesis

Before I began writing this I had to do some research on the internet to establsh that “Nemesis” was the correct word to use. It turned out to be a pretty good way to describe the phenomenon that I shall be covering on here today

Collins Dictionary Online defines Nemesis as “any agency of retribution and vengeance”.

For some people a completely different image will have come to mind, namely, a roller coaster in a well-known theme park in the UK. The second use of the word was why I needed to do some research, as I know very little about roller coasters. You see, I wanted to use the name of a roller coaster in the title of today’s post. I couldn’t believe my luck when I found “Nemesis”! (I’m not being paid to advertise, by the way! 🙂 )

Why did I want to use the name of a roller coaster? Simple. Because that’s how Fibromyalgia can be: up and down, just like a roller coaster ride.

Having been given the diagnosis of Fibro just two months ago after the onset of symptoms less than three months earlier, I am still getting grips with what life with Fibro is like. Now, I’m not saying that I didn’t know about how Fibro can change from day to day, but, rather that I didn’t know how it would actually feel to be someone that it happens to.

The tiredness I wrote about in my last post has still been very much in evidence over the last few days. I think I can probably class this period as a bit of a dip. Liz’s use of the word ‘dip’ to describe what’s going on (thanks, Liz, I hope you don’t me borrowing it 🙂 ), seems fairly apt and is what brought the image of a roller coaster to mind.

I have never actually liked roller coasters – I have no head for heights and they make my stomach clench, even just watching one on screen! – and I don’t think I’m going to like this Fibro Roller much, either!
