Life is the same, but it’s different. I still have a lot of very stressful “stuff” going on but it is changing shape. No, it’s not changing shape: what’s really happening is that one of the huge things is building to a crescendo. And it’s scary, really scary. As far as my health goes, it seems to be the “scary” that is causing the most problems, rather than the level of stress. Consequently, the Fibromyalgia is no longer in the driving seat. It has been relegated to the position of backseat driver, with anxiety doing the driving and depression sitting firmly in the navigator’s seat.
As far as the Fibro is concerned, my main problems are tiredness, fatigue, tinnitus and ocular migraine – but, they’re a doddle to cope with compared to everything else that’s going on. Thank goodness I have Peter around to support me: he is helping me more than he knows.
