Here I am, at four minutes past midnight, sitting in surroundings which bear more than a passing resemblance to the photo above.
It has been a challenging week, or so, in a variety of ways, including the edges of a certain medical condition which keep giving me a poke. For example, today the dizziness decided to make an appearance whilst I was transacting some business. It’s quite embarrassing, trying to cope with dizziness when there is a stranger in front of you, watching you and obviously wondering what on earth is going on. Luckily the attack passed quickly.
Then there have been the times when I’ve been explaining something that needs to be done but simply don’t have the word that I need. And, how about all those times when I’ve been discussing something with my partner, or someone else, and that dear miss, Ang Zya Tee, decides to butt in?
There have been other symptoms, as well, which have been nudging their way in at the edges of my being, rather like physical reminders of the beast sheltering in the background. Maybe the Fibromyalgia is getting wise to the ways of the adrenalin that has been rushing around my body for some time.
Admittedly, the adrenalin levels are most probably considerably lower than they were during most of August and all of September and October, but November has brought with it stresses and strains of its own, so I don’t want to count my chickens. All in all, though, I do feel much calmer than I have done of late, and that is probably why the Fibro is managing to poke me convincingly.
I am doing my best to take care of myself, particularly in relation to stress levels. I am choosing the least stressful option whenever possible as I think I’ve had enough stress to last a lifetime! We’ll have to see how well that works, won’t we?
