Sometimes, even after over a decade with fibromyalgia, I have to be reminded just how bad things can get.
Sometimes, I forget how everything can hurt. Sometimes, I am surprised by how quickly the pain flares up. Sometimes, I am pleasantly surprised by how quickly the pain fades away. Today is not that day.
Today I woke up three hours early just because I couldn’t stand to stay horizontal another minute. Today I remember how badly I can hurt. Today I wonder how long this flare will last. Today I’ll settle for NaNoWriMo and cozy blankets.
Tomorrow I will head back to work. Tomorrow I want to feel well. Tomorrow I will be glad I took it easy today. Won’t I?
What do you do on painful days like today, to make sure your tomorrow is bearable?
