Nothing big wrong, but the tactile sensitivity of fibromyalgia is flaring. Where my wrists rest on the laptop as I type, it feels like needles are opking and scratching that very tender skin. The tags on the inside of my clothes feel like sandpaper. and my calves are so tender I can hardly stand the legs of my Joe Boxers to touch them.
As I said, blech.
Outside that, life is pretty good!
Today was .... odd. For some reason, 2/3 of the people who work where I do were edgy and snarky. I was asked to deliver some supplies to a patient that I was on my way to see anyway. Sure, I never mind doing that. Buuuuut ..... it took me almost half an hour and talking to a half dozen people to get a straight story about exactly what needed to go! I was given conflicting lists, and the final straw was when the case manager, a nurse, couldn't decide which of two items I should take. She told me to make a decision, she didn't care which I took!! Uh, NO! I have neither the medical knowledge nor the authority to do so! Good grief. Then she said to take them both. Uh, NO!! counterproductive and wasteful. By the time I left, I was late for my appointment, and I was not, NOT in a good mood. Fortunately it was a 30 minute drive and I had a good friend with me. I was able to let the frustration go before we got to the patient's home.
Why is it there are some days when everyone seems to be touchy and irritable at once? Is it something in the air? Was the coffee bad this morning? Did everyone have the same breakfast, a bowl of Crunchy Grumpies? Oh well.
I began walking this week. Well, sort of. I'm stopping at a walking path when I leave work . My plan is to walk for 10 minutes, turn around and walk back.Ill increase it every other walk. The problem is I walked Monday, then I have other appointments every other day this week! I'll force myself to walk this weekend. Somehow. Somewhere. It's not ideal, but it is, at least, a beginning. Wish me luck. This is not easy, with everything going on in my life, so busy as I am these days. I'm doing one or two Healing Touch Therapy sessions several times a week. That keeps me busy, and, as my mom would say, out of trouble!
And speaking of Healing Touch, I have studying to do! Hasta la vista, y'all!
