I have been gone and just wanted to thank you all for hanging around. One of the major events for me during 2021 was being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, along with a ton. or a few that feel like a ton... of other medical issues.
Anyway, man this has been a ride.
If you are unfamiliar with fibromyalgia this is the medical definition:
"Pain may start in one part of your body, such as your neck and shoulders. Any part of the body can be affected. . The pain ranges from mild to severe. It may feel like burning, soreness, stiffness, aching, or gnawing pain.
You may have sore spots in certain parts of your muscles. It may feel like arthritis, but it’s not a condition that gets worse. And it doesn't damage muscles or bones.
Other common symptoms of fibromyalgia include:
- Medium to severe tiredness (fatigue)
- Less exercise endurance
- Sleep problems at night
- Depressed mood
- Irritable bowel symptoms, such as belly (abdominal) pain and bloating, diarrhea, and constipation Restless legs
- Painful menstrual periods
- Trouble thinking clearly (called "fibro fog")"
