I had grand plans for how to do justice to the topic of fibromyalgia for Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. Unfortunately, I’m having a severe fibromyalgia flare and I don’t have the energy to write it. Ironic, I know. The last couple of days have been challenging fibromyalgia-wise due to sudden changes in temperature. Last week it reached 86 degrees Fahrenheit one day. This morning it was 40 degrees Fahrenheit when I got up. That kind of temperature shifting causes my fibromyalgia to flare badly. I have talked with other bloggers in the last few days who have fibro and are experiencing flares like this too.
I recommend following @fightingfatigue on twitter. Her blog is excellent. Check it out: Fighting Fatigue. Sandy has been supportive of the endometriosis cause and has been retweeting our messages on twitter. Let's support her likewise. I wish I could write more but I am totally exhausted today. Every muscle hurts. It feels like every molecule and cell in my body are talking to me... and I don't like what they have to say. So I am not going to be able to write an elaborate blog post today. It is a major effort to be at the computer at all right now.
Today is also M.E./C.F.S. Awareness Day. I wanted to mention it too. I have recently met some wonderful people on twitter who are working for the M.E./C.F.S. cause. They have also been supportive of the endometriosis cause. We have been retweeting each other's messages regarding M.E./C.F.S. and endometriosis.
Please follow @Killandra @perpetualspiral @redtoffee @runefox on twitter regarding M.E./C.F.S. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are two names for the same condition. There is not strictly one term used worldwide).
@Killandra has a contest going on. Check it out!
Blue Ribbon Campaign for M.E./C.F.S.
I will post something at a later date when my symptoms aren't so active but I wanted to be sure to get this posted today for awareness day. Feel free too to browse through prior posts (more so on fibromyalgia than on M.E./C.F.S. but you should be able to find posts on both).
