I hear rumors that it's Fall somewhere, but today's high is 92 and sunny here in S. TX. I have been suffering a long month's worth of allergies, sore muscles, and way too much stress. My life has been changing so fast lately, with my son going to college, my mother's passing, and a divorce, that sometimes I just want to take a "time out" day, but I don't seem to be able to find the time. I've been so busy with my little guy, getting the house cleaned and decluttered from my hoarder ex, work, general mom duties, and trying to have a life outside of all of that other stuff that I can't seem to make myself just take a day to do nothing. And by that, I mean laying around all day reading, watching TV, eating whatever I want, and not doing any chores at all. I am very blessed with two great kids who help around the house, my little one does light house keeping, and my older son and his friend, who comes home with him on weekends for free food, are outside doing tons of yard work for me. I just finished feeding the masses homemade waffles and eggs, so they will pretty much do anything I ask at this point. I know logically I should take a break, but when I sit down with nothing to do but think, I just feel sad and lonely, so I stay busy. Not that I am running away from my life, but I don't think it does me any good to wallow in all the muck, ya know? I'd much rather watch a football game with some friends and drink a beer! I've noticed that when I DO spend some time reflecting on my life, I end up in pain, stiff, sore, and headachey, so I'm thinking it's not good for me, lol. If there isn't any definitive proof that stress makes Fibro worse, I can offer plenty of evidence! Ugh.
OK, guys, let me know how everyone else is doing!
