Waking up this morning [6:30am] I feel like I did before finding out about fibromyalgia and how I used to feel when I pushed myself and I didn’t understand what it would do to me. Already last night after lying on the couch I cramped up and it was severe and hurt so bad, brought tears to my eyes. I cried out, “this hadn’t happened in a long time.” I scared my husband who was beside me, I went for his hand. I squeezed his hand as the pain was shooting me in and around my life side [ribcage, breast, underneath breast area] the pain “radiated” and spread when I moved. I had to stay still for awhile. I asked my husband to get me my water bottle. I sipped some water and relaxed a bit as much as I could and then was able to move, got up to go to bed.
“I feel like I did when my entire body cramped up from head to toe for the very first time, before finding out about fibromyalgia and I was so afraid of what was happening to me. I could not move for which seemed forever, pain like I never felt before.”
My throat is sore upon waking up, want to drink something warm, I wonder how it will be when I try to get up and walk? I haven’t moved yet and I’m getting a pulsating pain a bit around my right breast area. Also a pulling feeling in my left collar bone. [both feelings come and go.]
I’m gagging like crazy, when I swallow, drinking something warm is helping a bit.
I don’t feel as bad as I thought I would, decided to sit up in the living room for awhile. The warm mug just slipped a bit in my hand, so glad I didn’t drop it.
One thing that makes my day better is wearing my Hanes Women’s X-Temp™ Thermal Printed Crew; I’m loving them. Someone asked me was the pain of yesterday worth standing in the line, waiting and this was worth it. Regular price like $14.00 and I got it yesterday for $4.00. It was worth it for me. They are so comfortable and it really does
adapt to temperature when wearing them. I normally get very hot when I wear long pants and or sleeves to bed, but I was ok sleeping last night. [no night sweats.]

I’m sure my body is going to be in a lot of weird pains today, but I’m going to try and rest, rest, rest.
