    I’m so sick and tired... Of feeling sick and tired.

    I have no idea what’s going on with me at the moment. I don’t know if I’m coming down with a cold/flu or if my body is just starting to give up on me...

    Since the 27th September I’ve had this CONSTANT queasy feeling that has left me eating very very tiny amounts of food - perhaps half a meal every couple of days (if that). I’ve even been struggling to drink. And last Wednesday evening I started to ache all over my body so much that I was crying an awful lot. Then on Thursday I was very badly congested - I assumed I was starting to develop a cold. But by Friday nearly all of my symptoms were gone; I just ached a little bit. But since then I’ve stayed in this very unpleasant place since then where the cold actually feels like it’s hurting me. I have not had any fever at all.

    And then starting from this morning it just feels as though every muscle in my body is extremely stiff and sore. I can barely raise a cup to my lips and brushing my teeth was nearly impossible. It’s almost like I’ve been working out or weight lifting, which is something I haven’t done in years. The back of my throat is a bit scratchy and sometimes my nose begins to run a little but when I blow it there’s nothing coming out.

    I’ve taken my bed time medication early I’m hopefully going to fall asleep soon. So, like the title says... I’m so sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. Do you think this could be the flu? I haven’t been able to have my vaccine yet as my GP surgery is waiting for more stock to arrive. Usually by October I’ve already had it done. I haven’t had the flu in at least four or five years, thankfully. It always knocks me on my ass for a very long time when I have had it before.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Aching Ribs #Aches

    The past few weeks I have been waking up with aching ribs. At first I thought it was because of my bra being too tight but I realised this wasn’t the cause. I wondered if it’s to do with my mattress. Or is this just the usual aches from Fibromyalgia? It feels like I’ve been punched all round my rib cage. Anyone else experience this?


    When you’re in it- feels like you will never get out

    Body hurts. Aches. Pains. Anxious. Worried. Trying to keep my mind off it. These are trying times. #Anxiety #Aches #Pain #worry

    #Aches & #Pain

    I have a knee scope on the 25th and an appointment on the 31st that could make all the difference for my hand pain so I've been trying to stay as far away from people as I could because I didn't want to get sick before the procedure. I'm off my medicine until the surgery and #Pain got the best of me today so I went to the Aquatic Center where I could get a hot therapeutic pain relief workout. I've never been so thankful for chlorinated water


    Body Aches and Wanting to Give Everything Up

    In the last couple of days, the body aches have come and progressed. It’s usually when my body hurts is when I sink deeper into sadness because I feel like I can never reach the goals that I’ve had in mind for the day. I’ve reached a point mentally where I feel the need to give up on people and certain situations. I’ve even had moments where I’ve said to myself:” I give up... I just give up.” I start thinking of past events up to this point and it drives me to sadness, anger, and ultimately just feeling “done”. I tend to hold on to hope that maybe things will change, and I’m deeply saddened or frustrated. They were once good in my eyes and now they are nothing to me in an instant. I want nothing to do with them, but I change my mind when things seem good. Lately, I’ve felt like maybe it is better that I just isolate myself from them for a while, I’ve convinced myself that my existence is not that important to them anyway. #Depression #MentalHealth #bodyaches #Aches #givingup #Isolation #Sadness #feelingblue

    I’m giving up on trying to #Sleep every night! I’m waking up every 2 hours because of the #SleepWakeDisorders from the #ChronicPain . Television is my only #salvation from the #Pain , it takes my mind off of the #Anxiety from the #Aches but especially the #Migraines which keeps me up. I’ve even given up on #eating from the #Pain !



    My first post! Holiday Anxiety drive me to the happy I am to find out the website I read so often has a community attached. Hopeful this will be helpful. #Anxiety #anxious #SleepingSickness #tired #BingeEatingDisorder #Aches
