    Not sleeping well?

    Here’s a way to turn a not-so-fun experience of bad sleep into a fun game in the morning.

    Nothing’s wrong, but something’s not right

    Went in for some bloodwork because I was finding no relief for my fibromyalgia. Sent me to the rheumatologist’s where I was lucky enough to snag a cancelled appointment! More blood work was drawn, still only my sed rate was out of wack. So here I am, hardly able to get around, pushing myself into isolation, putting on a brave face for everyone else, only to see all my bloodwork looks mostly okay. It sucks. Now, I didn’t want anything bad to be wrong with me, but being exactly where I was five years ago, without much relief can really bring a person down. Upped some of my medication, may have noticed a bit of a difference, but it has mostly made me really tired (no more insomnia though!). On the bright side, I quit gluten six weeks ago and lost 32 pounds! #Brightside #Fibromyalgia #Depression

    Insomnia is the Pitts

    This is my fourth time waking up tonight. I officially give up attempting to sleep, as completely worn out as I am. I’ll probably fall asleep when my fiancé’s phone it’s off. My sleep meds seriously can’t come fast enough. #Brightside #Insomnia #Ineomniac #Cantsleep #SleepDeprivation #SleepDisorders #tired

    Hypomanic blessing: I can finally keep up with my twin 5 year olds. 🙌🏼
