    Today was a good day.

    So yeah today was a fun day. I'M feeling tired now. The weather is starting to go #cold . Oh the joy of #Winter It's strange how #sad doesn't hot till night time.

    Does anyone else get really emotional when they're unwell?

    I know that a lot of us feel unwell most of the time. That probably wasn't a very well phrased title. But what I mean is... Do you get easily upset when you have a cold/flu/infection?

    As an example, back in May I picked up a very nasty stomach bug (that my baby nephew ever-so-lovingly decided to share)... And for the entire day, I just kept breaking down into tears. For pretty much no reason. I don't know if it was frustration or if I'd just had enough... But I've noticed it happens every time I'm unwell.

    I've had a cold for about a week now (several COVID tests have come back negative, despite me being certain this isn't an ordinary cold), and I just keep breaking down at the drop of a hat. My sister brought me a slice of my favourite cake from my favourite bakery and I burst into tears. The level of emotion is crazy. I don't like crying even when I'm feeling okay, so when I suddenly start sobbing, I get angry at myself and then usually end up crying more... I keep wondering if it's simply exhaustion? I'm immuno-compromised, so what other people would call a mild illness, is usually something that knocks me off my feet.

    I'd just like to know if there's anyone else out there that's like this? And if you know of a way I could maybe minimise the tears? I feel so silly.

    #cold Weather #Fibromyalgia Flare up

    Had some trigger point injections done yesterday for my Fibromyalgia & this morning I’m having a flare up due to the cold weather..


    Fun and games

    After the ear infection two weeks ago, I haven’t completely recovered. They’ve booked me in for a hearing test next week but let’s hope it’s all fine.

    I can’t catch a break though. A few days ago, I came down with a sore throat. A cold (not covid- two of us had tests for non-related reasons) had been passing through the family so I figured it was that. But this was bad and getting worse so I looked in the mirror with a torch and long story short, I have tonsillitis!

    On Friday I had come home from holiday and I was going to wait to call the doctors on Monday to see if it got any better, but my mother suggested I call them on the same day so I did. Good call as I’ve been getting worse and now feel absolutely rubbish.

    I’m not one to sit and feel sorry for myself. I’ll always do my best to get up moving and doing stuff, but for some reason I’ve been hit hard. Eating feels like running a marathon, I had to crawl up the stairs earlier because I was getting so dizzy walking up them, and everything just hurts (noise is actually physically painful!). At least the paracetamol makes me feel more normal when it finally hits.

    In brighter news, I’ve got my second vaccine booked for next week. I’ve heard the second one is worse than the first though, so that’ll be fun! (last time I couldn’t move my arm much for a week, and I need my arm for my job and I have a full week of working so we’ll see how it goes!).

    Oh! One thing I forgot- been referred to ENT for postnasal drip that is no longer affected by anything I take for it and is keeping me up at night. ENT are loving me!

    Raynauds and Heart Rate

    It's very cold in SA at the moment which is not helping my Raynauds at all. My heart rate has gone as low as 35 today due to the cold. Has anyone else with Raynauds experienced low heart rate? #RaynaudsPhenomenon #PsoriaticArthritis #Spondyloarthritis #cold

    Saint Petersburg #Winter #saintpetersburg #

    The climate of Saint Petersburg is close to that of Helsinki, although colder in winter and warmer in summer because of its more eastern location.

    WINTER CHILL / BELOW FREEZING TEMPS. #cold #Pain #Fibromyalgia

    Its round 21° now ( was 13-17° during the night). Chilly temps aggravate fibro pain. And I have to be careful my cat,Gracie, & my 6 hermit crabs, don't get sick. As a matter of fact, I'm striking up the 🔥- I'm gonna turn on the range to keep everyone here well. ( I did install a smoke AND carbon monoxide detector after getting carbon monoxide poisoning from the glam going out in the night😉)
