Fibro Nights 1

I'm sleepy and tired. I woke up with pain this morning (line of storms came through today) but pushed through and managed to complete about 80% of my to-do list. I need to get a good night's sleep because I will be in training for 8 hours tomorrow. I want sleep. There's no reason for me not to sleep. Oh, wait, yes. That's right. Fibromyalgia. Stupid Fibro!
Tonight the Fibro presents itself in shooting pain from my right hip down my leg, jaw tension, anxiety and general aches. The remedies of Norco, melatonin and self-massage aren't working. I'm hoping eventually I will just *crash*.
I've had two brownies tonight. Maybe I need to start monitoring my symptoms after chocolate. Not that I would ever give up chocolate but ya know, so I can expect it. LOL

P.S. I've decided to vent my FibroFrustrations on my blog in an attempt to whine a little less in real life. That way, if you don't wanna read it- click the X at the top right of your screen. Maybe a fellow FibroFighter will read it and know he or she isn't alone (as strange as it is I think it makes us feel better to know we aren't alone even though we wouldn't wish it on anyone). Or maybe someone who isn't sure why they feel the way they do will stumble across this and has never heard of Fibromyalgia and will become aware. Who knows. Why not?
