Fibro Feelings – Easter Decor

I plan for this to be a reoccurring segment in my blog. The purpose of Fibro Feelings is to help depict what average days and tasks are like when living with fibromyalgia. I will be completely real about what it is like and I hope that does not come across as being negative. The honest details I share are much different than how I would describe the same situation to a friend during casual conversation. I hope Fibro Feelings will help friends, family members and coworkers understand what it is like for those living with fibromyalgia and other chronic diseases. I also hope to give others with chronic diseases someone to relate to.

“Spring forward” did a dusey on my body! I’ve been feeling exhausted and sore all day due to having difficulties falling asleep and then getting poor sleep once I finally fell asleep. All day long it has felt as if my eye lids have weights pulling them down. Too bad I can’t ever nap during the day!

Over 5 hours and with many breaks, I managed to put all my Easter décor out. It really makes me feel cheery! I know decorating for holidays can seem cumbersome to some. It always seems like there is holiday/season décor to display or pack away. For me, the enjoyment I get out of having a decorated house makes up for it! I just feel more excited about life and the current holidays and seasons when I’ve decorated for them. Without these decorations I feel like my home is just a house. I’m sure this is also because I grew up with a mom who seasonally decorated.

After I rested from decorating I cooked dinner. While in the kitchen I tried to unscrew the cap on our soy sauce bottle to refill it and had no success. Even with trying typical lid removal tricks it didn’t budge. Instead it gave me incredible pain in both my palms. Where my hand had gripped over the pour spouts it felt as it someone was taking a chop stick and ramming it into my palm as hard as they possibly could. That pain lasted about 20 minutes. As usual, I felt completely worn out after cooking so I relaxed on the couch and watched Hoarders and House.
