Fibro Feelings – Falling Back

What is Fibro Feelings?

Our weather wasn’t the best for trick-or-treating this year and I’m hoping that is why we had a lot less visitors to our house this year. I ended up with way too much candy left over and too many glow bracelets too. Since I buy cheap glow bracelets from the $1 bin at Target they don’t always last another year. Maybe I should just start wearing them for fun? hehe. I watched It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown as I like to do every year. I typically don’t like re-watching movies or TV shows, but the Peanuts holiday shows are classics that I love.

Last weekend was the time daylight savings ended for most of us in the U.S. and I always look forward to that extra hour of sleep. I’d had a bad night of insomnia the night before, so it was perfect timing. I was so proud of myself for setting my alarm clock back before I went to bed, but I accidentally set it an hour ahead instead of an hour back. When I woke up the next morning I thought I’d REALLY slept in! I was happy to find out it was really two hours earlier than my clock said. I’ve since moved all my clocks back and enjoyed waking up a little earlier each day.

My body is doing this odd thing where I (and The Helpful Hubby) have been staying up extra late though and then waking up a little earlier. I’m sure that is slowly going to fade back to normal and I just hope it does before my body crashes from it. You may be thinking that there is an easy solution to that – just going to bed earlier. For some reason my body just will not go to bed earlier than when I normally feel tired and go to bed. If I try I just end up laying there for hours until the normal time I would have gone to bed.

One last note – it is election day in the U.S. so please remember to cast your ballot if you’ve over 18! I try not to get too political on my site, but voting is an amazing privilege that we shouldn’t take for granted.

How was your Halloween or time change?


Don’t forget to vote!*

I really do not like the time change. It gets dark early so my body says time to go to bed, then I wake up so early. I will adjust ( I hope) in a few more days
