Recent happenings

Sorry for the lapse of posting! It's been a seriously busy time at home and work, and I was on vacation last week, so its been hard to find the time to sit down and type something out. :)

Things have been going fairly well the last month or so, but recently I've been having some minor reminders that, no, I'm not your "normal" 26 year old... And yet, life continues, and there's no way to put off what needs to be done, so I push through and ignore/pretend nothings wrong. And to be honest, its not really bad considering the past flares I've had changing and challenging life as I know it for weeks at a time, so that at least is a small blessing. I hope that things begin to clear up and go back to normal as I know it, but I suppose only time will tell. As I mentioned, its only minor. Just some extra fatigue, and the feeling of having a bruise over my entire body. For some reason my skin/muscles have been pretty tender lately, and even the most innocent contact has been leaving me feeling like someone hit me with a stick or something. Its ridiculous really, and hard to explain when someone pokes you or you accidentally run into something (I know, I'm supremely coordinated lately...) and it actually hurts like something more serious happened, but nonetheless, it is true. 

I'm also happy to report that it FINALLY rained today. Now if you read my last post, you're wondering if I've gone completely off my rocker, because rain and barometric pressure changes cause me to really feel some extra symptoms/pain. But, I've been feeling like rain has been coming for the last few days, and its been pretty horrible. So the fact that it DID rain, means that things will (hopefully) be going back to normal fairly soon. Which is sweet! I've been trying to remind myself to get up and walk around every 20 minutes or so, otherwise when I get up, I have some serious issues trying to move...and man does it hurt! I feel like I'm 90 and need my hip replaced or something...its insane, and hopefully almost over for the time being.

Other than that, life's been pretty unremarkable...And let me tell you, when you have a chronic disease/disorder- unremarkable is a blessing in disguise... Hope everyone is enjoying the amazing weather! It's been so nice out lately. Maybe I'll head to the peninsula for a walk...
