I kind of guessed that I was heading for a chronic pain flare up by the way my emotions have been all over the place and the fact that I have been unable to sleep and think straight. Today has hit me full force in my legs and although I managed work, I had to visit the doctor this evening and after a warm bath have been in bed since. This is the third doctor that now agrees that I have fibromyalgia and I am seriously having to accept that I am going to have to make some changes to how I do things around here.
In the scheme of things my choice of footwear really shouldn’t be a major issue, but for a girl who loves heels and has such a vast collection, it sometimes is a big thing. Whereas I used to live in heels, over the last couple of years I noticed more and more pain in a short time of wearing them. Even before my physiotherapist and doctor suggested I had developed fibro, I was rarely wearing them any more as it was just too painful. I have worn flats when running around after Megan and at work for a long time now, but wearing them out is still alien to me, especially when out on a date or dinner with friends.
Recently though, I have started to move away from the ‘flat is practical’ mentality and more towards the ‘flat can be cute and fun’ train of thought. As I have been unable to do anything this evening I have
wisely spent my time looking for inspiration on Pinterest – as you do! I am in love with these!
I’ve also realised that it’s time for Friday’s Letters – duh! I’ve only been waiting for this day all week. We’ll blame the meds for my forgetfulness!
Dear Dave, seriously, what would I do without you?? You’ve put up with a crazy lady all week. A complete emotional, pain ridden mess! You are completely amazing and I still don’t know what I did to deserve you xxx Dear Mum, thank you for all your help this week. It was nice to have some time with you on my day off. I will try not to cry as much next time! Dear inspiration, thank you for returning! I’m a bit overwhelmed with what you have come up with this week, but fingers crossed I have the strength to see it through and to share it with everyone soon! Dear weekend, I am so ready for you and to rest. Even though I am gutted that Dave won’t be here half of it, I need to stop and do nothing for a couple of days. I had planned some DIY projects and gardening to keep me busy whilst Dave was away but they will have to wait. Bring on some lay ins and some sun 🙂
Have a great weekend lovelies
