Every year I forget that when the weather is changing and getting colder that my body hurts more. I realised last week why my knees are sorer again, the weather is getting colder again, duh!
Overall, I am very fortunate that I don’t feel throughout the year that I have fibromyalgia. Only in the summer when the humidity is higher and when the weather (fall and winter) is getting colder. Those two are the moments that I realise right I still have fibromyalgia. I never believed I am cured of fibromyalgia, because there is still no cure for it, yet. Like I said, I am one of the lucky one that doesn’t have trouble the whole year around. It used to be different. Somehow, I found a way to deal with it and somehow it became less. I am very grateful for it.
I do know people that are not as lucky as I am. Some are already done after the shower. They can’t do anything anymore for the rest of the day. One thing I do have pay attention to my tendons. When I overdoing it, it is infected. It is not like, I get a warning from my body, stop, you overdoing it. Okay, you have a bit pain but it will be fine if you take some rest. In my case, I do get the warning but somehow my body decided to attack in an aggressive way, let attack Infections! We are going have a blast! She has been stupid and overdid again, party time for us!!! Whoop, whoop!!
There are no proves yet that it is caused by fibromyalgia. But lot of people that have fibromyalgia also very often struggling with infections. Or they get other things that are
related to fibromyalgia.
However, it might sound strange, but in a way, I am grateful. Because of what happened made me appreciate things more, be grateful for every progress I am making. For all the new things I have learned because of it, new people, new talents. I am not happy that I got an old body even though I am not old, but I have learned to deal with it. Realising that life is not that bad, there are so many great things in small things. I still can do a lot compared to a good friend of mine. I am grateful for my family, my friends, I still have a roof over my head, I still can pay for food.
My life will always be a bumpy ride, but just because of it, I learned to set smaller goals and be happy with all that I can accomplish.
