My body betrayed me this weekend. I guess I should not be surprised. I’ve been fighting this illness for many years and this year I have tried even harder to suppress the pain that fibromyalgia presents to me. I just never know when it’s going to spring up and bite me in the butt. I know cold and winter is my enemy. Yesterday, it literally bit me in the butt when I fell on the driveway while clearing 6 inches of snow. Ouch!
I had my heart set on going to the Hamilton Electors Vigil tonight and stressed over ways to go and chance more problems or not. Ultimately, I decided my body just wouldn’t handle the cold at night, let alone having to deal with transportation and waiting in the cold for Lyft or Uber, since I can’t drive at night. Yes, fibro has affected my vision at night somewhat as well.
I cannot stand to be one who talks and not act, so dear friends who are standing out in the cold, I empathize with you and am there in spirit. I support you and wish with all my heart I was standing with you for this cause I believe in.
