lurks within your body and
mind, just waiting for your
Sometimes, you are not even aware that it is there, but it is – just waiting for someone to piss you off, or for something to go wrong in your day.
I know when stress is my trigger, because I can be feeling almost human some days, although I am still in pain, but my mind is accustom to tolerating the pain, therefore my body is not totally reacting to how bad I may feel. However, as soon as a STRESSOR enters my mind, such as: me worrying about this disease that effects your eyes and dries your tears, therefore you suffer from severely dry eyes and mouth, and the fact that it is an autoimmune disease as well, and how many auto-immune diseases can a body withstand?; Or, when I have to grab my head, my side, back, and legs at night while trying to sleep because the pain is off the hook; or worrying about this vibrating feeling I feel inside my legs, and sometimes my arms, mainly when I am laying in bed trying to sleep — I feel like, “what is happening to me”?
These are just a few examples of thoughts (STRESSORS) that trigger my Fibro and makes it even worse. Before you know it, my pain is off the charts on a scale of -1-10. Has anyone experienced these feelings? I realize that I am not the only one who lives in pain, or that have other medical challenges; and I pray that I will learn to rely on the faith and strength within my heart and soul to keep my mind calm of all these whoa-unto-dooms-day thoughts.
Just another day in the life of Fibromyalgia…
