Oh what to say...

It's been awhile since I have posted. Winter has been fairly mild here in Minnesota all things considered. The last few days have been seasonably cold. We currently have little to no snow which is weird.

In January, after feeling achy and tired one too many times I finally relented and went to the doctor where I learned that I have fibromyalgia. Of the 18 different tender points used to diagnose fibromyalgia, I have 12. Or at least I had twelve on that day. After reading everything I could find on this disease I concur with my doctor. I have so many of the symptoms it's scary. But in the end it's a relief to know that it has a name. My case seems to be fairly mild except when I have a flare up and then I am in utter pain and fatigue.

My SAD has been pretty good this winter. I attribute that to meds.
