I was happy when the weather warmed up enough that it was time to start wearing dresses. I started this last year. Before then I had only worn these to church. Now I wear them almost every day. It has very little to do with looking cute.
The first reason is that they don’t touch as much of my skin as pants, which means there’s less pain from the simple fact of wearing clothes and if you have fibromyalgia you understand this. The second reason is that it’s a lot cooler. It’s one of those things that looks totally different if you don’t know I’m sick.
I’ve found that even on days when I don’t feel good I can still find at least one perfect moment. I was too sick to go on a hike or even walk very far so I went and sat outside for awhile. There was a guy playing this cool harmonica and it made me smile. I wondered if it was something I could learn. He was just playing “Home on the Range” and he wasn’t even good. It was just unexpected I guess and matched the mood of the morning. What was your perfect moment of the day?
I often blog about how quickly a flare can hit. However, for those who currently aren’t feeling well it can also turn around just as quickly. Last week was awful for me pain wise. This week I’ve been sleeping better and I have been feeling so much better too. Granted, I’m just back at my normal pain level, maybe slightly worse. It just feels so much better than it did last week that it’s a big relief. So keep fighting, it does get better.
