Complain about your schedule. Apparently people like that sort of thing.

2019/1/19 Fibromyalgia

Post by fluffy » Sat Jan 19, 2019 1:04 pm

So you know how I've posted a bunch about my wrist problems?

I finally got a diagnosis of the underlying cause.

A bunch of you have already seen this on Facebook and thanks for everyone who replied to me there! I really appreciate it. I've also heard from dozens of people (including the doctor who diagnosed me) about how useful turmeric is, so no need to tell me about that. ;)

Anyway. Having an actual diagnosis is great because it gives me specific things to focus on for recovery and improvement, or at least preventing it from getting worse, and maybe at some point I'll get where I can start making music for Song Fight! again, since I've missed that a lot.

Also, my pain is a big part of why I didn't go to SF Live last year (although I ended up becoming pretty busy with another thing that weekend anyway), so my goal is to get my pain under control enough that I can go to this year's, whenever/wherever it may be.

Not a pretty word or disease. I hope this is the start of some relief.

Fibro. That's tough. My ex suffers from that and I remember it being a daily struggle. Do what Morgan Freeman does to deal with his- large amounts of weed.

I'm definitely on board with the therapeutic benefits of cannabis. Turns out I've been self-medicating fibromyalgia for quite some time now. ;)
