Well, November ended with a bang. As the title suggests I am having a run of bad luck right now. Eddie worked last night from 4 to 10 PM. I left about 9:20 to get him. It’s about a 15-minute drive. The first 5 minutes are on the old highway which we live on and then I went up the ramp onto Highway 101. As I got off the ramp and started picking up speed and heading down the hill to the bear river bridge when suddenly a deer jumped in front of me from the left.
Fibromyalgia & Oseoarthritis
One thing I have noticed over the years since being diagnosed in my early 20’s with fibromyalgia is that it tends to intensify everything else that is going on. Whether it is a psych issue such as anxiety or depression, a physical issue such as osteoarthritis or a disease such as type 2 diabetes, fibromyalgia seems to make dealing with them so much harder. I have learned a lot over the years about my chronic illnesses but there are times when they still take me by surprise and times when I wish things could go back to the days before any of this started affecting me. If there ever really was such days. Honestly, I can’t really remember a time that I didn’t get sick easily or injured easily. Even as a child I had strep throat and ear infections constantly. I caught everything going around from rubella as a baby to chickenpox to scarlet fever mumps, measles, and hand, foot, and mouth among others. I’m surprised I didn’t have the plague to be absolutely honest.
