old and familiar

you know those old, familiar things...your favorite pair of jeans, that comfy old skirt, or those slippers you dream of slipping into....not all old, familiar things are so comforting.

the past two days, i've awaken to the old familiar...pain.  the deep sharp pains in my hands, feet, knees, back, hips...you get the picture.  If I could point to something and say "this is why it hurts" it would be different.  I have RA, which is part of the pain.  but the majority...is fibromyalgia.  i don't look sick.  i don't generally act sick either.  but i am sick.  MM deals with it the best he can...but he doesn't "get it", you know?  and others don't really get it either...i mean, I've heard about how i should lose weight, how I should just "do more" or how I don't *really* have fibro.  yea, i have it.  yea, i have all the points in the "diagnostic" test.  yeah...it's miserable.

that's where I am today.  hurting.  with lots to do.  and still goin.  hey hey.
