A night of fun = A day of pain

Why is it that when we spend a night out having fun we have to pay for it all day the next day? My friend Lella and her boyfriend, Allen, had us over for a cookout and to play cards last night. We went about 6 PM and came home about 2 AM and had a GREAT time. However, the old monster Fibro raised it's ugly head this morning when I tried to get out of bed. It took me several minutes, and tries to even move. Of course I slept so hard and I had laid on my back -- which is a NO NO that I thought it was broken. After I finally managed to get up came the legs and arms and on and on. Gee it's the best time I've had in ages and then today is crap. :(

They say to pace yourself and make sure you get rest. I took a nap yesterday and didn't get up until 3 PM to get ready to go. So it's not like I was up all day and night. But I feel like I was drunk (NO we weren't drinking) and walked out in front of a truck. Maybe if I was drinking I still wouldn't feel it LOL

I write this knowing that only those of you that have this dreaded curse can understand. Others say it's cause you're getting older, need to exercise more, blah, blah, blah. I really dislike those people that think all you have to do is exercise and eat veggies and you'll be just fine. I don't think setting in a chair and eating has anything to do with lack of exercise. Well that's my gripe for the day and aren't you glad I'm finished with it :) Maybe next time we'll play football or go roller skating so I can have a reason to feel this way.

I'm sorry I haven't been here much, but life keeps keeping me away from here. I am pretty sure my comment section is working now so I'm hoping some of you will let me know what subjects you would like for me to discuss. I saw a very interesting subject (at least for women) on another website that I am planning on discussing soon. It seems that I am not the only one that thinks the "bra companies" should come up with a Fibro friendly version. What do you think? More to come on that later.

Also coming up is my life as "The Princess and the Pea" -- so stay tuned and keep coming back.

God's Blessings for pain free days for all of you -- Darla

As a fellow sufferer I can certainly understand your frustrations at those who suggest more exercise.

Bit like telling someone with no legs that jogging is good for them *rolls eyes*
