Sorry have been AWOL

Hi All

Just a quick post no card today but wanted to say sorry for being AWOL this week having a really bad flare up with my fibromyalgia for those of you who don't know what this is here are the symptoms

Top Ten Fibromyalgia Symptoms
  • Pain all over
  • Fatigue - Exhaustion can be one of the most incapacitating fibromyalgia symptoms. You may feel as though your arms and legs are weighted down by concrete blocks and your body may be so drained of energy that every task requires great effort.
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Brain fog  - Trouble concentrating, retaining new information, and word-finding are common fibromyalgia symptoms that seriously interfere with daily functioning
  • Morning stiffness
  • Muscle knots, cramping, weakness
  • Digestive disorders - Constipation, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, gas and bloating, irritable bowel, and nausea
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Balance problems
  • Itchy/burning skin
As you can see it is a nasty thing to have and there is no cure although some of the symptoms can be alleviated by medication but then you need other drugs to keep the side effects to a minimum. 

I am finding it difficult to concentrate at anything at the moment am off to bed again shortly but wanted to let you know I am still alive and kicking and will catch up with everyone when I am feeling a bit better.

Love Alison xx
