I'm going to give it to you straight. I'm struggling! I think I've entered the joys of what is known as a "fibro flare-up". It started toward the end of last week and is hanging on for dear life. I am so extremely tired I'm afraid to drive anywhere because I'm afraid I will fall asleep at the wheel. When I wake up in the morning I feel like I haven't slept at all and that my body somehow went from being 33 to 95 overnight. My hands are so stiff and swollen when I wake up I can't use them for an hour or more. I have to fix the girls' hair before they go to bed at night because I just can't make my hands do it in the morning. All of my joints ache and my head hasn't stopped pounding for days. In short, I feel terrible.
Last night I decided I was going to quit my blog. I used to love it, but the last couple of weeks have been hard. I am so behind on housework and helping the kiddos with homework and piano lessons it is ridiculous. I haven't cooked a real dinner in almost a week. I feel like my life is unraveling and there is not a thing I can do about it.
I'm sad becuase I have gotten to know so many amazing people and my linky parties are starting to take off and my followers are starting to climb pretty quickly. But I just can't do it...not right now. I don't know if I'm going to quit it for keeps or just for a little bit, but I have to give myself permission to stop for now. I'll see how I feel when my "flare-up" decides to "flare-down" and I get my real life under control again. I will still post things if I think they are awesome, but I'm not going to push myself to do it everyday.
Thanks for understanding.
