I’m hurting today. It’s actually kind of a relief… I have been feeling less than awesome for several days and yesterday evening I felt like I was being crushed by gravity. No explanation, just bad. Today I woke up achy all over, from the tips of my fingers to the soles of my feet. Turns out its fibromyalgia time. It means that the next few days are gonna be a little rough, but at least it explains what has been going on for the last week. My energy has been steadily decreasing, and my willingness to eat right and work out has hit an all-time low (or at least all time since I actually started DOING it on a regular basis), and I was starting to worry that I was running up against the end of my willingness. That scared the hell out of me. The up side to the story is that it has been so long since I HAD an episode I forgot the warning signs and symptoms. That’s progress I can be grateful for.
My meeting with the nutritionist went well. She seems to think that I have some serious gut issues that, once diagnosed and addressed, will not only make me feel better, but will greatly enhance my body’s ability to lose weight. Of course little or none of the expense is covered by insurance, but as luck would have it there is a ton of interest in the Big Boys catalog right now (Thanks Light in the Attic!) and we just sold several songs to 3 different TV shows & movies, so I have the extra money I need to cover the expense. Funny how that works… Now I just have to be willing to spend the money. My darling bride helps with that. Or insists… whatever… Tests will be run. Solutions will (fingers crossed) be found. Life WILL be better.
See you in a few days when the aches and pains have subsided.
