Hey there fellow chronic warriors. Who else here finds themselves involuntarily rolling the dice when it comes to showering 👋.
I love showers. Long boiling hot 🥵 showers. They are my saviour; they are my downfall. It can go either way. From one shower to the next there is no way of knowing.
The other day after a shower, I bee bopped my way down the hall ready to conquer my kitchen. Today, I’m not dried off yet and all I can think about is crawling into bed.
I feel drained, zapped — depleted of all physical energy, and my brain is foggy.
It’s not all bad though. Standing under the hot shower stream relieved my pain a little, and right now I’m toasty warm. No chills in my body whatsoever.
But, I’m super tired, kind of dizzy and need to lay down.
And so, that’s what I’m going to do. Admit defeat in today’s game of Fibromyalgia Shower Roulette. Cut myself some slack, and allow myself to rest up. We have an outing tonight that I’m looking forward to. I’m going to attempt a guilt free catnap 😴
Wish me luck 🤞 Sending gentle hugs and healing vibes your way. Maybe I’ll catch you over on Instagram or Facebook.
