I Ain't Right Story

I know I never blog about my experience with fibromyalgia often enough.  I post on Facebook more often but not enough their either.  I always believe I will and try to do better but life gets in the way.  And pain.  Pain gets in the way.

Anyway, here is my latest story.  The setup is a little religious but the story is not really.  

I like to watch a religious channel on Saturday evenings.   They have gospel and Christian music.  Afterwards they have an hour where there is someone featured.  Usually a single musician performs but sometimes a comedian.  

There is one in particular that talks about his life and how crazy it is every day.  Then he will say "I ain't right.  And God loves me anyway."  So here is my "I ain't right story".  

I have been having a particularly rough week pain-wise.  Just like everyone else with fibromyalgia I hurt all the time but there are times it is worse.  I still work so it is a struggle every day to get up and get going.  This day was particularly rough.

I usually take my medicine and wait for about 5 minutes for the pain pills to kick in so I can get dressed.  This particular morning I kept waiting and waiting.  I finally had to text my boss and tell her I was going to be late.  

My dog was whining at me.  I was trying to figure out how to get my dog her medicine.  Sometimes the simplest tasks seem so complicated.  At that point I realized I still had my pain medication and my blood pressure medication in my hand.  

I had been sitting there for over thirty minutes waiting for my medicine to kick in.  I ain't right.  FibroFog is a wonderful thing - NOT.  Fibromyalgia does things to my mind and my body.  

I hope I made you laugh a little.  Humor is a good thing.  It is healing.  What funny stories do you have?
