Being productive, and people wanting things from you

Fibromyalgia is exhausting to have. That exhaustion permeates every aspect of my life. It’s always accompanied by its BFF, pain, and dealing with both of them all the time is difficult. It’s kind of like they’re people I have to care for and plan my life around, even though I really don’t want to. I experience a lot of guilt, because of my personality type, … Continue reading Being productive, and people wanting things from you

accepting pain and the unknown

It happened again this morning. I was thinking about working from a coffee shop today. Sounds easy enough, right? Not when you’re chronically ill, and highly sensitive. You have to consider a lot of things that other people don’t. Like, I typically like coffee shop environments. They’re made to be comfortable, and workable. The ambiance is something I can work with for a while. I … Continue reading accepting pain and the unknown

So I’d been doing well with posts, and I’m also doing that IG tarot challenge. I mean, if I’m going to kick it, why not kick it hard?

HSPs are often affected by lighting, sounds, smells, colors, etc. in ways that most people aren’t. My transitional situation at home has been stressing me out. We’re … Continue reading color & emotion

This morning my eyes were puffy from crying, my head ached, my body was tight and painful – fibromyalgia is always a phenomenal addition to any of life’s tribulations, if the experience itself wasn’t enough to make one physically ill, don’t worry, fibromyalgia will take care of that… I felt heavy, yet thin, … Continue reading energy & music

Cures are False Hope.

There are things that bother me about the communities that exist for chronic illnesses and chronic pain, that are really things that just bother me in general. I get how talking about your condition can be good, it can be therapeutic, and it can raise awareness, create points of connection between people, and help others dealing with the same things. There are beautiful moments of … Continue reading Cures are False Hope.
