Weekly roundup

I’m having a hard time writing and reading because I’ve had such a horrific relapse, but I thought I’d reblog my friend Jak’s latest post because it describes pretty well exactly how my body is feeling right now. I’ll update soon when the muscle pain and blinding headaches ease up.

Mast Cells & Collagen Behaving Badly

OK, what the fuck happened?!  Last weekend I felt great: painted the side of my shed and drove myself 30 miles to the city for a mooch round the shops, then woke up Monday morning with my period and feeling like I’d been hit by a 2 ton truck.  Didn’t think much of it, as my period always makes me as rough as a badger’s bum for a few days, but it’s now over and I feel worse than ever.

    I’m so sorry you’re still so sick. I thought I was loosing my marbles for a second because I started reading Jak’s post- without noticing that you had made a little comment, and re-blogged it.

What I’m hoping for right now is the occasional good day. Let’s start there. I hope tomorrow is better than today!

    Oops- meant to say ‘keep letting us know how you’re doing WHEN YOU’RE UP TO IT’. The last thing you need is readers pushing you to write!
