Puzzle Pieces

Here are some of the puzzle pieces.  There are more, but I’m still cataloging and have a pile more reading to do.  I was just turned down to be in a study about how changes in hormone levels can change other hormone levels.  In this case, they are studying the effect of estrogen and progesterone levels on growth hormone production.  Growth hormone production is a piece in the fibro puzzle, so I wanted to see what would happen if I participated.  Rejected…  BUT I’m heartened to know that there is a study about hormone levels affecting other hormone levels.  I’m not way off in right field without a baseball glove…. During football season.


A Great Weekend

And so today, I’m walking in to work like a 90-year-old woman with a limp.  I feel like I have a fever with a normal temperature.  I’m on sensory overload.  I don’t see things – they hit me in the face.  My ears are on their last legs – the slightest noise is painful and the constant relentless noise of normal life around me is a cacophonous nightmare.  My skin hurts.  I may have been scalped last night – my scalp hurts.  What’s up with that?  Inside my head hurts too.  My muscles are sore to the point of knotting up if I move wrong, and sometimes when I don’t move. My eyes are on a vacation from clear vision.  I have to check the bottom of my feet to see if Legos have been taped to them.  I have to remember to relax my shoulders or they creep up to cuddle with my ears.  Neck and back are stiff and sore.  I’m exhausted….

I had the best time this weekend.  I’m not regretting it in the least.  And I won’t regret it tomorrow either.
