Down For The Count

I am down for the count.  I am so exhausted I can barely keep my eyes open.  I just woke up from lightly napping on the couch, and now ready to go to bed.

This morning I did not feel this bad, with the normal daily muscle pains and achy joints.  I did all the Aussies, a few times throughout the morning, even planning on going for a walk this afternoon.  I did all the Crabby Cabbie invoicing, which took me most of the morning.

About 1:30 pm  Rob and I had ourselves lunch, also doing a couple errands afterwards.  We got home and I hit the couch.  

Now?  I can barely move my body it is so heavy, and I just do not feel the best.  I have an appointment with the specialist tomorrow, and it is one I can not miss so I must get over this fairly quickly.

What I am going to share is something hopefully others can understand, which was also recently talked about between a fellow Fibromyalgia sufferer and myself.  Please take a moment to read the "Spoon Theory" if you be so inclined to do so by *clicking* HERE.

I can identify wholly with the following excerpt:

Its hard, the hardest thing I ever had to learn is to slow down, and not do everything.

This is what I have still not been able to learn to do, and something I battle within myself every day.  It also bothers me that I live in a mess most some most days as I am unable to get things done when I have these bad days.

Here is a bit of something to get us all in the mood to celebrate the upcoming Easter Weekend.:

That is all she wrote, as I am heading for my bed since I have run myself out of spoons for the rest of this day, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. the spoon theory really explains things well.

  2. Hope it soon passes Cindy.
    Been having issues too. Unfortunately don't have a specialist OR a supportive GP.

  3. Good article, thanks for sharing. I think that a lot of us can relate to the "spoon story", it's a great way of explaining our limitations.

  4. I have a friend with Lupus it really runs her life but she is a trooper regardless and does what she can to keep going in life ! Hope you get your R&R and feel better for the Easter weekend !

  5. I'm so sorry Cindy. I've just been suffering with back pain for a week and already I'm fed up with just laying around. Funnily enough the injury was caused by my inability to SLOW DOWN!!! So frustrating!


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
