I have now been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The doctor advised aerobic exercise, meditation, an antidepressant, a muscle relaxant, and less stress. Not entirely sure how I'm supposed to manage the last. Especially when I have days like this one, which start with my sandal breaking and end with the discovery the guy we've been trying to talk to all day didn't realize we weren't in his time zone.
The antidepressant also isn't one with a high success rate. I'm probably going to try the muscle relaxant first, although given both medications could exacerbate the other medical issue I'm having right now, I'm not too eager to try either. I can redo my exercise regimen and try to figure out how to meditate, but it looks like I just have to live with yet more pain in my life.
This weekend my mother, sister, and I are headed to the beach, where we are supposed to relax. Maybe if we actually do, the pain will be reduced? I'll try to get the next part of "Habeas for Superheroes" posted tomorrow, before then. Three more multiparters I worked on today that I am really close to finishing the next part...
At least I'm not stressing about Agents of SHIELD anymore. I'm even kind of optimistic the next season will be a bit more fun, if it's the right kind of outer space adventure for that. Besides, none of the things I dreaded happened last night.

That always frustrates me when doctors say to avoid stress, as if most of us seek it out. Although I can relate to a rough start to the day! The strap to my (brand new) chemise broke at work, yesterday. Despite my coworker and I both being extremely stocked and prepared, there wasn't a safety pin to be found anywhere. I ended up stapling it back together. LOL Thankfully, the shrug hid this, and I was able to laugh about it, later.

In all seriousness, I do hope the doctor is able to find a treatment that works for you.
