To whom it may concern,
Today is a difficult day. My back pain has really got to me today. I achieved so much yesterday, but I have had to come back to bed this morning. I’ve been in a fibromyalgia flare for 4 weeks now, belly flopping on and off, on a roller-coaster ride and in a boom and bust cycle of fatigue, pain and short lived moments of energy. I know it is pre- and post exam related. I know the only way to deal with and stabilise it is to pace and rest. But it’s a pain, literally and metaphorically! It’s hard sometimes not to feel sorry for myself. I know there are friends and folks in a much worse situation than me. Grrr! I would be grateful if you would find your way to relieve me of the pain.
