Not a great day, but not all bad. I just don’t have any energy, despite sleeping long and well last night. I kept waking up this morning but each time my eyes were heavy and stung so I just went back to sleep. I eventually got up at 9:30am because someone was knocking at my door. I curled up on the sofa after that. It takes me awhile to come around, when I say awhile I mean at least an hour or two.
I was very achy this morning, all I wanted to do was lay flat. I’m still achy but I find that sometimes if I just walk around my house now and then it helps. Usually when I make a cup of tea in the morning I’ll pace around the kitchen a few times whilst the kettle is boiling. I’m also that incredibly irritating person that everybody cringes at – I click any part of my body I can. I’m not sure why but sometimes it helps, for a short while anyway.
I have a headache, it’s one of those headaches that keeps dying down then coming back. I’m sure I mutter those words to myself or others at least once a day “I have a headache”. My skin is really itchy today, mainly my back and arms, it drives me insane. A couple of times today I’ve gone really warm, it’s odd because it lasts for about 2 minutes then my temperature feels normal. My right elbow keeps threatening to hurt, I say threaten because it’s minor joint pain not full blown.
So, mostly what’s bothering me today is fatigue. To put it simple I feel as you would if you felt run down. I miss waking up and feeling completely refreshed from a nights sleep.
I’m not sure what the rest of the day holds, at the time I’m writing this it’s 14:46 and Lupus is unpredictable so I can’t say it’ll stay the same. I’ll probably take a nap, I say nap but what I mean is I’ll probably fall asleep for hours longer than I planned.
Thanks for reading.
