It was flare up time again yesterday. I managed to teach my morning class thanks to Jesus who gave me strength. When flare ups of chronic illness begin, one question on my mind is always how long for this one.
How does a flare up feel? You know the muscle aches when you have the flu? It is kind of like that ALL OVER and with pain in every joint. Only instead of a fever, my temperature is 96 to 97 degrees. And then there is the kind of fatigue that I can barely move.
What did I do? I came home after teaching, ate a little food, took some Aleve, and slept as in a three hour power nap.
What triggered it? I don’t know. They just come when they come.
Fortunately today is a teacher planning day, so I do not need to go to the school. I can plan and work from home. Hopefully this flare up will be short lived and I won’t have a Chronic Christmas. 🙂
I still need a haircut, but the one thing that never hurts is my hair. lol
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
