Fibro Flare: Day 3

Dear John,
 
Still home, still flaring. Jen came by tonight to pick up some mail. She's the first actual, living person I've seen since Saturday afternoon. It was nice to have real human contact.
 
Last night I took 50 mg of Benadryl and two Tylenol #3 at bedtime, and was still wide awake at 5 AM. Between pain, itching, dizziness, nausea, and twitching, there was no sleep until then. So I missed another day of work, which I mind more than all the symptoms put together. This is the first flare I've had to miss work for, but it's also the first that I've had the constant, intense itching. It's not fun. But I did get Elyssa's birthday socks finished. The basement is drying out. I even managed a load of laundry. That was my big day.
 
It's late and I'm tired, so I'm not going to talk long. I have hopes of actually sleeping tonight. I'm itching a bit less and hurting a bit more. But it's easier to sleep through pain than itching. The poor animals are worn out after the last couple of nights. I need to sleep so we can all get some rest!
 
Miss you so much,
Joan.
