Life at 40% with Alexandria: Change

This past week was pretty good overall for me. It was busy, and unfortunately, I ended up having stomach problems in the middle of the week. However, I’m doing better at the moment. Part of me wonders if I had food poisoning, but for all I know, it was something else. I do have some stomach issues of course. That is quite common with fibromyalgia. Most people who have fibromyalgia also have IBS, but I have never gotten an IBS diagnosis.

Oddly enough, I got a new job offer on the day I had to stay home sick. I plan on starting that new job after my two weeks notice is up. I am hoping this new job will be slightly easier on me physically but also just overall. This is the type of job I have wanted since I began social work in college. I am excited but also nervous for this change.

Pain wise, the main thing I had this past week was my back and lower left hip. My fatigue has been up too. I took a three hour nap the day I was home from work. I do wish I had gotten a longer one, but that’s all I could manage at the time.

Let me know how you’re making it through!
