It is very frustrating to be on such an up swing and feel like you are in some sort of "recovery" mode and gained some control only to be reminded that your chronic pain is not going to just go away. I have been so lucky over the past month or so to be able to get out into the world and reclaim some of my life but I have found out over the last week that "recovery" makes the rough days even harder to cope with. Time to find a new balance. Time to remind myself that it is OK if I have to take some time out. I am not lazy, I am just not well. I am a good wife, mother, and friend. They all understand that I'm doing my best. With any luck this latest flare will blow through with whatever weather shenanigans are going on and I'll be back to getting on with life in the next day or so. I am a rock star, dammit.
