So the bad news is that it seems I’ve been misdiagnosed for, oh, conservatively speaking, at least the past year.
The good news is that I went to a specialist and am now getting treated for what I actually have.
The bad news is that I have fibromyalgia, which frankly, SUCKS GIANT DONKEY BALLS.
The good news is that if you’re going to get fibro, now is apparently the time to do so, since there are a lot more treatments, including some new medications that allow you to not spend each and every moment in excruciating pain, which ironically makes this the first time I’ve ever been part of a current, leading-edge trend. THANKS, UNIVERSE. HA, HA, THAT’S A GOOD ONE! (Grrr.)
It’s an awful lot to take in, so any prayers/good thoughts/healing energy/holding in the light/chanting/drumming/nakedness/burning stuff, or any application of your particular method of invoking the presence of The Divine on my behalf would be much appreciated.
