Rough day

I finally made my next CF clinic visit, and yes I know it is long over do. I was supposed to go in February but I never made the appointment. Life got crazy. Last visit I was at 74% so I am curious to see where I’m at right now.

Today was a rough day. Despite my medicines my pain just got the best of me today, and honestly this is the second day this week where I was absolutely exhausted. I have my ups and downs throughout every day. Some days my pain gets to a 10 some days it is as low as a 3. My fatigue works the same way. Today was easily a 9 for pain; fatigue was a tad better – 7ish. Doesn’t really help my mood at all. I have been snapping at people left and right. I’m on edge, and when I’m not I’m depressed.

It is so frustrating to only be comfortable for a short time and then feel like bugs are crawling on my legs or even wore the burning. My husband and daughter see me struggle with this often, and I am ashamed that I cannot hide it very well anymore. But that’s just my own insecurities. I’ll dig myself out of this funk…
