Edited to add: Did some very gentle hip opening stretching, did get a small amount of relief for a moderate period of time. Also did some stretches for my neck/t-zone that a physical therapist taught me when I was pregnant with Fintan. 
Pretty awful today overall. A lot of myofacial pain, some joint pain. Joint pain on the right side; wrist, hip, ankle. My spine, t-zone included, also bad. Nausea, hot/cold flashes, sweats, sinus congestion, mucousy cough lingers. Nerve/spine pain is bad right this second. My jaw has been very painful, a headache accompanies this of course. There was some major upheavals yesterday, I’m guessing that’s why I feel extra awful today. Stupid stress hormones.

Still managed to care for two kids mostly myself, make breakfast/lunch/dinner, also got a nap thanks to my spouse. Oh and Little Bug (the baby) woke up at 3am and didn’t really go back to sleep. She’s a handful right now. Four months old today, so she is hitting a growth spurt plus sleep regression and teething. Plus my son has been acting out more due to the changes. Still seriously considering getting him assessed. He’s been having bad screaming fits when upset/angry/frustrated. He’s a great big brother, I’m really proud of him.

I have a good friend coming to visit tomorrow. We’ve managed to hang out almost every Sunday for the past month and a bit. Mainly because they come here. So that will be nice. Kidlets will be off visiting with my parents. 

Hopefully I feel less like shit tomorrow.

Pain Level: 9-10

Meds: Tylenol Arthritis x 2 doses(4 pills), Naproxen 500mg x 2, Paroxetine x 2

Main symptoms: deep aching pain in muscles and joints, mild brain fog, hot flashes, mild fever, moderate-severe fatigue

Worked six days this week, have tomorrow off for church(as long as I don’t sleep in), then back to it on Monday. I have no Tylenol 3’s left. R gave me mild chiding for not telling him how the clinic doc pretty much said she wouldn’t refill me again. Must call GP on Monday to get a proper refill. There is a pulse to the pain, which is pretty common for me. Tropical storm so-and-so is sending it’s after effects to the West Coast of Canada and Gods can I feel it. Ugh.
