    No Comfortable Position

    I've been in so much pain that I was unable to sleep, all I could do was toss and turn and groan because there was no spot that felt okay.

    Thanks, Fibromyalgia.

    I can't sleep most nights, to be perfectly honest. I stay sore, and it seems to get worse when I lie down in my bed. Thanks to fibromyalgia, every pressure point on my body aches when I lie on a bed. I toss and turn restlessly for hours because no matter how I lie, some part of...

    Somehow, thankfully, I'm able to sleep.

    I had a hip injection to help relieve pain. I won't have the full pain relief for a few days but I'm so tired from the injection process it's making me sleepy... Have a good nite all!!
