Little miss make up
Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog.
Today I'm just giving ye a EDS update of how I am.
I am having a flare today because I exhausted myself all week doing to much.
I am so weak and tired today. I have aches and pains everywhere and the my pain levels are higher than a ok day. My heads pounding from tiredness and I slept until three today every time I tired to get up my eyes would roll back my head and I couldn't sit up.
I do suffer from chronic fatigue and I will do a detailed blog post on that later on.
I also have a heart condition where my heart beat is too fast and today it's worse than usual. Which isn't good because from this I can get blackouts and bad dizzy spells. I will also do a detailed blog on this condition.
With few days I have been struggling with my knees. Due to my hyper mobile joints my knees bend back further than they are suppose to. They seem to be worse lately and it's agony to stand or walk. So I have been trying to keep them slightly bent outwards when standing or walking. This is a lot easier said than done mind you.
All my muscles are very weak and sore today which makes it harder to do things. Walking to the kitchen can really make me weaker and dizzy . If I go to the kitchen I must sit down and rest for five mins before even trying to do anything.
My wonderful mother is here and is amazing at looking after me when I am bad. I do try to do things myself even though I shouldn't because I could pass out. Mam never complains and is always so happy to look after me. I honestly feel so blessed to have her even though I feel bad when people help me, as I always try to be as independent as possible.
This flare could last a few hours to days. I never know how long they will last, which makes it hard to make plans or do things.
Thanks for reading my update.
I include my conditions as part of my blog simply because they are part of my life and even though they are days where I am bad and can't do things , I want to show people that u can't give up when things are bad. In my eyes we all have bad days and from that we appreciate the good days even more.
Thanks again for reading.
Hope my EDS journey will help raise awareness of this condition.
lots of love,
