Summer heat? What is this torture?

In the UK we are currently in the middle of a surprisingly hot summer. I know i just said UK and hot in the same sentence. Usually by this time of the year we barely reach short wearing weather and we always need a umbrella handy for when the heavens open which we have all grown to expect.


Unfortunately, i have found that suffering with Fibromyalgia can cause heat sensitivity and on the hottest day of the year so far I am suffering. It wasn’t until a few days ago that i really learnt the meaning of a “flare-up” the hard way. After 3 weeks of clearly doing too much for my body to handle I have well and truly hit a wall and whilst my energy levels have hit a low point my pain levels have rocketed. For the last 3 days from the moment I get out of bed I am faced with pain all over my body that does not subside until I fall asleep and I have not had a seemly good nights rest in I don’t know how long. Β I am embarrassed at how pathetic i look trying to get up the stairs, using what little strength I have to pull myself up. My walking stick has now become my best friend and is by my side more often than not.

    Thank you for the “follow” that led me to your blog! I tend to be very sensitive to the heat too, so I can understand how you feel. Being similar in age, and suffering similar afflictions, I can relate with almost everything you write about. Thank you for writing it. It is nice to have friends who understand the struggle! πŸ™‚ Take care of yourself! **Gentle hugs**! ❀

    1. Thank you for commenting and reading my post. It is nice to hear that someone else can relate to what I am talking about that is a similar age. I find that a lot of people that have similar things tend to be older. Yes it is nice to have friends that understand without having to explain πŸ™‚ I am always here for a chat or a rant if you need it. Take care 😊 x
