My holiday spoons are fickle. #MySpoons
Yesterday - the day after I ran out of my pain meds - I pulled a muscle behind my boob.

Thank goodness #spoonie Twitter was here to rescue me.
But now I get to spend Christmas

- in more pain than usual
- with more #painsomnia
- and less medication & other methods of easing the pain

My sister brought me coffee with the breakfast she made me.

YAY!!!!
[The GIF of a cup of coffee whose bubbles look like it’s smiling agrees with me!]
A protein-heavy breakfast already changes my whole day for the better.

I can no longer do this for myself until hours after I’m up, if at all. (Morning stiffness + stairs.)

A3. From home I observed #ACR18 featuring patient interviews like the one with @DawnMGibson.

It gave me so much hope & vidation about #painsomnia. #CreakyChats
A3. Iearned about patient posters & through community representatives who attended, that researchers and doctors were observing and listening. #CreakyChats
A3. That meant so much to me. I'm still thinking about it and browsing and observing material from the #LupusChat attendees, @CreakyJoints and @DawnMGibson.

What a well timed moment to be be newly diagnosed with Arthritis & Fibro.

A4. Yes because I trust your word @DawnMGibson.

I am newly diagnosed with Arthritis in my right hip. I've been complaining about my hip and walking with a cane for years. #SpoonieChat
A4. And I learned so much for #ACR18 and @CreakyJoints and @DawnMGibson's #Painsomnia interview.

#SpoonieChat
A4. It gave me lots of opportunities to learn about #fibro (which is often treated by Rhematologists.)

And I'd never heard of patient posters. There was so much sharing. I was so imoressed with the patient involvement at #ACR18.

😆🤣😂I died when @DawnMGibson said that some sleep hygiene tips are muggle advice! #ACR18 #Painsomnia
"Magical beings such as myself don't always do well with that." #ACR18 #SpoonieChat #Facts
I much prefer the idea of a sleep PLAN. You don't hear people talking about our #painsomnia struggle outside of giving the standard advice that doesn't work for is. #ACR18

Tonight #myspoons are perplexed, as they often are. Behind, feeling broken & facing the ever-present question: should I try or rest?
It's the central debate of the #spoonielife. We need sleep but #painsomnia. Need rest but life needs doing.
Do we try to sleep, quite possibly spending our scarce time budget in futility? Or are tasks pressing enough to do at least than our best?
