Exhausted and Excited

I'm exhausted from the past week. I've had to be up, showered, dressed and out early every day for the past 6 days between traveling, appointments and plans with friends and family. Today should be less physically demanding, thankfully, but there is still so much to be done.

Despite myself I've been spending a fair amount of time thinking about my new diagnosis. I guess it's only natural but I really don't want to be side tracked right now when there is so much moving stuff to do. I have so many questions that are insisting they hang out in my head until they get addressed but they can't be answered right now. Not because I'm in the middle of a stressful cross-country move but because they are complicated questions and I need both time and assistance in figuring out the answers.

I'm starting to see the end of the tunnel regarding the move. More and more it is feeling real and I'm starting to imagine what it will be like to live in St Louis. I can't wait to find out where we'll live and what our lives will be like. It sort of feels like a fresh start, full of possibilities.


  1. It's only natural to wonder about your illness. I've done the same thing when they've hit me with one I didn't know I had. At least now you can learn about it, because you know what it is.

    A fresh start is so nice! Especially when it involves leaving the DC area! Been there, done that :D Hooray for possibilities!

  2. I'd love a fresh start!!!

    There is a ton of online information about Fibromyalgia...which I am sure you already know. That diagnosis has been tossed at me as well, before the whole Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease theory. I am waiting for repeat lab results I had done last week from the Rheumatologist. I am hoping to get some answers...but I am not holding my breath. So frustrating!
