Then the days of horrific pain, migraines and in bed medicating . Maybe ER. Then the days u get 1-3 hours if lucky to do things.

Shower, laundry maybe lite cleaning. And tired again. So you lay down body tired but you are alert. That's when the dreaming happens. How it used to be. What was lost. Will I ever get it back? Will I ever be the same. No one gets it. Tired of explaining. Just want to blink and things go back to how it used to be.
