In response to my question about whether trying to push through fatigue and pain with exercise will extend my limits the answer was pretty much no. If the fatigue is due to fibromyalgia, pushing through it will make it worse. If it's due to lupus, pushing through isn't going to help. And with joint pain, pushing through is only going to mean you hurt more. Yay. So my desire to get back into running is one that was met with a certain amount of skepticism. I'm still going to try, but I'm going to ease into it more slowly, listen to my stupid body, etc.
And I didn't get a hoped for promotion at work. I know that's not relevant, but it just adds to the general suckiness of the week. Oh, did I mention we got put on lockdown at work because of a disgruntled ex-employee who made threats? Yeah. I'm going to go hit the ice cream now. I'll be back to my snarky self tomorrow, hopefully.
