Taking The Rough with The Smooth

I know, I know, most people reading this will have cleared Siege of Orgrimmar Flex ages ago, but to say the guild I am in started raiding MoP content a month and a half ago, I think we have the right to be proud that last night we cleared part 3 in one evening on our first night there.

That’s Raiders-Inc posing proudly infront of one dead dinosaur!  It was really good, we all worked hard, and whilst mistakes were made occasionally we bested the place.  Just a shame I didn’t get any loot, even using extra loot rolls (damn you RNG!!!).

So that’s the smooth, so on to the rough.  It’s not game related.  In May last year I started getting some weird pains in my back and shoulders, it felt like I was burning or being stabbed with tiny little needles, to the point where even wearing clothes caused major pain.  Yet there wasn’t a mark on me.   I was also having issues with being unable to concentrate, feeling like my brain was full of cotton wool and having sleeping problems.   I went to the doctor, who referred me to a Rheumatology consultant at the local hospital, and after a few appointments this morning I have been officially diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.  Not the best news in the world, but at least I’m not going crazy.  It may cause me trouble in the future, but then who knows what the future would bring anyway?  So I have been put on some medication called Pregabalin which will hopefully relieve the chronic pain in my back and shoulders.  It’s not as bad as it was for a while last year, but it’s THERE, so if something can help me then I’ll be happy.

ANyway, it’s onwards and upwards for me, I’m not letting this slow me down!
