Symptoms of Fibromyalgia


Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Rereading about the symptoms of Fibromyalgia reminded me that some of my most recent pain and exhaustion could be related to the Fibromyalgia. It is really amazing how many crazy symptoms that fibromyalgia has. It is hard at times to isolate the symptoms from more serious disorders/diseases. It is possible this last hospital stay could have been partly due to fibromyalgia flareups. I hate it when I go through a long hospital stay and then find out that it could have been simply the fibromyalgia for which there is no cure and never know  when or for how long it will flare up.

Sneaky – Friday Fictioneers Photo Prompt for 8/14/15

Sneaky

By Teresa Smeigh August 14, 2015

Jag sneaked carefully through the thicket and into the open field next door. He quickly ran across the field where a small river ran beside a road.

He has wanted to explore this area since the bomb, but his Dad always said, “No, it is too dangerous for you to wander around in that area. The building may not be safe.”

Jag ran through the river and a small patch of woods to the main road. Wow the McDonald’s is almost gone. Just one side, the drive-through, was left covered in flying insects.

Wait til his brother sees this!

This is Friday Fictioneers Photo Prompt for 8/14/15. 100 word story.

One-Liner Wednesday – (5/29/19) – violent storm


One-Liner Wednesday – (5/29/19) – a violent storm

*********************

Dark angry skies, the heavy wind blowing against the windows, heavy rain, lightning lighting up the skies and the thunder crashing loud right beside my head as I sit by large windows. 

**********************

Rules from Linda G Hill:

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word Speak


100 Word Challenge: This week’s word is Speak

Last week the word was boxes and just this week I find myself putting another small appliance box away just in case. My medical supplies take up a lot of room because as I use them more come in to replace them. I live in a small apartment and as I speak about the apartment size people can’t visualize it until they see it.

It is more than enough room for me except for the storage of all my medical supplies which are constantly growing. I now have an empty box for my nebulizer. I just can’t throw it away.

*****100 words*****

Tara’s Rules

1) I provide a one-word prompt.
2) Write anything you want using that prompt, either as inspiration or as part of your 100 Words. (That means you don’t have to actually use the prompt word, it can be implied.)
3) Your story has to be EXACTLY 100 words (because someone will ask, hyphenated words count as a single word.) This is the one rule I will be a stickler about.
4) Submit your story here as a comment, as a Facebook status, or as a blog post. (Add the specific FB status or post’s URL to the Mr. Linky list just under the prompt.)
5) If you write a blog post, please link back to this post. It makes it easier for me and the other Wordsters to find you.
6) You have one week to write your story and link up (The link stays open, so you can really submit stories whenever… this is the one rule I don’t really enforce.)

Did You See That?

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Dangling from a tree on a tropical island was certainly not his idea. Don and George had talked him into being the watch guy for them and to keep a lookout while they searched for the treasure they had buried out in the water under a rock. He had a few signals he had learned to let them know if anyone was around.

John was hidden in the tree and the guys were just scuba diving out front. Someone came down the path and briefly stopped. John signaled don’t come out. Thankfully the guy moved on. No intervention was needed.

Haunted Wordsmith Daily Prompt (Non-Fiction) – May 29, 2019


Haunted Wordsmith Daily Prompt (Non-Fiction) – May 29, 2019

Today’s prompt: Share something about the city you currently live in.

THE HAUNTED WORDSMITH

********************

Williamstown, NJ

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

I live in Williamstown, NJ. According to Google, Williamstown was named after King William IV who was the monarch at the time of discovery, earlier the town was known as Port Harwood. At one stage Williamstown looked like being the site of what would become Melbourne but the area didn’t have enough fresh water to sustain a much larger town.

Williamstown is a suburb of Philadelphia with a population of 15,191. Williamstown is in Gloucester County. Living in Williamstown offers residents a suburban feel and most residents own their homes. Many families and young professionals live in Williamstown and residents tend to lean conservative.

I have lived in Williamstown twice in my life. 20 years ago I lived in a duplex which is located across the street from where I live now in a senior highrise. I am on the 6th floor and I can look out my window during the window and see my old place. On July 4th I can see about 8 different fireworks shows at once and the sound comes from the one right near our building. Quite a show.

Today’s prompt: hummingbird, pen, amulet

**************************

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Amelia sat at her desk and studied the amulet. It had a picture of a hummingbird on it. It brought back memories. She picked up her pen and began to write about her memories of the time Tom gave her the amulet.
