Costochondritis plagues me now!

Oh boy another severe case of Costochondritis. It is about to kill me! I can’t sleep because it hurts in my rib cage so badly. It is difficult picking up my little one to change her diaper. I am taking ibuprofen but it just isn’t doing the trick! I think I might go see my GP for this and see if there is something else she can give me.

Some of you are probably wondering what the hell Costochondritis is?

Well it is inflammation in the chest area and rib area. It isn’t life threatening but it sure hurts like hell! It can last for months for some people and others only weeks or just a few days even. It has been two days so far for me and it seems to be getting worse.

I am not surprised it is getting worse because I have to pick my little one up and that just aggravates the problem even more.

Holy mother of God it hurts to breathe!!!!


I am plagued by things
Things you just can’t see
The voices in my head
They are out to get me
The pain that I feel
Every day of my life
How hard it is to be a loving mother,
And a loving wife
I have Fibromyalgia and it perplexes me
You think I’m not sick
That is because you just can’t see
Trust me, I am ill
And I don’t want to be
