A day in the life of a single parent. - Guest column by Pooja Priyamvada, Fibromyalgia survivor
Our guest columnist this week is Pooja Priyamvada, a columnist who writes regularly about issues related to mental health. Pooja has fibromyalgia, a condition characterised by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Women are more affected and there is no cure.
Some days begin like this, thankfully some to begin with, over the years these become many. You wake up as if in someone else's virtual reality. Like someone, somewhere, in this case my own nervous system is flicking switches I can't control and so I pour salt into my morning tea (which I don't mind), some milk in the red sauce of the pasta I am making for my daughter's lunch (I hope it make the sauce creamy, not sour), sugar into the chutney in the blender which was supposed to be spicy, and then I put the mixer into the fridge. Well almost.
