Hi there – it’s me again – remember me? I know I have been away from here for awhile. There are lots of reasons for that, but the main one has been an ongoing flare due to my rheumatoid arthritis. This past winter and the early spring have not been great. Fortunately for me there is now warm sunshine, low humidity and high barometric pressure. I am so ever grateful for the reprise and that now I can get back to those things that really give me life.
Like sitting on my deck in the afternoon sun enjoying a cup of tea and getting some writing done. It is a wonderful feeling and I’d like it to stick around a bit. I feel like my spoons are getting filled up again. Here’s a good link that explains the spoon theory. I feel like I have some energy to get some personal and work tasks done and done well. It gets hard having to explain to those who don’t have a chronic illness what is like to live with one all day, everyday. There is no such thing as a break from this – there are only good days (that are low pain) and bad days (which are high pain). Today and the last few days have been good days.
Here I am back at least for now and if I disappear from here for a bit, you will know why. I am gong to enjoy these days and hope that with good pain management there will be more to come. Now I have a garden and yard waiting for some attention and they are going to get it!
