I’ve been praying that the weather would warm back up soon, and the last few days have been gloriously sunny and pretty. They’ve reached the low 50*s and been comfortable, which has been better on my poor joints and bones. Stress always pushes that back a bit and of course makes my flare-ups worse, but with warmer weather I can sit in the sun and feel a lovely natural warmth loosen the pain a little bit.
Tonight or tomorrow, we’re supposed to get some much-needed rain. Connecticut has been red-flagged for being severely high risk for brush fires and worse since it’s so dry and we’re in a rain deficit, partly because of the mild winter. But I’ll be honest… I’m dreading it.
I’m dreading the migraine and the body pain, especially since I’m coming out of a moderate flare-up already. I’ll be sure to take my Vitamin B-Complex and stay hydrated, and of course “get enough sleep” is always on my calendar. But I know what’s coming if the weather men are right.
What am I saying? How often are the weather men really right? My body is right more often than they are.
My real saving grace is yoga. Ease the back, the hips, the shoulders… redirect the stress and nervous energy. Bring oxygen to the muscles. ::sigh:: Pretend that it worked better than it did. Tolerate it because I have to and there’s no alternative. Then raid the girls’ Easter baskets.
No, not that part. I have my own chocolate. My favorite Easter candy is the Cadbury Mini Egg. I love those little bits of sweet-smelling crusty sugar coating smooth chocolate. I love the purple ones. Chocolate makes me happy and there’s a scientific reason!!!! yes! a legitimate reason! to eat chocolate! I swear! I don’t have the research handy at the moment, but that would be a great post.
