Summer Fibro Update

September is Pain Awareness Month

Our summer days are numbered. Fall is fast approaching, but for now here in Texas is still feels like summer. I just cannot believe how quickly it seems like the summer went by. Another COVID summer of doing little to nothing. We did venture out for a short trip last month. The resort we stayed at was so isolated and there were so few people there, it was like having the place to ourselves. #heaven

“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall…” ~ Oscar Wilde

Honestly the summer seems like a blur to me. I have been following a new (stricter) dietary regimen to try to resolve some health issues. Along with the old health issues and the on-going pain of living with fibromyalgia and hip/back/neck pain.

It’s not sweater weather yet, here in Texas.

While the calendar may say September and Starbucks (and everyone else) may have rolled out the pumpkin spice #PSL everything, here in Texas it still feels like summer.

Get outside and feel the sunshine on your face!

Summer is here and after a year+ of COVID lockdowns, restrictions, grocery shortages, and masks, the world is ready to get out. Out to eat. Out to the movies. Out in the sun. Out to travel or see friends. Or just to get on with their lives. I, myself, have been ready for some time now to travel or just get back to normalcy, but these words are often easier said than done for a variety of reasons.

Every day is a fresh start…

Obviously this post is a little late, as we are now in the 3rd month of 2021! I have started so many posts the last few months, only to get pulled away into something else. I am juggling some extra duties at work these days, as well as helping care for my mom after moving her across the country to be near me. So writing, painting, and other hobbies that give my life a sense of normalcy have taken a back seat.

And then 2021 has been a bit of a kick in the teeth for those of us living in Texas. Plus getting the second shot of my COVID-19 vaccine has caused a fibro-flare and perpetual exhaustion.

Even changing out my letter board has gone from weekly to monthly, or whenever I can find a few spare minutes. But here’s one from the New Year I am finally getting around to sharing.

“Every day is a fresh start…every sunrise is a new adventure.”
