Hey doll. Hope your day was smooth, pain free (errr… as close to pain free as any spoonie can have) and that you had plenty of spoons to make it through the day.
I have been taking a new dose of my depression medication and it seems to be working for me . I have had the energy ( both physically and mentally) to wear a full beat face 4 out of 7 days the past few weeks. (excluding the days at the first of the month when I was still off m muscle relaxers)
So I thought it was damn time that I share a face of the day with you. Remember even when you are having a bad spoonie day, just the littlest of things like a bit of blush, a smear of lip gloss and mascara could help keep you feeling less depressed , feeling human on the days were , as a spoonie we feel left out or just unaccomplished.
Remember it’s the small things that can make a big difference in how we feel on low days. Even just a spritz of our favorite scent can help.
Why yes… that is a face demon… thanks for pointing that out. (😣) ….Wink wink nudge nudge…..
