Cold Weather Blues

Hello dolls. Today is a high pain level day for, I’m at a level 8. The weather has turned chilly and the chill is hurting my spoonie bits.  I can’t move my neck to well today, my hips are hurting, and all my muscles are sore and tight.

The cold weather always pushes me into a fibro flare but it also aggravates my rheumatoid arthritis.

I was able to get up and shower and do my hair and makeup and do a blog post but then I had to take a rest.

My medication isn’t working today and my pain level is so high that I can’t keep food down so it’s been a rough day. I also have a wicked headache.

I had planned to cook Spanish beef stew and white rice but the pain is so intense that I decided on Paninis.

Turkey, Munster Cheese, Tomato, and Pesto

I think today will be an early bed day, hopefully I will be able to sleep. It’s important to remain positive when you are having an off day.

I’ve been crying on and off all day because of the pain. It can deflate the spirits if you aren’t careful.

The important thing to remember that just because you can’t get you whole to do list done doesn’t mean you’re doing bad… it just mean you did your best.

I’m having a hard time with words today so I’ll leave the post with this

Don’t be afraid to ask for help when  you need it.  Keep your head high.



Love and Spoons babies,

Don’t forget to save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
