Lately, it’s taking all I can to average one post a week at Chronic Connection. I don’t know how my fellow bloggers muster up the energy and ability to post daily (or almost). I’m even having trouble keeping up with reading them all! Lol! My apologies for being so inactive lately!
This summer has wiped me right out, and the transition back to school has been more difficult on my body than I have been willing to give it credit for.
One week into the new school year, and both my children have been sick since Thursday evening. It’s official, school has started! They seem to be feeling quite a bit better now though. Maybe the herbal tea I forced on them yesterday helped ;). With any luck, they will both be able to take part in their swimming lessons tomorrow! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to have a good reason to leave the house tomorrow…lol! I think I’m more excited than the kids.
This past week has been so rough, that the only time I have left the house, was to drive to and from school. I am extremely grateful that the nerve pain that has had me on edge all day seems to have simmered down, FINALLY. Just in time for dinner and to get into a nice hot shower. I tried absolutely everything I could think of today to get relief from the intense pain, which oddly was only running through the right side of my body (mostly my lower arm and from hip to knee), with no success. My system wasn’t able to tolerate the medication I was prescribed ions ago for nerve pain, and unfortunately it doesn’t work as a short term treatment, or I would have been more than willing to endure the side effects today.
My plan for the rest of this evening is to climb back into bed, snuggle up with my hubby, and enjoy some quiet time together.
I hope that you are all doing well tonight, and that you are having a “good” day!
