What a month! My world has been filled with a lot of things to do and resting to recover from doing the things. There’s also been a lot of change to process and that can be all consuming. I wasn’t planning a hiatus from blogging, it just sort of happened.
I have moved house. This stop is temporary on my way to my new, cripple friendly home. I was able to do so much more packing and actual moving of things than I was able to on previous moves since I’ve been living with CRPS. This is a huge achievement for me.
The pain has been flaring up in proportion to the extra activity I have indulged in, as expected, however I am managing it and not letting it stress me out, which is really about all I can ask from myself during a period of unsettlement. I have been able to refrain from going into an incapacitating flare, so I’m pretty happy with that!
I have been able to maintain going for a daily walk with the dogs, which has helped me to feel like I am getting some sort of fitness back. The fat pad issue really set me back in terms of exercise and I am so very glad that it has healed and isn’t bothering me anymore.
Life will start to calm down this week. I have a couple of months until my new house is ready to move into. I’m pretty sure that by the time I unpack all of my boxes I will have completely forgotten what I own. Yay for surprises!
Other than managing my pain, my days and my dogs, I don’t have any plans for the immediate future. I’ve had exactly zero motivation to write anything at all these past few weeks. I am hoping that now that I am here for a while, I’ll have the brain space to communicate and create again.
I feel kind of strange and blank right now. That’s alright. It’s easier to build something new from a blank slate, and I would very much like to build something new.
I’ll break out of this cocoon soon enough.
Love & Growing Wings,
