The start of a new week and I wake up to yet another terrorist attack in London – following a dreadful week for our capital with the fire in Grenfell tower, west London. My thoughts go out to all involved.
Duncan has been away this week with 60 year 6 children, aged 10 & 11, on the annual French trip to Paris. I gather it was very hot and very busy. This has meant that the adult kids have had to be my carers – not sure who it is worse for. As anyone suffering with dysautonomia – malfunctioning of the autonomic nervous system – knows, this heat plays havoc with us. My breathing has been worse and the pooling of blood has turned my hands and feet to a delightful shade of blue/red every day. So yours truly managed a truly spectacular faint in the shower cubicle, from which I had to extracted by the student engineer and lovely girl. Not really what any mum wants her 21 year old son to have to do!! The bruises are stunning – Ehlers Danlos skin combined with steroids gives great results for all injuries!
Today is my birthday…we won’t count the years….and I can’t quite believe that another year has passed. I would write more but I am being called to get ready – my lovely parents are taking Duncan and me out for lunch. So in my usual Monday fashion, I invite you to make a cuppa, kick off your shoes, sit back and enjoy some more inspiring blog posts from my friends over at Chronic Illness Bloggers!
