Hello PainPals – Monday Magic is back! The last week has flown by in a swirl of one drama after another….but that is the norm in this house!! Of course any excitement and stress always causes a flare of symptoms for me and this week has been no exception resulting in one long POTSie episode. Did you see my poem from yesterday?
Pin for later
Two faints and head cracks in the space of 48 hours left me talking “rubbish” yesterday according to the lovely girl. Or more rubbish than normal – mind you, she is pretty good at that herself, so a bit of a chip off the old block as they say.
So apologies if what I described as a poem was just some ramblings, but what is a spot of concussion between friends? After the first fall, when I was home alone except for the dog, I took a photo from the ground and sent it to the younger two child adults (didn’t post it to SM until I was back on the sofa with a decent amount of analgesia circulating my blood stream…..hmm, that could be the reason that I did post such a flattering pic of myself!) Now that did get me in trouble with hubby as I didn’t call him, but I knew he was only dropping my Mum and one of his doggy charges home so I figured there was no point. I was already on the floor, wasn’t moving so I couldn’t do myself any more damage – that is sensible, right?! Anyway, what did impress me was that both kids phoned hubby and both were indignant that he had left me alone….yes, the politics student actually tried to call his father. When I asked the IT start up exec (new name for the Student engineer – Its U Exec for short) if he would have called dad, the response was “no…..if you could manage a selfie, you could manage to ring him yourself!” Oh well, two out of three isn’t bad.
I’m fine today, if I ignore the egg on the back of my head and a few misplaced joints – you have to look on the bright side, so the best thing to do seemed to be to find you some interesting and inspiring blog posts. There are two serious posts that I will give you trigger warnings for – one discusses rape, the other suicide – but they really are worth a read if you are able. Enjoy a wander through the Vancouver Rain, or some beautiful wedding photographs with an extra special message from the photographer; there are some book recommendations and a blog birthday celebration. Finally I have added a treat from a fellow spoonie who has an Instagram account full of beautiful foodie pictures and recipes.
So sit down with a glass of something delicious and enjoy!
