As much as we need the rain right now I'm really not looking forward to the days and weeks of gray and wet ahead of us. Still, maybe when the temps drop back into the normal range I'll be more inspired to sew. Heaven knows I haven't been sew-inclined in what feels like a long time. That may be due, in part, to the new physical malady I'm having to cope with. By itself it's not a big deal - that we know of. It's some kind of rash, mostly on the back of my left hand. The distressing part is that there's a bit of it on my eyelids too. And we have not been able to come up with a definite diagnosis. Don't know what it is, don't know what's causing it, don't know how to make it go away. The patch on my hand has spread and evolved but not really healed per se. I have a follow up appointment with the doctor next Monday.
I confess to being more than a little discouraged by all this. On top of all the other restrictions and limitations imposed by Candidiasis and MCS I've about had it. You know it's serious when even the things you normally enjoy doing are not in the least tempting. The trick is to find something, some way to tie a knot in the end of my rope so I can hang on until things begin to look more promising. The other option is to just succumb to being a vegetable on the couch.
I don't want to be a vegetable. I've got a little tiny knot in my rope at the moment. My challenge for today is to try to make it bigger and stronger. I've gotta find something fun to do, some way to distract myself. Maybe it's time to go get lost in a book. Whatever you do today, please don't let me drag you down!
