Not Really Feeling it…

Yesterday I went to the Dr. by myself for the first time in 3 years.  My Dr said, Im currently having an exacerbation, it is my fall visit.  I usually get one in Spring, another in Autumn.  She asked if I wanted to have IVSM or Oral steroids.  I opted for oral steroids this time.  I know what a difficult time she had in May for me to get treatment at home, and I know how much easier it is to get the pills.  It is a MUCH lighter treatment, here’s a comparison – if my dr. were to give me the amount of pills to equal IVSM it would be 125 pills over a 5 day period.  I’ll be having 43 over 10 days or so.  I pray it will give me some relief.  I have so much spasticity, my body feels like hmmm…

Real Talk
I’m not especially enjoying my current 31 day challenge.  I find it very difficult to find the motivation to share these things that I love. It doesn’t seem, fair to them.  Last year, I really enjoyed the challenge.  I met some wonderful new people. I learned about me. It was lovely.  This year… it feels commercialized. I’m Determined to finish, I think I’ll just adjust the posts.

NaNoWriMo
Next month is NaNoWriMo.  I used to love to go to Second Life and join up with the virtual community of authors there.  I went to their seminars, heard  authors speak, and read their books.  I had a little writing studio for the month.  It was as fun as anything virtual can be.  My SL days are behind me, but I’m considering NaNo this year. I am an awful fiction writer, but I have thousands of words to organize for a non fiction book.  I wonder if that is something I can do next month.

Day 16 – God Will Take Care of You

God Will Take Care of You

Enjoy this family letting you know how God plans to treat you! It always brings a smile to my face! I remember the first time I heard this song. This was the video one of my friends shared with me. It was every single thing I needed to hear in that moment. It has continued to be a soft place for my life to land. Some days are overwhelming with all there is to worry about. This song encourages me to look beyond that. I gave it a permanent home on my playlist. I never tire of allowing this song to wrap me in its comforting words. I hope you will allow it to do the same for you.
