I’m actually feeling better!

I don’t know whether it’s the additional tablets my G.P. have given me or the fact I am walking with a stick which is taking weight out of my pelvis, but I am actually feeling better.

My pain had been sneaking up. My ten had transformed into a fifteen, which I had to absorb to become my new ten. Lots of pain. mind numbing pain.

Whatever it is, it has worked. It may be my fibro flare is finally receding. I don’t know… and I don’t care. everything seems to be coming together.

Less pain makes a world of difference. Just being able to want to do anything is fabulous.

I sat and done a painting. Not a sketch on my phone, but a real sitting at the table paints and brushes  painting..


As the first one I’ve done in ages, I’m dead chuffed to be honest.

So, having done the gentle work in the garden yesterday, I’m resting up today. Just because I’m feeling better is not the sign to start galavanting around. I need to build up slowly. No point over doing it and ending up worse than I was!

Anyway, having a good day. Thought I’d share rather than moaning all the time.

Hugs all round!


My sister. She’s bloody amazing you know


This is us. Two parts of the three musketeers. (Must get a Piccy of us and motherbeast too..the three indomitable Dorcey birds)

This weekend, my hubby went off on a pre-planned holiday. Just so happened my fibro has been flaring and decided this was a great time to literally lock me down. Couldn’t get milk out of fridge and that kind of thing….

Anyway, within a space of minutes, my sister had decided she was just going to casually jump on a train, travel the length of the country and bloody look after me.

So, there you are,

That awesome woman, who has so much to do, so many people to look after all the time, was able to haul arse up here and help me.

I can’t tell you how much it means to me.

And…..while she was here, she sorted out a shed load of things for me. Prioritising and making lists and how I can look after myself moving forward.

Frankly, she is a resource and a person I could NOT live without.
(Also give a busy person work if you want it done, right?)

This is the most public way of thanking her I can think of.

Kizzywiggle, you seriously are the best. I mean it.

Thank you. Xxx
