When I updated my Facebook profile picture, earlier this week, I received a ton of ‘likes’ and quite a few comments on how well (and how young!) I am looking:
Thank you! ☺️
Which is ironic because I’ve been suffering from a flare~up of my chronic conditions and spent most of October in pain. This explains why I haven’t blogged for ages and why this post will be brief.
Having been informed by two doctors that there are no conventional treatments or cures for my ailments, I’ve been following some alternative healing modalities ~ which are beginning to take effect: ice~packs; Epsom salt baths, golden turmeric paste and tart cherry juice for inflammation; a Qi Gong (or Chi Kung) routine which I practice every morning to loosen me up and daily dog walks, which keep both Indie and I mobile. Well she is older than I am, in dog years, and there are days when she clearly feels her age too ~ even though it doesn’t show!
Bless her! ☺️
I am feeling much better than I was and hopefully that will continue to improve. I’d like to be well enough to enjoy my arts and crafts and write more blogposts ~ so I’ll continue to nurture myself (and the pooch) in every way that I can! 😃
