Oh, autumn. I have a love/hate relationship with you. It's the season of crisp cool air, beautiful warm colors, cozy clothes & hot steamy drinks.
It's also a season of instability, fatigue & pain. It's a time when the barometric pressure is constantly changing & therefore, so is my body.
It's easy to feel a bit down & frustrated. Especially when you have set backs. It can be difficult to stay positive. Trust me, I know.
However, I'm trying really hard to rewire my body & brain this year. So, I'm going to think about all the things I love about autumn 🍁.
I'm not going to act like things aren't tough, but I'm no longer angry about it. There are some pretty cool things I can now claim:
1. I'm more credible than the weather channel. I can predict a rainy day or cold front long before any technology can. I've won many bets on a seemingly sunny day. 😉
2. My senses are so sensitive I can hear & locate a rogue mosquito at a drop of a hat. I can enjoy the taste of food without having to over season it. I believe I see colors more vividly, and even though my body shifts easily, it also doesn't take much it get things back in order.
3. There have been a lot of healthcare practitioners who find my conditions cool, interesting or crazy. This is awesome because it may spark enough interest for one of them to research it. Hopefully, that means better care in the future.
Whew! It always helps writing the good things down. You think it, write it and read it. And things are always better in 3's...right!?
Anyway, there are a lot of us that struggle at different moments, for different reasons & periods of time. Please know that you're not alone.
Have faith, find the positive & share it with everyone. Sending healing vibes & gentle hugs your way.
Spasming and collapsing
Air that should be clean
Stabbing while I'm
Only trying to breath
It's like a fit of
A hundred storms
Raging against my
Already frazzled nerves
Took out the innocence
Replacing it with doom
Who are you
Stirring up strife
Trying to make me feel foolish
Our greatest power
Our greatest threat
Strength in numbers
Not heeding regret
The eyes of the children are upon us
Seeing through us like
An unstained windowpane
Torn by travail
Don't forget who you are
Leaving death to remind you
Anyone else affected by barometric pressure changes? 😒#thestruggleisreal When I can't get out for my morning sunlight, I do the next best thing, use a light box. Did you know bright light therapy (or phototherapy) can help with seasonal affect disorder (SAD), depression, sleep disorders, and more? 😱🙌🏻 It's true! #googleit Pair it with your essential oils for a dynamic duo, especially if the weather changes bring on increased pain or head tension. How do you support yourself during challenging days? Swipe to see my routine. 👈🏻👈🏻👈🏻 I snagged my light box from @amazon.
•"You're the shadow lurking in me
and the lunatic light waiting in that shadow.
Ghostwriter of my half-life, intention's ambush
I can't prepare for, ruthless whammy
you have me ogling a blinding sun,
my right eye naked even with both lids closed—
glowering sun, unerring navigator
around this darkened room, you're my laser probe,
I'm your unwilling wavelength,
I can never transcend your modus operandi,
I've given up trying to outsmart you,
and the new thinking says I didn't invent you—
whatever you were to me I've outgrown,
I don't need you, but you're tenacity embodied,
tightening my skull, my temple, like plastic wrap."•-Gail Mazur • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
