Surviving Allergy Season

Omg. I’ve been dying this allergy season. If I’m outside for more than 5 minutes, my head starts thumping. I’m so desperate that I considered wearing a mask, but my glasses make over the ear masks difficult to wear. Exploring Amazon.Com I found an alternative! They go IN your nostrils. So far it’s comfortable but we’ll see how it works when I March for Science tomorrow.

Inspiration through Music

I’m seeing lots of posts of Lymies and Spoonies struggling. I too am in a lot of pain and am struggling with both addressing the pain and expressing it. A friend posted a status yesterday and I could tell she was getting to the end of her rope. For me, when I get to those moments of extreme trial and tribulation, I use little “tricks” to help me make it through… one more day, one more minute, one more breath. One of my favorite “tricks” is to sing this song to myself.

“We are going, heaven knows where we are going,
We’ll know we’re there.
We will get there, heaven knows how we will get there,
We know we will.

It will be hard we know
And the road will be muddy and rough,
But we’ll get there, heaven knows how we will get there,
We know we will.

We are going, heaven knows where we are going,
We’ll know we’re there.”

We’re All Winging It

My realization that if the Dalai Lama can wing it, so can I… and so can you.

 

We are all winging it.

We are all winging it.

Pushing Through

When we’re not feeling well, it’s so important that we don’t get stuck. They say that movement can help dissipate the pain. Today I found the strength to push through. I hope that this inspires you to do the same.
