I love the scorching weather that we are having this week. I’m definitely a summer person; I need the sun and the warmth on my skin and you certainly won’t here me complain about the heat. The only downfall is with a sudden change in temperature (cold or hot) is that it tends to send the fibromyalgia into overdrive and pain levels increase dramatically.
After a night of moving between the bed and the sofa; not being able to lie, sit, stand without pain and even the touch of my clothes against my skin making it feel as though it was on fire, I’m drained and exhausted today.
So a day of self care it is.
There’s still work to be done but with the threat of thunderstorms hitting the rest of the week, I’m not going to miss the opportunity to be outside in the sun and warmth. Magazines are out (in the name of research of course) and my August planner will be scheduled while soaking up the sun with copious amounts of iced water, fruit tea and pain meds.
Enjoy the sun – Happy Wednesday!
