I can’t believe how long it has been since my last post. There’s been so much going on. Things I wanted to talk about; good things. And then there was the body that simply slowed down on me. Said stop. And gave in to the chronic pain condition that is also my life.
I am not my my illness. I try not to give it too much attention. I try not to feed it. But lately it has been a very big part of my life. As it has on and off for the past ten years, I might add. So no need to be alarmed.
Sometimes I have trouble sleeping. Lately it has been like every single cell in my body squirms and wiggles like only tiny movement can keep the pain from taking over. I try to focus on something else on my sleepless nights.
Sometimes I can’t.
But sometimes, like this beautiful night a few days after New Year’s I climb down the stairs and sit on the bench at the kitchen table. I read. I drink soothing teas and listen to the muffled sounds of my tribe sleeping above me.
That night I loved Kinfolk for taking my minds of things. and for the beautiful imagery and amazing stories.
