I am anticipating the holiday season. While that doesn’t officially begin until December some social events start in November. As well as buying gifts for me begins in November. I anticipate Christmas about the time there is snow on the ground, which there is. As of yesterday. The Holiday season can be a bit stressful so there are things to consider. (see Avoiding stress during the holidays with fibromyalgia) but it is one of my favourite times of year, despite it falling in my least favourite season.
I recently cleaned out my closet to give clothes to charity. Basically a lot of the work clothes that are too big for me now and I simply do not wear. Hoping that I do not gain that weight back considering it was lost due to my illness. Either way, seemed no point to hold onto it. And I like doing that at least once a year. Going through things, weeding them out and decluttering a bit. Makes me feel good that I am not holding onto things I do not need and taking up space for the sake of taking up space. Next: The office. I already went through my filing and got rid of a lot of things I do not need to store. But I need to tidy it up and declutter my entire office area.
I am discovering low pain days and coping with that. It is new to me and great to experience more low pain days than high pain days. Making it easier to cope and function. The Oska Pulse and the Botox are managing my pain most days and that is something that was Needed. I don’t know how I lived before that, if you called that living. So I am discovering a better quality of life. But still very moderate and paced. There still be pain in this brain and body and I have to be careful about it.
I am cherishing every migraine free day I get. It is such a welcome relief to just Have a migraine free day. Something I never had previously. Or not for over a decade. To have that is something I value immensely. And hope to make more frequent.
