It is getting closer to Christmas and I am trying to keep up the pace of the season, while taking care of myself. It is a real balancing act. I decided not to send out Christmas cards this year, as I have too many other things on my plate right now. My skin is acting up in itchy blistering bumps on the back of my leg and that is a sign that I need to slow down and chill a little. I live alone, and for the most part, don't mind it, but the holidays are a little daunting. Trying to get gifts that will please and that I can afford is time consuming. I picked up a few extra hours of work so that is another adjustment I am making.
The weather is making my fibromyalgia very active, so I have to really pace my activities. I am also on the depression community, and it can be a three ring circus going on in my body! Having a good sense of humor helps. Some days, though, it is hard just forcing myself to get out of bed. Still, I am happy most days and grateful for the abilities that I do have. Hope you all have a very merry Christmas!
