Hi everyone, hope you are all as well as possible. I am nursing a miserable cold just now and will be so glad when it's gone. I was,however, very pleased that it was a cold as the beginning of it gave me such enhanced pain it was unreal !! So once I realised I knew it had an end point. But enough of that; I have been back from holiday a few weeks now. I went to Marrakech, the first week in August and was lucky enough to get a heatwave!!!! This has happened now in Egypt, Cyprus and now Morocco. The whole week was 46C to 48C - oh bliss!!!!! It makes no difference to my back pain which is down to an old injury but the fibro virtually disappears. No meds needed, lots of energy and wait for it ...... drum roll..... I slept 7hrs every night!!!!! It made me really giddy!! I know that when I get back it all starts again but for that time I get a wonderful respite from it all. I made some new friends as always, one being a beautiful Cobra although I told it's owner off for having it perform - well you have to try, and sent a would be bag snatcher off with no purse but a lovely bruise to his shin and a smack around the back of his head grr! I brought back lots of good Saffron for the spice cupboard as well as proper sugared almonds and gorgeous dates. Now then, looking through various posts there have been some disturbing things happening so to those of you suffering at the hands of this condition, at the hands of others or just bad luck like falls etc then I send love and healing and hope this phase passes quickly.
