Nerves and butterflies

Bit of this

The sunshine temps me into the garden. The nasturtium patch has become the red light district. There are lady butterflies touting for trade everywhere.

I hope there are no cabbages growers around about.

It's amazing how something so tiny and insubstantial can reek such havoc. A bit like all those willful neurons firing and causing me no end of bother.

Bit of that

Nerves and butterflies are fine - they're a physical sign that you're mentally ready and eager. You have to get the butterflies to fly in formation, that's the trick. ~Steve Bull

Just need to get me butterflies into formation then.

Nedd, I love your blogs. I will use the "just got to get me butterflies in formation" line myself - that was me yesterday, aching all over and soup for a brain!


Thanks for your encouragement. I have only recently discovered that my slushy brain might be due to pain and that I may not be loosing my marbles. Hope you had a better day today. And may your butterflies fly in formation tomorrow.


No such luck, worse if anything, I will have to get them into shape!

yes, I've read that chronic pain can have a negative impact on the grey matter. Even more reason to get back on top of things then.


May tomorrow bring a bit of respite. Just when you have had enough the screws sometimes tighten up. I usually put on some rock and role and eat chocolate. The music sometimes infuses me with a bit of energy. Failing that I slap the tens machine on a sensitive area and wack it up to max. Hey presto that is so uncomfortable my brain focuses on that and I get a mad sort of relieve that way.

Re grey matter. You probably know this already, this link is about fibro fog. I reckon it is what I get although I don't have fibromyalgia.
