HI everyone !
I am very excited about being able to not have to wear my thick socks and Ugg boots !!
Yesterday I was able to wear my pink pair of trainers, though I had to wear thick ankle socks so my 'look' was a bit 80s with my knee length denim skirt! I could have been an extra on the Grease film set ! haha
AND extra bonus - my thinsulate gloves were in my handbag ! I could not risk leaving them at home ! And actually being able to wear a skirt was a bonus, as I live in fleecy track suit bottoms for most of the year !
The calcium lumps on both of my knees are not used to this light exposure, hopefully the exposure to the elements will help the healing process so that the lumps push off !!
Unfortunately the last calcium lumps on my knees, which did eventually heal after a year or so, have left quite big holes / scars, and are in different locations to the current active ones.
Andso, I do not really like flashing my knees out and about for public viewing ! I am sure that nobody would notice, but I am aware of the presence of one of the signs of latent stage diffuse systemic sclerosis !
I remind myself of Dr Seuss' quote 'those that mind dont matter, and those that matter dont mind'. So thats good enough for me !
I am not sure how long the flip flops will be on for..... what started out as a blue tinge has now gone a bit bluer and I am starting to lose the sensation in my toes, so I think the Uggs will have to make a return ! boo hoo, however, my ankles appreciate the extra support !!
my eskimo look is slowly disappearing as the sky gets bluer and the daylight gets longer ! I am still sleeping with a winter duvet and pyjamas were substituted years ago with track suit bottoms, t shirt and a fleece ! Last night was the first night this year that I felt warm in bed ! wehoo !
The muscular pain is still quite disabilitating - especially my back, making sitting or standing uncomfortable ! I have to keep changing position... one of the reasons why my trips to the cinema ceased years ago.
Luckily I have a very comfortable sofa which I have definitely bonded with !
How does the warmer weather help with anybody else on the raynauds scelroderma diagnosis journey ??
Anyone else stripping off a layer of the eskimo outfit ?
Happy summer solstice everyone !!
