Sunday thoughts from a Fibromyalgia mind #18/4

If you are new to reading my blog Sunday thoughts from a fibro mind are just a small update on my inner thoughts from the week usually typed out with my Sunday morning coffee and some of the images from my phone. (If I have any from that week) 

Sunday thoughts are huge today as I have had such an unplanned busy week. THREE times I have done something this week and that is huge for me. Usually, my body throws a hissy fit if I push for two things so this week I have pushed way too far... But it has been lovely!

I managed to get three selfies to remind myself of my busy week. Really can't advocate this enough as it is a visual reminder that there are some wonderful days. I often look at myself in the mirror with sadness on the painful days as pain is visible in my eyes and in all honesty, I look like a bus has hit me. It is hard to visualise ever feeling pretty on days like this. It is hard to visualise dressing nicely when you can not even bring yourself to shower due to pain and lethargy. 

I particularly love this photo best, I felt pale so brushed on some tan shimmer from last year and I feel I look radiant next to my kitchen's yellow wall. The lighting was perfect and the sunshine caught my face well. Hooray for a good photo, especially today as I have been in bed all day.

Do you ever feel guilty when you have good days?
I do, so I started writing a blog about the guilt associated with a good day, look out for it this week.

Last week my extra energy was in sync with the glorious sunshine. So many small beautiful moments looking at budding flowers or watching our little tortoise in the garden. As always with our wonderful British weather the sunshine was soon followed up by a massive downpour and as always my body felt the weather change hard. Fibromyalgia is very like arthritis with changes in weather.

My eldest two sons graduate from University this year so we had a special evening out to watch a performance from my eldest in Liverpool. It is such a beautiful city and I really do love taking photographs with pride. I am a building nerd so I may start a section on my local architecture, it may take time as I am hardly out in our big city but when I am I will grab some images and write about each in turn.

The week ahead is now a painful one so I will be catching up on some crochet and if possible finishing some of the many sewing projects I have on the go. Sewing for me requires more dexterity and brain matter than crochet does so I never get to finish anything. 

But I will try...
I will find a way to make sure this week is wonderful at my level of energy.
