Updates!!! (Awesome ones too!!!)

Well!! I have had this blog going on in my head since Thursday night…of course I had to get sick!! I have literally spent Friday night, Saturday, and tonight either in my bed or on my couch. I had a major fibro flare…my body just was in such pain and then what might be an RA flare in my back. Until now I wouldn’t say I had RA in my back or neck….but after this weekend I am not sure. I could barely move…my back was in such a pain. I was laying on a heating pad, taking hot shower, and applying the ointment to help ease some of the pain.

It didn’t really work….but the rest did help. I woke up this afternoon and I will say I feel a little better mentally (not as foggy). The positive news…I did get homework done!!! Thankfully this week was a lot of reading so I focused on that. I have more to read here shortly but I pushed myself to study. I found it takes a lot of determination to study when you feel like -20 on a scale of 1-10. I will say this has been one of the worst weekends ever!!

But positive thinking!! I am resting, I am studying, and I am blogging ๐Ÿ™‚ Which brings me to some awesome news!! As you probably see ย on the side bar. I am now blogging and bringing awareness to the amazing things that one of my favorite organizations does…this is the World Help (http://worldhelp.net/). I was blessed to travel with World Help to Rwanda back in 2011. It was a life changing journey! I cannot wait for the opportunity to travel with them again. ย World Help raises awareness to various humanitarian needs such as the current crisis in Syria, the needs in Haiti, orphanages in Africa, and many other things . I am so excited to share tidbits of what they do, stories of what is going on with them, and maybe even ย one day my experience of another World Help trip.

Next time I will share more about my Rwanda experience, and more pictures too. Africa was an amazing place! I cannot wait to go back ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I am so excited for some thing new and positive to do with my life. As those who have been reading this for a while know…I am an encourager…. I love to work with people. World Help is an amazing way to reach those facing major humanitarian crisis! I definitely encourage you to check them out!!

Now off to balance some more!! I realized this weekend…balance wow is critical!! Sleep is critical. I had a routine when I was working part time, now that I am full time I have to make a new routine. This reminds me of when I was working on my MA, I had just been diagnosed and I was working full time. That time I ended up in hospital for 14 days! So this time around my goal is to avoid that MAJOR medical bill!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I send you spoons and positive thoughts!! Hang in there! Fight for another day!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Feeling tired now from a busy day. I volunteer at the senior center twice a week. I enjoy helping out in the kitchen, packing together meals for the meals on wheels and also serving lunch to the seniors that come in to eat. It’s very rewarding! ๐Ÿ™‚
