For those of us that live in areas that experience the 4 seasons, I always want to talk about SPRING.
After dealing with the Cold, the Snow, the Ice, the Wind and much more, the thought of Spring and what it means can be so uplifting.
I know personally, I am at my worst during the winter. Not just in terms of medical/physical status, but in emotional ways. So many times, I feel like the ole Grizzly bears, that during winter go into the caves to hibernate. That can describe me. I go into slow motion, I am not energetic, I put off more and more for tomorrow what could be done today.
But, as Spring comes around, I like that ole Grizzly starts to come out of his cave. Shaking off all the inactivity of winter and gearing up.
A new life, a new beginning. Spring to me does that and so much more. The ground comes alive. And I love my property, the lawn, the shrubs, the flowers and our herbal garden.
While this is a time to get ready for so much new, its also a time of Warning!
I know one of members I respect and have enjoyed to get to know is Debbie (Sunny1966) understands this oh so much!
Both of us, see the outdoors, the new life outside and we tend to forget out medication situation and run about doing everything we can!
But what happens? I know with Debbie and with myself, we just welcome Flare ups and pain that we could have avoided.
So, this is more a less a Warning to everyone,
Please do not over do things, do not exceed or ignore your restrictions. If we do too much, we just invite problems, and those problems are not only ours, they also impact our loved ones
