Fibro Feelings – Sights & Scents of Spring

What is Fibro Feelings?

I can’t believe spring is just one week away. Caring for an infant really made my winter fly by. I had planted some bulb flowers later in the season last fall and I’m happy to see that it looks like all the bulbs did well and are beginning to sprout and bloom! They were my first ever bulb plants and I’m looking forward to seeing them year after year without having to do any new planting. Perennials truly are a fibromyalgia gardener’s friend. The Helpful Hubby watched The Boisterous Boy while I popped out to do some long overdue pruning to some of my perennials this weekend. I was lucky enough to even have some sunshine while I was doing it and afterwards didn’t get too sore.

Ever since the end of the pregnancy I’ve been taking more bath soaks to loosen my muscles. I ran out of my bath salts and really wanted to find one that had Epsom salts and natural fragrance, but skipped any artificial scents. I hadn’t found anything pure at Target or easily on Amazon so I looked at Whole Foods and found some by Soothing Touch! I got their peppermint rosemary bath salts and the wonderful scent carries through multiple rooms of the house when I use it with the bathroom door open. Talking about it makes me wish I could go take a soak right now!

Usually I make a big meal and invite friends over for Easter, but I don’t think I’ll be doing that this year, with the baby. He’s way too young for any sort of Easter egg hunting this year, but next year he should be a great age for it! This year I will just be lucky to have put my winter decorations away and have put up some spring ones. Having a storage ottoman has made switching out some of my decorations much easier. Prior to keeping those items in a storage ottoman I used to have to get a step ladder to reach a shelf in the closet for the table cloths and re-stack and dig through my decoration tubs for hand towels. Being able to switch out those to household items helps me feel like I’m at least moving in the right direction. Even if you don’t keep decorative items in your storage ottoman, I’d highly suggest getting one. They’re so easy to use compared to closets!

Are you gearing up for spring?


It won’t be long before I’ll have a bloom this big!*

I am a 62 grandma.I was diagnosed 16 months ago but had it for a few years before that. What a blow to my beautiful life. For a few months I did not see why I needed to live but of course got past that. I GUESS I am at the acceptence stage. I have f ound a good doctor and that helps I also have a wonderful husband who it feels like I have turned into a care giver. I miss him as my lover.I woke up this morning took my pills and threw up half hour later.what a way to start my fibro day. I live in Albany Oregon. Thank you for your time.
