Football, Food, and Fibromyalgia: Finding Joy In The Simple Things

Reclaiming HOPE

Football, Food, And Fibromyalgia: Finding Joy In The Simple Things, https://reclaiminghope.blogSo yesterday was the official start of football season in our house. I think it technically started last Thursday, but we only watch the games when one of our teams is playing. We have a divided household (I’m a Panthers fan, hubby’s a Giants fan) so when either team is playing, you can find us in front of the TV rooting for whoever’s team is playing. It only gets ugly if they play each other. 😂

Whenever we have a game, I make some kind of snacks. Yesterday it was simple — I put some wings in the air fryer then tossed them in sauce when they came out, and made cold spinach dip with veggies. Sometimes I cook something that’s a little more labor-intensive, but it’s not really what we’re eating or even the football game that’s important. What’s important is that we’re able to spend some time together…

Review – 31 Days of Expressive Writing for Chronic Illness and Pain

Being Lydia!

“I have been given this course as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although this course was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.”

“31 Days of Expressive Writing for Chronic Illness and Pain” is an online course from Esther at Life In Slow Motion. The course gives you 10 – 15-minute journaling assignments to help you work through your feelings, grief, and other personal responses to life with chronic illness and/or pain.

I have to say that this was an experience far beyond what I expected, in a very positive way. It taught me that I wasn’t as “okay” with my health situation as I thought I was. And it also showed me that as a writer, I wasn’t using my skills to help me. I use my blog to share my stories…

Product Review – The Fay Farm Soap and Muscle Rub

Being Lydia!

“I have been given these products as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “

When I was selected for The Fay Farm review and able to choose two items from their vast product lines, I chose carefully. I wanted products that might make a difference in my life and in the lives of anyone who would read this review.

I ended up choosing the Warming Muscle Rub and Healing Hemp Goat Milk Soap. Now the muscle rub is probably an obvious choice because I have very sore muscles. The soap might not be such as popular choice; however, I picked it for the sole reason that I wash my hands a lot and they get very sore and stiff with regular…

Fibromyalgia Flares: Do You Experience Any Warning Signs?

Reclaiming HOPE

Various warning signs with text overlay: Fibromyalgia Flares: Do You Experience Any Warning Signs? https://reclaiminghope.blogLast night was a long night. In addition to loud peals of thunder and rain pelting the roof, our cell phones kept blaring out several severe weather warnings. Things finally calmed down, and we went to sleep with the now-soft pitter-patter of rain on the roof. That is, until 3:00AM when the phones blared out another flash flood warning. We finally went back to sleep and woke up to — surprise! surprise! (not really) — no power. Shoutout to our wonderful linemen around here though, they had us back up and running by 8:00. Imagine my surprise when I turned on the TV and saw that our little city had made the national news! They were reporting that less than a mile from where we live, people had been evacuated due to fears of a dam breach. That wasn’t the only evacuation going on either…. All of this was going…
