lots of words in no particular order

the winter weather has officially frozen my brain making it extremely difficult to get much verbiage out in an organized written fashion.

I feel a need to purge all the gunk out of my nugget onto the internets and share a few things I've been keeping low key over the last few months. (aplogizes now for sounding 'hey! look at me' )

School went pretty well last quarter though towards the end I felt dumb as rocks. October was the worst and a bit of a huge struggle as my fibro began expressing it's opinion on the whole back to school matter.

Mental clarity and stamina went out the window (both side effects of fibromyalgia ) enough that I actually called my physician for a consultation. Nothing life threatening, just life interference type things. More on this in a sec.

October/November played out a sad closure to part of my knit life. The first yarn store I ever visited, learned so much at announced it would shut it's door in November :(

November was all about the end of fall quarter and tons of working from the couch. My dr. and I meet up to compare options for improving my level of function and by turkey day decided on a minor surgery to hopefully relive some of my chronic (read: energy-sucking) pain.

Out-patient surgery was in mid-December and things went as well as planned. Health professionals were all super nice to me and accommodating whenever they could be. Family has continued to be a big help, especially my mum and wonderful hubby. Recovery is slow but consistent which is all I can ask for at this point in my life.

It's been a year. We've celebrated holidays, birthdays and wedding anniversaries. Struggled, succeed and held on for dear life. So I'll close out now and offer best wishes to everyone for a better year full of happiness, health and prosperity.
