-Working from bed today. Yesterday was a bit nightmarish. I had either a 24 hr flu, or a severe fibro flare. After going to bed at 9 last night, I feel mostly better today. My back just feels like someone threw a cement block at it. Normal for me unfortunately. I'm pretty sure stress & a crappy nighttime routine are the cause, this time. Although, I've been on a strict light's out by 10:30 pm for the last 5 or so days.

-So the hustle continues from bed. I don't know if I'll be able to work out today, it may just be a yoga day. Maybe. I hope everyone is having a better time than I am. If not, rest if you can and hopefully, you'll feel better tomorrow.

Fall officially started this past Saturday & so far I love it. Here's what I love about fall (I was thinking of writing autumn, but who am I kidding. I don't think I've ever said autumn out loud in my life. Well, until I'm reading this out loud, anyway...)

  • The cool, crisp weather. Breathing in that air is great.
  • The late sunrises. Especially great, when you can sleep in.
  • The bugs burrowing away. Wherever they go, peace be with them.
  • The fashions look & feel better to me.
  • The leaves are dying, but the colour change is beautiful.

What do you love about fall?

I'm also trying something new in my diet, to help with my Fibromyalgia symtoms. It's called maca root and it's used for various other aliments like infertility & libido. I've been adding a tsp of it to my daily protein shakes. I'll see in 30 days or so, if I have more energy & less of this soul-sucking fatigue.

I've also heard about consuming a low oxalate diet, to help with Fibromyalgia symptoms. Spinach, which I add to my protein shakes are apparently very high in oxalates. But then spinach is another good source of vegetable protein. I can't seem to win with the food. But one thing at a time. Here is an article on Fibromyalgia and Oxalates, from http://restormedicine.com.

Has anyone had any success with maca root, or a low oxalate diet?

This week is also continued editing of my short story, and studying for my writing course final. The course went by quicker than I thought, it feels like I just started it. More on my thoughts, after my final exam.

Till next time,
