Missing in Action – Not feeling like writing!


I haven’t felt like writing lately. I went to my writer’s group, but luckily I am way ahead on chapters that I can take for review.

I have become interested in crafting and started what they call “Junk Journals.” I am learning how to create them minus the junk part. I am not feeling the junkiness that this group loves. Mine are nice and neat, well eventually they will be neat as I am still learning how to make them and there are many ways. I made a baby book/journal/scrapbook for my newest grandchild. I have spent hours and I do mean many hours watching videos on youtube on how to construct and decorate the different types of junk journals and spent money on the supplies. I don’t believe it is the mania speaking here. I truly find it fascinating and have 2 birthdays this month to complete.

A true junk journal includes all the junk mail and trash you can accumulate and I am just not into that so mine are much neater and prettier.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity in Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS


Multiple Chemical Sensitivity in Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS

I am very sensitive to different chemicals up to and including candles and perfumes. You know how some people douse themselves in perfume. It just about kills me trying to breathe through that. I have to avoid the candle stores and perfume sections of stores. I can’t tolerate the scents.

A New Year Comes – Poem


A New Year Comes

By Teresa Smeigh December 2018

A new year is coming

Bringing many things.

All we can do is wait

And see what the good Lord brings.

Post-Exertional Malaise Overview


Post-Exertional Malaise Overview

This is so very real and right now worse than ever. Change my bed and it will take a few days to get over it. Go for groceries and between the worsened pain and the malaise I am out again for days. I can’t clean my apartment. It just sucks the life out of you.
