I have to say that this weather is nuts! We had 80 degree temperatures than fell overnight to 40 then 70 degrees down to 20 and from tornado warnings to snow in less than 24 hours. Let me tell you, it is crazy here in eastern Kentucky.
I got my cold weather plants in the garden so hoping they get going in spite of this weather. They are able to withstand a freeze or two but who knows what will happen here next?
As for lupus, believe it or not, I have had some pain but not as bad as it could be for this type of barometric pressure up and downs. I did have a stomach thing though. The big D hit me the same day the vomiting started in my husband. I do not know how we got it but it hit and stayed a day and a half. I am finally feeling better today.
I did manage to cook beef ribs in the crock pot and use the bones for bone broth. I got it canned yesterday, six pints of beef bone broth. That is about all I have accomplished though this week.
Hope you are all feeling well.
We all have bad days. At times we feel like giving up. I have been feeling a little like giving up on my blog lately. I have this blog and a patreon page I have been using for my other interests plus lupus too. I find that I am spending time, a lot of it, writing and researching the articles I post. Some days it takes me forever to research and find new valuable topics for those of you who read the information. I have been upbeat lately too. However, that has changed a bit lately.
I am debating continuing this blog and/or the patreon page. I got a subscriber on my patreon page and I was so happy, then they cancelled. It left me feeling a bit defeated. I put just as much effort into that page as this one and since I am learning about all this natural good treatments, sometimes it is more than I do for lupus alone.
My husband thinks I should continue and just look at it all as a kind of diary for now. Write to myself, for myself. If anyone reads it then it is a positive thing.
I am not sure if you all realize this but I get traffic from all over the world on this blog. I had one from Pakistan the other day. I hope it enlightens those interested in learning about lupus. My goal was to find material about lupus and post it in this one spot for folks to find a lot of material in one place. I always note where the information comes from so they can go to that site for more information.
I just am having a bad few days it seems. I ran out of one of my supplements and I have found that it helps me quite a bit. If you factor in the rainy weather and planting the cold loving plants in my garden, then you can see why I am in pain and feeling a bit down.
I do not want a pity party. I am just putting it out here how I truly feel. I want to help others by providing a place they can read and learn about lupus. I also enjoy posting about the other things I enjoy. I made that patreon page to try to separate some of the stuff not lupus related, but include lupus in the page too. I really love posting recipes and stories about my hobbies and homesteading plus lupus topics.
Anyway, I am not usually a downer person but I have felt pretty low this week. It must be my turn to feel depressed a little. I will get over it but in the meantime, what do you all think? Opinions? I just hate to waste time from my life and yours if you are not reading the posts. Let me know what you think.
