All Things Frozen

Brr It's cold, we have had freezing fog for the past two days and I cannot remember ever feeling this cold. Way too much happening here and still lots to do. Wish I could plug myself into a energy source and whee I would be off, knowing my luck it would short circuit, think hibernation may be a better idea.

Chocolate Fest

Thanks to a friends recent trip to the USA today I over indulged and now feel sick. Got to blame it on the Americans. The past few days have been pretty yuck, but I have managed, mostly via the Internet, to accomplish nearly all my Xmas shopping, now all I need is a magic fairy to wrap it for me. My friend arrived from Greece today, caught up with her on the phone and am looking forward to her visiting on Saturday , If I ply her with wine I am sure she will help put up the Xmas tree,only problem is I still have to go buy one.

I finally worked out how to add links, a major achievement as my brain cells are on a go slow tonight. I have been trying to decide whether to buy another camera, a DSLR as opposed to a compact. A bit senseless really considering the amount of time I actually get out of the house. I have been playing with my daughters Pentax but its way to heavy for me and I am a Fuji fan. Tired but wired tonight, a feeling which I hate, think I may need a chill pill.

Is Your Glass Half Full Or Half Empty

Today mine is empty,the after effects of a xmas shopping trip yesterday with my sister and brother-in-law. On days like this I always ask myself "Why Did You Do It". The answer would be because I would go insane if I didn't. I read earlier an article on CFS/ME which described how to promote healing through passion and improve your quality of life. Passion through music,art,creativity. So as I type I am listening to Bob Dylan sing. It also stated that you should try to experience feelings of gratitude,joy,compassion, love and kindness for yourself and others....which leads me back to my shopping expedition. My sister was my brain as she completely understood my lists ( scribbles on the back of envelopes) which came out of the depth of my handbag at regular intervals and she only raised her eyebrows and gave me funny looks a few times My brother-in-law provided a steady supply of bottled water,cups of tea and a turkey sandwich. All in all it was a nice day and after the pain killers kicked in I was even to be found sitting in Borders humming along to the xmas songs. So, for all that I am grateful and todays pay back has been worth it and tomorrow...who glass could be half full.
I came across some information on using VALGANCICLOVIR (a anti viral drug) for the treatment of ME. I think there may have been some trials done in America. For now it is time to experience joy and have Greek chocolate, I shall then see if I can find anymore information.
