I knew it was a matter of time. My body has started to manifest saturation. I've ignored earlier symptoms of stress, out of necessity to be honest, because of the house sale and move. But now I wish I slowed down! And rested more.
I've just discovered that my left hand too has developed the CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) and has to be fixed with surgery (not sure when), my chronic headaches are annoying me very much and the 'bad spells' have become even more frequent. Finally (hope that's all, folks!).... my body is completely covered in hives!! If you are not familiar with it, I'm speaking of migrant, extremely itchy bumps. I also have them on my face and hand palms. I'm going crazy :((
I suffer from allergies, but usually nothing that significant, and had the very same rashes only once, about 20 years ago. They lasted on/off more than one year, then suddenly disappeared. I bet in both cases it was stress + sunlight- I am extremely sensitive to light (so I have to ALWAYS wear hats and sunglasses in summer, and not clothes with very short sleeves) and we have experienced an early summer a couple of weeks ago, with hot temperatures, really unusual for this season.
Now I'm trying to de- stress, as this seems to be the best medicine (together with a tedious diet!!). Working outside in the shade when I can, sipping tea (coffee has been totally banished from my allowed beverages) and sketching new ideas down.
Found this old pink cup some days ago, when I've been presented a few unexpected hours out together with my husband. I am in love with it.
And to make my relax even more effective... I'm painting spring flowers. You know I am a March girl, and love everything with a spring feel!
It is hard to stay focused with those itchy-things everywhere, though. Hope they'll go away soon.
Hope you are doing great with allergies and pollens...
Have a happy ( and allergy- free) Easter week!
