Rest & Recreation – Another Kidney Infection

I had a flare-up of fibromyalgia at the end of last week complete with the Glums which is where you wake up feeling like you’re at the bottom of a dark pit with no way out. The only way out of this is sit back, relax, tell yourself “This too will pass” and eventually you wake up one day wondering why the hell you felt such darkness and despair. Experience helps weather these storms!

However, I’ve ended up with another kidney infection which I’m treating with antibiotic, home-made lemon barley water, various supplements and homeopathic remedies.

I’ve decided this is a wake-up call to take far better care of myself and have a complete break and rest for the rest of the week, at least until Friday.

Thanks for your patience and, hopefully, understanding.  Back in due course – ciao, hasta la vista!

    1. Thanks, Honey, for your very kind words. Thankfully it’s quite warm here in North Cyprus as I’ve found the cold really slows down recovery from kidney infection.

  2. Take care. Put your feet up. BTW I like your word for it, the Glums. Apt.


    1. Yes, the Glums, sums it up perfectly, doesn’t it? Having a good rest and as I said above, it’s fairly warm here in North Cyprus which really helps.
