These last few days have been on the hard side. Since both of us have chronic health issues that wasn't unexpected. However, when you mix Cindy's tripping and hurting herself, with migraines from me you have a perfect storm of us sitting around doing nothing.
However, the way I see it is that we are decompressing from at least 2008 on. There is a lot of stored tension, anxiety, stress, mood stuff, etc... that we are finally coming out of our bodies. This is not as granola as it might sound. There has been research into "vacation migraines". These are basically episodes where the release of tension causes the system to react. We are merely going through that.
It sucks and we feel like idiots for coming all the way to VA to simply sit around someone else's house. And yet, it is days like a few ago, where we sit on the deck and enjoy what we have that make it all worth it. So yeah, sometimes the illness wins, but not everyday.
