The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

~cut, paste & fibromyalga~

this is mostly a cut and paste from my M.E blog as i do not have the energy to do a whole new post~so apologies if you have been there first!

i was lucky enough to get a 'same day' doctors appointment today that has opened another door to another problem.

i have had increasing pain in what i can only describe as my bones and joints, a deep aching, pain that makes me grit my teeth and feel close to tears~more recently the pain has become so intense i have been able to do little more than lay in bed with a hot water bottle to ease the many points of pain.

well my doctor is 99% sure i have a cross-over of M.E and Fibromyalga~he examined me for the fibromyalga pressure points~oh my and did some of those feel tender!
i am off for the blood tests that will rule out any other possible problems in two weeks and have a follow up appointment with my gp in six weeks to see how the amitriptyline helps me with the pain and my sleep.

he sent me away with a few web sites to find more information and a lot of things that don't quite fit in with my M.E now make a lot of sense to me~which makes me sure that he is right with his diagnosis.

so something new to manage and learn to live with!

~but i am still smiling~

wow, laoi, that just seems like so much to have to deal with all at once. i hope the amitriptyline is helpful to you. thinking of you..

ps...i'm very glad you are still smiling! :)

Oh Laoi, it doesn't rain but it pours, eh?!

Learning to manage, yes, but here's hoping 'they' can help you to find ways of coping and easing the pain and stress.

Bless you Laoi. At least you have an understanding GP. Mine things I am just depressed and prescribes me Fluexitine, an anti depressant. One day the medical profession will come to realise the discrimination us sufferers of M.E are subjected to. A friend of mine is also under the same GP, as she feels she has M.E too, and again he has told her, its all on her mind!.

Did you see this on the news the other day, very interesting stuff, now the doubters will have to take notice:

All things share the same breath~the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
