I'm having cabin fever for the past month with my flare. I'm planning on typing up some more stuff for school, doing some nail polishing, facial mask, taking a nice hot bath (possibly with bubbles), moisturizing my body/stretching, putting on my Yoga Toes (http://www.yogapro.com/products/YogaToes.html), and watching TV/reading for school. There will definitely be some candles involved too.

Sounds a great plan, mlatida.

I'm going to need to join you in giving my body some tlc at some point. My legs!!!!! aren't fit to be seen in public. Good thing it's winter...

I hope you feel happier by evening.

And I've washed most of the dishes, wiped the benches, and swept the kitchen floor. And done & hung a load of washing. Whooppee. Not bad, seeing as I'm having trouble standing for more than a few minutes at a time.

Oh god, everyone I come across is depressed! I'm sorry, choc. Hope you feel better soon... *hugs* :-/

I didn't post a TLC today, because basically I didn't do anything. Ate too much for dinner, and I was in a braindead limbo for the rest of the evening. Not much pain with it, but plenty of zombie-ness. At least with pain, you feel something...

*sees time* So late again... Why can't I just go to bed early? What's wrong with me? Sorry. I'm feeling low, too... :-/

Goodnight, folks... :-/
