Hello......... August was quite a busy month here at the Summerhouse, with a few trips out and about while I took a treatment break. So lovely to be able to go out and about without having to be bundled up in a hat and coat.
As always I had a couple of weeks of feeling a bit better, while off the antibiotics before my symptoms started to flare again, it's strange as every time this happens, it's like my body feels better for a break from the constant antibiotics, just for a week or so before my symptoms start to build again.
I guess it's finding the balance, anymore than a month without antibiotics and what ever it is I have, be it Lyme Disease of something else (no one really know) starts to relapse.
So September's here and I'm back on the antibiotics day two and I'm feeling awful stuck in bed in full Herx mode, which is indicative of Lyme Disease.
But at least I got a little break in August.
So August was not as sunny as I hoped but I had a wonderful time. With a trip to the Folk East festival and trips out and about locally. Lots of yarny goodness to, with Owl making and sparkly flowers. Also we saw lots of Yarn bombing on our travels.
Out in the garden there were hints of Autumn to be found, but the Geraniums, Roses and Fuchsia are still going strong, plus we have so many Conkers on the Horse chestnut this year, some are huge.
I'm still just about keeping up with my new year resolution to do more art My painting for August which I shared in my last post.
As for the Year in books I'm so far behind what with being busy and having limited energy I've not found much time for reading, so I have both July and August's book still on the go.
Plus I've started a new book, with all the weird stuff going on with my health. So three books on the go no wonder I'm running behind.
I decided on this new book as lately I've been baffling the medics, my Dr no longer knows what is wrong with me. It's either Lyme Disease, or a autoimmune disease (that's yet to be discovered) or something else. Basically I'm falling apart and no one seems to know, so I figured instead of worrying I'll do some reading up.
Well that's about it for August's round up, roll on the Autumn. Joining up with Laura's The year in books
