There’s a gentle warming from the sun and frequent showers brings budding trees and flowers come forth. There is a sweet scent in the air as it begins to warm from the winter cold. There is a newness all around that brings feelings of joy and comfort. One knows Summer will be here soon, excitement of all the activities one has missed in the sleeping Winter.
For those of us with Chronic Illness it also brings muscle cramps and spasms as our bodies feel the shift that healthy people do not feel. A pull, a pain as fingers, toes, hands and feet contort. We to are anxious for the Warmth of the sun but for reasons other than missed activities. We need the warmth so badly missed thru the Fall and Winter. As the nerves warm the pin and prick feeling begins, heated pain sear down tight muscles and tired nerves. Activities that were easy now strained as things awaken that were trying to sleep. One just wants to curl up in a warm blanket and not move. Warmth to relax the aching nerves and muscles are key, good sleep a must. So difficult to do, more difficult to explain to those around one. The pain will increase before it decreases like the ground and nature muscles and nerves are reawakening, stretching or trying to but for muscles and nerves that are ill it is painful. Spring is a delight but also a misery.
