Hey there! I hope you had a wonderful week!
If you’re a regular reader, you know that I have been battling some health issues stemming from a bad reaction to the vaccine as well as a reaction to an anti-anxiety med that I was given afterwards. I have some decent afternoons every now and again (my symptoms are always the worst in the mornings) where I feel almost human, but I am still extremely fatigued all the time and bedridden for the most part. Reactions to anti-anxiety meds can take months or even years to heal from. We haven’t had the vaccine around long enough to know how long it can take to heal from a reaction to it, but there are people that got it when it came out in the first part of the year and still fighting symptoms, so we know it can take at least a few months for some people. It’s been three months since I got the vaccine and six weeks since I stopped the anti-anxiety med. There is no way to know how long it would take me to heal from either the vaccine or the anti-anxiety med; let alone how long it will take me to heal from both at the same time. I am now facing the reality that this may be a long haul for me.
I do plan on keeping this party going as long as I’m able to, but since my health issues may take a long time to heal from, I don’t feel it helps to write in detail about them every week when there is no significant changes in my condition. I still feel I have to mention it here briefly so new readers will know why I’m not doing any other posts beyond Farmhouse Friday right now, but beyond that I’m trying to brainstorm ideas of what else I could write about every week. I haven’t been able to come with anything yet, so if you have any ideas, please let me know!

I was so hoping come the three-month mark that your vaccine reaction symptoms would lessen as they did me. I’m so sorry you are having such a tough time, Michelle, and I’m sending virtual hugs your way from Canada. As soon as the calendar flips to November, this gal is decorating for the holidays, because after this horrendous year, I need some sparkle. If we lived near each other, I’d come over and help you decorate that gorgeous farmhouse of yours too. Thank you for featuring my farmhouse pumpkins! xo
Awe thanks so much Marie – you’re too sweet! I wish we lived closer to each other too just so I could meet you in person! You’re very welcome for the feature and have fun decorating for the holidays!
