Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Natalie the Explorer. I have just a few minutes before getting ready to go get a massage, so this is a breakfast/ coffee chat. Grab whatever beverage you like!
Do you think I use enough anti-inflammatory foods in my breakfast? That’s turmeric powder on my cereal and in the background is an ashwagandha chocolate powder that I put in my hot tea. It actually tastes pretty good! I’m still dealing with the shoulder/arm/hand pain though, and I’m going to see the orthopedic doc this week. At least we’ll see if this needs surgery or is just an inflammatory problem (said appointment is in September. One thing at a time)!
I think I eat pretty healthy foods. My only change I could make is sugar free juice and gluten free cereal. 😭 I’ll only do that if I have to. Time will tell.
In brighter news, Bixby dog got a haircut this week! He’s always a little nervous after going through that sort of day, so I make sure to give him extra attention for looking so cute. As you might guess, he loves it!
School is going well and we’re getting used to an online textbook. I think I’m getting the hang of it! So, today I pamper myself: massage and pedicure. I’m worth it and I work hard for my paycheck.
I also posted today about my book, Undercurrents in Time, because, after all, I am a writer and author, despite my current physical setback. News club will meet after school Monday, so I can encourage a whole new set of young writers, and that warms my heart!
Have a great weekend and a better week to come!

Hello Pamela, my neck/shoulder problem has got so bad I decided to do something about it. Saw the G.P. who said it was neck not shoulder. That has been treated for 14 months by a physiotherapist. I now await an MRI scan to see what is actually going on.
I sit at my computer with a neck brace to get pain relief and have uped my analgesic drugs considerably.
Keep in touch and we shall have to compare notes. How sad is that. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Joy, I pray you get an answer or solution soon! I should find something out Wednesday. I will update.

Thank you Pam,I too hope yours is soon better. Joy.
I think the omnipresent heat and travel of the past 6 weeks have burned me out, but thanks to eating decently and better use of meds, I’m feeling pretty good.
I hope that you do get some clarity on how to finally dump that pain you’ve lived with.
Thank you, Gary.
Gary, Could you please link your coffee share here? I am on my phone and can’t find it.
Sure – I was on my phone too and my WP phone app is terrible for such things.
