Open Link Monday in the garden again

For Open Link Monday at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, I have nothing original to say. I've been apologizing all over the place to my friends at Real Toads, first for my absence, then for my absence of mind.
My Real Toads friend Sherry asked me if the weather might be contributing to my pain, however, so I checked the humidity today.

Oh, yes, Sherry, you nailed it. Fibromyalgia and humidity do not mix. I moved away from the wonderful west coast for that very reason, but I forgot to remember. Thanks, my friend.

open link
has come again,
is going fast,
and I can’t think...
my brain
won't last...
I spend all my time
checking symptoms online.
I never want to see
another doctor in my life:
they can have
all my parts
when I depart.
it’s in
my will.

I hear you, my friend. I know CFS/fibromyalgia and a host of other syndromes and the change of seasons, especially from light into grayness, affects us mightily. Not to mention all he other Stuff, that goes along with aging. I know that panic-y feeling of Being Behind Online. But trust that, when we come up for air, our friends will all still be waiting there for us, happy to hear from us.

Hey, I only just read online that Doris Lessing has died. OMG. That is huge.

I know that distracted disconnected feel. And I agree about doctors! Feel better soon.

Dear Kay,
Feel better soon .... darn that humidity!

Oh boy … checking symptoms online can be a never-ending process. Your condition would not have liked the BC rainy weather today, Kay. It was a very damp and dark by five with not a deer, itchy or otherwise, in sight. Hope you feel lots better soon! :)

Oh, Kay do be gentle with yourself!
You are in pain and I am with you...your poem captured how I feel.
I am tired of the medical drama-so tired. Hang in there and remember tomorrow you will be better! Write, sketch do what makes you happy!
Pet Lindy for me~ (((hugs)))
