Today's funny

Nov 14, 2016 9:50 PM

Since I've been in a flare up for about a month and a half and every time I think it can't get any worse it does so I'm looking at the funny. My bed sheets smell so good!! I've been putting essential oils/creams on like crazy this past week and I haven't been able to wear much clothing to bed so it ends up all over my sheets. They smell like wintergreen and peppermint!

I also haven't really been able to eat in a week so it's making me hungry too

I hope you've been drinking plenty of fluids....I don't want you to end up in hospital because you've dehydrated....small sips often. Have you tried to have soups or smoothies? I can highly recommend MizzMonroe's chicken soup, it's delicious.
I know being in a flair is no fun....I think I'm now reaching my 7th week with my TN flair which I've only really been able to have soups an smoothies because it's too painful for me to chew!
I can imagine the smell I love most essential oils and always have my diffuser on when I'm at home.....that's a hell of a lot lately!....have the oils and creams helped you much?
