I'm Moving! A Life in Transition...

My husband has gotten a job promotion to another state - so we are moving! I've never lived anywhere else but here, and it's going to be a huge change for me, particularly with rebuilding my medical treatment team and maintaining my daily management of pain. 

Frankly, I'm scared. Sure it will be a new adventure, but it will be "without a net" - no family, only a couple of peripheral acquaintances, no support system, no doctors lined up (yet), and a community swimming pool which I pray will work for me. It's overwhelming. 

However, I'm trying to pull myself together and push forward into the unknown with an open mind and willing heart. It feels like such a thorny situation, but I keep reminding myself that I can still bloom in a different climate. I may be trading my beloved dahlias for desert gardening, but beauty can be found in many forms.

A mini cactus with many blooms in my birdbath.

Time is racing and I'm not going to be able to keep up the blog while we are packing and transitioning. So after Tuesday-Newsday this coming week, I'll be on hiatus until mid-May - unless there's a really big issue about chronic pain in the news, in which case I'll do my best to get that information posted here on the blog if I can.

Hopefully, our move will go smoothly and I'll be back as soon as I can. Say a prayer for me, and I pray in return that your pain will be eased and well-managed.

Blessings to all!
