"This illness is to fatigue,
what a match is to a nuclear bomb.
It's an absurd mischaracterization!"

End of July - End of Good Month

Well... tomorrow it becomes August. Wow - where did the summer go? I had the best month of health I have had in... at least a year! Wow!

But - at least for now, that is gone - like July is gone.

I've been sitting here for an hour, trying to put into words what it is like to have a month like this end... but I can't. I can't get my brain to work, I can't explain what the fatigue is like, I can't even put into words all the fun things I did this past month.

But I felt I needed to touch bases with you all. So instead of words... let me share some of the "worship in art" that I've enjoyed this month!

I also spent a lot of time working on a very special comission and I hope to post about this soon!

Thanks for visiting!!!

  1. Oh Melanie,

    I knew you were struggling. I am glad you 'reached' our through words and art and let us know how you were really feeling. It IS hard to put into words how the 'fatigue' feels--it's not a term that does justice to how we become a wet dishrag in all respects--mentally, physically, and emotionally. And sometimes spiritually too. I know it doesn't help you one bit right now, but if you had this great month in July, I believe you can have one again. That this WILL pass. That doesn't mean it doesn't just plain STINK though! Getting a taste of better things than losing it is so hard.
    I JUST woke up! And it is 3 pm our time. So, I'm pretty crashed myself! YIKES! So, off with me to try to get some food in me. Notice I 'sensed' you needed a hug again last night? That is just so awesome! Thank you God! For our 'sensing' each other's needs and for the gift of you in my life.
    I love you!
    Love, Em
