Post Flare-Up Recovery ActivitiesAs I started to feel better, it would have been so easy to throw myself back into things. If you remember the Fibro or Faker post one of the things I talked about was guilt. Although I remembered to switch my Todoist app to holiday mode, to allow for the Flare-Up, I was experiencing. (Am I allowed to be impressed with myself considering I was not well at all?). I was itching to switch it on and start building my Karma again. I decided to deal with this by telling myself I had to have two whole days feeling as well as I could before I flicked the switch. Today I flicked it, but I am ensuring I only have light tasks on the list. One of the activities I have been doing over the last couple of days is binge-watching Youtube and looking at Instagram and other social media websites – like you do. This casual research has led me amongst other things to think about what type of spoonie I am. I think a natural conclusion is that I am a lifestyle spoonie. Just for a bit of fun, I have put together this little quiz for you to try for yourself.
Your Type of SpoonieOf course, as I mentioned before that was just a bit of fun, very few spoonie blogs and social media accounts are one dimensional, and everyone at least dips their toes into other areas but here are some Fibro/Spoonie blogs that loosely fall into the categories. Do you have a blog or social media account and want it adding to one of the themes? Get in touch so I can get to know you better. ?

Lifestyle SpoonieBeing Fibro Mom Blooming Mindfulness While post Flare-Up recovering, I have been looking for blogs that fit into the different categories a few things came to mind. An awful lot of us are lifestyle bloggers, but the type of lifestyle content significantly differs so there is not very much repetition which is brilliant for our readers. Beverley has Vintage styling covered on her Instagram Feed (but this is separate to her blog Blooming Mindfulness), but unless I have missed anybody (sorry), there doesn’t seem to be a spoonie contemporary fashion blogger. If you are thinking of starting a blog and not sure what to talk about here is an idea…
I have enjoyed bringing you this light-hearted post Flare-Up blog post; it is great to be back in the driving seat. I am still taking things reasonably easy but I will have at least one edition for you next week. It will probably be Friday again because Michael is at home on Monday because of the Bank Holiday here in the UK. There is a possibility (health and weather permitting) that we will try to go out somewhere tomorrow so I will no doubt share a photo or two on Social Media.
