Guest Blogger and A Hug

16 Feb

LiveWire 3 here! I have just had a day out with LiveWire 2 and my grandad to Eden. I took many, many photos in the Rainforest biome – as it is so big! I took a few photos in the Mediterranean biome but sadly my phone lost battery so I had to resist the urge to take a photo (although I actually couldn’t). There were so many beautiful sights to see but if I took a photo of everything I would have been there all day and I would have had 1,000 photos. I had a really fun day and I am ready for a nice sleep (probably dreaming about all the flowers and plants).

Yesterday this lovely card arrived from a reader in the North East who has become a friend.  It was accompanied by a little bag of beautiful sea-glass which I will incorporate into some glass work at some point.

I was in great need of a hug as I am in the throes of my second attack of gout so I couldn’t go on the planned day out with our LiveWires. The first attack was just three weeks ago. and took me by surprise. I thought it was an illness of old, male heavy drinkers and hadn’t a clue about how painful it is.  I have advice to change my lifestyle (and some medication) but as the suggested lifestyle is the way we live and eat anyway, I don’t know what to change.
Lovely T, LiveWire no 3, undertook to take some photos for me and tonight we have picked a selection for you.

    What are the triggers?

      That’s the question! I don’t drink much and have had none since the first attack. The only meat I eat is chicken and red meat is a trigger for some. I do like prawns but have had none since the first attack. It’s the same for all the triggers except stress and that has been a problem for the last 3 months and isn’t resolved so…. I had no idea how excruciating gout pain is.

        Pain is so debilitating. I have a problem shoulder which has been causing issues since my last covid vaccination. Not sure whether joint or muscle and whether it’s simply due to all the wet weather we’ve had.

      I don’t know what the triggers are for me. I’m keeping a food diary to try to discover what it might be.

    Thanks Livewire 3 for your lovely photos. The Eden Project is a fabulous place to spend time in and especially when it is a rainy day. Sadly taking photos on the phone does drain the battery, it has happened to me too!
