My monthly reflection on life with chronic illness via A Chronic Voice's linkup party.
I’ve never particularly looked to New Year’s Day with much excitement or dread for that matter. Unlike a birthday that has a personal significance in marking my journey through life and time, New Year’s Day seems like an insignificant day in the passage of time.
Along with the excitement of going to visit family and friends, my spoonie body has come to develop a lot of frustration and anxiety with travel. Airplane travel is the worst of all.
For the past several years, you have been my constant companion. I honestly can't remember the last time that felt completely energized and refreshed. Your hold on my life has at times been all-consuming and suffocating. Even at the best of times, I know that grip has not fully let me go, not really.

Hey there! Have you missed me? I wish I had some good news to report since my last post, but unfortunately, October was a bad pain and fatigue month.
Even after nine years of living with my invisible chronic illnesses (Fibromyalgia and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), I am still amazed at the multitude of seemingly unrelated symptoms that I experience.
For this post, I’m doing something a little different. The lovely Sheryl Chan, who runs the A Chronic Voice blog, has started monthly linkup parties where chronic illness bloggers are asked to share their perspectives on five different topics.
Aloha! I recently returned from the most wonderful vacation to Hawaii, and it is one of the best vacations I’ve ever had. Partly, it was because Hawaii is simply amazing and I made lots of great memories on the trip. However, an even bigger part of it being a successful trip is that I managed to not have a flare-up as a result of my trip!
Welcome to my blog, Spoons & Sass! My goal with this blog is to share my experience of managing Fibromyalgia. It is my sincerest hope that this my musings on life with chronic pain will help others who find themselves in a similar boat. Secondly, I also hope that this blog will help increase awareness of this poorly understood condition.
