CORONAVIRUS REST + RECOVERY.
Hey friends, a lot of you already know but I'll reiterate... ya good sis had coronavirus and is recovering. Back at the end of June I thought I was having allergy issues but pushed through and restocked the shop. I decided to quarantine while I waited on my test results but my 14 days was up before I received them. (Wild, right?) 20 days after locking myself in a bedroom I found out I had been COVID19 positive. With the help of my sister I was able to ship everything ordered while I was ill but it was hard. As hell. If I don't share anything of worth to you besides this, please know that the recovery even for a healthy middle aged person is long and difficult. It is now early September and I am still in recovery. I have chronic fatigue, phantom nerve pain, brain fog, no stamina, have lost so much weight, and am also losing quite a bit of hair. I have random heart palpitations and difficulty breathing. During this process we also purchased a house and have been slowly renovating a space + moving. The shop has fallen by the wayside but I am finishing up a batch of lovingly crafted goodies today! To everyone who has supported me throughout this process and extended grace, please know I truly appreciate you. I had nightmares while I was in quarantine about people being angry that I was taking so long to ship or respond to their questions. I have had large portions of time with no computer or wifi access while ill and moving. I thank y'all for seeing my humanity. 2020 isn't a normal year. So much is in flux. Everything is slow. Everything asks for your patience, attention, and sincerity. If you've been with me for a while you know I am all about self care. All about rest. All about tending to your best thing, you. The past couple months have tasked me to put my money where my mouth is. I have had to lay down, take care, and focus on myself. This month my grandson is entering the world. LSB will crank out the most lovely candles you've ever gifted to yourself or others. I am focused on nesting and feeling cozy. I'll be sharing that energy with you.
