A thought:

The working class girl in me believes that people have the best conversations while they are in motion. This explains the ease of a client in a good hairdresser's chair. This also explains why so many folks prefer to congregate in kitchens.


I am not feeling well lately. I feel a sense of physical malaise that makes me think that something is wrong. But my skin is clear, I have no fever, shakes, chills, etc. I haven't been drinking at all, to try and combat it, and I am making sure to have a diet full of all the right things (plus coffee). But still my muscles ache and feel like bricks. The last time I felt something like this was when I developed mastitis... but I don't have any chance of that happening right now, and my whole feeling is a little bit different from that, anyhow.

What does one do when one feels unwell, but has no signs of being unwell other than muscle ache and malaise? This has been going on up and down for almost a week.

Have you taken time to rest - truly rest - for a few hours? It may be that your body is fighting something (medically or emotionally - you ARE making some big decisions lately) and needs to focus on that, rather than sending lots of energy to your muscles and conscious mind. Meditation? Yoga?

On the Everything Is Science side, if this continues or feels medical in nature, you may want to have your blood drawn and get your levels checked. It could be a B or D vitamin imbalance, anemia, thyroid...lots of stuff that's easy to take care of once that blood test comes back.

I ha a rest today. And a glass of wine, which helped a lot.

This is some mad hazy air, too.

Could it be allergies? A lot of people are having crazy reactions to the season change right now.

I go see my naturopath and have him muscle test me.

It sounds like you are going through a lot right now so being run down and even having compromised immunity would be par for the course... any chance you could get some extra sleep in at night? If it were me I'd try to get an early bed, naps if at all possible, keep diet 100% clean (whatever that means for you, for me it'd be no sugar, grains or alcohol) and force myself to exercise and if it didn't clear up after another week go see a doc for blood work. Hope it passes soon...

It sounds like a version of the seasonal affective disorder I get every summer. For me, rain is the best solution. Your mileage may vary. ;)

Bike ride. Which reminds me, I'll help you find a bike (unless you want to wait to buy one...)
