Rising on the Bounce

September 3rd marked Ncubators 4 month milestone. And then I had a crash.

We chronics use this word to indicate an ugly relapse into old symptoms, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to months to years depending on the crash.

You never know till you come out of one, what severity or length of recovery time youre looking at.

I guess I would term this one a bounce, rather than a crash. Symptoms will lift considerably for awhile, say a few hours, and then descend to crush once again.

The upswings are lasting longer. I have cut way back on activity for now, even my beloved writing.

Live to rise up another day.
