At the same time, I began suffering from frozen shoulder on my right side in February. It was very bad in March especially when I had to sleep facing down or on my right side. The latter was just impossible and I would wake up many times a night with severe shoulder pains. It got worse in April before it began to settle down. At the same time, my left shoulder began to act up. I am much better now thanks to acupuncture and moxibustion.
With all these health issues I’ve had this year so far, I need a vacation badly. Yet, I do not have any more vacation days left. Sigh.
Fortunately, it has been nice around here this summer and I can enjoy my garden in August:
Japanese Anemone (anemone tomentosa robustissima);
Chartreuse green sedum from my friend (Angelina stonecrop?) ;
And, lespedeza. It is called Hagi in Japanese.
