Happy Imbolc, Steem fam! Hope you are doing well. Today it is a gorgeous day in Denver, which means the Cailleach is gathering her firewood and winter is going to make a comeback. Don't believe me?
68 degrees to negative 1 degree fahrenheit in the span of four days. Denver weather has been on drugs looooooooong before we legalized anything. ;)
The other day I made a three-legged Brighid's cross for Imbolc out of dead leaves off my dragon trees:
Rushes don't grow here and I thought it was more meaningful to make it out of plants I know, anyway. :)
In other news, I am participating in a study that is working to make a diagnostic to be able to diagnose endometriosis via people's menstrual blood - even before symptom onset! That would be amazing, because lemme tell ya - years of suffering and being blown off and told "that's normal" and "take a Midol" when I was on 2400 mg of iburprofen at a time and still unable to stand ...yeah, that sucks. If it can help folx in the future to get help sooner, I am all for it. Info here: https://themighty.com/2020/01/rose-study-endometriosis-diagnostic-test/
They already are seeing helpful things that should work, they just need more samples. So hooray! I hope this is an accepted diagnostic tool soon.
The kitties would like to say happy Caturday!
And that's about it in Phe land. What have y'all been up to?
