I feel a reluctance to ‘let go’ of winter and leap forward into spring. Usually The SC loves the transition to spring with its unfolding displays of crocuses, daffodils, and tulips in quick and breathtaking succession. This year I want time to stand still so as not to witness each small loss as the days pass. A new symptom, a small functional change, anything that points towards Nelson’s disease progression. So instead of eagerly jumping into spring colors today, I chose the color blue to mirror my mood. At the last minute, I impulsively added a polka dot scarf to the mix to indicate that the change of seasons is here and it’s truly not within my control.
