Health update sort of and just a howdy.
My camera has died, so I only have old photos from this blog to post, and whatever I can scan if it fits on the printer plate. Thankfully, most of my art is small, so I will be able to scan it. Have to save up for a camera-but I can wait on that. Above is some knitting that I started a few (gulp) years ago-the shawl is much longer now. I don't have this beautiful plant now-it got too big for being inside, and didn't come up again after I transplanted it outside. I do have to buy another one-I LOVE this color-especially with the color of the shawl.
I think my health issues have gotten better. I must say I have never seen so many doctors in my life. And I have never been quite so discouraged about my health or getting real help for it.
Why do doctors argue with you when you tell them how a medicine affects you? Like you don't know your body-but they do??
Anyway-I finally feel good enough to do some artwork, and I am able to sleep fairly well-even though it's broken up into segments of hours-not an all night sleep.
For some reason, having hives and red swelling arms depressed me more than not feeling well...and right now I have no itching and no hives. I am very thankful. And yes-it seems like a small thing compared to lots of things-but it took over my life-mostly because it came from nowhere. Was it stress?
Something I was eating? A reaction to the infections I also had? No one can tell me. And I refuse to take another steroid. They made me feel terrible-they did the job of getting rid of my hives and itching-oh yes-but I felt like I was extremely sick as well.
So what am I doing? For one thing-taking probiotics. Back to eating yoghurt, which I thought I might be allergic to. I'm not. But the pill form of probiotics is something I needed along with yoghurt.
I so admire Nicole and I'll try to make a link to her blog here. (it's beadwright.blogspot.com) She figured out what to take to help her with some serious health problems. I think that is amazing.
And I admire people who have life-long issues and can smile and make the very best of it.
I want to be like that.
