Hey everyone. It looks like we have a couple new faces since I've been on last. I miss you all, but am so sick it's hard to keep up with much of anything. My health has continued to fail and now I'm mostly homebound and not able to do much at home either.
But I saw my specialist back east a couple weeks ago and she has a couple ideas of what is making me so much sicker and... they are things with treatments! I'm waiting for my insurance back here at home to put everything through that the out-of-system doctor requested, but I'm hopeful that eventually she can get me functioning a little better.
But when I was back east I was able to spend a little time with my boyfriend Andy. We were both pretty sick, but we sat out on his family's pier a lot and chatted while we watched the river and birds.
In the last few months I've been able to do some crafting from my recliner. My mental fatigue rules out things like writing, but I've been crocheting and recently rediscovered my childhood love of coloring.
I've been coloring ornate designs and making them into greeting cards, and just made a giraffe wall hanging artwork thing for a friend. I can't draw or paint, but I've had fun with mandala coloring pages or mixing clip art bits on PhotoShop.
Leah, the job schedule sounds exhausting. I know how hard it would be to switch to a different job, though. I hope you can figure something out.
Becky, are you feeling any better?
Pup, the landlord situation seems sticky and frustrating. Hope you can figure out how to deal with him without going crazy (more crazy?) or getting evicted.
Kip, welcome to the group. Sounds like we are neighbors!
Jay, I liked your song lyrics. Cool.
Toni, what is your book about? Congrats on getting an agent! I was starting that process two years ago and then got too ill to finish it, but hope to someday.
Shann, do you think your neighbor moved away because he felt not safe there? Were you freaked out after the stabbing? I think it would make me nervous to know someone was out to get my neighbor.
