rambling, it's what i'm good at...

First of all, Thank you.

Thank you for your kind words and your concern and caring regarding my last post. It means so very much and I don't know that I have adequate words to tell you how it makes me feel.  So, Thank You.

The temperatures have dropped here and it has been so very cold.  I ran out of kindling for the fire so haven't had one and am reluctant to turn on the heat.  Yesterday I went to mum's to watch the football game and we went into the woods behind her place and collected a sack full of kindling.  Now I'm ready for another fire.  

I have done much of nothing the last several days.  Mostly re-reading books I've read many times.  A tiny bit of knitting. But mostly sleeping and trying to stay warm.

This morning, while watering the houseplants, I discovered that my "Christmas" cactus is blooming.  I had moved it into the studio a few weeks ago and don't remember seeing any blooms at all.  So pretty.
I've spent a little bit of time in the studio, but haven't made a lot of progress.  I'm not sure how I feel about yellow girl here.  I may end up scrapping it and starting over.  Or maybe just set it aside and start with a fresh slate.
Last week was a check-in appointment with my Neurologist.  He changed my meds again and told me if these didn't help I should contact a couple of other places to see if they had any trials going on that I could join.  The thought of doing that terrifies me.  I know that taking any med is basically an experiment because of how differently each person reacts.  But taking something that they don't even know what the side effects could be?  I think I'd rather live with the pain.  

I started the new meds last Wednesday.  No changes so far.  He did say there are a couple of new injection medications for issues like mine but they won't be on the market for another 1-2 years.  Sometimes I wonder why I even bother to see a doctor.

Enough about that.  

I'm going to log off now and play catch-up on my blog reading.  Then maybe some knitting.  I hope you are all well and having a good week.

thanks for stopping by!
love & blessings

I can feel your pain. And my dear, you are NOT alone. You may feel that way, but all you have to do is turn on your computer and let us share it. I sincerely hope the new meds work and your pain subsides. Blessings going your way, dear.

I always like a real fire better than artuficial heat!

I hope the new medicine can help!

Yes, please do share your burdens with all your friends here on the internet. Sometimes that is easier than sharing with those in our physical lives. I really hope you are able to find some meds that work for you. I am sending good, warm and healing thoughts your way!
