Wow -- this has been a rough couple of months. O.K. I'm really not one to talk about my health issues but since I revealed I have Scleroderma and Fibromyalgia and these DO play a part in my attempts at living a creative life (the whole point of this blog), well...I guess I should discuss this once in awhile.
So, I had a bad sinus infection and bronchitis in November... another cold (that lasted about 4 weeks) in January...a severe case of stomach flu in February... and yet another cold in March. Being on immune-suppressing pain medicine definitely has its downside! (Well, more on that later...)
Even with all of that, I have STILL been forging on and working on something creative every day! No small feat in itself: when I'm on an antibiotic I can't take my main pain medicine (they basically cancel each other out). I don't really notice anything different if I'm off it for only a week but the longer I'm off it the more pain I feel. That definitely makes it difficult to be creative...and more difficult to even WANT to do anything remotely creative. (I'm trying my best -- creating things is the only thing that saves me some days. That, and my fuzzy kitties... :-)
More soon. Just wanted to mention why I haven't been around much lately...
