Good Morning everyone!
I hope your week is going well.
I hope you are looking forward to the weekend.
I hope everyone in the USA had a fantastic Thanks Giving!
I have a bit of a confession today.
I had a bit of a self pity party.
I have them every so often
and this was due to a new condition.
If you don't want to read my waffle
just skip it to my pictures :-)
I had an MRI on Saturday and it aggravated my
neck and spine even more than normal.
I took my painkillers on Saturday, Sunday & Monday.
Unfortunately on Monday I had to go to my
My body wasn't happy about the stress
or on the being on my feet or sat down
in a cold room.
It was a good send off for my uncle
and lots of people attended.
It was nice seeing all my family even
though I didn't really feel myself.
Anyway by that evening the pain
had got so bad that it was making me feel sick.
I rested the next day but I had to come
to the realization that the problem
with the damaged root nerves in my spine
are a lot worse than I was willing to admit.
I had a good sit down with myself
and looked at what has been happening over
the last few months.
I have been fobbing off my symptoms with it's
just my peripheral neuropathy.
I am losing the sensation in my hands.
Everytime I touch something, including my clothes,
I have a burning pain.
The way I can describe it is when you get pins
and needles and you get that awful pain
not long before they are going, that's it.
After having a good talk with myself
I'm back on form.
I have to be very careful that I don't flare
my neck up more.
I ended up at the dr's and when she touched
the swollen part I nearly hit the roof.
It is probable that the nerve is damaged
so I'll not get back to where I was
but I'm already thinking of ways to cope
It's not going to stop me crafting.
I think I would go loopy if I didn't.
Anyway lets get onto a happier note.
I wasn't sure what I had shown you last
week so I did a couple of group shots.
I'm still making Christmas Decorations
as my mum has put in orders for some she wants.
