Sorry everyone

Apologies for being MIA again, I took very seriously ill and had to be taken into hospital with serious symptoms.  However, there is an extremely long story attached of which I do not want to go into, but suffice to say, I am at home waiting on an emergency appointment to see the neurologist for various tests to be carried out to discover what has happened to me.
I am unable to walk, my vision is badly affected, I have constant dizziness, I am sick all the time, the headaches I have are excrutiating, the pain that I have in my legs are too painful to describe.

At the moment I am unable to do any sort of crafting, but I hope that I will be able at some point in the future to come back and fill my blog with what I used to love the most.  For the time being, I am afraid my pages are not going to have much on them as I cannot see very well when I am typing as my eyes are not doing too well, so I will sign off for now and I hope to be able to sign back on very soon and speak to you all again soon.

I hope that you all keep crafting away and I hope to be able to keep trying to look on your pages as often as I can.

hoping and praying that your docs find the answers to your issues. i know how it feels to not have answers to physical issues.

Hello everyone, I just thought I would give a more positive post, nearly four years later. I am practically a ‘new’ person (well not really), but I am certainly better than I was. I have ditched the constant negative attitude and replaced it with a much more positive one. I very seldom have to use my crutches, unless I am going for a longer walk. I have ditched all of my ( or most of) medication, especially the morphine. I was doing things which were completely outwith ME! I have taken up my cardmaking again, although I haven’t got round to posting regularly, this is something which I am going to have to rectify.
Thank you all for your kind wishes and messages as it really meant so much to me to read them all.
I hope to be back in blogland again very soon, and having a look at all of your great blogs and get some much needed inspiration.

My slight problem will be remembering everything I have to do on my blog. lol

Love and hugs. Jen xxxxx

sunshine said...

did they ever find out what the issue was? i know of someone who has some of the same symptoms and maybe your info would help when she goes to the docs.
thank you!

i'm happy to hear that you are doing better but yet 4 years later there is still a struggle. will continue to pray for your recovery.

Hi Sunshine,

They discovered that I had taken a ‘quick’ progression which was my symptoms had increased over a short period of time. I still have a really horrid symptom which has still not been sorted, despite being in for an operation/procedure to try to find out what was going on. I have one other thing left to try which will be happening on 16th April, so fingers crossed for this. lol
If you would like to PM me, I can go into further detail about what has really been going on, but I really don’t want to go into detail on my blog. Sorry about this.
Love Jen xx

sunshine said...
