I have so much to catch up with. My creations have gone untouched. The house work has gone undone. I have been a bit under the weather so to speak. I went in for a normal visit with my doctor right before my last post. While there he told me he had been doing some research on a medication & thought I would benefit from it more than the medication I have been on. I was to try it for a month & see how things went. I started the medication & quickly became lightheaded & sick to my stomach with a headache. These were considered normal side effects. Tiredness over took me & I slept the most part of three days only to wake for the next dose. I realized it was getting hard to swallow & I had trouble breathing when not being propped up on a pile of pillows. I called the doctors office only to hear the recording that he was out. I stopped taking the medication. By this time I realized my face was swollen also & my vision & hearing were not so good. The next day I called the doctors office again. I was told I had an allergic reaction to the medication & it was good I had stopped taking it. Over the years I have found I am allergic to bees & five medications. Other than being really weak the other side effects have left. I have been told it will take a few days to make sure all the medication is out of my system before starting my normal medication again. I have another doctors appointment on Wednesday then I hope to be back to my normal. I only have two weeks to have some spring creations ready for one of the shops open house. I have seeds to get planted & lots of dust bunnies to vacuum up.

Blessings Til Next Time!


  1. Lara, So sorry to hear of your difficulties. I have allergy problems, it's terrible. Hope you feel better quickly and get caught up soon!

    1. Hoping you are feeling better soon! I am only slightly allergic to a few things but when I do get reactions, it's not fun! Take it easy and don't overdo it :)

      hugs, Trish

  2. Goodness sakes Lara! So glad you stopped taking that medicine when you did or it could have been worse! Be careful and don't over do it trying to get everything caught up or you will just knock yourself down again. Take it easy, the dust bunnies will wait for you, unfortunately lol!

    Hope you have a better week~

  3. I wish you the best of luck and good health.
    Take care and get well soon.

  4. What a scare. Glad you are better now. Take care and thank you for your prayers.

  5. So sorry to hear about your allergic reaction! I hope you are feeling much better. Take the time to rest and recover. Have a great week!


  6. Oh no...what a scare that would be..hopefully the doctor will give you some good news. Take care, Janice

  7. Oh how scary. It was like it was putting you in a coma and you had no idea how sick you were. I am glad you caught it. Hopefully you start feeling better so soon. -Steph-

  8. Not good --- get some rest for your body to heal. Medications can indeed be scary. Be sure to keep a journal of your medications, which ones have a good effect and which ones are bad for you. Take care of yourself!


  9. Lara~ I am very sensitive to meds and had one really bad reaction years back~ I feel for you~ I still get scared taking anything, I am shaky on all meds~
    Wishing you better~

  10. So glad that you stopped the medicine when you did, Lara.. Glad to hear that you are starting to feel a bit better, take is easy and don't over-do... Hugs, Traci

  11. Oh my goodness Lara. It's good you knew to stop taking the pills. I'm always a little leery of doctors orders. They're only human just like us, but we're suppose to trust them with our lives.
    I hope you get better quick sweetie.

  12. How scary Lara!!!! I'm so glad you decided to stop the medication on your own. That could have been horrible.
