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!
