Sick of being poked & prodded...

by doctors recently. After suffering with joint pain especially in my knees since childhood I finally caved and went to the doctors last month. My parents took me numerous times as a child and teen because of pain in my knees and all they ever said was it was growing pains. Well after being prodded and poked by the doc he refered me to a consultant and they have finally diagnosed me as having fibromyalga.

I'm kind of glad I can put a name to it now but not so happy that my treatment consists of anti-depressants, although having said that I must admit the pain has been much better the last week or so since starting them.

This plus the fact I am type 2 diabetic, I have hypertension, under active thyroid and PCOS makes me feel like I'm falling to pieces just lately.

I'm hoping I'll get some energy back soon and feel more like getting involved in more challenges and maybe do more with this blog, just sick of feeling ill all the time.

Anyhoo, sorry for the whiney post, I don't like moaning about my illnesses as there are lots of people who are worse off than me, so to cheer things up a bit I'll let you in to a bit of good news too :)

My baby sister Katy is getting arried next year, now Katy is 21 years younger than me and is more like a daughter to me than a sister. Her fiance is a wonderful guy and I'm so thrilled for them. She asked me to be matron of honour and also to make her wedding stationery, of course I couldn't refuse lol! I don't know who is more excited, Katy or me lol! She is having a gothic themed wedding and the colours are black and red, how fab is that.

Anyway, that's about it for today, I'll have a few odds and ends to post in the next couple of days when I finally get my camera set up lol!

Until next time,
Happy Crafting
