Women's woes!!!

Hello all

I hope you are all well. Thank you so much for being so supportive after my last post. I am happy I have something to report....I hope you don't mind what I'm going to say...I think most of you are women and may actually relate to what I'm going to say. After becoming extremely poorly again and because it's so up and down I returned to the doctor. All blood tests came back ok....as you all know I have fibromyalgia but what has being going on seemed different. I know how the fibro affects me and know how a flare up affects me but the pain I've been suffering has been different and how I've been feeling has been different...the pain in one of my legs has been horrific (so much so I could lop it off!) and I've felt like I have permanent flu. Anyway I had a think about what has changed over the the last year. First off I lost my dad and things have been quite stressful so I made allowances for that. Then I realised I came off HRT. I did it slowly but about six months ago I finished it completely. I thought about why I started taking HRT in the first place and realised it was coz I felt so blinking awful at the time....very ill like I've been feeling now!!! Anyway after having a long talk with my doctor I have restarted the HRT. We discussed the risks etc but after the way I've felt we decided it's a case of weighing up the pros and cons and I couldn't carry on the way I have. Anyway I can not believe that after only one week back on the HRT I feel so different....the hot flushes have stopped again, the night sweats have abated and I'm feeling more like me again. I am hoping that it has done the trick. I have everything crossed that that was the problem and I won't be on here whinging about feeling so rotten and that I can get back to my crafting. 

Ok folks after all that rambling I do have a card for you. At the moment I am trying to mix in using kits I have, with crafting using my stamps etc. This card was made using Hobby house components. I just adore the images on the toppers in these kits. They are lovely kits that have card blanks, card stock, flowers, ribbon, pearl string etc all included so the colour tones are perfect. I did use a Sue Wilson die to cut the lacy edge and an SB Lacey circle die for the sentiment. The coloured pearls are also from the Hobbyhouse. Everything adds up to a pretty card. 


Right that's me off....thank you again all of you for your support....Lea X
