Hi everyone, hope your all enjoying your summer. I have been wanting to get back to blogging earlier, but unfortunately I have been quite ill since I last posted. I ended up in the hospital for a few days enduring invasive tests and had to have surgery a week ago. Then when I thought things were going to get better, I started experiencing the same symptoms that took me to the hospital in the first place. No one was able to find out what was wrong with me and I have been so frustrated and scared. So the other day I started thinking maybe it was one of my new medications I have been taking and sure enough, once I started researching it, everything I had been experiencing was listed on several websites about one of my meds. I had even mentioned the possibility of my meds causing my problems to one of my E.R. doctors, but he just brushed me off and said maybe it was psychological. Unfortunately, this happens a lot to women, especially when they take medication for depression and anxiety which is what I was taking for about 5 weeks before I started experiencing horrible episodes including fainting, a seizure, horrible burning sensations in my body and fever and chills.Then when I read up on the side effects of stopping the medication cold turkey, I was terrified by what thousands of people had experienced. I am now trying to wean myself from this drug and am scared to death to start experiencing what other people have experienced with withdrawls. Think God that with my nursing background I was able to find out for myself what the problem was before I was on this medication for any longer. I am telling you all this because I don't want you to experience what I have over the last few weeks. If your doctor can't find out what's going on with you, research it yourself! Don't let unknown illness take over your life! I have been unable to enjoy any aspect of my life for the last month and have felt completely out of control! Please pray for me to get through this weaning process, I so need it!
I am trying to keep my mind and hands busy so I started cross stitching again. I monogrammed the vintage grain sack above with my initial. I love how it turned out!
Hope to talk with you all soon!
