quick update

I feel like I owe it to my wonderful readers to post an update since things have been so quiet around here. I am still struggling to get back up on the proverbial horse.  Still adjusting to a medication that makes me want to sleep all the time, gives me a stomach ache 24/7 and has caused me to lose a bunch of weight which I really can't afford to lose.
For the first time in my life I have hit a creative dry spell (at least I hope that is all it is).  I am struggling just to get out of bed in the morning.  I go back to the doctors tomorrow so hopefully we can address some of these issues. 
The little amount of energy I can muster goes 100% to caring for my beautiful baby and wonderful husband.
Please bear with me tatting friends as I am trying my best to get through this "valley of shadows".

Let's hope the doctors can figure out how to help you with this. It doesn't sound good at all. Will keep you in my prayers and thoughts for you to get better. I'm sure once you feel better the creative juices will start flowing again. Keep loving on the baby, a continual source of joy.

Blessings and prayers for a better outlook, and for your docs to get you some help.

I think of you often and worry about how you are doing.

Please remember that we are all rooting for you, and if you need to reach out on down days, we are here for you.

You have my sympathy as I am dealing with wanting to sleep all the time myself. Not caused by medication ... it's a mystery. The doctor just ordered a boatload of blood tests & hopefully we can get to the bottom of this. What little energy you have should definitely be shared with your baby & husband at this time. You will be in my prayers.

Will keep you in my prayers...it is hard to find the energy/will to create when you are that tired, been there, still have days like that.

Things will turn around at some point. I've always believed that the best thing to do is just relax into how you are at the moment. Things will change for the better - they always do. The hard part is being patient enough to wait for this!! Be kind to yourself and try to enjoy the small things in each day. Best wishes to you and your family.

I hope the doctor can help you and get up back on your feet, I am sure this is just a dry spell and when you feel better your mojo will spring into action. Take care and don't worry it will get better

Good use of what energy you do have, m'dear. Take care of yourself and your family and see if the doctors can take care of getting the medication balanced. Sleep as much as you need -- perhaps you'll have a really, really creative dream. :)

Thinking of you and sending lots of creative thoughts.

Sometimes being creative can bring on a dry spell, or a quiet spell. I hope the MDs can re mix your meds to allow the beauty within you to sparkle thru. Sometimes when I am doing too much, my mind keeps whispering "just start" and no matter what, I can pick up anything and get a rhythm going to ease those chaotic times. Keeping you and your challenge in my thoughts + I cannot help thinking you are on the right track.
