so i've been on a seizure medicine since i was 16, and i've always had
to have the real drug and not the generic, well good thing i checked my
medicine bottle to note it had been changed to generic. And at the
pharmacy it was on file that I don't get generic. But am fortunate that
there isn't a lot of difference in the generic to this. So, always be
your own advocate with your medicine, your medical files etc. After all it's your body.
I felt compelled to post about this so please excuse the rambling. I have all types of friends and I love that. I absolutely REFUSE to be a certain way to "fit in" or to change who I am to gain sales etc. I am self taught in everything I create. I don't have big bucks for big craft fair booths would like to try a craft fair someday though because I bet they are fun. Selling has been a way to have a sense of purpose again being stuck at home and not being able to drive or have a job. (I have many non visible illnesses) Yes I do have a sellers permit. And yes many times I take a loss to keep my prices reasonable. I absolutely LOVE getting to know new creative people online and local, and Love getting to know my customers.
I put a lot of love and hard work into everything I create. I refuse to change for trendy or what that person over there is selling and selling a lot of.
And please also know that i appreciate every single comment and words of encouragement. You have know idea what that means.
I also love old style, vintage, repurposed works of art
I appreciate maners and values and respect.
I am me and thank you for support and encouragement.
With all that I deal with health wise i take comfort in being able to sew craft and bead. It helps me take my mind off my pain and other issues. The internet has helped me connect with other great crafters sewers beaders quilters who inspire and encourage me. It is a blessing in my life that I am so grateful for.
I also like to connect with others who may suffer from some of the same health issues I do. Many
of my health issues didn't start until after my cancer/chemo.
I had hodgkin's lymphoma stage 4a
I was given a 50% survival rating and went through grueling chemo. I became
toxic to one of the drugs so had to go longer on the 3 that were left. (ABVD)
I support invisible illness awareness and hope that what I deal with
can somehow help others.
Complex partial seizure disorder with myoclonus
RSD-Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
Over Active Bladder
Post inflamatory pulmonary fibrosis (50-60 lung capacity with bad asthma and copd "like" symptoms)
lower back pain with hip and groin pain hip bursitis
Being stuck at home and not being able to drive
takes it's toll. However having the outlet I have for crafting sewing and beading
helps in ways you can't imagine.
I was a musician prior to cancer I played Clarinet and sax and keyboard
and I composed classical music. Playing Jazz was my favorite.
I miss it something awful.
Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog
and I look forward to sharing more projects with you
