11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: I Have a Disease Round 4 (sign up closed send out 10/12/09) on: September 28, 2009 09:50:49 PM

thats the worst part of depression to me - how you might want to get better and do things to feel better but when it comes down to it, you also don't really want to put forth the effort and you want to stay depressed.  thats the hardest for me - that security of depression.

I don't think I realized that I feel exactly that way when I'm depressed until I read that.  Thanks for putting it into words.  And I don't think anyone would understand unless they have been through it themselves.

Ugh, yeah that's how I feel, too. It's so so so good to hear that put into words.

So, I came here in a panic thinking that the sendout date was October 1st and I was afraid I'd have to rush through crafting this weekend and sendout a little late. But so glad I have another week at least before I need to panic for real. My fibro fog has been heavy lately, I am honestly a bit of a mess. I get overwhelmed and paranoid about things that normally wouldn't phase me at all and have had a few total breakdowns over little things (and I have a week before such behavior is expected, if you catch my drift) and each time it gets harder for me to pull myself out of it er, back into it? I would feel so bad if I sent out late for this swap, let's hope I can get my act together! Hugs to you all!

Oh you guys it breaks my heart to hear all that is going on with your lives. But, I am having a hard time emotionally lately since I am having a hard time finding health care folks who understand what I am going through and it is really good to know that there are people who not only know what it's like to be in pain all the time and not have energy and how bad that can be but who are way craftier than me even with more health problems than me. Gives me a little hope that I will be as awesome as you all someday. Seriously, babalina? Riding a bike with impaired vision? You are superwoman! I lost my central vision for a few weeks for a still undetermined reason and I didn't even trust myself with walking. And it got better on its own so I didn't have to take meds and I avoided that kind of craziness.

I finished only one thing for the swap so far but it is one of the best things I have made with [that particular technique] before so I feel pretty good about swap things. I just wish I could sit for longer periods of time so I could work on the other things, after class my core muscles are just shot. Even with all my "natural cushioning" my hips ache like nothing else. Wink

This is wonderful! I love all the thought you put into this. That is what makes a dress simple but not plain and boring.

I'm sorry to hear about your grandfather's brother, pseudo_six. My grandfather's brother died last week, it was really hard because he was my dad's last uncle on his dad's side (wow that makes no sense but whatever). I was never very close to him, but he was very close to my dad, especially after my grandfather died, so I was so sad for my dad.

Hugs to everyone feeling bad. I have been in a lot of pain this week and am barely getting by, but am glad that I am getting by at all, considering how bad I feel. And I am optimistic things will get better because I finally found a new physical therapist that seems to know how to treat someone with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.

Despite all this (or maybe because I've been in bed so much) I have almost completed my most intensive project (or at least I hope) for bronzfrog!

Oh, and yay missprissypirate! My brother had sinus surgery, not sure if that's what you are having, and his asthma and chronic sinus infections got tons better. He hardly has either anymore.
