My package to pseudo pix should arrive soon hopefully... It's in her country, and it's sorted so hopefully it'll be delivered today or tomorrow. *bounces up and down*

I got the flu shot today so my shoulder is a bit sore. Doesn't stop me from knitting Wink

I love the idea of this swap, but I don't have any disease (well - only diagnosed PMS, really, which the Dr has now advised me to combat by taking a BC pill for 3 months at a time so I only have PMS 4 weeks a year Tongue) but my best friend has just been diagnosed with HMS (the Dr kept telling her it was just RSI and that it would go away soon... yeah :/) and I keep thinking of things that I could get/make her to make life easier (she basically can't use her hands - not even to read anymore - without being in excrutiating pain) like electronic tin openers, double-handled mugs and wrist warmers to cover her unsightly tubigrips... and it's a little fun.

If there's another round - do you think I could join in return for goodies for my friend?

Absolutely! One of our swappers this round joined in behalf of her mom, and I think that's a great idea!

Oh joy!

I just got my package from Annchen and wow. I have never in my life gotten such a wonderful and utterly cozy package! So much yumminess! Totally cute and funny crafted stuff and beautiful materials for me to work with.

Unfortunately my boyfriend went on a 2 weeks study trip yesterday and he brought the camera. I am hoping to be well enough to go to school where I can borrow one Smiley Hopefully tomorrow! ...I'm home with a stupid cough.

However I am going to be SOOOOO cozy all day....I'm trying to keep my hands of the cookies cos they just seems to fly into my mouth Shocked (psst I need the recipe!)

*HUGS! Annchen*

I received today. Thank you so much Craft the World. I love everything and the Hello Kitty and other Sanrio stuff cheered me up right away. I'll post pictures later when my spouse gets home so he can help me (my Windows computer is dead, so I need picture help with either the Mac or the Unix computer).

i have and its AWFUL.  whats more, i just decided to stop taking it (i really hated that mellow feeling!) and I didnt know at the time that you really cant do that, so I just quit cold turkey.  It was really bad.  I had the nausea, vomiting, a little dizziness, and MAJOR irritability, although I know it can also cause bad headaches.

I honestly couldnt tell you what I did to get through it - at first I seriously thought I was just sick with a virus or something and finally with my irritability my husband suggested I look it up online and there was everything I was struggling with in all its glory!

What symptoms do you have and/or what's giving you the most trouble?

Swapping up a storm here!  Totally open to personal swaps - I am always in need of awesome stuff Wink

oh geez, let's see.. i have migraines (non-stop ones, instead of 1 every few days), vomiting, extreme fatigue, TERRIBLE muscle twitches, i'm super irritable, really dizzy, and these damn things that are called brain zaps that are absolute hell.

i've read that there can be a ton of heart pain too but luckily i haven't experienced that yet.

i was on the highest dose possible (120mg) so getting me off it is even harder, i've been tapering down and been okay until i just got to 60, i'm supposed to go down to 30 in a few days and i'm so scared things are just going to get worse!
