An Early Bloomer

Posted by Carol (Leamington, Canada) on 11 October 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Hello everyone, so sorry I haven't been able to participate. I am in a painful state at the moment and working with the doctors to find a medication that will give me relief. The small blood vessels in my feet are constricted and there's no cure. I have been putting off the idea of taking pills for a long time now but it's at the point where I need some help. Hopefully I will get some relief somewhere down the road. I would like to come back but I don't know when that will be. Meanwhile, I wish everyone well... take care!

@Ruthiebear: Hi Ruthie, it's been awhile since I've been to visit animus3.... I have my good days and bad! The doctors have me on Lyrica now and it seems to make a big difference in that I can tolerate the pain much better... although they do make me foggy & groggy..... it is something that I will have to get used to, so they tell me! :) I can't seem to find the motivation to come back to my blog.. but then that could change, I suppose. Anyway, thank you so much Ruthie, I miss you... I will try to get motivated with the idea of returning, time will tell! ♥

@Ruthiebear: Hi Ruthie.... miss you too! I had a reaction to the prescription so I am back to where I started. I am managing though, not to worry... just trying to get through the holidays right now, things are so hectic! Merry Christmas to you and yours dear Ruthie, wishing you health, love & happiness in 2014. Thank you for thinking of me, take care! xo

Dear Carol ... I was so happy to see a msg saying you were following my blog again. Now coming too yours I see that you can't take the Lyrica. I'm guessing this is for neuropothy which I have also on my left foot. Are you diabetic? I am so far am on medication.
This is getting long enough but know I am pleased to hear from you. ♡

@Judy aka L@dybug: Hi Judy.... I haven't been here for so long I forgot how to get around and accidently clicked the add button.... I just popped over to see what everyone was up to! I don't have diabetes but both of my feet have constricted blood vessels for whatever reason and are painful, some days are worse than others. I am managing although some nights I don't get too much zzzz's I make up for it during the day... I can't take pills, they turn me into a zombie and I can't function at all, there are too many things I have to do! :) Plus, my computer crashed and I am just now setting up my new laptop! It's been a long, hard winter.... I am hoping to return soon. Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate! I hope all is well with you & hubby. ♡
