Quick update

I'm going to do a quick post with no pictures just to let you know that I am still here! I still have no energy, and have been getting no better. I am going to the doc this week to have him check for iron deficiency. Craving ice, insomnia, extreme fatigue and muscle cramps add up to something....
I have been doing a little, but slowly. I did some dyeing and will try to post pics tomorrow or the next day. Will be putting some floss in the shop too if I can get my act together. I have lots of ideas churning in my mind for the projects in the works so stay tuned for interesting things to come!
~to better days!

  1. Does France have the deer ticks that carry Lymes Disease ? Your symptoms sound familiar. Just a thought. Also check out Epsteins Barr Syndrome. Your fatigue and muscle aches are red flags for these. ...hope you feel better.

  2. Thanks Janet,actually I suffer from muscle aches as a constant, that along with joint pain. My doc always called it inflammatory joint disease. This is different though, It's CRAMPS in my feet and legs that are quite frequent. The ice craving is a big pointer to iron deficiency. I had it once before when I was pregnant. THe symptoms of anemia are
    * Easy fatigue and loss of energy
    * Unusually rapid heart beat, particularly with exercise
    * Shortness of breath and headache, particularly with exercise
    * Difficulty concentrating
    * Dizziness
    * Pale skin
    * Leg cramps
    * Insomnia
    * Hunger for strange substances such as paper, ice, or dirt
    the heart beat I'm not really noticing...and I've always been pale LOL
