3 days and counting.....

Well I have nothing to show you at the moment.  I thought I would let you all know what is going on with me.  I have mentioned several times before that my focus and concentration has been very off.  Well it seems that it is more of a problem than I thought.  During a routine "Hey how are you doing" check up with my doctor.  (I have to have these appts every few months as I am a freak of nature when it comes to my body so he needs to see for himself how I am doing....seriously I even have 2 splines?)  Anyway you all also know (well if you didn't you do now) I take a Serotonin Re uptake Inhibitor for depression...yep I don't have enough of that either.  Well panic set in when he suggested that I stop taking it so we agreed that we will cut it in half AND now he has me on an ADD med.  Don't laugh!  I know you all thought I had this problem anyway but you would think at my age....oh well.  Supposedly it will take 10 days for this all to level out but I will tell you right now I am running out of things to clean!  A friend of mine said it is like taking a shot of whiskey and a red bull chaser.  If this keeps up I am running down to Alabama to help Juli organize her house and with how I feel I will still be back for supper!  I wanted everyone to know what is going on just in case you think I am ignoring you.  You all mean so much to me and have really helped me (whether you know it or not) through this.  I haven't been able to sit down long enough to get through more than 3 of my bloggy friends post at a time and even worse I haven't been able to bead for very long.   ARGH!  I am working on a finishing a challenge piece and I am able to focus much better. 

I know that there are much worse things going on with my other friends and believe me I am still sending hugs and blessing to all of them, but I didn't want anyone to be too concerned about my Wonky World!

Hugs and Love to all!


  1. Thanks for the update Kristen! Wishing you lots of feelings of wellness! <3

  2. I hope everything gets all evened out and sending you big hugs!

  3. When you finish yours, feel free to hope down here and organize my craft room! I made an attempt & then went onto something else, LOL. I'm sure you will feel much better soon with the new regimen and you'll be back to your beautiful beading before you know it!

  4. Kristen, you are welcome to come and sort out my workbench anytime...I could do with a little cleaning fairy ;-) Hang in there, my friend...the 10 days will be up before you know it and you'll be feeling like a million dollars!

    Hugs coming your way,

  5. Kristen,
    I am sure things will even out the meantime--Use that energy and bake me some brownies-- LOL!! You have my address!!! :)

  6. Hi Kristen, My husband was diagnosed w/ ADD at age almost 50! It was the best thing that could have happened for him (and for me) because it was a long overdue diagnosis. He's on the meds and all the "issues" went away and it was like he's a new man! Now I know immediately if he forgets to take the pills and send him off to get them. I hope it works that well for you!

  7. O K, we are ALL on somethin in MY house and I'm the one that passed it on to them from my mother. The meds are a gift horse, so just do what you can do before it evens out! Sure, you'll be focused but you won't be running on high octane anymore!
