On overdue return...

Hi! Would you believe it was me?

I've been gone for a while, a long while and I have missed the blogging world. I know I've missed quite in these past few months.

I was going to return earlier, but my health took a strange turn. I went into hospital mid December time and wasn't properly diagnosed with anything. My body was involuntarily twisting and turning a little like being shocked or violently shaken by someone...only thing is, is that I was conscious so they ruled it out as being seizures. They also ruled out diabetes, epilepsy and any virus or infection. Eventually I was referred to and seen by the neurologist, he asked me a few questions and I went to have and ECG done. I was finally diagnosed with having an anxiety disorder.

I get the occasional panic attack as result and it can take a while for me to calm down, its strange not being in full control anymore they can strike at any time without warning. I'm slowly getting used to it, knowing my limits and such.
I've been put on medication which I need to take every day for the next 6 months. It's supposed to help with the shaking and migraines. After that pains started in my abdomen, they ruled out any infections or appendicitis and gave me some tablets which I'm not entirely sure are helping as the pain is still there. As well as all that I discovered I had a perforated ear drum and was given ear drops, which smell so awful I don't fully use them as I should.

Work has been more stressful as business seems to be booming and it's still only us small few in the office. We've had quite a few meetings to discuss our job roles and how they may be changing in the upcoming months. There were interviews before I left to go on holiday so I guess I'll have to wait and see how things develop.

I haven't really been sewing at all. Most evenings have been spent either watching TV or going to bed early as I've been to tired to do anything else. As I've been on holiday I'm going through the process of a spring clean...though it's been snowing quite a bit here recently, we had some hail today. My sewing things will be sorted and I may start putting together some packs of scraps and sewing accessories, as I probably have far more than I'll use of threads and random materials.

I'll be back to blogging eventually, most likely the weekends. I've really missed sewing and writing away. I have a new camera too which I'll pull out of the box and start testing out. As well as a new quilt that has kept me warm through these cold 'Spring' nights.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed to find out what I've been up to. I have appreciated your concern. *Big Hugs*

Well I best be off....dinner will be here soon.

I be's Cheraldine!  =D
