Sometimes life has a way of getting in the way of what we really want to be doing, and thats certainly been the case for the first quarter of this year! By christmas I was in so exhuasted from the chronic pain I'd been experiencing from what was put down my "arthritis" I was ready to cut off my arms and legs just to get relief. But rather than do this I went back to my old doctor for a second opinion and this lead to 2 months of exhaustive investigations which finally resulted in a diagnosis of FMS, for which there is no cure, just a long haul of treatment protocols ahead. After almost a month now on immunosuppressants I can say the pain is being managed reasonably well and I've regained the energy I was so lacking for so long. Life is indeed good again and its been reflected in a renewed motivation for scrapbooking. Lesley from Nutkintailz Designs also has been on sabbatical while she sorted out issues in her life but is back designing so you will be seeing a lot of kits here again. But for now here's a couple a layouts inspired by the journey ahead, and to serve as reminders when my spirits flag.
