A Bit Discouraged...

by the way my eyes, as they're healing, are not working well together, not focusing, and I find myself sneaking DH's reading glasses for close-up stuff. Distance is much better than it was before... no complaints there, though my astigmatism is still there, which the eye doc told me in advance that he couldn't correct with the lenses he put in - in place of the cataracts. I find myself holding things out at arm's length to see. On top of that, I'm feeling not so well because I took it upon myself to dump a few pills I felt were unnecessary, and I'm feeling I'm going to dump the doc as well. Not my internist nor my rheumatologist for lupus/polymalgia rheumatica..... OK, it's a shrink I'm wantin' to dump, and I'm pretty much forced to see him for my anxiety/depression meds. I'm going to see if my internist will take over those meds. I'm so in hopes he will. He's so good, and I love him to pieces....definitely not a pill pusher like the shrink is, in my opinion. Anyway, I'm feeling pretty punk. I'm sure that in a few days, this feeling will be gone, and I'll be my usual wonderful self.... whatever, LOL!

Thought you might enjoy a few pix of the things I've bought from my LNS here in town. They've had two sales since after Christmas: the After Christmas Sale (no duh) and the Super Bowl Sunday Sale. I got more great Christmas bargains of which I don't have pix yet, but here a few pix to entertain. The completed and framed Waxing Moon piece was on their ridiculously cheap sale table, which I got for $10. Couldln't turn it down. The frame alone is worth that, and I loved it. It's beautifully done. Pictured with it are a few lone fibers I needed.

The UK magazine was bought when I was at Border's the day of my 2nd cataract removal, and the JCS was in my mailbox just the other day.

A Santa Claus I fell in love with, 3 Country Cottage charts I knocked off my wish list. Also threads I needed for the charts here, and fabric for two of the charts. I already had the fabric for the 3rd chart. My next post will show some things I've done lately, one in finished form, one not, and progress on my two current WIP's.

Oooh, great stashing. Love Beach Houses, it reminds me of my grandparents cottage where I spent quite a few summers. Sorry that you're still having problems. I'll keep my fingers crossed your one doctor will oversee your meds so you don't need to go back to the other. Having one doctor do that may also help to prevent adverse interactions among your various meds.
