A drug shortage...more aftigue...but a good doctor...listens

I spent this morning with my specialist for Lupus and other predicaments...I now have a diagnosis of Fybromyalia...Spelling??? I have been without my methotrexate infusions for about a month and yes I do feel a difference. The fatigue is my constant companion but the lab works may disclose how my body is processing these changes without a combination of medications. I am not going to complain...this is my life and I am still HERE!!!! I found myself being unable to really focus after the morning and the skies were gray so I came home and celebrated Tea for Tuesdays with a bright Lemon herb tea ...fresh...soothing ...and calming. Ken brought home a big Chipotle's Chicken Burrito...good old fashioned honest comfort foods!! I have been on line to research Jerry's Artarama...and they answered some of my questions in one days time!!! Bea asked me if I was dyeing cottons?? yes..but I am looking into adding a variety of fabrics fused on top to add interest and dimension with some textures. I am tired now so I am going to bed ...and pray for a good night's sleep. Thank you all for listening...tomorrow is a new day!!! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

p.s. Lupus my wolf companion...


  1. I never hear you complain. Good luck with your health issues. Sleep well.

  2. This project coming up is huge. I am glad you are having some people come help you with parts of it. I woke up this morning thinking about how you could make some big fat brushes like the artists had that was making her mark on the fabric. Hmmmmmmm, I saw myself wandering around the prairie cutting stems of tall grasses, bunching them together into thick bunches. See, you have to do the real planning and I get to just have fun thinking about things. :)Bea

  3. You are amazingly resilient Mary Helen, I am always in awe of how you keep going no matter what health issues are in your way, you just brush them aside and smile. xox Corrine
