ABOUT MY PERICARDITIS

The last week of September I was in the cardiac unit at my local hospital with something called pericarditis. It is an inflammation around the lining of my heart. It causes shortness of breath and chest pain. I was on oxygen and anti-inflammatory medication. I am Home now. I have to take it easy for a few weeks. It was scary but the worst of it is over

================================

My sweet dog Boo Boo---

In September my Pomeranian went to the Rainbow Bridge (to Heaven). His heart was enlarged and he lived a long life. I miss him dearly.

Favorite Crafts

  • making flowers, handmade cards, doing stamping, making Pocket Letters, and any little gifts for swaps.

  • making my own envelopes and mail art.

  • learning how to make mini albums

I dabble in some other crafts but for now I do mostly paper related things. I LOVE PAPER!

My favorite themes are BUTTERFLIES, DRAGONFLIES, GIRLY, LIGHTHOUSES, and LADYBUGS.

I love wildlife themes and flower things too.

Feel free to check my Amazon Wishlist for ideas. I added to it so people would see what items I like. You need not buy off the list.

I LOVE HAPPY MAIL!

Dislikes/Do not Send

Please do not send

  • anything related to smoking/drinking/politics

  • things with lots of loose glitter (bad for my lungs)

  • makeup and bath gels

    (Due to my Lupus skin issues I do not use these)

  • Candy or chocolates (I am an Insulin Dependent Type 2 Diabetic)

  • earrings as I have let my holes close due to constant infections

ALLERGIES AND ISSUES

Due to my medical issues and some severe allergies I must be careful about certain things.

I am very very allergic to wool

so if anyone makes something (knit or crochet) it cannot be made of wool or have wool fiber in it.

I am also extremely allergic to cat hair.

I do know that sometimes a stray hair may get in... As long as you make an effort to keep hairs to a minimum I am happy.

Life and all its Bumps

Having a chronic illness is stressful. Because I have Lupus, Type 2 Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Liver Disease and a few other issues I live with daily symptoms:

  • short term memory/concentration issues

  • falling easily and fragile bones

  • seizures and migraines

  • liver and kidney issues

  • nausea and vertigo

  • depression

Swap-bot is my way of feeling connected to the outside world and having a social outlet. I have made many new friends and enjoyed being creative.

Comment: Thank you for the nice pocket letter and the extras! I understand about blood sugars as I am a type 2 diabetic also. I got put back on insulin last year and I take 28 units at bedtime. Hope you feel better soon. I know how up and down blood sugars can affect your vision. We got 20.8" of snow.

I wish you a Merry Christmas!!

oblivionspin on Nov 28, 2015:

Oh, hello, Kay!
I have been meaning to get in touch and see how you were, just been a bit behind correspondence stuff. I have been working on my NaNoWriMo project a ton, as well as Thanksgiving prep this past week.
How have you been? Let me know when you have some spare time if you would like to do a private swap again, I do believe I have used up all the lovely address labels you sent me.
Take care,
Met
