Still Kicking =)

Hey gals and guys! I just wanted to let y'all know that I am doing ok. My new meds are MUCH better than what I was on before. The drug interaction thing coincided with some major life decisions on my part and a major communication breakdown ensued. So... I'll be one of those statistics 1 in every 2 fails thing. (that I was determined not to be included in but now am after much deliberation and yucky stuff that I won't detail here out of respect for the innocent)

ANYway.... I'm still knitting on my bamboo/cotton/nylon sock for my 3D boot, I'm thinking that my ankle will be healed before the sock is even half finished - but hey, at least I've got mindless st st on the go and I like how the yarn feels. Win/win! =)

sob

Also... unfortunately *sigh* while I was in the hospital for 13 days (long time I know, but I LIKE it there! really - they cook and I get to learn stuff from professionals = good) somewhere about 2/3's of the way through I learned that my dad and his wife had tragically died. Again, the details are just too awful for this blog's poor ears (and mine, too, frankly, I really don't want to know yet)

Did I say something about changing and rearranging a few posts ago? WHY do I do that to myself, eh? YUCK

So, I'm still pretty much in shock. I've done, denial, anger and some grief, but I haven't scratched the surface yet. (thank GOD for good therapists! Mine is good, and it's nice)

While I was gone a bunch of people cleaned my house and my camera is.... somewhere ? ? ? I don't know, lol - cleaning frenzies are like that, as I WELL know, so it was great help, I just can't find anything (haha) Which means, of course NO PICTURES! ARGH!

Anyway, I just wanted to keep you informed to some degree of what sort of oddness I'm up to at the moment, I'm surprisingly alright for the moment, a little/sometimes a lot, stressed, but managing decently well, thanks to good help and great friends. Hopefully I can post again mid week next or so, okay? Hang in here with me please, it's a bit up and down, but it'll level out soon enough. (i hope i hope i hope i hope)

love y'all!

I'm sorry to hear about your dad and his wife.
Although it's trite, the phrase "This too, shall pass" helps me. As I say, it's a bit ... cheesy (?) but it works for me!

All I can say is Hi, Really good to hear you are still hanging in there, and WOW, so much terrible stuff sitting on your doorsteps. Hope the kiddos are alright, marriages are hard in the best of times never mind when they are tested... and what awful news about your dad and his wife. Stay on the good side of that thin line, write things down and take dyed in the wools advice.. keep telling yourself 'this too, shall pass'

Sending some good thoughts your way.

Oh April, I am so sorry for your loss. {{{Hugs}}} and hoping your camera turns up soon.

Oh my. My heart goes out to you. I can guess that your Dad was young? I lost my Dad almost 7 years ago and a son a little over 15 years ago. The pain is great but does ease with time. You are in my thoughts and prayers for your grief and the other things. Hang in there.

Hi April, I found your blog through Ravelry. I am so sorry for your tragic loss, and for the time at which it came in your life. You call it spinning, I call it "spiraling". You don't know me from Adam, but I'm available to talk if you ever need someone to listen, trust that I'll understand and never judge.
