Epilepsy, Why do you hate me so?

Yesterday I had an appointment to see my neurologist at the hospital in the morning. My body decided that it was going to try to do everything in its power to prevent that from happening.

I needed to go to the appointment to tell them my epilepsy isn't exactly behaving and it's giving me a hard time and it even proved me right on the day of my appointment as I woke up at 3am sick.  

Ever since I started taking seizures I would always be sick afterwards no matter what type of seizure it was. Only as I got older, my sickness was followed by migraines which really isn't pleasant and afterwards my body feels odd or like jelly.

Determined to make my appointment, I sat in bed for a little while and got a drink of milk. I thought well, if my stomach can handle that then I should be able to get some sleep.

Could I though? No. My back hurt, throat hurt, head hurt and I was over all really uncomfortable because of it.

So I stayed up until my taxi was due to arrive, yes I still went. Although I went looking absolutely terrible but at least I can say I still did it. 

I told the nurse that its been happening a lot and it is getting out of control and I also think I am taking myoclonic seizures because my arms shake randomly and I start dropping things all over the place, food especially and it is so frustrating. After discussing all my worries and issues and going over other things with her that made her see concern.. It seems that I may be due some more brain scans. She will be discussing it with my consultant. I do hope to get to the bottom of it all soon.

Once Upon A Time - New Episode

image from google

I only just noticed that Netflix uploaded a new episode of Once Upon A Time. I did plan on watching some spooky theme family films as Halloween approaches, but this has magic right so still counts.

I do really like once upon a time, and I waited patiently for the new episodes to be put up. Although, the only way I managed that was by finding other things to watch in the meantime. 

Hopefully I don't sneeze all the way through this episode as I have the sneezes at the moment... my cat Spyro is looking at me strange as usual, she likes to make sure I am okay and comes over to me, meows then once she can see that I am fine she wanders of happily.

If I don't get crazy looks like that from her, usually she falls off the bed or something. 

So now that my sneezes have kindly stopped, time to watch this episode..

Who else likes Once Upon A Time?

Beads glorious beads!

I absolutely love making beaded bracelets. I find it is great as a relaxing method when I am really sore , it takes my mind off the pain.

Once jewellery is done I swap it for nice items. I hope to swap some ready made bits for household items for when I find a new home.

I do own a lot of beads, all different kinds. I have also had people get beads to swap with me so that is handy

The above photos show the beads I have recently received.  They are both packs of crackle glass beads, different sizes. I have no idea what I plan to make from them yet, I just create bracelets as the ideas come to me. Since I already have a lot made up, I think I will just get rid of all that first.

I also own plenty of charms and other jewellery bits. 

Finally got more tippex!

Tippex is such a life saver when it comes to letter writing. Rather than ending up frustrated at the mess of a error and the thought of starting all over again, a little bit of tippex saves the day.  

This was one of the items I received as part of a swap. I do already have 2 spare tippex rollers but the more the better as they are always needed.

If I accidentally write an address wrong on an envelope I don't go throwing it away, this is where tippex comes in handy again. 

I like to reuse things and hate waste when it isn't needed. I'll be honest though I have never tried a tippex pen and I do wonder what they are like, if they are easy to use or if they dry up quick as I found some basic tippex fluid used to dry up easily all the time or maybe I just wasn't using it right.

Been Unwell & Weekend Is Coming!

I do apologise, I do want to start blogging again but my migraines seem to say otherwise. So I have had to have a bit of a rest for a day, which was a bad start I know but still a must. 

It also gave me some time to think about ideas of things to talk about although instead my body choose sleep! Never mind... There is always tomorrow right?

Well tomorrow I have the hospital to speak to a Neurologist about my Epilepsy so first of all I have to write down what I plan to say as they always ask how things have been and my answer certainly won't be "great fantastic no seizures or sickness" as that isn't the case... 

But after that is done, I can come home and I have no plans until social work contact me to arrange to come to see me... which is another thing I don't look forward to but I need help so it is needed. 

But again, enough of this doom and gloom. I hope the weekend will bring some nice swaps or maybe even ebay sales.

It's just a shame I can't train my cats to do every day tasks...

New DVD - Alice In Wonderland

I do absolutely love Disney movies but I will admit that this is one that I have never watched. I do want to get all those I have never watched and see what they are like in the future and hopefully build up a Disney collection of my own. 

I do already have a few Disney movies on DVD but not as many as I would like. The same goes for other family movies. 

My favourite of all time though have to be both Pocahontas and Mulan. I could watch them over and over again without getting bored and sing along to the songs also since I have watched them so many times now. I may be 25, but I am still a kid at heart.

New Gluesticks!

You are probably wondering what is so good about having new glue sticks? I'll tell you.

As a letter writer, I have a lot of different stickers for my letters and I do often come across some that are well.. not sticky at all. It would be a shame to throw away stickers when they are still in perfectly good condition so glue sticks are always handy.

I also use them to glue mini cut outs of paper into penpal friendship books containing the name of my facebook swap group just in case any penpals around the world want to join. I thought it was a good idea. 

Because I am crafty, I would be totally lost without glue sticks, tape and things like that. I could use double sided tape as I have that too, but I save that for when making paper envelopes. 

What do you use glue sticks for?

Charm Earrings

As many of you may know already, I love swapping stuff. I am also disabled and I struggle to walk so I'm stuck inside most of the time. Luckily with my mail being posted by a neighbour I can continue my hobby.

Charm earrings are so simple to make, and my penpals love them. Some even ask for matching bracelets. I do love jewellery making but due to back pain I can't tolerate much anymore but I can still do a few bits at a time which is enough to get some trades done.

Below you can see some current ones I have available:

I thought I would share my ideas with people. They may be simple but they still make a good gift.

New Cat Treat - Easipet Cat/Kitten Scratch Pad

This item was part of a swap I did with a member in my swap group on facebook. She kindly got me this in exchange for some goodies and it seems my cats love it. Although as I was opening the box, all Spyro was interested in was running away with the cellotape until she actually saw what was inside and smelt the catnip.

Poor Blaze did want to play and have a roll around also but Spyro made sure she spread all over it.... So Blaze took a huff and sat on the floor.

I think I can safely say my cats are very grateful and love it. One of their scratch posts is ready for the bin and to be honest so is one of the activity centres that I have for them as they are both a few years old. I did buy a new activity centre to replace the old one but I haven't yet thrown the old one out. I thought this would be a fine treat for them.

Eventually Spyro did let her sister have a turn on it as she got hungry.. One thing I must say though is  although I knew it came with free cat nip, I thought the portion was tiny. Maybe I just expected too much since it was free after all but I do have catnip of my own so I guess that is something. 

Since my cats love it so much, my review of this definitely has to be that it is a great product for cats.. Especially lazy ones with the way it curves ha!
