I had some good news--
and that I was back in full work mode--
but I am not--
Each day is still a huge struggle to get through--
and I just have no energy--
and still in alot of discomfort on the whole right side of my body--
the shingles themselves have pretty much healed up and are about gone--
but the effects of them are still very much still going on--
they now tell me it may be a year before I am truly over them--
I believe that I am also having some serious effects to chemicals here in the building--
and within the apartment--I do have 3 air purifiers running 24/7--but still often can smell wood smoke from the house next doors heating system--and that doesn't help me either--
but nothing can be done about it--soooo--

Soo you know that expression--
about jumping from the frying pan into the fire--
WELL--I didn't just jump into a fire--
I JUMPED into a --
bon-fire--(like there is lots of other problems and concerns here, that are causing me health
issues and mental issues!!!)
along with the cold and dampness--(had forgotten about dampness and how that affects me!!)

I haven't really done any sewing on anything--
did get a bit more done on the Fall cross stitch--but not alot--
have knitted one hat and have another one on the needles--
but doing anything with my right arm/hand seems to cause me more
discomfort on the right side--
even typing on the computer--have had to take breaks to even get this written--

Since moving here at the end of August food has tasted like cardboard-
even the 2 weeks before coming down with the shingles--and now--
finally once in awhile I can fix a meal and actually taste it--so I guess I am getting
better in some ways at least--and I can manage to cook better meals for myself once or
twice a day--so know that is helping me--right???

Thanks to those who have emailed me and asked about me--
I love and appreciate each and every one of you-
with out you, I would not be making it--
enjoy, di
