ON MY MIND today, and sorry to be so serious, drug allergies. I had a reaction to a new medication yesterday, something I have actually taken before but now at a larger dosage. It didn't require emergency services, but I did break out in hives on my face, neck and shoulders. I knew enough not to take the second pill yesterday and today there is less but still some evidence of a reaction.
All this because of some new neck and shoulder pain which has been driving me crazy for the last 3 weeks. I kept putting off doing anything about it because "it will go away in time". But last Monday I couldn't take it anymore and made my appointment with my spine doctor. More meds, more PT, more tests................. and this was supposed to be a better year.
Well the good news is that the medication was helping, so if we can find something similar then maybe this won't drag on. Tomorrow I start PT yet again. That will put a dent in my free time and I was just getting into a good groove up in the stamp cave.
Anyhoo, in the picture above is the origami tulip I first tried out with kraft paper. The tip is kind of smooshy because of the bulkiness. And on the bottom is a new pouch that I picked up this weekend for my travel zentangle kit. I thought the cork facing was cool. I hope it holds up.
