You may have noticed over the last few months I’ve not posted much about sewing or actual gardening. More viewing than doing. Well these have been challenging times to say the least.
For the last 30 ish years I have had a condition call Sarcoidosis, ( google if you want rather than me go into detail ). I have only had 3 flare ups in all that time but this one is the worst I’ve had. I had been losing weight over the summer and getting more and more tired, I am only a slight person anyway so the weight lose was significant. Me being me I try not to complain, more just get on with things, but it’s difficult not to give in when you are getting more and more frustrated because you haven’t the energy or the inclination to do the job in hand in the first place.
Matters came to a head a few weeks ago when my best friend came over and said ‘Sue you look dreadful, can’t you see somebody about this’. This is a proper friend who says it like it is and I am so grateful to her for being so bluntly honest. So 2 days later I was seeing my specialist and things got going. I am now taking an 18 month course of steroids and yesterday I had a biopsy in my nose and throat. All went well and the thinking is that it is 99 % sarcoid with a 1 % ??.
I have been on the steroids for 10 days and I have to say that the gloom I was feeling has lifted and it will only be a matter of time before the energy levels rise. Other things I have to live with but I am ever the optimistic so life goes on, the planing for next year starts now, with lots of tearing out and replanting with Mr Malc at the helm and me doing the supervising we will win.
And for the beauty I have looked at my past pictures to find something to cheer me and hopefully you my faithful viewer on this my happy day.
Always a joy to have Granddaughters doing what they do best showing off to nana.
Norfolk in the summer, along with North Wales some of our favorite beaches.
Mr Malcs allotment earlier this year looking full to bursting and a brilliant tonic all this fresh produce.
Thank you for reading….NO sympathy please, as this is my way of getting out of my system my thoughts, feelings and the start of better times. Also more postings……. 🙂
