I need to cheer up – and fast
If I haven’t said it already – Happy New Year to you all!
It has NOT been a happy 2015 for me so far, so I want to start this post with a personal update. If you don’t give a hoot about that skip to the next headline….
I started the new year feeling crappy physically – coughing, runny nose and all the other joys of a cold. I was also tired all the time, probably the cold in combination with my MS fatigue. And on top of that my MS made it hard for me to walk and my brain was not co-operating with me in any way.
Then on the 6th I had a meeting with my caseworker about my sickness benefits, and my world crashed. I will not waist your time describing the problems with the Danish public service, just say it’s designed to make sick people feel even worse…
I ended up with a moderate depression and has now added anti-depressives to my long list of medication. Sometimes life is just NOT what you want it to be……. I am sleeping most of the time and when I’m up I’m chain-smoking and drinking coffee by the gallon and feeling sorry for myself.
I am starting to feel a bit better and yesterday I felt good enough to take “my own medicine” = designing therapy. So I turned on the computer and made a Cheer Up Kit. It is mostly made with PS Actions as my brain is still not able to work on it’s own and my right hand is having spasms so working with a mouse is “highly entertaining”.
Cheer Up Kit
This kit is made to make me AND you feel happy, and what is more happy than coloured dots and lots of them….?
The kit contains 10 pattern packs with a paper and 9 elements each to cheer up any layout.
I hope to return very soon as a better and happier me but until then: Take care of yourselves and the ones you love!
