Im back. :)

So after a trial of going off my medication I have decided to go back on them.  I was slipping, I was teary, my mind was growing foggier, my memory was just terrible and I was utterly exhausted. 

I had a few good days in here and there which gives me hope that one day I will be able to be free of medication and manage it naturally but for now I have decided I still need a little extra help and that's just fine too.  :)

It has been a good few days since I went back on my medication.  Today I woke up and my mind was clear and brighter then it has been in weeks.  Its lovely!

I have been out in the garden watering and picking herbs for a cup of fresh herbal tea, tending to the chooks, getting on top of the laundry.  Its a beautiful day here.

We will be having chops for dinner, with a garlic and rosemary....something?  And served with home made oven chips and some greens on the side.  I made custard for the boys for dessert which they never get tired off - Children are funny like that!  

We are a chook down as our sick chook was just lingering for days.  She was not getting better, she was not eating and she is quite old so after a little discussion and explaining to the boys, Grant put her out of her misery.  They coped very well.

I have a Waldorf doll set give away on my face book page if anyone is interested in entering!
She is made from:  
- 100% cotton swiss tricott
- mohair hand crocheted hair wig
- stuffed will pure wool
- clothing and ring sling made from cotton
- felt boots
- hand dyed cotton stretch. 

Here she is here.....Her name is "Lou" and is very sweet.  Her overalls are an offcut from the dress I made the other week!  I really love that fabric!

And here is the link to enter....

Good luck!  I'm off to do some sewing.



  1. It's good to read you are feeling better. I hope you have a lovely day.

  2. some meds aren't designed to come off cold turkey, you may have to go down to a milder one. there are many good herbs you can use to help too. you will get there eventually, tiny steps & slowly, don't rush it, it will happen for you. glad you are feeling better.
    thanx for sharing

    1. Yes, I was very careful in knowing dosages. :)

      I think looking a little further into herbs is a great idea. I have st Johns Wort growing but I think that is about it....oh and camomile.


  3. So glad you are feeling more like yourself. Sometimes meds from a Dr are all we can do. I take meds as well and will never be able to function without them. They are for my Arthritis. I would be bed ridden without them. I hope you are able to ween yourself off of your meds. I wonder if your Dr has any insight on switching to herbal help. He or she may even have a name of an herbalist that he could collaborate with. Does that make sense?
    I love your dolls and wish I had a little girl I could give one too. They are so sweet. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thankyou! I think there is a young girl in all of us. ;)

      I did have a great Dr at one stage bt sadly she moved on. I have heard of another though she is difficult to get into. I should try her again. Good thinking. Except she wanted me to go dairy/gluten free. ;) I was really bad at it!


  4. Emma, I tried to comment yesterday on Bloglovin but the App is just hopeless at the moment and sometimes won't move past your header. I hope you are feeling better and just take your time with coming off the meds. All in due time.
