How I’ve Kept My Sanity: Crafting Through Misdiagnosis… (Part 3)

I finally posted Part 3 of the Toxic Medicine series, so I thought I would show you guys what I have been working on. My strength is coming back, but I get worn out so easily. I’m used to carrying people, not because it is part of my job description, but for funsies. Now I get tired carrying a couple 50 lb. boxes yarn around the building at work. So, no large exhausting projects for me, but nuno felting scarves is my new passion. I can finish one in a day, and I only work up a mild sweat when I start needle felting aggressively for some of the edges.

To see some of the scarves I’ve made in the last couple weeks, follow the jump…

Toxic Medicine: Part 3 – The Gastroenterologist Mark Fesenmyer (Ignorant or Lazy)

How I’ve Kept My Sanity: Crafting Through Misdiagnosis… (Part 2)

Nuno Felting!

Yes, Nuno Felting is so much fun! I started working on them when I got really sick from my negligent doctors, but now I am up and running with them! (My white blood cell count is now within normal range!!!!) They were so much fun to make, and it was nice, because when I was sick, it allowed me the chance to make something in stages, instead of all at once. I could felt it over 2 or 3 days, and it was a great experience! It’s not exactly the fastest thing in the world, but it is quite fun! Maybe I’ll even teach a class on it soon!

For those who don’t know, I was quite under the weather for quite a while, and you can read about that here!

Follow the jump for some of the first scarves I made!

Toxic Medicine: Part 2 – The Infection (Hang In There)

So, as you know, I picked up an infection during my colonoscopy procedure. After the procedure, I had some really nasty side effects. I had lots of pain and discomfort, on top of quite a bit of drainage, and even bleeding. This was not quite what I signed up for. When I complained about these things, and asked why Dr Foley didn’t perform the fistulotomy, she responded with, since there was muscle tissue, she did not want to do the fistulotomy. When you cut muscle tissue, she said there were quite a bit of complications that could involve severe side effects. So I took her out her word. That was a huge mistake.
