Deep Breaths and WOWEE!

Well I'll start with the WOWEE moment first.

A huge thanks to Laura over at Scrapbook Chalet for including me in her DT line-up starting August. Thrilled is a mega understatement. It's a really friendly site that I happened on when hunting down members of another, now deceased, US forum I used to be a member of. Everyone has been so welcoming and friendly and it's not at all cliquey. Nor have they complained about my English spellings :D I am so excited to have the chance to showcase their beautiful kits and to work with the rest of the girls on there.

Now for the deep breaths. After posting last night about being given some meds for my depression, several girls recommended that I take them at night time rather than morning. Ever the procrastinator I thought I would follow their advice. But come 11.30 I couldn't put the moment off any longer. I am really apprehensive about the side effects as most of them are symptoms of my depression to start with and I really want to be feeling better, not worse! I don't know if it is my imagination (I know, I know I shouldn't have read the side effects blurb on the leaflet) but I am feeling rather woozy, a bit like when I've had a couple of glasses of wine - which is all it takes to make me drunk. I think I will be heading up to bed soon.

Thanks to everyone for your kind messages and words of encouragement and particularly of experience. {group hug} moment :)

hey sweetie.. congrats on the new DT.. and for taking the meds.. the side effects if any, will probably only last a few days whilst you first start taking them. be brave and go with it for a couple of weeks. you've got nothing to lose. I promise!

Dear Suzanne

YES - one should ALWAYS reed the leaflet - there is a reason it is called a Patient Information Leaflet - however, one shall not expect to suffer from all or any of the side effects. I work in the pharmaceutical business and had to make that clear.

But I hope you will find it helps you and wish for you that the light at the end of the tunnel will come closer by the day. TG for our wonderful hobby, believe me as long as you manage to scrap and find pleasure in it, you're not doing as bad as some people.

All the best
and hugs to you
