Hi everyone, sorry there's been no cards from me this week. I had a procedure at hospital on Monday, and was given antibiotics. I've always been fine with antibiotics (except Septrin), and have had these ones before and been ok, but this time my body decided it didn't like them. My whole face swelled up, I had headaches and felt awful. I stopped taking the antibiotics immediately and called the doctor, who put me on a high dose of steroids and anti-histamines. Finally, today the swelling seems to be going down, but I'm so tired from the anti-histamines on top of the medication I already take. So I've been no good to anyone this week!
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
