I have been away for such a long time without any explanation, I feel really terrible about it. I don't often write about personal problems on the blog, but I have had so many wonderful friends checking up on me, I thought I had better assure you all that I am still alive and kicking, lol.
It is a bit of a health issue which has kept me away. A few weeks ago, I was feeling so dizzy all the time with constant chest pains etc, and that frightened me enough in the end to overcome my dislike of going to the doctors. Turned out I had extremely high blood pressure ( 210 over 110 ) and rapid heart beat, and the doc seemed a tad concerned, yikes! An immediate ECG showed the heart was ok though, apart from the rapid heart beat. He put me on some blood pressure pills immediately and arranged for me to see a cardiologist a few days later. He thinks heart is ok, but cholesterol is high, so now I am on an interesting mix of pills and a no salt, no fat diet, well, as low as possible, some you just can't avoid, even with the most careful attention. I am feeling somewhat better by now, but just haven't been in the right frame of mind to get crafting or blogging. So there you have it, my love of food is probably what caused it all. Hopefully, with the very strict diet and pills, I'll be back to normal pretty soon.
In the meantime, big hugs to all of you, and I hope you stick around for when I give myself a kick up the butt and get crafting again.
