Musings of a Cripple
Lately most of my time is spent lying down. I've been trying to keep busy and as distracted as possible. Sometimes my brain can handle some creativity so I will make earrings or try some other craft. Other times I'll watch a movie or blog. I wish I could read but I honestly don't have enough brain power. I'm gonna try some books on tape soon and see how that goes!
I've been looking around for some simple do it yourself projects that are cheap and useful around the home. I've been thinking about making throw pillows for the couch but I'll need to get a machine although I could possibly do it by hand. I'm looking around for some inspiration in this area. Does anyone have any simple projects they can think of? I'd love to be able to use things from the house that I already own.
On another note I could use a lot of prayer as it comes to medical treatment. Having trouble getting in to see specialists. It's been an interesting experience having to be in charge of my own treatment. Before my mom was my advocate as I was only fourteen but now I'm the one who has to speak up. It's been a difficult process but I'm learning and it's a good lesson for me to be learning. I have to be tough and not give up on making all those phone calls to doctor after doctor. Let's just say calling strangers is not my forte! Please pray that an appointment opens up so I can see the doctor as soon as possible. Mahalo nui loa.
