Still Here...

Just a quick update to let everyone know that I am still here.
Time for an admission...
I am a manic depressive (what is nowadays referred to as being 'bi-polar'). I have, up until a few weeks ago, been coping very well... but have found myself recently in the middle of an 'episode'... which means that I am feeling considerably low and detached. This means that for the most part I haven't been doing too much - though I have just updated my other blog. I find that crafting can be both beneficial and yet also a hindrance... when living through an episode, I can lose myself in crafting and shut myself off completely. This can be a bad thing, as I tend to ignore everything but whatever it is I'm crafting ... however, on the 'plus' side, it can mean that I am focusing my attentions completely on something other than how I feel (or don't feel.... other sufferers will know what I mean*lol*).
I am taking steps to 'recover' and hopefully will get back soon - back to my normal self (if I can ever be classed as normal at all *lol*)

So... in the meantime, please take care of yourselves everyone and I truly hope that everyone is having a wonderful New Year!

Oh Sheleen - I'd bee worrying that you were so quiet and I do so hope that things improve for you. Bi-polar is something that another friend of mine has to cope with - very difficult during the lows for her too. Here's hoping you're on the up ASAP, love and hugs. Di xx
