An MS delay....

I was feeling bad for myself.  I didn't go this year's AQS show in Paducah because I was sure the addition would still be having work done on it...well, it isn't finished but just learned they will not be working on it again until Tuesday!

Then I woke up last night in pain...I mean fork in the eyeball sort of pain.  My MS/optic neuritis has kicked in.  So, it is just as well I'm not in Kentucky which is 9 hours away from home!
Me in Paducah a couple years ago with the Super Quilter...
The Opt. Neur. screws with my depth perception (crowds could be tough!) and makes my color perception a bit "off" (not a good time to view quilts!)

Some postcard quilts from friends..
This may be the toughest thing about MS...very unpredictable.  I knew I was trying to do a lot last week but was trying to pace myself.  Maybe I didn't do as good a job of that as I thought or maybe it is a reaction to the poison ivy on my arms?  Who knows...

So today is a stay in a dimly lit room and stay very still while taking lots of meds and drinking herbal tea...with luck this will be a short one!

Hope to have more on quilting and quilts in a day or so....

I agree, better to be home when your MS is flaring up. Hope you feel better soon!

Not a fun thing at all. DD#1 deals with this, too. I am glad you are safely at home to nurture yourself in as much comfort as possible!

Janet said...

I'm sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. I hope it's not long until you're back to your sewing machine. It looks to me like you're doing a good job of remembering the fun from previous trips to Paducah.

When we don't feel good, being stuck somewhere else than home always makes it worst. So take care of yourself and the quilts will still be there ... for another time. ;^y

Oh my gosh, that sounds awful! Praying for a speedy easing of the symptoms.

I am sorry that the timing was bad and very sorry that the pain occurs. Having a similar type of pain though probably not as severe I truly empathize. Hope you feel better soon.

Sorry to hear and hope you are feeling stronger soon!

Diane said...

So sorry about your MS flareup and that you didn't make it to Paducah. It stinks! I can't count the times that the stress of preparing for something fun has actually prevented me from doing it. Feel better soon.

MS does suck lemons, my friend! Sorry you're having to endure a flare up. Take care of yourself and hopefully you'll get thru this quickly...
