Lack of Posts

Hi all!  Hope everyone is doing well.  I just wanted to post so you know I am still here.  Sorry it has been a while since I have last posted.  Unfortunately I go in spurts.  Not because I don't want to craft or post.

I had cancer in my right arm in 1990, then fell and broke my arm in 1999.  I had to have a metal rod and screws permanently place in my arm.  Needless for the last 14 years I have struggled with the use of my arm...and I am right handed.  With the lack of muscle mass in my arm, the osteoporosis and arthritis I have in my shoulder sometimes it hurts and is difficult to use.  Like right now it is hurting enough that I don't move it much.  I can type for a while, but then the pain starts radiating down to my hand.  This is something I have dealt with for years so I am use to it.  But sometimes it is frustrating when I want to stamp or scrapbook.  See when my arm is hurting if feels like I am holding a 100 weight in my hand.  That is the only way I can explain it.  It feel "heavy".  I have difficulty moving it and it aches and hurts from the shoulder down to my elbow and like I said sometimes down through my hand.

Anyway...I just wanted you to know why there are times that there are long spans between postings.  Like tonight I got a card done.  But now my arm is hurting enough that I have decided to stop at one.  I will post the card at the end of the week.  So...I hope that explains my lack of posts when there are days or even a week in between posts and hope that you will still stop by and check out my cards and layouts when I do post.

Have a great night!

I'm so sorry, my friend! I understand pain from arthritis all too well. I hope that you will have good days where you can do what you love. Until then, listen to your body. If you need to chat, let me know. Gentle hugs!!
