Care Packages x3

Since the beginning of March my health problems have worsened which has left me in a terrible state. My arthritis pain is significantly worse, I will be returning to my pain specialist soon to begin treatment on my hip degeneration, multiple seizures and migraines have floored me and some days even walking is a struggle, so my body is very strained and I have been dealing with depression. You probably noticed my posts have been less frequent because it is difficult to focus but I am trying to keep myself engaged.

Over the past few weeks I have received three care packages, which have lifted my spirits. They came from Tom at The Angels In Order, Jon from A Penny Sleeve For Your Thoughts and Angus from Dawg Day Cards. Between the three there were probably 100 cards, this really put a smile on my face.

Unfortunately, I had the cards in three stacks on my computer desk and I moved a blanket off of the end of my bed, hitting the desk and sent most of the cards to the floor in a big jumble so I don’t remember who sent which card. So I am going to present some of the cards that helped lift me up, know that while I am not posting every card I want to thank all three of them for the care packages and each card is now happily in their place in my boxes and binders.

Tomorrow I will post up the rest of the Mariners cards

  1. Those Totally Certified Red cards are gorgeous. Sorry to hear about all the health issues- hoping for the best for you.

  2. Sucks you've had a rough go of it lately. Good luck feeling better soon, Cork!

  3. Glad you enjoyed the package. Hope you're doing better.

  4. Likewise, glad you were happy to get the cards. Hoping you're having better days.

  5. Oh man... so sorry to hear about your health. I hope the pain specialist takes care of the problem... or at least makes you feel more comfortable.

  6. Like everyone else I'm sorry to hear that things have gotten worse for you. It seems unfair that you have to keep dealing with all these kinds of things, especially since you're a really good person and one would think because of that, that you're a little overdue at this point for some good stuff to start happening.

    Since people have made the same offers to me, I will go ahead and throw it out there, that if you ever need anyone to talk to... I'm just an email or Twitter DM away. I probably can't relate to a lot of what you're dealing with, but unfortunately I know all about depression and migraines.

    P.S. I'm just now seeing this, so please forgive the lateness of this comment.
