Chinese calendar. What does this mean for Chinese folks? I think it's going to be a very expensive Valentine's Day meal as most restaurants are closed.
My husband and I do not celebrate Valentine's Day. Throughout the year, he comes home bearing discarded cartons, cardboards, boxes and tins as gifts. I have this thing for containers and I can just picture him rummaging through the trash cans looking for goodies for me. This, my dear folks is true love. Ok, ok, I believe he only went through the trash can just once. Anyway, that's why we don't celebrate Velentine's Day.
While making this bag, I was in my withdraw-from-my-medication program. I have a condition called myofascial pain syndrome. I take medication daily in order to lead a normal life. Although I can continue to take the medication for life, I am rather unwilling to shall I say, surrender? My intention was to live with the pain and manage it through other relaxation methods. This is my third try to stop the medication. This time round, I surrendered after 10 days. This is my worst performance. The first 2 times, I lasted 1 month. I am very disappointed in myself. My husband who has been through my pain many times is more disappointed. I forget it's not just me who suffers. But to be honest, when I decided to go back on the medication, I was only thinking of myself.
Myofascial pain is so overwhelming it squeezes the life out of you. I'm not even sure if it's humanly possible to live a normal life without medication. So why do I keep on trying to stop? Still I'm grateful that at least I have a drug that works for my problem and 2 doctors who care for me.
Lastly, remember the passport cover I made for Viv? I am accepting orders for customised passport covers. I'm afraid I can't make the same one I did for Viv because that one's for her. If you are adventurous, check it out here at Etsy.
See you soon.
