The past two weeks have been extremely difficult for me. I've been in and out of the hospital and ended up having an urgent surgery yesterday. I haven't talked about this much here, or anywhere for that matter, but I've had a lot of physical and mental health problems the past few years that have weighed me down. Perhaps I don't talk about them because I know that I truly am lucky, and that relative to others, my trials are so insignificant. Also, it's hard to admit to being fragile. But this last week has been hard, and I've felt so lonely. I'm trying to count my blessing and make use of the time I have to sit and rest (I made over 200 bows, you are welcome to check them out here>>>> thebellewhistle, I'm hoping for sales to help cover some of my medical bills). The medications I'm on slow my body and brain so I've spent a lot of time sitting, thinking, and looking through old photos and files. These images were taken a few years ago when I was going through similar health problems. At the time, they were the result of a drug induced desperation to complete a class assignment. But now they are some of my most treasured images.
