Crafting my Fingers Off!

We are having an "Austerity Christmas" this year, and part of our money saving efforts is to make some of the Christmas presents we are giving.  I have all the ideas and supplies I need to make the gifts, and am crafting my fingers to the bone trying to get them completed in time, and I'm not sure if I'm going to make it!!

I am way behind due to my bright idea last month of stopping taking my antidepressants!!  I ran out over a weekend, and then kept forgetting to ring for a repeat prescription.  I found I was feeling fine at first, a lot less "flat" emotionally, but gradually the depression started to take hold again.  It was such a gradual slide, that I didn't even realise at first, and thought I was doing good!  Once I started to take notice of how I was feeling I made sure I got my tablets and restarted them.  I started to feel better straight away, apart from the incredible tiredness that always hits me when I feel depressed, that is taking longer to go away.

I wish I had been sensible and carried on taking my medication properly, as I'd be much further ahead with my crafting, isn't hindsight a wonderful thing!?!  So I am going to try and make the best of it, and probably have a few weeks of late nights and, fingers crossed, I'll get there in the end.
