My Thyroid Haze

Well I have not posted here for a while, and on top of that I have not worked much on dolls.
I have not been feeling very well lately, I have battled my thyroid problem for about seven years now, and the past 6 months have been some of the more difficult to deal with. After much internet searching and reading and refural from a friend I went to a homeopathic heath center. They say I need to be on the natural thyroid medicine. (Armour Thyroid) Since my body was not abosrbing the synthetic medicine. I talked with them and read up on the pros and cons of this drug. I guess I was hoping for some sort of miracle to my misery, but that has not been the case. I have been feeling a bit better, but so far it has not been a huge change. The homeopathic center is saying that I’m in adrenal fatigue, I think my whole body is in fatigue! So there is more that needs to be adjusted then just my thyroid, let alone all the female hormone things that are going on at my age. It makes sense, from all that I have read, but I just want to feel better NOW!!! I think this is Gods way of trying to teach me patience, but I can tell you that I’m failing miserably.
Well I have tried to sculpt a new BJD head, so far I'm not real pleased with her... I hope I can work on her some more soon. I will try to post some pictures soon. She will be abotu 17 inches tall, I thought a smaller one might be easier to work with. Time will only tell with that :)

Thanks Barb, it's been a slow process but I'm starting to feel better. The new BJD is still in the works... just need about 10 more hours in my day.
