feels like new

A lovely new friend helped by taking charge of moving my furniture around in the house.  I have felt ready to pack and move, not sure where - but that is how claustrophobic and unorganised I have been feeling.

That dark blue angel has been visiting again.  I took myself off to the docs today and have realised with her help that I seem to be encountering more of a premenstrual depression known as premenstrual dysphoric disorder.  For about 3 weeks I am feeling good, then for two weeks I am not.  I am trying a mega dose of B6 and some Evening Primrose and breathing.  I hope I feel better soon.

This afternoon was horrible, Mr DCT has gone to pick up the kidlets and do swimming - so I won't see them for almost 4 hours.  Feels like a break I have needed - and tomorrow we are headed off camping.  I do hope it is the r & r I need, but I am a bit worried it's going to be too much.  I am thinking positive thoughts and taking more deep breaths.

Here are some snaps of my new craft space that I am sitting in and it is making me feel happy - I may just sit here a while and take more deep breaths.






Much Love Rach xo

  2. Your craft space is a beautiful place and the view is wonderful. I'd also want to just sit and breath.

    I am sorry you've been depressed - it's a horrible thing, I know - and I hope it lifts soon.

  3. Oh your craft space looks amazing!!
    I can empathise as I too suffer from PDD (although hardly anyone has heard of it!) and its almost crippling for about two weeks of the month... hate it. Was given anti-d's from the doctor which made me feel sick.. might try the epo and B6... Zinc has been good for me too.
    Hugs to you.

  4. I was thinking of you today - I've been away from the blogosphere, but it's good to be back here. Sending you hugs, and I hope your blue angel gets lost in the bush this weekend.

  6. Hi there, I was in blogland and found you. I love your fresh online space! Do you mind if I follow you? Your craft area is wonderful. I want one that large and bright. Do you know where I could find a nice large table like the one you have? It is perfect.

    About the depression, I deal with the same exact thing. Thanks for putting it into words. I love the term, blue angel. I will have to call it that. Also, you inspired me to do more evening primrose and b vitamins. I know they would help. Peace to you, and thanks for putting your space out there. I am glad I found it.

  7. O what a lovely craft space! So beautiful and peaceful and I am deep in lust with your dresser!

    So sorry about the visit of the dark blue angel (although such a wonderful name) I hope she/he leaves soon.

  8. I love this space. Its much lighter and airier than my studio, silly plantation shutters blocking my light! In the midst of a makeover here too!

  9. What a lovely space to create in! The light and the bush and your gorgeous craft colours ... I hope your depression goes with your B6 etc., no fun at all. I find the older I get the more my cycle affects me ... In various ways. Am enjoying visiting your blog.

  13. wow I seem to have this three weeks good two weeks awful thing happening as well and it seems to relate to my cycle, i hope you find some answers, and share. I suffered sever depression for 15 years with no respite so I know how debilitating it can be. Love to you. Georgia

  14. Hey beautiful Rach,
    I am so glad that you now know the cause of your depression. I find that it helps to know your triggers and be able to recognise the beginnings of a down time to help you cope with it better. Well that has helped me at least.
    Sending much love to you xx Talia
