That’s enough for now, it’s always difficult to know which ones to choose. If you like these have a look at my website http://www.larainbriggs.com You can win one of my paintings on the 18th April if you sign up for the newsletter. Doesn’t cost you anything and the painting is up for £520. At least worth a look. I’m trying to get some more people to visit my site, so please share if you do. Anyway, that’,s my bit of marketing for the day. I’d given up on that for a bit. All I want to do is create, really I need an agent or manager.
Well the last two days have been strange. How to write something quite complex without it getting boring, any tips would be very much appreciated. I will try and be concise. Yesterday morning I felt so ill and had such pain in my stomach I couldn’t get out of bed and asked my son Jacob to get me some Pethedine. I’d forgotten that I’d recently had a morphine patch and added another antidepressant to my others. I’d been warned about ‘Seratonin Syndrome’ by the psychiatrist and was feeling incredibly ill. The stomach pain went away but I could hardly walk, my head was spinning. If anyone had seen me they would have thought that I’d drunk a bottle of vodka, plus! I couldn’t speak without slurring and I was sweating and extremely hot. Eventually I phoned the doctor. He said he didn’t think I had Seratonin Syndrome which by now I had fixated on in my confused and drunken like, drugged up state. He was concerned about the drugs I’d taken and said I must see my GP next day. Well today I thought I was feeling better but thought I’d check my pulse, it was 46 bpm :O !!!!! My breathing seemed to be about 8 bpm. Now, not fixated on seratonin syndrome but rather on death I phoned my doctor in a panic. The receptionist said she’d get the doctor to phone me. By now I was checking my pulse every 5 mins just to check I wasn’t dead. The dr phoned eventually and said get up here now for ECG. Well apparently it is very low, still is and I’m not well but all caused by the cocktail of medication I’m on. Oh, the fun of having bi-polar disorder as well as physical problems. Whilst there is breath left in me (if only 8 intakes per minute) I will continue to paint. I will also make sure I make it to my first grandchild’s birth in October and hopefully well beyond once I have the divorce court stress over with. I’m now with the mental health crisis team (no wonder). Life is so complex I can’t even explain it all but if anyone is a little curious about any of these issues I’d be glad to elucidate. Here’s hoping I haven’t been boring and that you have enoyed my art. Thanks for reading. There’s always so much more that I want to read than I can find time for so I do feel very privileged when anyone reads mine.
