Tip Junkie's "Tip Me Tuesday"

In 3 short weeks my boys will be starting school.  It's always bittersweet and this is the first year they will both be in school full time, all week...sniff, sniff.  They have been incredible this summer.  At the end of June I had  a Lupron injection, the first of 6, to try and control the endometriosis that collapses my lung.  The side effects of the medication were intolerable.  Insomnia, joint pain, fatigue, dizziness, migraines, depression, hot flashes, night sweats, anxiety, loss of appetite (not good for a skinny chick)....I was suffering.  When it came time for the second injection, I said no.  The effects are wearing off as my hormone levels creep back to normal.  Last night I slept all night for the first time in 7 weeks, thank you God!  I was missing a good night of sleep.  And thank God for the supportive and loving family I have that took such good care of me.  It's a complicated disease but I have a new doctor and I've got a bit of hope back that things will work out.  One thing I learned it to listen to my body and my body was screaming this medication was not agreeing with me.  I'm so happy to be feeling almost normal again.  As the old Elton John song goes..."The Bitch is Back" hooray!

Anyway, I haven't been creating and sharing much at all this summer and now you know why.  But Tip Junkie has a feature "Tip Me Tuesday" and I thought I'd share one of my Halloween Treat Bags today.
