    Getting there

    Hi all
    Been a while since I have been on here so I thought I would update you all on my progress.
    My pottery business is going well. I have regular classes as well as a selection of private classes and parties. I also have regular customers for my pottery cows and sheep and this year I ma also expanding into puffins.
    My mental health is generally stable. Being able to set my own hours helps as I can take days off when I am not feeling too good as my daughter is now able to cover me for most classes if I need her too. Her mental health problems does mean that she can handle new students or private sessions though. Thankfully I have a good friend who is learning the ropes to help with the parties.
    I have had a little knock back this week. I have had problems with tooth pain and had several visits to the dentist who has been unable to find the problem as the pain has moved around my mouth. Last week the bouts of pain were so bad that they started to wake me at night so I spoke to my doctor. She said it was probably Trigeminal neuralgia and put me in some new medication. This floored me. I was struggling to stay awake and my mood plummeted. Thankfully after a few days I started to feel better and the bouts of pain are much less severe. I do still wonder however if I am wrong and the pain is caused by something else. Hopefully I can come off this medication soon.

    It’s so good to see you, you were on my mind yesterday when I saw some posts from Carantac Art on fb. It’s great to hear things are relatively stable, you’re amazing!

    I totally agree with Paula! Have you had a hair cut too or was your hair just well tied up out of the way? That pic of you and the birthday girl round the wheel is an amazing one! You look so happy and confident and she just looks so happy and inspired!
    What meds are you on for the TMJ pain?

    I had my hair cut a few years back when I got fed up of seeing a witch in the mirror every time I went past, but I try not to be in pictures if I can avoid it! The medication is carbamazepine

    Glad to hear from you Pen, expanding in to puffins that's a great idea I always regard them as cute but comical birds.
