Changes for the Couture Courtesan

It's been quiet around here...

And here's why.

I'm about to embark on four days of doctor's appointments (wrist-related and otherwise), followed by a week and a half with my family and friends in California and Hawaii. I'm hopeful that things will pick up after that, but it all remains to be seen.

I am sorry. Even though there are people with worse problems, having your passion - such a big part of your life - taken from you must be very hard. My mum has arthritis in her hands, so I've been thinking about how I would feel if I got it too.... I hope it will get better, so that you can at least do some hand sewing again, even if not full days of it.

I am a long time "lurker" and a great admirer of your work. My heart really goes out to you and you will be in my prayers. Something very similar happened to me over the last two years. Lyme Disease and Mold Toxicity took away my ability to think, work, sew, or do any of my historical passions (including working in and going to historic houses, museums and antique stores.) I totally understand your struggle and the depression that goes with it. I wish I could reach out to you in some way.

I think it is so important for us to be able to talk about things like this honestly and openly. Thank you for being so brave. Keep looking forward and take one step at a time. I wish I could give you more "wise words"...but I am right there with you. :-)

I was told by my doctor that there's no possible cure for it but it can be suppressed with the use of medication!! I felt depressed & sad. I started taking my medication. I felt frustrated, so I tried to seek help online when I came across this website of a doctor called Chief Dr Lucky.  Also I saw a lot of testimonials about him on how he uses natural herbal medicine to cure HIV AIDS and numerous Infections & different kinds of disease as well. So I contacted him and told him my problems after a brief consultation with him. He Prepared and  sent me the herbal medicine and I took it as he instructed me, Then he called me 3weeks after to go and have a check-up!!

Few weeks ago my girlfriend told me that she was fed up, so she packed her stuff and left me while I was taking a walk to cool off. When I got back, I was so messed up because I didn't even know what to do, it was like my whole life was coming to an end. That night I drove to a friend’s house and he was nice enough to give me a description of a man who did spells that could bring her back for me. He said this man brought her fiancĂ©e back to him after 2days. The man's email is, it was this man that then did a spell and brought Claire back to my life. She was now so humble and calm, she was respectful and lovely even more than i can imagine. This man is really strong and accountable. I never regret anything through him. meet him if you need help in your love life. visit his website you may find your solution there
