Another FAT mama here. Been a LONG time science I have been active on MDC. So I am easing back in slowly.

i personally am NOT co-ordinated enough for a drop spindle. but the wheel for me, is a breeze. Jamie, my dream is to someday have sheep of my own too. for now i will have to settle for our bunny we are getting this week. a Jersey Wooly, like a miniature angora Knittinanny, the city farm sounds AMAZING!
hard is relative. for me knitting is hard, but crochet is easy. sculpting is hard, but painting is easy. lol. it takes some practice, so start with fibers you dont mind turning into your first slubby bulky yarn, cause it WILL be bulky. i LOVE spinning. i did find out the hard way that i am allergic to sheeps wool. i can crochet with it just fine, and have no problems. i can use lanolin just fine. but when i spin or card wool, i need to take benadryl or my throat closes up...
i havent read other responses, but for DD1 we use .25 mg of sublingual melatonin. otherwise she would be up all night for nights on end. when i was a child i never wanted to sleep when i had books available to me to read, and since i had my own extensive library as a kid, i rarely got any sleep. i think melatonin would have helped me ALOT.
Does anyone else have a child with Juvenile Bipolar? my 5 year old Addy has been exceptional from birth, and often people have remarked how incredibly gifted she is. when she was three we got a diagnosis of SPD, and started OT, and monthly visits with a juvenile mental health specialist, for her explosive behavior. now we know it is Juvenile Bipolar combined with SPD. I know historically alot of genius has been coupled with Bipolar, Vangogh, etc. and I was diagnosed with...
i have an ashford kiwi and i LOVE it! it has taken a lil bit of practice, but now i can spin anything from bulky to lace weight. and i love love love spinning. i never took a class, just alot of online youtube vids, and i joined the "spinners" thread on diaper swappers
so, my own issue: my bipolar has been SUCKY lately. lots of cycling. thanks to no insurance, so no meds. : but my mom has said she wants to pay for meds for me. two months later.... *sigh* so maybe i can feel more stable on that front. my fibro is KILLING me. most days i wake up crying in pain, need a vicodin before i even get out of bed. which is hard when i cant afford them and have to get some from my mom. my mobility is suffering, and being in the "pain body" really...
i have adenomyosis, which causes me INTENSE periods, last one was 2 months of constant clots, waking in puddles of blood, severe cramping.. it HURTS, and is horrible for my anemia. i was presented with two options, to have a hysterectomy, or to try the Mirena IUD. so i had the Mirena inserted. it has been a month and a half. with light spotting on and off, as to be expected, but i no longer have INTENSE cramping, hell i dont have any cramping. and my flow is super light,...
