Just got back from SISiversary. So many times I almost didn't go. My headaches had been really bad again every single day, and the Byetta was making me a little sick still. Didn't want to be a Debbie Downer on the trip. Thankfully, on my follow-up visit with the doctor for Byetta, I was able to get some prescriptions for the migraines. She stocked me up on samples, and then I got one filled. Did have to take one Saturday morning during the event.
I was so nervous meeting so many people. To help with expenses, I drove up with three other ladies and shared a room with someone. None of these people I had ever met, only online. It was really good though. I had so much fun with all of them.
I'm so glad I did go to SISiversary. I was really nervous and not feeling my best, but I, in my older age, pick up on things and am more aware of things that just don't feel right. I can't explain it, and I won't even try, because it will not make sense to anyone but me. I'm so glad I went now to two scrapbooking events. Two totally different ones. I do think after having major life-changing experiences I still have a lot of work to do on myself and that does have a lot to do with it. But especially after this weekend, it was confirmation again for me, that I need to do what feels right for me. I need to be me. I would love to get together with people again to enjoy this hobby, but I don't know that I would do another event. Just really cannot express what I'm trying to say. Kind of like working at State Farm for 20 years, I lost a lot of me, I feel the same with events like this for some reason. And I just have to start learning to trust myself.
