Untitled Post

All that needs to be done to Lil' Ellie is to pad out the waist and hips.  In the meantime, we are perfecting a new PMB sloper, this time out of muslin and not that Swedish Tracing Paper.  That makes a really crappy sloper.  I just have to refine the shoulders on the sloper and I will be ready to move forward with this project.

I am not forgetting my promise to "review" Strattera.  Here it is:  Started out with way too big a dose. (40 mg)  Constipation, I mean, REALLY.  It made me VERY CRANKY.  Also, I could not get to sleep at all.  I decided to go off it.  Then I really got depressed, because I can't tolerate the stimulant type of meds for my ADHD.  So after a while, I tried it again, but started at 10 mg.  I slowly worked my way up to 25 mg.  It works as well as anything could......Yes, I can now organize, focus and all that good stuff.  Sometimes it makes me really sick to my stomach, especially late at night, but you know, you gotta suffer if you wanna sing the blues.  Actually, my executive function is working quite well.  I just wish I didn't have so many balls in the air.
