I barter for my life in my head
I make promises I can't keep
I lower my expectations
I say I won't fall in love
If I can just publish a book
I say I'll do better
If I just get 15 more years
I do not want to die
Death comes anyway
I wonder how my heart will stop
Maybe I can't breathe
Maybe I go into shock
I try to make the damage smaller
Hurt as few as I can
But I can hear the shattering of lives
Echos of grief to come
Every friend is the burden
of collateral damage I bear
Loss is the price of knowing me
Life Threatening
Five years ago I developed a chronic life threatening illness. It's progressively robbed me of the life I had and the life I wanted. 

My life feels shattered and I'm just desperately trying to reassmble the pieces into a new life but it feels like there isn't enough pieces left to make a life. 

I realized I grieve my own life, as though the life I once imagined for myself was my closest friend and I've been cradling her in arms long after she stopped breathing.

I don't know how to protect the people I love from losing me.

Horn Pattern
I designed some new horns and the pattern is up for sale! They are much bigger than my previous horns and use short rows to curve the horn. The instructions also include how to attach them to my Skyrim Inspired Viking Helmet.

This completed hat is also for sale!

Crochet Viking Hat
I designed some new horns for my Skyrim Inspired Viking Helmet and made the horn pattern available by itself. Make some giant horns! Put them on things!

I'll be posting new hats for sale over the coming weeks. I haven't finished a new pattern in a few years which never stops being sad to me. I'm really sick, I'm pretty much allergic to everything now and I can't be a massage therapist anymore. Everyday is a constant fight to breathe and function in my life. I started developing worsening allergies a few years ago and now I'm disabled from it. I can't work outside my home, have to use hepa filters in my house and high pollen count days I have to wear a respirator outside... which sucks.

I can't really do the things with my life that I wanted to do anymore. It feels like my life broke and I'm picking up the pieces I can still use and making a new life. One of those pieces is designing knit and crochet patterns. So I'm making new additions to the skyrim pattern, rewriting it, and my sister, who is a photographer, will be doing the photography. The hats I'm  selling are prototypes and pattern tests.

It's easy to lose hope so I'm trying to focus on actually living my life instead of just being afraid to die. I have to focus on what I can still do and not everything I've lost.

Hello! I hope you don't mind my posting on your page today! I'd like to invite you to a brand new group; Pop Culture Crochet. I'd love to make this group a hub for all things crochet with a pop culture spin and I think some of your items would find the perfect home there.
 :happybounce:  Please, help me get this group off the ground!
