Something different for me..

I think the day may have come that I've been dreading for quite some time.  I'm having such a difficult time with the Rheumatoid Arthritis that has plagued me for more than 20 yrs, that my doll making has almost come to a standstill.  It came on fairly suddenly and isn't subsiding like in the past.  My fingers and hands have become so painful that I've been unable to sculpt successfully. According to my Rheumatologist I'm already on the maximum dosage of the medication I can safely take. It's worked for over 20 yrs, for that I am thankful. I'm hoping that resting a while, I will be able to resume sculpting for a little longer.  In the mean time, my love of treasure hunting is seeing me through and giving me something less painful to do, and may in the long run give me an alternative to sculpting.  I hope it's someting that I can do more part time and in addition to my sculpting than instead of. I'm slowly listing some of my vintage treasures in my Etsy shop.  Even that is slow going.  Wish me luck and keep me in your thoughts please.
Thank you all for all of your inspiration and kindness.
