In the near future...

Hopefully I will be posting more creations soon, however just a heads up as to what is going on with my life.

I had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday past, and he told me that he didn't think that just going in to see him once a week was enough. He says my anxiety and other problems are more serious then what he thought when he decided to take me on as a patient so......

Next week he is going to be starting a process to send me to a hospital in Whitby Ontario which deals with mental disorders. I will be staying there for I don't know how long, he feels that I need round the clock treatment so I can get better sooner, because it has almost been 3 years that I have been this sick.

It's kind of embarrassing to think that I am going to be in a mental hospital, not something to be proud of, I have been in the hospital before but not one just dedicated to mental illness and it was hard, because despite the anxiety I am functional, I am not a danger to anyone, and I can think clearly, I don't like that anxiety is under the category mental illness because of stereotypes, its sounds worse then it really is.

I don't know exactly when I will be going, could be a week or even a month from now, it is when they have the room for me, its just a waiting game, hopefully I will have more creations to post before then but if not please do stick around because I will be back, I'm just letting everyone know now whats up just in case.


  1. O Candace, hang in there. I am still praying for you constantly and I know that you WILL get better soon. There is no need to be embarrased about going to the hospital, it takes a really strong person to accept help for anything.
    Just focus on getting well. At least the dr. is taking this seriously and doing something about it.

  2. Oh Sweetie I am sending you lots of positive thoughts and hugs.
    Hang in there we are pulling for you. Most people understand about "mental illness" if they take the time to learn. It effects so many people. Don't be embarrassed at all. I am just so happy to see you getting help. You are much to young and beautiful inside and out to let this continue. You have a whole life to live yet.
    I will continue to follow and hope to hear along the way.
    All my love sweetie!

  3. Sweet Candace,
    Don't feel embarassed. I'm glad you are getting treatment. I'm always an email away if needed. Big hugs!!
    Much Love.

  4. Candace, Thank you for the sweet "Thank you card" That was so nice & It was a real pick me up! I will be praying for you during this tough time...I believe in my heart that you will be just fine! I will be looking forward to seeing those new creations from your studio!

  5. Hi Candace, I have a back problem you have a head problem, just bits of our bodies not quite working right - same difference! You are so brave sharing this (and I love your card!).
