Photos Of The Last December

Do you remember that I've traveled back to my mum's house the last December while my husband was away for a business trip?
As my health is not good so far, there is no stitching photos to share, so I will share you these photos that I took in my hometown.

From the beginning of our trip, we reserved Nozomi Shinkansen (bullet train) to back to my mum's home, and here is Nozomi! It takes about 4 hours to get back from our place to my mum's house, the time we board Nozomi is about 3 hours to get there, though.


Here is my Bento! My son bought rice balls for lunch and we ate them in the train!


One day, when we went out for a walk, I took my camera with me, and took some photos around mum's house!
First of all, we went to a small shrine nearby and my son was excited that he found so many acorns!! He thought there should be Totoro (Hayao Miyazaki's Anime)!

And we walked up to the hill, we found beautiful and big maple tree!
Isn't this colour beautiful?
(But I don't know why, when I went near the tree, I smelt very stink, lol...)

At our ordinal walking course, we found fox tail, and sweetie was glad to have it to play with!
Sadly we don't have much nature in the cities, so it's so nice to be back to my mum's home with my son, because he can find and see many natures... I want to live in the country side...

We decided to change our walking course, and we decided to go where we have never gone before!
And found this very old and small shrine...






And in someones land, we found this, I think the owner of this land intended to put persimmons on the stump. Isn't this beautiful photo?



Persimmons and Japanese pampas grass...


Here is an additional photo, this is Okina's Mask which my son was very scared...

I remember I was also so scared when I was child!! :)



I was feeling well yesterday, so I was very happy and have started cross stitch!!
But, suddenly I had terrible stomachache and I realised it's not normal ache... I remember before when I've got married I had terrible stomachache when I was talking on the phone with my boyfriend (now he is my husband...), and I hung on the phone and after that I didn't remember anything, I lost consciousness and fell down from the stairs to the first floor...
And my parents took me to an emergency hospital in the midnight...


Anyways, the pain was the same as that time, so I was so afraid and as expected I was almost going to loose consciousness again...
I had greasy sweat, and excess breath... I thought I shouldn't loose consciousness, because this time there is no one to help me, there is only 3 years old son...

So I thought to call ambulance, but I also thought I shouldn't, because I will be found by paramedics as I'm showing my bottom in the bathroom (LOL)

And of course my son won't get the situation, he won't be able to unlock the door key, so I thought I should crawl to the entrance to unlock the key as showing the bottom, if I called ambulance.
I was too shy to be found as half naked!
That made me will power very much.

Actually after that, I fell into the same condition, but from second time I took the mobile phone to call ambulance or my mum just to make sure, and a plastic bag to prevent myself from excess breath.

So from the second time I felt a bit better than the first time and was OK...
But it was so scared...
Today I feel unwell again... so my stitching time was just finished all too easily...


What's wrong with my body???
I had been hiding about my health to everyone, but to be honest I have so many symptoms, I have been in a depressed state for these few years, and have been visiting doctor once two weeks.

Actually I have menopausal disorders even I am only 34... it's harmful side effects by medicines...(it's very hard!!)

And very low blood pressure... and so on...

It's actually quite tough to live normally, as having 3 years old boy, it's more harder, and there is no helper around me...

So we are talking about our future situation many times with my mum.


Well, so it's not the right time to stitch for me so far...

I will stitch and blogging when I'm feeling OK and little by little, but please stay in touch dear friends...



Take care everyone, and please have a lovely weekend!

I am so sorry to hear that you are feeling so unwell. I hope that you can go to a doctor very soon and find out what is wrong so you can get it fixed.

I suffer from depression but have medication that helps me function normally. It is no shame to get help with that.

On another note, seeing the picture of the bullet train is so exciting. I would love to come to Japan and travel on it. I love to look at your pictures of a country I would love to visit.

Please take care of yourself. You are so important to so many people, especially that cute son of yours.

So sorry to here you are still not well yet. I just love to visit your blog & see the beautiful things you make. I do hope you will get well soon.

Cheryl said...

I am so sorry to hear you are unwell {{hugs}} Look after yourself.
I loved looking at your photos - that bullet train is impressive, i showed my husband the picture too

Mãe da Rita said...

:(( I' m so sorry for knowing you are so unwell! I hoped that you will feeling better a bit each day :( Are you taking the right medicine? Don't you need to adjust it? Your symptoms seems the same I had last November: my stomachache were from blather and I had mononucleosis also (fatigue, depression and the hurting pains in stomach). In another way, I think of thyroid, your symptoms my show that you need some compensation by pills. Did you go seeing a doctor? I think you should pay attention; after all, you have your sweetie with you and it's very difficult to live with those symptoms ans in fear of loosing conscience with no adult near you. Something may happens! Please, take care of you! Huhs, lots of!! (sorry about the long comment and the personal talking, You made me concerned...)

Rachel said...

I love your photos from December.

I'm sorry that you are feeling so under the weather. Please get well soon.

Tammy said...

Dear Sweet Yuko, please see your doctor and do not hide any symptoms from him. Be truthful about all, even those things you would not tell your family, because the doctor is there to help you. You must take care of yourself for you and that beautiful sweet boy you have. I hope you feel better soon. Physical problems can take away much joy in life--especially stitching, lol!

Nancy said...

Hello Yuko,

Thank you for sharing your photos. They are very pretty, and I love the photo of the tree in Autumn. We have many trees in our neighborhood, and I love to watch them as the seasons change.

Please, please take care of yourself Yuko. I am a little worried about you, and I do hope that you will be OK. Be sure to tell your doctor everything so he can help you. I will always keep in touch, and I am here if you need me.

Hugs to you,
Nancy

Carol R said...

Oh Yuko - please visit the doctor and tell him everything you are feeling - and get better really soon. I am worried about you. You must teach Tass how to call emergency services just in case - he is a clever little boy and will do the right thing if it becomes necessary. Please take care.

Love your photos - your mum lives in a beautiful area.
SMILe
[[[hugs]]]

Yuko.. sorry to hear that you are not well.
Is there a homeopath in your place, i think they have solution without side effects.
Hope to see you healthy soon...

Take care, lots of love and {hugs}, I hope the Doctor can help you to feel better soon.

Karoline said...

Lovely photo's Yuko, I agree with Tass there should definitely be Totoro :)

{{{{Yuko}}}} Take care of yourself, I hope you can get the right treatment soon

Irene said...

Hope you get better soon. Loely pictures.

Cindy F. said...

Maybe you should see another dr.
Your symptoms don't sound good and if you need an ambulance YOU CALL ONE!! doesn't matter if you're butt naked! You take care of yourself when your body is screaming at you...Maybe your meds are not good for you! I hope you find out what is wrong soon. Be careful and take care.
Beautiful pics:) If you're not able to stitch, don't worry...we'll still be here for you:)

Chris said...

I am sorry you are not feeling well. I hope you get the right treatment and feel better soon. Your pictures are lovely. I would look for Totoro by the acorns too. :)

Wendy said...

I so hope the doctor can make you feel better.
please tell him everything, your son needs you !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dorothy said...

Dear Yuko,
I am sorry that you are feeling so unwell! I really hope the doctors will find out the problem soon, and fix it.
I too, went through a very bad period of depression after my children were born, and I know it is very hard! Please take care of yourself.

Jennifer said...

I am so sorry you're feeling so bad - and I am keeping a good thought for you to get much better very soon

Cindy said...

Oh Yuko, I am so sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I hope that the doctor is able to figure it out soon.

(((((HUGS)))))

Doris said...

i am very sorry to read that you feel ill health, please please go to and see the doctor, it's better to prevent than to regret, it is very important to go before the biggest things happend and you will see in a situation like mine, where I waited too long and I had to operate (surgery), please your litle son need you.

Caro said...

I am so sorry to read about your illness. I wish you to recover soon, hope that it is not too serious.
Hugs, take care

Hazel said...

Oh dear Yuko. Your situation sounds very bad. Is there a firend you could call on and ask for help? Or a neighbour maybe? You do not need to be on your own right now being so sick. My heart goes out to you my dear and you need to go and see the doctor and have some tests done. x

Von said...

Oh my dear Yuko! Sending you hugs and thoughts and prayers that you will be restored to better health very soon. Please continue to seek for answers to your problems and know that all your blogging friends care most of all for you, and not your stitching (as wonderful as it is!). :)

Susan said...

{{{Yuko}}} - I'm sorry that you are not well. I agree with a couple of other comments - you should teach your son how to call for emergency services. Do you have a neighbor who could come in and assist with your son should you need to go to the hospital? I can imagine that the additional stress of worrying about your son is not helping your situation.

More {{{hugs}}}

Sally said...

Yuok I am so sorry to read that you are still not feeling well. I agree with the others that you should see your doctor and tell them everything that you are feeling. I do hope that you feel better soon. {{{{hugs}}}}

Your photos are beautiful. The bullet train is very impressive.

I am hoping to get your PIF made up and in the mail this week.

Andrea said...

Yuko, sorry to hear of your health problems. Please make an appointment to see a doctor. They are there to help. Make sure you let them know all of your symptoms even if it seems insignificant to you. I know people can get embarrassed about nakedness etc, but docors, nurses, paramedics they have seen it all before, I'm sure that is the same in all countries. Take care, I know you will think on the things other people have said and you will do the right thing, when you are ready. Sending lots of {{{{hugs}}}}

Evik said...

hi, your blog is great, i like your blog very much.
visit my pages please, i have something for you on my blog.

Dora said...

Yuko,
I'm sorry that you haven't been feeling well. I hope you will go see the doctor and perhaps get a second opinion. Take care! Your son needs you.

Anonymous said...

Perhaps you should see another doctor? Your symptoms should be treated. Can you program your phone so that emergency service's number will be under 1 or 2 or 3 or some number he knows so all your son has to do is press the number to reach them?

However, the yellow ginkgo leaf at the shrine is beautiful. You take very nice photos.

Jennifer/OH said...

Such beautiful photos...but such a sad story about your health problems. I hope you find a doctor that can help you with these terrible side-effects of your medication. ALWAYS call the ambulance! They are trained professional people who do not care that you are in evening gown or naked when they come to help you.
The works of your mother in the previous post are so lovely. I especially like the camisole top. Beautiful!
If you feel well enough and care to do so, please e-mail me your mailing address so I can send a small package to you.

valerie said...

Oh Yuko, I'm so sorry to hear that you are unwell. I think that during this difficult time, you should stay close to your mom so she can keep and eye on you and your son and perhaps a different doctor for a second opinion may be helpful. I'm thinking of you. Take care,
Valerie

Pumpkin said...

Beautiful pictures Yuko :o)

I didn't realize you haven't been feeling well lately :o( It almost sounds like panic attacks but I may be reading you wrong. I've been in a similar boat to you ever since 1995 and the doctors are always confused about my symptoms until something shows up in a test. I hope you will go to the doctor and see what they can do. ((((HUGS))))

geeky Heather said...

Yuko-san, the pictures are beautiful! Thank you for posting them. I had not tried a persimmon until recently, and I enjoyed it very much!

I pray that the doctor can figure out what is wrong so you will not need to be frightened about your health! And very soon!!

angelasweby said...

Yuko,
I'm so sorry you are feeling so unwell. It must have been very frightening for you to recognise the same feelings you had last time when you lost consciousness especially as, this time, you were alone with Tasuku. Thank goodness you were able to manage the situation but, you really need to get this checked out to avoid it happening again. I think about you a lot my dear friend and I worry. You are so young you should be enjoying life with your lovely family.
I hope you begin to feel better soon and I am thinking of you :>)
I love the beautiful photos you are putting on your blog. Your country is so beautiful I would love to visit, maybe one day :>)
With warm affection Yuko
