As promised, here’s a photo I took this morning after sleeping with the henna on all last night. So, it’s a bit darker now. I love the design though! I consider a swirl symbol to be very symbolic of me and my life. Something like a trademark? Who knows. But I had to include it somehow.


My Henna!

Shall I share the ironic aspect to this design with you? I didn’t realize it until this morning as I was peeling the dried henna off. I added several dots in between the rays of the sun. {Yes, it’s a sun} Now you can’t tell from this particular picture but I’m seriously covered in moles. So now it looks like I just drew in 20-ish more moles than I actually have. And that one dot in the middle of one of the top rays? Yeah I didn’t draw in that one! See, you can’t tell the difference can you? I still love it though :)


As far as my progression with the Cat’s Claw. Whew. Day 2: Today was a long day. My mental capacities are barely discernable right now. I feel like I’m sifting through sludge when I try to think. Or write. Writing is becoming more difficult, which is a painful acceptance. I’m hoping this doesn’t continue too long. I’m also having chest pains, dizziness, loss of appetite, and I’m having some difficulty breathing. But once again these are all normal symptoms for me. Do I attribute them to the Cat’s Claw? I don’t know. I wish I did! Some of my eye symptoms are coming back too. That’s a little nerve-wracking. I’d really rather not have to have another spinal tap before heading off to Mayo.


I think that’s it for tonight!

Peace and healing, molly
