Craftster Pick of the Week – Say No to (Scary) Drugs

It's the Craftster Pick of the Week - brought to you by Mr X Stitch!

Time for another look at some of the great work featured in the forums at Craftster. Note: Although they’re the pick of this week, they may have appeared before this week.

Mandyhello was inspired to create this cross stitch after a recent trip to the doctor. She tries not to take medications unless absolutely necessary. This cross stitch illustrates why.

While she couldn’t actually fit all of the side effects of the medication she chose to profile, here’s a list of what she was able to fit in this sampler: unusual changes in mood or behavior, thoughts of suicide, increased risk of death or stroke, high fever, stiff muscles, confusion, uncontrollable muscle movements, high blood sugar, coma, death, dizziness upon standing, seizures, impaired judgment or motor skills, and trouble swallowing. Yikes!

To see more, check out her original post here.

Nicely done, Mandyhello – we look forward to seeing more from you. 🙂

  • I was enamored of this piece when I saw it on craftster.

    Jackie, I believe the information you seek is in the craftster post, but it may be throughout the comments, etc.

  • Some days a piece comes along and you just wish you had made it. I am racing to check my meds to see if there is an increased risk of death! This is joyous!

  • I spent 6 months of my life stitching a series of antidepressants. This feels like the Tom Cruise answer to my Brook Sheilds problem. Kind of upsetting to me.
