Another doctor, another diagnosis

Saw a pain management specialist today, who doesn't think I have fibromyalgia. He thinks I have arthritis of the spine.

So in a couple of weeks they'll inject dye into my spine and see what happens.

I've been sadly neglecting this place, and I feel awful about it. But I am so tired, and in pain, and can't seem to pull myself together very well.

I miss y'all.

I'm alive

Not doing as well as I would like, but I am alive.

How're y'all?

I'm alive

Just waffling between rage and despair over my latest fibromyalgia attack.

WTF hips?!?

So I take one step wrong, and my left hip (and I, almost) screams. By wrong, I mean, "I have no fucking idea what I did other than try to walk."

So I limp for a step or two, then my right hip decides to join in.

*throws hands in the air in frustration*

Dealing with the usual stuff

So earlier this morning I had a post composed in my head that was me whining about how I'm not writing, how I'm an utter failure at life in general, that my creativity was dead, that I really shouldn't be bothering anyone with anything.

But the only thing true in the above statement is that I'm not writing.

I am not an utter failure at life in general or even life in particular, since I'm still alive. Yes, I'm in pain right now, but I'll deal, as I always have.

My creativity is certainly not dead, just taking different forms. I'm really interested in my sewing class, and I picked up a cross-stitch that I haven't touched in months to work on at work. Also, I got a catalog in the mail yesterday that offered a set of "illuminated" coloring books and pens for $30, so I may ask my Dad to get that for me.

So, that is the state of the Jenn at the moment.

So the official diagnosis is...

1) Upper Respiratory Infection
2) Fibromyalgia

I have horse pills for the first, and an increase in Cymbalta for the second with more to come if that doesn't make any difference.

In honor of being defective, here's my favorite song about it
