Project 365 Day 75


Ed sacked out on the couch with me. As much as I enjoy the company, I hope he doesn't catch my upper respiratory infection.

Dear body,

You're fired.

Nowuv,

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*

Project 365 Day 15



I'm not even going to start to list them

Jan. 14th, 2010

Oi vey, body

So, in my never ending quest to do things the hard way, I not only have a upper respiratory infection, I have a UTI. AND I think my bag is leaking while I'm at work.

I'm home sick, but...

I still bring you goodies.

First migraine in FOREVER

And man, has it knocked my head clean off. Yesterday I woke up with the headache, took some medicine, promptly threw it up and spent 20 minutes shaking and sweating over the toilet. Spent the rest of the day shaky, sweating, and in a lot of head pain. Managed to keep a little food down.

Tried to sleep, that didn't go so well. I'd either be too cold or sweating from being hot.

So far it's mostly better this morning, pain wise. But my head is still barely attached to my shoulders, and I'm still not comfortable with my temperature feelings (I'm either too hot or too cold, can't find a medium). It's like there's pressure in my head, but I'm not feeling it.

So yes, this migraine has kicked my ass, stood over me, and laughed about it. Not moving is real high on my agenda again today.

Cleaning up the Corner a bit

Taking a broom to the corners of my mind...

Changed up the theme to try to get away from mental darkness at the moment. Much thanks to [info]stellastars for offering this wonderful free layout.

Have any of y'all been diagnosed with fibromyalgia? If so, how did you and your doctor(s) come about that diagnosis? What do you do to treat it? The PT lady mentioned it as a strong possibility, considering my physical issues, but I don't want to jump into Internet-condria and proclaim that I definitely have it. I want to know the steps my doctor and I will have to take to either rule it out or confirm it.

Cardiologist update

He's says I'm OK, mostly. The increased heart-rate is not an arrhythmia, just a fast heart rate. He's checking my thyroid levels, but he's very sure that it's just due to borderline dehydration. I need to be more aware of drinking water, and add a touch of salt to my diet to help balance my electrolytes.

Now, I'm going back to bed. I'm still very tired and worn out from yesterday.

Spent the morning in the ER

I'm OK now, but... )

Hi there

Sorry for being MIA that last several days... been sick, exhausted, and not sleeping, and needed to crawl into my shell for a bit.

Wrote something for [info]ffvii_100's prompt of "Self Inclusion" called Get Away. Might try to write one or two more things.

Working on two [info]no_true_pair prompts at a time, trying to keep my brain interested. All the DMC stuff keeps wanting to turn into OMGEpicFic and I'm trying to keep sane. :-p

Another update

Started in on another [info]no_true_pair, the Jan 1 Dante and Maria prompt. 700 words and I'm probably halfway or less through it.

But, I have to stop now. Pacemaker check-up, which is never fun. They speed up my heart to 100 bpm, then mis-fire the leads one at a time to make sure they're working properly.

After that, I'm heading to Game Stop to pick up my reserved copy of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for PS2 and then we'll see how I feel. I've not eaten much today (not worth it with the doctor's appointment), I might take myself out to dinner.

I'm home and mostly OK

I am home. The doctor looked me over and took several x-rays, and sees no indication of clots or bone chips. I fell hard against the wall yesterday during a dizzy spell on a shoulder that has been giving me trouble since I got into a car wreck 15 years ago.

It's just badly bruised, one of those deep tissue bruises that will take time to heal. I have a sling to wear for a few days (more to remind myself not to use it than anything else), prescription strength ibuprofen to take for a week, and some heavy duty painkillers for when it's really bad.

Thank y'all so much for the messages. I appreciate all the support. :-) I hope I didn't sound too much like a crazy drama queen. *sheepish*

Now I will take one of those pain killers and head to bed.

This isn't good

I'm about to take myself to the nearest Urgent Care. I have had a severe pain in my left shoulder all day, and I've developed a bruise on my left hand and occasional prick of heat-pain in my left wrist. This is very very troubling to me because almost exactly two years ago I developed blood clots of out the blue.

My heart is racing and my hands are shaking, and I don't know how much is terror, and how much is a problem.

I'll post again as soon as I can.

It will soon be much harder to be a woman in this country

This is about to become fact, which has potential repercussions to go WAY beyond the obvious pro-lifer's no abortions thing.

We won't even mention the horrifying image that someone on the medical team could decide to have a crisis of conscious while you're strapped to the table and walk away.

Oops, I did.

Stop this. Go to Planned Parenthood and see how to help them stop this. Call/write/email your Senators and Legislators and tell this to stop this. Write/email/call McCain and Obama and tell them to stop this.

Had a bad headache yesterday, due to a summer thunderstorm appearing out of nowhere and deciding that my neighborhood was the best place to have a target practice session with it's lightning. Still very groggy and out of it today.
