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.

Dear body,

You're fired.

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*

Three things before bedtime

1) Dear period: You really did not need to claw your way out through my back. Really.

2) Project 365 Day 29

My new bumper sticker!

3) "Famously Hot"... except when they're calling for freezing rain/sleet/ice/other assorted WTFery tomorrow

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.

Day 2

Up to 710 words.

BUT, I now know the thief and bored warrior's names, so I'm OK with it.

Also, the playlist for the fic is now 7 songs long, which is good.

Now to just get the damn doctor to actually do something about my pain, instead of giving me muscle relaxants and sending me on my way.

Not a good 24 hour period so far

Woke up yesterday with headache

By 11am headache had morphed into migraine, complete with light sensitivity and prickly hot/cold flashes and nausea

Spent the next 15 hours wishing my head would just explode already and get it over with so I could die

Got a couple hours sleep about 4am, woke up a little bit ago with fever and all the joint pain that goes with an elevated body temperature

I see the doctor this afternoon

Pain sucks

The fact that I can't even empty the thrice-damned dryer without my shoulders starting to hurt is beginning to piss me off.

No good deed goes unpunished of the week

So, this morning I went to the grocery store to do my shopping. The only bagger they had was an itty bitty girl with braces and pigtails named Jenny, so I told her I didn't need any help getting my stuff out to and into my car.

On the way out, I saw a cart that someone had abandoned half in one of the handicapped parking spots. So I figure in order to help my itty bitty name sake, I'd grab the cart as I went by and put it into the cart carrel when I was done unloading.

Well, I soon learned why it had been abandoned: the damn thing attacked me! It snuck up behind me as I dragged it along and took a chunk out of the back of my foot! It bled, and it hurt, that kind of hurt that makes you want to be sick in public all over the back of your car. I didn't scream, but I whimpered and cursed a bit. But I still dragged it to the cart carrel.

Cleaning it also hurt, like, a lot. Goldeneye came rushing into the bathroom when I yelped to check on me, then rubbed against my other leg the rest of the time. Mom looked at it when I saw her a couple of hours later, to make sure I hadn't missed anything when I cleaned it, and said, "Nope, you've got a nice triangle gouge in your skin, it'll be sore and take forever to heal since it's right were your shoe will go."


All because I wanted to help my itty bitty name sake.

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.
