Just a little update
Sascha has been home since the third and it’s been awesome. Kai decided to take a week off while he was home, however this was the only week he was able to take off. Which kind of sucks because we’d planned on going to the zoo and the coast/aquarium while he was off. That won’t be happening this week since his last check went entirely to rent and some groceries. So we’ll have to go on his regular days off after he gets paid next week. With that said it’s been nice to have him home for a week.
My health has decided to freak out recently. I’m not sure if I ended up with food poisoning or if it was just my lyme freaking out. It sure felt like food poisoning. The past week I’ve been getting car sick. I’ve never been car sick in my life. It’s been so bad that I’ve actually had to go in and get sick at Kai’s work. It’s really frustrating and annoying. Today is the first time in about four days that I’ve kept something other than watered down orange juice down.
This morning Kai got a call from his Uncle Terry asking if they could stop by today. So we had to hurry up and shower and get ready. I’ve had to use a shower chair for awhile now because I can’t stand up long enough to actually finish taking a shower. It causes my heart to pretty much go nuts and I get too lightheaded/dizzy. So when I stood up to turn around and turn the water off my left hip and knee went numb and I fell in the shower, again. The whole reason I started using the chair was because I fell from getting dizzy in the shower a couple of times before. This time I really hurt myself. Beyond it being incredibly upsetting and painful it’s embarrassing and I hate this. I’m just so tired of it. The entire left side of my body feels sore and bruised and completely torqued. My left foot up to my knee is half numb and sore. My left wrist hurts so bad it feels broken and my arms muscles have knots and spasms. My right ankle feels badly sprained. I’m just so much more sore after falling and I ran out of gabapentin last night and have no refills. The naproxen that the new dr put me on does nothing for pain, so now I have absolutely nothing. The gabapentin at least helped a little. The naproxen does nothing. It’s supposed to be extra strong aleve which I told her didn’t help me at all. She said she wasn’t going to prescribe me narcotics and wanted me to try this. I was living on otc pain pills before I went in, why are they suddenly going to work now?
I’m just tired of whining and complaining at the doctor, to have them not listen to me. I went in for lyme and pain, and neither are being addressed at all. I wanted something to use for pain while Sascha was here so I could try to do as much as possible without hurting too much. That kind of happened. My first doctor gave me 28 vicodin to use at night. However she prescribed me the lowest dose which I have to double to have any relief at all. So I have 5 left. Bleh. I just want to be able to enjoy all of my time with the kids while Sascha is home instead of dealing with pain and migraines and crazy emotions because my body isn’t functioning. It’s hard to enjoy things when your body is screaming with freaking pain.
Kai’s aunt and uncle ended up taking us out to eat at Sushi & Maki and then took the kids to Toys R Us and got Fumiko a cute hello kitty plushie and Sascha got a halo lego kit. I didn’t eat much and I’m glad I didn’t. I got really car sick on the way home and ended up getting sick after his aunt and uncle left. Goodbye yummy spicy tuna roll. Fortunately I’ve kept dinner down so far. Though my back has been hurting more and more. Tonight is going to be fun.
Anyways. Between Sascha being home and being sick, I haven’t been able to get much done. Today is the first time I’ve worn makeup in a week. I know there were spelling errors trying to type one handed, but I can’t find them at the moment and my spell check has decided to stop telling me I’ve misspelled words.
