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. :SICK: 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. >.<

About me

I run this blog! This blog is a personal blog for all things beauty related. I love swatching, reviewing and hosting giveaways. I've been blogging since I was 16 years old... That's uh a long time. I am now 34! Sometimes I like to blog about my life and what is going on, but not often anymore. I hope you enjoy my blog posts!

  • I hope you start feeling better soon. I know how terrible chronic pain can be, and how frustrating it is when doctors won’t listen and prescribe enough medication to help. I hope your stomach issues go away soon too.
    Hopefully you can enjoy having both your kids with you. Sometimes I feel like my babies are the only reason I get through the day.

  • Hoping you’ll get well. praying for you from across the world :)
    you’ll be fine hunny,
    stay strong.

    Oh sweetie. I’m so sorry you’re having to go through this. It is so ridiculous when doctors won’t actually listen to what their patients are telling them. And I don’t understand this whole thing where doctors either won’t prescribe or won’t prescribe enough vicodin. Yeah, there is a small population of people who have addiction problems, but for a whole lot of others it is the only thing that will help with pain. I get bad migraines and vicodin is the only thing that will touch them sometimes. And I’d rather take that than a migraine medication that messes with my blood vessels.

    But anyways…I’m glad you are able to have your whole family together for a few weeks. Enjoy as much as you can and feel better. :HK:

  • There’s not a lot to say aside from I can relate to you in every way your week sounds like my week. I’m sorry the doctors aren’t taking your pain seriously, it seems that most doctors these days are afraid to really treat pain. Naproxen is just a anti-inflamitory, but the stronger strength of it could be what’s upsetting your stomach.

    Lots of healing thoughts

  • awee girlie, I hope all gets better soon :) Ill definitely be sending good thoughts over!!! You are such an awesome mom <3 <3 <3 HUGS

    I get “food poisoning” with alarming regularity. It never lasts as long as your miserable situation seems to be, but I know a portion of how you feel. Ugh, just thinking about it is making me nauseous. I’ll be sending love and healing thoughts your way. I hope you get to at least a functioning level soon!

  • Wow I understand the doctor not wanting to prescribe narcotics to a point. But when you have clearly been on other things it would seem she would find something more reasonable. I cannot even take Aleve at all so it would be useless for someone like me. Sending you healing thoughts and prayers.

    Aw hun… This is awful :( I’m so sorry to hear all this has been going on… I totally sympathize with you on the falling down… I’m lucky where I haven’t managed to collapse on the stairs or somewhere it will really injure me (crosses fingers), but I’m so upset to hear that you’ve hurt yourself so badly.
    I hope the not being able to keep food down stops too…

    I’m sending healing and as positive thoughts your way I can manage xoxo
    I wish I could somehow help. I hope you can get a doctor who will LISTEN to you soon… This is BS what you’re going through…

  • Oh Sweetie. Sending ((((hugs))) and healing thoughts.
