It’s Saturday afternoon as I’m writing this, curled up in the warm on a very blustery day. I thought it been a while since I gave you an update on my health in general so here is the rundown.
If you didn’t know i suffer from four main health problems that affect my everyday life so i will talk through each of them
Having Anxiety for 16 years or more you would think that I wouldn’t get freaked out when a panic attack strikes. But I do every time and it’s the coping mechanisms afterwards that get me through. I have a couple of apps on my phone that are aimed at people who suffer from anxiety. i will touch on them in a later post as i’d love to go a bit more into depth.
My anxiety has been problematic lately sometimes waking me up in the early hours and I need some music or a film to try settle myself back down. I’m hoping it’s just a blip and will subside soon.
I am still no further on with my legs than the last time if anything they have been getting paralysed more frequently and it’s been 3 months since I was able to walk and sometimes I forget and go to stand up to walk and then remember I can’t. A few other symptoms have come along with this like my speech is stuttery at times. I get little tremors and my circulation is quite poor.
I have an inpatient stay soon at a specialist hospital so if I go quiet you know where I am should only be there a few weeks. Hopefully they’ll be able to help.
Its been two and a half years since I had my Bladder stoma. I have actually not had many problems with it lately I’m taking the medication religiously and doing all the things I can to keep it healthy and functioning properly. I know some people neglect theirs and I think I didn’t have a 7-hour life-changing operation to just not bother looking after it.
So gold star for me.
This is always lurking in the background. When I’ve maybe had a good day I’m always punished with horrendous fatigue and a voice that resembles a 60 year old man and I can barely focus on anything so I usually just sleep and sleep and sleep. Netflix always comes in handy put something easy watching on. I’ve had more bad days of it than good at the mo but as I say I’m plodding along.
Keeping a positive mind through it all as I know if I get a negative head on I could easily fall down into a hole of not wanting to do anything so it’s onwards I go.
Til next time
