Thought it had been a while since I did one of these updates on my health. So here’s the rundown.
My appears from nowhere, for no rhyme or reason at the moment.
I get a tight chest, my thoughts are all over the place, I feel lightheaded and think I’m going to faint. The anxiety relievers I use are a stress ball type thing if it’s within reach at the time or the apps I’ve downloaded on my phone especially for anxiety. I’ll let you know them in a later post.
If I’m near my bed I lie down and listen to music or a guided meditation. It does help alot at the time.
It was going swimmingly, no problems as such and then it started leaking. So bag changes were and still are a bit of a performance.
My kidneys seem to be doing overdrive, I have an ultrasound at the end of the month so I’ll know more about that then.
I have to have another major op on my skin and stoma in the next 4 months to sort the problems out.
I was iron deficient but from last test I’m OK but still gotta take these horrible tablets.
It’s not been too bad actually I do however find myself going off to bed early like half 7 at night some evenings.
My voice goes and my voice gets sore when my body thinks I’ve overdone it. Some days I feel exhausted even after 8 hours sleep. But I find a happy medium most of the time where I can have a nap if needs be or just a lie down.
FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER
My mobility is very up and down, when my body cooperates its good when it doesn’t I have to either use my wheelchair all the time or go into hospital if it is a real bad episode. We have had our shower adapted, so showering is much easier. Before we had a tiny closed in cubicle now it’s a lovely big wet room.
Most days my body is aching. I use wheat bags or a hot water bottle as I find heat it a great healer.
I wish I could have someone on tap for massage because I find that relieves the aches too. I want a new matteress one that your body just molds into, but until I’ve had my op it’s on hold.
So there you are the life of a chronically ill peach.
But blogging keeps me going and writing is my passion so I won’t stop.
Thanks for stopping by
Til next time
