2024...you're kinda kicking my butt here lol. Anyone else on their 2nd or 3rd antibiotic already? Attempting to 'push through'?

We're in the 2nd month of 2024 and I'm on my 2nd antibiotic 🙃

(there was a high chance it would've actually been be my 3rd lol. Thankfully my asthma fixed up)

Anyone else feel...almost punished by the universe lol?

I barely go out (part fault of chronic conditions, part agoraphobia tendencies) and yet I still get sick, sick 🤔

I'm told by so many to 'push through', but I am pushing.

Everytime I get to the toilet in time. The times I make it to work. Remembering key dates. Having a bath. Drinking enough liquids. Replying to that text...

To all those pushing already by just existing: I see you and I am one of you. It isn't easy, but we're really trying our best💜

A New Diagnosis

After weeks and weeks of leg and hip pain and some blood tests, yesterday my GP diagnosed me with Arthritis that’s associated with my joint hypermobility (Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome) I’ve just gotta have an x-ray of my pelvis to make sure the bone hasn’t been damaged from the constant grinding feeling in my hip joint when I move my leg, etc.

I’ve been prescribed some kick ass anti-inflammatory medication called Meloxicam and it’s really helping! I managed to tidy my room up and get a nice hot shower (which definitely helped my back and hip). So, now I’m gonna maybe make a cup of hot chocolate and relax while playing WoW.

(Yes, I’m aware my hair looks awful - I’m trying to grow it out so I’m back to my natural colour).

I wish you all a very Happy New Year! 🥳

Little Victories

I’m actually pretty pleased with myself today.

This morning I went and had my flu and Covid vaccines done. Then I came home and I changed my sheets and bedding, followed by a lovely hot shower, and then I wrote two pages of my novel after being stuck with writer’s block for ages. I’m a little sore after all the movement, but I got through it. All over and done with now - I can rest. 😌😴

My GP is always telling me that I should celebrate every victory - even the itty bitty ones. I’ve made myself a lovely hot chocolate with a dash of Bailey’s Original as a treat, and I’m huddled up with my fluffy hoodie on now, all cosy like.
