    #physicalhealth #allergicreaction #Diabetes #MentalHealth
    Spent 12 hrs in the ER for a allergic reaction to something.
    Have no idea what.
    I have allergies but can't figure out what caused this. So they gave me steroids among other stuff. That caused my already high blood glucose to go higher so they had to get me insulin. Ugh. They send me home still itchy and with levels at 300 with more steroids. Told me to just eat and drink carefully.
    Now I have a follow up with my Doctor in a week and a Headache from being in the loud, overcrowded ,expensive and mostly unhelpful hallway(yep not even a room) .
    At least it wasn't the psych ward which I have PTSD from .
    Hopefully I don't need to go back.
    I dislike the system and chronic disease.
    Ok rant over.
    I am going to Sleep

    Yesterday Tomorrow Today

    Today isn't going to be a good day.
    It wasn't a great day yesterday either, but I fought through it because I try not to let my chronic illness get the best of me. Tomorrow could be a great day where I beat my chronic illness with a massive stick and imagine myself stepping on top of it like I'm the king of my body, screaming "raaaawr."
    Or it may be the other way around: my chronic condition is winning and taking control, refusing to let me do anything, including going to work and walking correctly.
    But today I am victorious. My lupus flare-up has taken over, but you know what you have to learn to be friends with it.
    Because it aint going anywhere and will be with me for the rest of my life, and it will get me down on some days and not on others.
    So proud of myself for surviving another day. #ChronicIllness #Lupus #Fibromyalgia #MultipleSclerosis #Thoughts #MentalHealth #physicalhealth

    Life’s Not Nice At Times

    Trigger Warning!!

    I lost all my friends bar one when I became psychotic and manic in 2007 and again in 2008. It was a sudden thing that happened in 2007 and the trauma of it caused the onset of my bipolar and the unblocking of memories from my early childhood. My CPN said I disassociated with it all. Although I had some memories that have always been with me. Although these memories were so weird and unfathomable. Once I had the awful reminders, I finally understood what all the other memories meant!
    Last year my last remaining friend took offence to me calling her out for not showing up without any kind of contact to let me know! She had no good reason . Even if she did have a reason she could of just kept me in the loop! I was so surprised she has ‘unfriended’ me, so’s to speak. I can’t even call her. I’m blocked! Perhaps it was just an excuse. That’s what she really wanted! We’ve been friends for over 35 years! I miss her!
    On the 29th December 2021 my bf ended our 11+ year relationship. He said he loved me on Christmas Day and then a few days later he dumped me … by text message! We weren’t arguing. Just had a small disagreement. Totally minor. He has said it wasn’t that! We had always got on so well! It still doesn’t make sense!
    So now I’m going it alone! Not quite alone as I have my son. He’s also my carer as I have several physical disabilities and disorders.
    I do have a lot of online friends from the art groups I’m in. Just would like to meet up with them. I would like a friend in the real world suppose.
    This year I’ve had and I’m still having several health scares. First my right forearm has rather large lumps .. going the full length of my forearm on one of the lumps. I also have oral problems and have had to have biopsies and scans done. I’m now being checked for ovarian cancer. To top it off nicely, my right shoulder has become so painful I can’t function. I’m being investigated to see what the problem is. Because my right shoulder is in such a state I’m unable to draw for any period of time. It’s just too painful.
    I feel like I’m being robbed of everything that gives me joy. I feel so miserable! #colouredpencilartist #wildlifeartist #Disabled #Bipolar #sexualabusesurviver #depressed #Mania #Psychosis #MentalHealth #GiantCellArteritis #AutoimmuneDisease #Osteoporosis #spondylitis #Fibromyalgia #PTSD #Flashbacks #AterialvenousMalformation
