Хочу впасть в спячку до весны, а ещё лучше до лета.. тёплая постель не отпускает каждое утро и я с трудом вытаскиваю себя из неё и иду по делам. Так у всех или только у меня? #mylife#me#autumn#warmbed#thoughts#fatigue
So I've had a rough couple of days here in my bod. It's difficult when you Google any of your main everyday symptoms and the first thing you're told is GO TO THE ER. But we have grown used to that. Now we only go when we get a new symptom, which for the last few days has been deep radiating left arm pain to accompany my chest/abdomin pain. My usual tricks to ease symptoms weren't working and we were advised to go in, so yesterday night was spent like this. This was not my favorite visit to the ER, with about 9 tries to reach my veins and being forced to do a CAT scan despite my bad reaction to the blood dye that I had a few months ago. They ended up drugging me so that I would comply to the scan, which I'm glad I did for peace of mind's sake. ***POSITIVES***
*Nothing urgently wrong, just another piece to the puzzle and some suggestions of specialists to see next!
*Reaction to CAT scan meds was not as bad as last time since I knew what to expect, so now I have less anxiety about that for sure.
*Cody was able to be my advocate and his thoughts be taken seriously now that he's my husband (it was romantic)
*Confirmation that my high liver enzymes have officially gone down.
Instagram has surprisingly been my greatest source of hope/info when it comes to the long mystery diagnosis process of chronic illness. It's such an easy way to find people with similar symptoms to my own and learn about the path they have taken towards diagnosis. So I have decided to start putting myself out there a little more to join in the *discussion*. 💕
