A lot can happen in two weeks.

I can’t believe it has been more then 2 and a half weeks since I last posted. Sometimes the time goes by so fast! A lot has happened in the last two weeks. I started Lyrica a bit more then 2 weeks ago. I spent a week so sick feeling that I missed the whole week of work. I guess that was mostly from Lyrica. I had really bad vertigo, plus regular old dizziness and nausea. I spent most of it in bed. When I sat up my world rocked (and not in a good way). I felt like I was on a ship swaying from side to side, then the spinning started.

It reminded me a lot like when I was sick before. Only this time I knew it was medication induced. After about a week it stopped. I am supposed to get blood work done and have a follow up appointment 10 days from my last one but I have not got the blood work or scheduled the appointment yet. I need to soon as he only gave me 30 days and I have have taken 18 already. Gotta get my ass in gear.

I ended up at the hospital last Monday. I took the day off cause I still was not feeling well and I also had an abscess on he underside of my left breast. I am guessing it was from the under wire in by bra. It started out just being a small sore then it filled with puss and you get the idea I am sure. Monday I had to go get it drained and they gave me IV anti-biotics on top of the ones I was already taken. It is not gone but it looks and feels a lot better. It was in such a bad place and it hurt so much.

While I was at the doctors the last time he mentioned something called polymyositis after I mentioned having issues swallowing and having issues with muscle weakness. I can not get out of a chair without using my arms, my legs alone are too week. He said those were not signs of Fibromyalgia really. It’s really uncommon so I am thinking it is not that but he said he was going to add it to the possible/suspected diagnosis to send to the Rheumatologist which I have been referred to. He said that a muscle biopsy would confirm it if it is that and if not then it may be related to Fibromyalgia. The list of issues just keeps growing. It’s kind scary.

On a lighter note, guess what? I finally found the Canon EOS Rebel T5 on the Dell.ca website today. So I decided to apply and see if I could get financing and I got approved! So I bought it! I am so excited and happy. I really wanted a DSLR and now I will finally have one! I was looking at the Canon EOS 70D but it was almost double the price and I really should start with a more entry-level instead of mid-range one. Since I really don’t know what I am doing. I am told I take good pictures but I have very little knowledge and no training. I am told by friends and family that have a Canon EOS Rebel that they are really easy to use and learn on. So I am hoping for the best!

I am going to take some time before it arrives to read the user guide and see what other resources I can find. It also comes with 2 lenses, an EF-S 18-55mm IS II and an EF 75-300mm III lense. I also need to find a decent editing software. Any suggestions? I know the obvious is Photoshop but anyone know of anything else? Free would be great I may also set up a photo blog. I am having a hard time writing every day but maybe some sort of daily or weekly photo blog would be good.

    Have fun with your new camera. I’ve thought about doing a photo blog. Or at least go back to posting a photo post once a month. But I really havn’t been taking that many photos lately.

    1. Thanks Deanna. I am hoping I can keep it up. I might look for some photography challenges or something.

  2. Polymyositis sounds scary, I hope they’ll find out it’s because of the fibro. Fibro can give so many different symtoms.
    Yay for the new camera!!! Have fun and explore it all you can. Don’t stay in auto mode.

    1. It does sound scary. I’m sure its not that. Hope so anyways.

      I definitely won’t stay in auto mode, never did in my old camera either. Can’t wait to get it and play around!!!
