  • A new chapter in life…

    It’s been a tough emotional weekend which I really don’t want to get into too many details about, but it has resulted in me moving in with my Aunt and her two kids and my parents taking Max for now.

    They are coming up this coming weekend to help me pack up my stuff and they are taking it home. As you can probably guess. Cory and I have decided to break up. I am moving out.

    I am not gonna get into details right now. I don’t want it coming out like I blame him because I don’t. It’s just one of those things that happen I guess. I am trying to keep it together and so far feel I am doing a fairly good job. Considering I am currently sitting on a single bed in a Tinkerbell room at my Aunt’s lol wondering where the hell everything went wrong.

  • I seriously can’t believe our luck, or lack thereof.

    I’m at a complete loss. A couple of months ago a guy backed into our car in the parking lot of a grocery store. Cory and I were inside getting groceries. The guy left a note with his phone number and said he was sorry.

    I called him and got his insurance information and called my insurance company to file a claim. A few days later a claims adjuster was assigned and I took my car to a collision center and they sent a quote to the adjuster and an appointment was made to have the car fixed.

    Now two and a half years earlier a woman backed up into my old car in my apartments parking lot. I was with a different insurance company at the time and I decided to have the claim paid out as it was minor and I chose not to have the car fixed. Which we are allowed to do here. I never had any issues and was with that same company up till this past December.

  • 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.

  • Feeling the pain…

    I am so tired and frustrated right now. Last week I worked Monday through Thursday. On Friday I went in but got VTO and went home before my shift started. The weekend started off good. Went on a drive Friday night with Cory and then Saturday Cory and I and my friend Erin went on a long drive. It turned out to be a big mistake I think. As much as I love being in the car my body does not like it at all.

    Sunday I was not feeling the greatest. I had a headache and was sore all over but Cory’s parents wanted to go for a drive so I went with them. By the time I got home around suppertime I went to bed. I woke up Monday morning with another (or the same) bad headache and I felt stiff and sore all over. I thought I was coming down with something so I stayed home. I slept most of the day.

  • Spring where are you? I’m ready for you.

    I am at my parents place for the weekend. I traveled down after work last night for the weekend since I have not been home since American Thanksgiving in November. I am happy to be home. While I was here I decided to see if I could get my nails done. The result:

  • 200th post! + More vertigo and pain.

    So my last post was number 200 since March 12th, 2013 when this blog first started. I honestly can’t believe I have had that many. 200 posts in 2 years. Definitely doesn’t work out to one a day, one every 3-4 days maybe? I don’t know… Math’s not my strong point

    I started the blog a while back to keep track of my symptoms and journey after being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Vertigo. I would love to say they are completely under control. They were for about a year, but the last few months they have been back. I just haven’t been blogging much about them.

    It started back around August of 2014. When I got sick with that cough and they thought I had whooping cough. In the last 7 months my vertigo seems to have been slowly coming back and now it is bad enough that I am loosing my balance and falling again and getting nauseous.
