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.
