A Story About A Girl

Valley, The Lookoff & Cape Split

Today (well as it is after midnight technically it was yesterday) Edward and I hiked Cape Split in Scott’s Bay, Nova Scotia. It is 8 km each way out and back which turns out to be a 4-5 hour hike. It took us 4 hours and roughly 15 minutes. It was a beautiful but exhausting walk/hike. Neither of us had ever done it before. We love walking and hiking but have only every really done easy ones. This is classified by the provincial park system as a moderate hike. Now I know why. Wow was it ever long!

We started out at a place called The Lookoff which was on the road to Cape Split. I have taken pictures there before but not for a long time. You can see the whole Annapolis Valley from The Lookoff.

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. [...]  READ MORE

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. [...]  READ MORE
