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

A little update

I am so glad that blogging daily was not on my list of new years resolutions. That would have been a fail right off the bat! No posts in 15 days. I did not even reply to any comments. It’s not like I was too busy. I just sometimes can not get up the energy to turn on the computer after spending 8-10 hours a day on it at work. I know in this day in age most of us work daily on computers. But sometimes I just want a break. So I took one, without even really thinking about it.

Not much has gone on in the last 2 weeks anyways. We now have snow on the ground that does not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. I have now realized how incredibly stupid it is not to have snow tires on my car. No I did not have an accident. But I feel like I might as well be in a tobaggan (like those olympic style ones) rather then a car. I am getting used to it and don’t mind driving on ice or hard packed snow but slushy snow scares the crap out of me and I hold my breath whenever Cory has the car. He is a good driver, so I really don’t need to be, he has only ever had one accident but he also is inexperienced compared to me.

Works going okay. I am working overtime this week. Just an extra hour a day but it is an odd shift, it was 11:15 am to 7:15 pm. I took an extra hour before so 10:15 am to 7:15 pm. I even went to the gym yesterday with Kristy (sister-in-law). Tomorrow is Friday and I am happy I have made it to the end of the week with some energy to spare. I plan on going skating at the Oval downtown which is an outdoor oval rink that was made for winter games a few years ago. I went last weekend and Erin and I went around twice. Doesn’t seem like much but it was 1 more time then the week before which was our first time going. My skates are old (15 years or so) but since they were hardly warn they are not that bad. Only problem with them is I (or someone else maybe…) put them away wet and the blade has some rust. I am going to look into a new pair next year or new blades. This year I just had them sharpened and hoped for the best. I made it around without falling. Then again I used to figure skate for over 12 years so it’s like getting back on a bike…right? [...]  READ MORE

Round two

I don’t know where to start but want to keep people update and am still hoping for some ideas, comments or suggestions on what I should do next if this keeps happening. I really am a bit lost. And I really need to get this figured out ASAP. Is there something important I am missing? Or that they are overlooking?

And sorry another super long post. And I promise I will visit some blogs tomorrow if I do not end up at the hospital again.

I left work by ambulance because of the same thing as Monday, only it was worse. I spent the morning alternating between coughing and struggling for air, it got worse about 30 min of taking my inhaler (Ventolin) and I got really itchy and my hands feet went numb again. I let a couple of coaches know and they called an ambulance. [...]  READ MORE
