Here we go again!

So, I might just as well start by grossing you all out and tell you that I think I saw some “visitors” in the toilet .. the flukey kind (in the line-up above or beside depending on what device you’re looking at this on… that’s him there… the one on the far right… the sneaky…

And So It Goes

I know I haven’t posted in QUITE a while – I fear I’m not really that interesting anymore … same old ups and downs. It’s been an “interesting” couple of months but nothing really worth sharing.  I did however send my family an email on Monday that everyone seemed to get a chuckle out of,…

Iron…On Again, Off Again

So … it’s been a while since I’ve provided an update … was hoping with the Synthroid adjustment and addition of Iron supplements that I’d be feeling better by now and I’d be able to write with news of improvement … unfortunately that’s not the case. I’ve been feeling increasingly more lousy and more tired…

Update

Okay … where to start? How about … UGH!? Dermatologist – as I figured the appointment yesterday was a colossal waste of time. Since I have my rash under control there’s not much they can say other than – “you likely have a-topic dermatitis” – the most generic diagnosis on the planet for red itchy…

WARNING! Low Battery

Hello all … sorry for the delay, but I’ve been waiting to write this until all my lab results were finally in from last weeks doctors visit. I had the blood drawn last Monday, got some results back Tuesday, Doc’s office called Wednesday morning to tell me I have Thyroid antibodies present again and that…

Fed Up … Again!

Okay … so, the last you heard from me I was feeling all positive and up-beat. Yeah … not so much the last while. Out of the blue for no apparent food-related reason I started feeling “not right” again. Something’s just been off. Pain in the upper abdomen after eating, not feeling particularly like I…

We’ve Come a Long Way … Baby(steps)

It’s a New Year! I made it! 🙂 I figure this is as good a time as any to give you all an update and reflect on how far I’ve come. I know it’s been a couple of weeks since my last post, so I’ll address that first! The mumps lasted about a week –…

Time for a Mumpdate

Mumpdate?  Yes … Mump-date …. as in MUMPS!!! It’s been a while, so I figured I should make reading my blog worth your while … decided getting the mumps should do the trick! I hope you’re all duly entertained! UGH! Went to bed last night with a small aching pain near my ear / jaw…

Seriously?

Wow … I think I’m speechless … well, not quite, but you know what I mean! I just got a call from my doctor’s office … remember my “Little Miss Angry” post from a week or two ago? Yeah … so they booked me an appointment with a “dermatologist” …. it’s not until February 12th,…

Happy Sickaversary To Me!

Sickaversary … yup … that’s a thing 😉 Exactly 1 year ago today I already knew something wasn’t right and I took things into my own hands … jumped down my first rabbit hole and started the Ultimate Candida diet …. which led me to the metabolism plan … but it was already too late…

The Cure WILL Kill Ya!

Ok – just had to give you all a quick update … while we wait for me to miraculously heal my liver or something!  Since the newbie doctor kept pushing me to simply use the Steroid prescription cream for my rash, I thought I might need to take her advice since the rash was coming…

Poor Little Liver

Okay – I know I’ve talked about my liver before, but I’ve decided to revisit it since my hormones are apparently “normal” … basically I’m back to assuming that my rash is liver-related, since we’ve “sort-of eliminated” hormonal involvement (though we’ll never know unless I get a dermatologist appointment who will then have to send…
