Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is everywhere! I've run across two Youtubers who have EDS, which is always interesting, because all of our experiences with this disorder are different. The first is Jessica Kellgren-Fozard, who has quite a few complications in addition to having to deal with the British healthcare and disability system. (Did you know, that … Continue reading YouTube EDSers!
I have a new Doctor, which is all well and fine, except that means I had to have an intake appointment. The Doctors we saw at our previous clinic kept leaving due to conflicts with administration, and we got sick of it. So, I set up an appointment with the same doctor my husband, parents, … Continue reading I Loathe Intake Appointments
I hadn't had a full out anxiety attack in months - I'm pretty aware of what things might set me off, and I'm careful to take my medications prior to expected events. So, I freak out, but I don't actually have an attack and can calm down with some work. As a side not, I'm … Continue reading Can We Please Not Do That Again: Anxiety Edition
Or something like that. I had no idea what to call this post! BUT, we're addressing my husband's gut issues!!! We have a new doctor. The other clinic we'd been seeing doctors at was aggravating their doctors enough that they were leaving after 6-12 months, and that was aggravating us. Because who likes retelling their … Continue reading Gut Issues, Revisted: The Guttening
This week we brought Tundra in to have his teeth cleaned. We did this with him in 2016 or so, but at his last check up the vets were concerned about his teeth again. So we saved up (it took a few months!), set up an appointment, and brought him in this last week. I … Continue reading Poor Tundra Got His Teeth Cleaned
My Mother-In-Law went in to get a lump checked (it was fine), and the scan they used showed that she had an aneurysm on her Basilar Artery. It's Saccular and about 1 cm in size. It has NOT burst yet. So this week will be a lot of waiting. Waiting for her to meet with … Continue reading My MIL Found an Aneurysm
I had my teeth worked on Wednesday, and it wasn't bad at all. I mean, they had to inject five times for one of them (FIVE TIMES), because it kept wearing off and I could feel it enough to try to levitate out of my seat, but that was the complicated one where the tooth … Continue reading Tooth Drilling Success?
I've been having headaches for a while, especially at the end of the day, and I thought maybe my prescription needed to be changed. I went to the eye doctor this last week. And the results is well, no, not exactly. My distance vision is about the same, and my near vision is about the … Continue reading Eye Doctor Fail, Insurance Success!
So, as some folks may know, I have rapid-cycling Bipolar I. I spent several years on disability, but I've recently reentered the workforce and gotten off of disability. When I did this, I transitioned through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and moved to a DVR Limited Term Employment position in May of 2016. In September, … Continue reading Bipolar and Working: Scheduling
(Spoiler: I talk about pooping.) I've been sick since the Friday before last, starting out mildly enough with a stomach ache and culminating this Friday with vomiting, whenever I eat, heartburn, and terrible gut pains. No body aches. No fever. I was baffled until I talked to my mother, and she reminded me that I … Continue reading EDS and the Stomach That Wouldn’t
