Chronic Illness

September 10, 2015

So I’ve been absent again from the blog. I actually have so many fun things I should write to share. But right this moment I need to write about illness. As I’m struggling and it’s on my heart. Here’s my thoughts…

Umm. So I’ve had an extremely rough night. I’ve barely slept. Hurting from head to toe. So confused as to what to do. Chronic Illness is a huge battle. If a “normal” person felt this way they’d absolutely call/go into their dr. But for patients like me, we pretty much just hunker down and try to fight thru it, knowing your dr will be little to no help. It’s super hard to have multiple issues going on at once, waiting for specialist appointments, and in the meantime trying to just see your primary care physician and explain your every ache and pain and just wanting some help getting relief. 

Right now I’m in a constant state of stomach pain and nausea, and about 90% of the time in severe pelvic pain from the endometriosis and interstitial cystitis. And then now I’m having a whole body flare of pain from head to toe (possible fibromyalgia or RA).

When you have this much pain going on you literally can’t sleep and it’s just easier to get back up and try to keep your mind busy and distracted from every pain. I’ve taken all the meds I can for now with little relief. 

I say all of this not for attention, but to hopefully open people’s minds to others suffering. It’s my hope that my story can help healthy people support and understand those less fortunate (health-wise) and bring support and encouragement to others walking through health trials as well. 

I’m off now to attempt for some more rest.
