Today was awful. I woke up at 5am with a migraine and couldn’t go to the PPP Group (more about that later) because of it. I’ve been having cold sweats all the day today, starting with the migraine. Thank God the migraine went away by about midday but the cold sweats persisted so I was a little bewildered by that. Then around 3pm terrible stomach pains set in, thanks to Crohn’s Disease. I had to go number two 7 times between 3pm and 6pm, and the rest of the time rest in the bed. At about 5pm I started to feel dizzy whenever I was up and a little later on one of those trips to the toilet found out my period had started. Which totally explained the unusually awful stomach pains, increased bowel movements, cold sweats and the dizziness and just generally feeling I was about to expire. It’s a pretty normal thing for me that the Crohn’s is a little worse the first day or two of the period. I loath periods but I suppose I should be content – it was 14 days late from the estimated start time. Now to hoping it will end like it should in 5-7 days and not keep on going. It’s near midnight now, I still feel like I might faint I’m up more than a few minutes at a time but at least the stomach pains have dulled down to a blunt ache. Fingers crossed that I won’t feel so weak or be in so much pain tomorrow because I can’t NOT go grocery shopping.
Update on my health & life & car situation behind the cut…
I have managed to misplace the last three icons I made. I really liked them! They’re not in the usual folder on my hard drive, nor where I use post my challenge entries before posting them to my site and LJ/DW.
I did them for some icon challenge community on LJ (can’t remember which) propably like couple months ago or even longer (I’m pretty sure it was this year though…), one was of Christine Chapel and one of Amanda Grayson but I can’t remember who the third one was of. I don’t think it was for a ST challenge. I can’t believe I don’t remember where I put them! This has never happened before.
I’m going in for a colonoscopy again, so I won’t be online much or at all on tomorrow Wednesday (the nasty-awful-but-got-to-do-it colon prep which takes the entire day) and Thursday (the colonoscopy day). If there are any problems with the sites starting on those two days, it won’t be until early evening Thursday earliest that I can get to it.
I’ve had non-stop migraine since about 4am Friday morning. Five days 🙁 Good thing I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow, bad thing that this will replace one of the things I made it for in the first place, delaying that thing again :/ My head is pissing me off :<
I’ve been weirdly tired again this week – a lot more so than normally. I can barely stay up for 8-10 hours before feeling like I absolutely need to get some more sleep 🙁 When I do sleep, I haven’t really woken up feeling rested and refreshed. (Not that I ever do, really, these days, but at least I feel less tired when I wake than I did when I went to sleep.) Incidentally, Crohn’s symptoms have been a little worse this week too. Just had a big battery of blood test 3-4 weeks ago, and hemoglobin was okay… not great, but okay, unless there’s been drastic change in it, that shouldn’t be it.
Been getting back to fanlistings a little bit.Managed to integrate Enthusiast and WordPress so I can show collective pages (Joined, Owned) through WordPress 😀 http://magical.crystalfires.net/
Apparently there’s no Jeri Ryan fanlisting anymore… though I could swear I came across it a few weeks ago, still owned by the person whom I adopted it out to. But it isn’t listed at TFL anymore. Been trying to track down the URL, but it’s not in my e-mails and google only seems to come up with the URL it had while I owned it *sigh*
Looks life the insomnia might finally be relenting – out of last 16 days, I’ve been able to sleep on 14 😀 And most of the time on nights too like normal people 🙂 I still wake up too easily in the middle but I’ve been able to get back to sleep again when I do wake up. Weirdly enough, it started relenting almost immediately after I made my last health update post here and mentioned the insomnia in it. Maybe it helped to say it out loud? Although I’ve been telling about it to a few family and friends in RL since the start so don’t know why telling about it on internet would help… but yeah, I’m cautionally optimistic about this 🙂 Maybe this problem won’t need seeing a doctor after all 😀
Thought I’d do a health update – I don’t think I’ve done one since I got home from the hospital in February. Better get this down now, when still I remember everything what’s been going on since February…
I’m still in the hospital, and don’t know when I’ll be released.
I can now confirm, that the big thing was/is my liver accompanied by a few other smaller things. Seems I’ve started recovering now though because my liver vitals improved a lot over the weekend.
There are still some liver related tests and biopsy results pending, and I guess they want to wait for those because the usual things that they look for first came up all clear, and now checking for other possible causes. So there’s no diagnosis yet.
So, heading to right direction at the moment but not out of the woods yet.
