2020 Visions | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

I ended 2019 with a double blog post, Colonoscopy #5 and Thoracic Follow-Up. At the end of November and beginning of December, I had been really sick, and I had been avoiding people and doing anything I could to rid myself of that cold. I had mentioned previously that I was coughing so much -… Continue reading 2020 Visions | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Colonoscopy #5 & Crohn’s Disease Updates | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

It was in November of 2017 that I had my last pill capsule endoscopy, with my last colonoscopy just months after that. I had been on Enyvio medication for my Crohn's disease at the time and I had switched to Stelara in February of 2018. Since I have been on the Stelara injections for over… Continue reading Colonoscopy #5 & Crohn’s Disease Updates | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis – Lefty | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

In my last real blog post, My Ganglion Cyst – The Tetralogy, I had mentioned my hand pain once again, as I have in many of my posts. As I have mentioned before in blog posts like Ganglionectomy, Lumpy and Bumpy, One Step Forward, I suffer from a ganglion cyst that won’t leave me be.… Continue reading De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis – Lefty | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Stelara Self-Injections 3 – 10

I know, I know. The last time I wrote a specific blog focusing on my Stelara self-injections was with my blog Stelara Self-Injection #2, and that was over a year ago. In that case, I have a lot to discuss. From injections #3 up until #10, I have gone through a lot, so you can… Continue reading Stelara Self-Injections 3 – 10

I’ve Caught This Migraine Too Late | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

It is after 3 o'clock in the afternoon and I'm back in bed. I had just gotten up around noon. My head is pounding. I've caught this migraine too late. Now I get to suffer until it goes away. It could take hours, even days. I've taken medicine. I've taken a lot of medicine. And… Continue reading I’ve Caught This Migraine Too Late | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Thoracic Thoracic seems to be another clinic that I frequent. I have suffered from rib pain for about a year now. Sudden onset of pain, with two major areas of focus on my left side. We are not 100% certain that these pains are related or not. Because there is so much to cover in… Continue reading My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

TWO MONTHS TIME | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Well, shit. It has been over a month, almost two, since my last blog post, and it'll probably be exactly two months time by the time I get this written and edited, photos added and the post uploaded. I know, I'm still slacking. I feel terrible about it. I do apologize for the delays, every… Continue reading TWO MONTHS TIME | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG
