Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018 | It Could Be Worse Blog

15 days since my last blog post, Colonoscopy #5 and I got to start the new year sick.  After the Christmas and New Years celebrations, the past few days I've been miserably sick. Christmas Eve evening and Christmas day were spent with family, but I only had those two days off, working both before and… Continue reading Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018 | It Could Be Worse Blog

Seeing All of the Doctors | It Could Be Worse Blog

It has been three weeks, almost four, since my last post and I feel as though it has been chaos. Let me catch you up... October and Halloween came and went and now we are nearing the middle of November, with the cold weather and early sunsets, this year can't be over soon enough.

Optometry and Friday the 13th — Weeks 41 & 42 | It Could Be Worse Blog

Since my last post, Entyvio Infusion #4, my body hurt almost immediately afterward. My joints already ache, but I was suffering nausea and my body felt no good. I tried to sleep and I would wake in pain. The next few days I was useless, not even doing my face or hair until early the… Continue reading Optometry and Friday the 13th — Weeks 41 & 42 | It Could Be Worse Blog

Entyvio Infusion #4 – Week 39 & 40 | It Could Be Worse Blog

Pain. Last blog post I focused on my body pains and Allodynia and not much changed for me this week. I've had pain every day. I wake up, if I'm lucky enough to fall asleep in the first place, and I'm immediately in discomfort. I wake, and urgency follows, with cold sweats, body shakes, the works.… Continue reading Entyvio Infusion #4 – Week 39 & 40 | It Could Be Worse Blog

Allodynia – Weeks 37 & 38

Allodynia. A few times I've mentioned suffering from allodynia, thinking I needed a diagnosis of it. I had moments, even days of pain. But this pain is not like normal pain. Allodynia, meaning other pain, can cause all over body pain where even the slightest touch can ache you. Wearing a t-shirt can feel uncomfortable,… Continue reading Allodynia – Weeks 37 & 38

Entyvio Infusion #3

Well, again, I'm a slacker. Another two weeks have come and gone. And what takes up my time? Sundays used to be for music, but my Summer of Sundy has officially ended, sadly. My twin and her family came into town this week, bringing herself and her husband, his ex-wife and all of their 4… Continue reading Entyvio Infusion #3
