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

Rib Plating Surgery and Thoracic Appointments

I suppose I will just continue where I left off in my last blog, My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy, where I talked about my thoracic rib appointments. In that blog, I didn't necessarily discuss anything but thoracic issues. The rest, well, is just as chaotic. In the coming days, I will be trying to catch… Continue reading Rib Plating Surgery and Thoracic Appointments

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

Lumpy, the Ganglion Cyst, a Trilogy

Since this blog began a few years ago, I've always suffered hand pains and within the last year, I have had a ganglion cyst develop. I fell on my hands in January of 2016 and ended up tearing a ligament in my left hand. This tear went unnoticed, I thought nothing of the bruising and… Continue reading Lumpy, the Ganglion Cyst, a Trilogy

Stelara Self-Injection #1 | It Could Be Worse Blog

Well, goodness, what a crazy few weeks it has been! And my life will stay a little chaotic for the rest of this month, too. After my last blog post, No Luck of the Irish for Me, two weeks have passed and I've been running around like crazy. But here is Bilbo to get us… Continue reading Stelara Self-Injection #1 | It Could Be Worse Blog

No Luck of the Irish for Me

Its been another few weeks, but I didn't necessarily want to post back to back since my Crohn's disease anniversary blog came just days after my last full post, Always Another Appointment. And then, of course, Saturdays post happened - Getting Hopes Up To Be Let Down - and I couldn't focus on this post… Continue reading No Luck of the Irish for Me
