Entyvio Infusion #6 – The Last | It Could Be Worse Blog

Since my last post, Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018, posted around two weeks ago, like always, a lot has seemed to happen. I've been sick. I've called off work but I've also worked my ass off. I’ve had snow days and freezing nights. I've seen doctors. And more doctors. And more doctors. People in my life have… Continue reading Entyvio Infusion #6 – The Last | 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.

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

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
