I feel like I've been gone for ages. A lot of life happened, we finally found a place to live, the virus pandemic got worse, there was a bit of a delay before we could move in, but we eventually managed it. We were initially told we wouldn't have internet until June, because nobody was … Continue reading We moved house again
https://open.spotify.com/track/3FY4wCXHbQe5S5jAFNbAXr?si=dJTP7bFATqCgQcnDnywM3w Are you hearing this all the time? Because I am. I got slagged-off on the grapevine the other week for advising people on Facebook to wash their hands and stay calm. Apparently this is "telling people what to do." I mean, regardless of what I type anywhere, you are still free to be … Continue reading Viruses are scary and that’s OK
This month has been very busy and exhausting. We've also all been a bit ill in a different way. I had a fever and some mad confusion, Will got a sore throat, my sister-in-law was sick and it looks like my mother-in-law might have got C. diff from work! So really not a smooth time … Continue reading Christmas catch-up
Recently I've felt like there's not enough space in my head. When my injections wear off I end up with constant background migraines which cause a lot of head burning, and an intense swelling feeling, along with nausea and visual disturbances, even if I'm not crying and vomiting like I would be during a main … Continue reading Headspace
This is mostly gonna be about my mouth issues. I've got an update about my actual mouth that I'm slightly concerned about. I've pixellated parts of this photo because apparently it didn't occur to me not to eat a cereal bar before checking my teeth via photos. Not only is there visible pus on … Continue reading Wisdom woes
Frankly I think this weekend wanted to see how far it could push us before we shot ourselves. I had the yearly painful anniversary of something that I gave myself the day to cry about and lose my mind over. I woke up from a nap on Thursday afternoon with ridiculous pain in the right … Continue reading 3rd molars are bullshit; change my mind
I went to the hospital yesterday and had another dose of migraine Botox. I felt it wearing off around a month ago, meaning that I need to get doses every other month, as my previous one was in December. My headaches were getting longer and more severe around February 18th, and things like nausea and … Continue reading My 3rd migraine Botox
I said at the end of my last post that the reasons I gave for not killing myself were bollocks. Aside from the not having an accessible method that won't end terribly part. That was true, I did something I had access to doing and it did, in fact, end terribly. There is very frank talk … Continue reading You do not want to overdose.
Onabotulinum toxin A has once again come through for me. I finally had my second dose of migraine injections. The waiting period was still a couple of hours, but I was taken into a ward bay straight away and I came prepared this time, I didn't have too bad of a headache so I got … Continue reading The miracle of nerve toxins
Almost three weeks by the time I'm actually writing this. It's fun being married. I know not a lot actually changes day to day, but there's a weird undercurrent of contentment. As I said before, we love all our presents, but the biggest news is probably that we have a dishwasher! It's not a cure-all … Continue reading Two weeks married!
