Looking the Pain Bitch in the Eye

In all my time of living with pain, I’ve been rather lucky. I’ve not had the struggle of finding a decent doctor, nor have I been denied pain meds when in need. Many of those with chronic pain diseases have been denied medications and emergency care given with attitude. I have been very lucky. I’ve seen a few doctors that didn’t do a damned thing for the reason I was …

I hate my bitch and I said FUCK

Good evening everyone who visits my page and reads my blog entries. Normally I keep these as upbeat and positive as possible. No matter the amount of pain I am in, or how upset I may be I keep this as positive as I am able.  Why? I do not want to ever be seen as weak or whining. I do not want to depress or upset others. I want …

Pelvic Monster Slayer

  Sitting in my sofa recliner enjoying one of my favorite evening shows, Grey’s Anatomy, the kids are watching with me, it’s a nice family hour to spend together. I have the foot rest kicked out, leaning back just a little with my favorite purple-orange fuzzy blanket snuggled up over me. I am hit with a sudden wave of nausea out of no where.

A bit of an update.

Interstim….

  Okay, so last I left you I was having hydro distention done for IC. I had the procedure and did not get the help I was hoping for. So now on to the next surgery, which is a two part procedure. First, I will be put in a twilight sleep and leads will be placed in my lower back (S-3) and attached to the sacral nerve. Then they will be hooked …

I stood, I fought, I won.

  Dr appointment today with endometriosis and interstitial cystitis team. Incisions from surgery look great. All are closed, healed very well and not huge scars. Not that it matters, I wear my scars like badges of honor. Many years I fought this battle against endo without knowing it was the reason for all my pain and health issues with anemia. Three years ago I started fighting endo with knowledge of …

Recovery, On The Way

(published before it was finished and this was two weeks ago)   Hello, I know, I know, it’s been rather quiet on here, and all my social media platforms.  Recovery has been very different than I expected. We expected some bumps along the way due to my odd system of being allergic to everything. I have also been dealing with the emotional aspects as well as physical. Surgery is never …
