I just noticed that I hadn’t posted here since last October. I don’t think I’ve ever let that much time slip by before. So, I thought I’d pop on and give a little update. Since October, much of my life has looked like this:
It happens about as quick as the flipping of a light switch too. Talk about fun when you are trying to finish dinner before passing out, eh? Haha.
I’ve mentioned before how I started getting sick two years ago thanks to the onset of adult allergies. The gist is, I’m allergic to EVERYTHING. Yep. For me, it causes chronic migraines, sinus infections, nose bleeds, and extreme exhaustion. Fun!
I was undergoing treatment in October, but that’s when everything got worse. Ragweed season hit and my meds had to be upped just to keep me from having daily migraines. By Winter, my doctor had decided that I needed to start up with allergy shots. I had no clue what I was really getting into there. Oy. Between the shots and the pollen, Spring was about the worst it’s ever been for me. Most days I’d wake with eyes swollen shut and I’d have to take meds just to get my eyes open. All my energy had to be put into making it through the work day.
What’s frustrated me the most through this process has been how it affected words. Talking, reading, writing…it all got very hard. And since I post on public accounts for work, you can imagine my concern there. No worries. I had stuff proofread. Haha. It also got in the way of my working out regularly. I almost fell asleep mid-jumping jack!
So life, for the most part, went on hold.
But now it’s Summer. I’m still not done with my shots, but I am finally starting to feel more like myself again. My thoughts feel way less fuddled. And that has me tentatively excited. I’m starting to schedule in more things (like photography classes – yay!) and finally starting to work on developing a food blog that I’ve been wanting to do for years. I also want to get back to working out. I just stopped typing for a minute so I could set my running shoes by the door. Maybe that will inspire me to go for a jog when I wake tomorrow. Hope so!
Anyway, that’s that. As my health continues to improve, I’m sure I’ll be chattier again. Have a fabulous evening! :)
