Well, I’ve been MIA here on the blog. The dreaded colonoscopy happened. The recovery has been rough pain-wise (it seemed to have triggered a pain flare-up) and I’ve been so exhausted from it all. The good news is that I received good news (no endometriosis found!), so I feel very thankful for that. 🙂
Other than that, life stresses have distracted me from writing regularly. I can’t believe it’s been a week since I wrote a post. Not how I wanted this week to go, but every time I thought about writing, I wanted to, yet I didn’t. I know that as an aspiring writer, that’s not a very good thing. If I stop, I might not be able to get back on the horse again.

A little update on my health, for those interested in the chronic illness part of my blog.
I’ve been going to doctor appointments like a mad woman lately. It started with a new doctor who then referred me to several other doctors, who referred me to other doctors… I’m not complaining because the first doctor took my problems seriously and I actually feel like I’m on a better path to figuring this whole mess out.

To someone that I’m part of, to someone that I miss. Dedicated to a family member. ❤
Strength, humor, wit, pure love and thoughtfulness–
That is only the beginning in describing your character.
I can’t imagine the pain you must have been in, but I know you were strong, and you taught everyone around you the beauty in that. Continue reading “YOU LIT UP EVERY ROOM”
Well, I wasn’t planning on writing another post on my health/pain today, but I felt the need to due to how the day went.
Today, I had absolutely terrible pain – the kind that makes you want to scream and/or curse repeatedly. No matter which way I moved, I hurt. All I could manage was laying on my bed and watching Breaking Bad episodes I’ve already seen before. Eventually the pain faded and currently it’s at a dull ache.
I’ve not had children, but I’ve heard that Endometriosis/Adenomyosis pain can sometimes be comparable to labor pains, and in extreme cases of those diseases, sometimes even worse than labor… I was in such agony for those couple hours, I kept wondering, how on earth do women have children? Bravery, I tell you. I don’t know exactly what labor’s like, but I do know this pain. 😦 Continue reading “PAIN REMEDIES FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS & ADENOMYOSIS PAIN”
So, as of lately, I haven’t been the swellest. I was going to say ‘wellest’, but nixed that since it’s not a word.
(This post involves Endometriosis and uterus talk.)
I found out I may have more Endometriosis lingering after having had fairly extensive surgery for it last year, and the chance at getting a partial hysterectomy for my Adenomyosis is very slim, unless I search like a mad woman through all the possible doctors, which is definitely not an appealing prospect. I can’t even remember how many different doctors I’ve seen in the past few years – heck, mainly the last year. Continue reading “A LITTLE UPDATE ON MY HEALTH”
