It has been a long time since I have done anything on the website, let alone blog. Life has given us plenty of twist and turns over the past 6 months that it is hard to even know where to start. I guess the best place would be why I have remained dormant for so long. Which also happens to be the reason that I have to learn how to live in this new role I have been given.
Funny, Last year at this time I was only complaining of the bottom of my feet hurting around my heels. Little did I know that was a early sign of what would later become a new life long companion. Peripheral Neuropathy. Unless you know someone who is diabetic, chances are that you haven’t heard of it before. I know, I had no clue what PN ( peripheral neuropathy ) was. After I was diagnosed I spent the next few weeks researching the heck out of it. None of what I found looked promising. This was something I was going to have to live with for the rest of my life.
March 14th, 2015.~ After that last line I stopped writing, and honestly I don’t know how far I am going to get with this go around, seeing as I have already taken my meds for this evening. A bunch of stuff has happened in the medical aspect of my life, yet I am still no closer to finding out why I have PN. I have gone through blood test, MRIs, CT, more blood test and even more blood test. All have came back normal. Well except for the last CT scan, that found an ovarian cyst. That led me to schedule a visit with my gynecologist.
The Endometrosis is back. Along with another cyst. I am scheduled to have a total hysterectomy on the 27th. That is going to be fun. Yet, funny thing, I really am not all that worried about going through surgical menopause. I mean, sure some of the symptoms are really going to suck, but at least I know what the end game is going to look like. There is no mystery to what is happening with my body. My uterus and ovaries are going to be removed. I will no longer be able to psychically have children ( Thank Jehovah! I love my kids, but being pregnant is right up there with PN). I will go through the “Change”, which every single woman has to do anyway. Some just a little sooner then others.
The PN is a completely different beast. There is nothing in the world that can even begin to describe the way I feel every single day. Yet that is for a different post. It has already taken me to long to write this. Maybe once I figure out how Dragon Natural Speaking works I will start posting more regularly. But for now, I am signing off.
