I’m sorry it’s been so long since posting, but as you can imagine, moving overseas is a big job. Add in several chronic conditions, and it’s been a very difficult couple of months for me. My husband and I are mostly settled in now though. We are living with my parents until we are able… Continue reading Sasha: The Service Dog
Last summer, our lease was up on our little one bedroom flat. My husband and I looked at each other, and we realised that we had been here for much longer than we had ever anticipated. So, we started to talk. We talked about our options. Did we want to stay? Did we want to… Continue reading A Bittersweet Move
Its been a while since I’ve done an update, so here I go! Gastro Consultant At the start of the month, I saw a new gastroenterologist. This was a more specialised clinic, headed by a doctor who knows a lot about motility disorders. The doctor thinks that my dysmotility is also affecting my bowels as… Continue reading An Update- 03/18
The theme of the last couple of weeks seems to be pain. I have been dealing with extra pain with my neck and arm, and of course my stomach likes to remind me that it’s there too. Then, last week, I woke up with a blinding pain in my back. It goes down into my… Continue reading What a Pain!
The last few months, I’ve had a lot of appointments, so I thought I’d do an update for you. Since they found that I have increased thyroid antibodies, I was sent to an endocrinologist. The endocrinologist and I discussed not only the risks and issues surrounding the antibodies (my thyroid numbers are currently in range),… Continue reading An Update- 12/17
Hi all! I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to write in the last few weeks. In October, my husband and I went on a trip to Canada to visit my family and friends. Upon returning, I was hit with extreme fatigue, migraine, and a virus. I’m working through a stomach flare now too, but… Continue reading A Trip Home to Canada
This has been quite a busy week for me! I woke up Sunday night with a big migraine, so that meant I was out of commission on Monday. On Tuesday, I still felt miserable, but I had to somehow drag myself out of bed to shower so that I could attend my endocrinologist appointment. The… Continue reading A Weekly Update- 17-23/09/17
This has been a very long week! It’s been very fitting that this week kicked off Gastroparesis Awareness Month as my stomach has dominated this week. On Monday, I was due to get for Botox treatment my gastroparesis. Just a couple hours before we were about to leave, I got a phone call saying that… Continue reading A Weekly Update- 30/07-05/08/17
As I had a couple of doctor appointments this week, I thought I’d simply write an update to catch you all up! On Monday, I saw my GP. One of the things we discussed was my referral to see a neurologist. After my last neurologist appointment, it was agreed that I should be referred to… Continue reading A Weekly Update- 04-10/06/17
Several months ago, my husband decided to put his provisional license to use (the one he’d had since he was a teenager) and start driving lessons. He grew up on the outer edge of London, and didn’t particularly need to drive to get around. When he started working, his job was easily accessible by train,… Continue reading A New Car Equals New Freedom!
