I’m currently tweaking my blog and adding a couple pages to it.
But Most importantly,
I’ve added a support section on my <3 tab that will include blogs of people who suffer from illnesses such as Lupus, Fibromyalgia, IBS, Gilbert’s Syndrome, & Celiac Disease.
(Please reply to this if you’d like to be included on that list. I’m making this in mind for people that need/want someone to relate/talk to. I just want people to know that they are NOT alone. I personally have come across some amazing people who have helped me change my perspective of living with these ailments. )
I know quite of a few tumblers that that are living with these invisible illnesses but I certainly dont want to put you on blast with out permission, so please let me know if you’re willing to accept messages/questions from other fellow suffer-ers. <3
Hope all of you are well and even better, in remission <3
Crush a bit, little bit, roll it up, take a hit
Feelin’ lit feelin’ light, 2 am summer night.
I don’t care, hand on the wheel, drivin drunk, I’m doin’ my thang

Imma do just what I want lookin’ ahead no turnin’ back

if I fall if I die know I lived and missed some bullets.
Medical Marijuana, the cure for all my ailments.
(Fibromyalgia, Lupus/SLE, & IBS)

So, due to the fact that I can not sleep I feel the need to catch up on the happenings in my life.
(because, it is my blog after all and what else is it good for?)
1. The Colonoscopy & Endoscopy went well. The prep for it was awful. The laxative/body flush tasted like liquid death and not eating for two days SUCKED. But I’m glad I was forced to flush out my system, it was good for my overall well being I like to think. (Oh and the results were mostly negative though they think I might have Celiac Disease/A Gluten Alergy so I’m on a gluten free diet)
2. They found out I have Fibromyalgia, IBS, and Gilbert’s Syndrome. So that’s just wonderful. (But hey! It could always be worse! )
Fibromyalgia, for those of you that don’t know, is a common syndrome in which a person has long-term, body-wide pain and tenderness in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia has also been linked to fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, depression, and anxiety. Hoorah!
Gilbert’s Syndrome produces an elevated level of unconjugated bilirubin in the bloodstream but it normally has no serious consequences. Mild jaundice may appear under conditions of exertion, stress, fasting, and infections. Other symptoms include fatigue, difficulty maintaining concentration, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, loss of weight and more.
IBS is a disorder that leads to abdominal pain and cramping, changes in bowel movements, and other symptoms.
And then there’s the Lupus on top on all of that.
So yeah, that’s mah life. Sounds like a shit-ton of fun huh?
