Saving My Life

Anything I post on here about PCOS or any other condition, is general information or information I've accumulated in my experience having PCOS or other conditions. I'm not a doctor, so nothing I say should EVER take place of a real diagnosis from your doctor. My eating plan described on this blog is one I've made for myself and I'm constantly changing it according to my body's needs.

Hey Peeps! :)

Hey guys, sorry I haven't blogged. I've been solely concentrating on getting well....and I think I'm getting closer to knowing what all of this pain crap is. I bought that *cadillac* antibiotic--it's helping. It's making a lot of pain go away--it's making the trigger points less...triggery. Ya know what I mean. I'm going to the ENT tomorrow. I will MAKE him take cultures, scope me, or scan me. I'm tired of being a really weird science experiment. It's frying my brain! lmao Hmm...I really shouldn't laugh at that huh? Well, anyhoo, all of this--since Feb. or March...I think it's all linked. I think there's an infection that's been slowly growing...causing a host of symptoms. Well, hopefully I'll find out. I'm hoping the ENT will be able to figure out exactly what's in my sinuses or whatever else is in my head that's causing all the pain. Remember months ago when I started feeling pressure in my neck and ears, pain in my tooth, and then a little pain in my jaw? Then there was the dizziness and achiness. All symptoms of TMJ--BUT, I'm thinking that's when it all started...and perhaps infection has been causing it. I've actually had time in the past few days when my teeth didn't hurt. That was amazing! I haven't chewed on the left side of my mouth in months. Yes, I do realize it sounds silly that I'd be thrilled over this, but ya just don't understand. I CHEWED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF MY MOUTH!! lol.
  I'm sorry I haven't been by to visit you guys. I've been tweeting...b/c I can do it on my phone from the comfort of my sofa....or with just a few minutes at the computer. I put updates on FB to stay in touch w/ the family units. I think it's been a good thing focusing on getting better--it's helping. So, I promise I haven't forgotten about the super sweet awards peeps have given me and I've even been given a pay it forward by Robin. I plan on doing all of it when I have time, stamina, wellness, and focus to do them. This blog will be running for a long time....I assure you. There's just been bumps in the road....I am hopeful..more hopeful than I've been in many months now. I lost a little more weight by the way. That makes like six pounds in a little over the week. I have to admit's not b/c I've been trying super hard though. I haven't been able to eat much due to the strong antibiotics---they kill my stomach even w/ the hefty probiotics! I'll keep you guys updated and I promise I'll be around soon enough---so please...and I may sound a little dumb here...please don't defriend me just b/c I haven't been around or b/c my blog has been negative lately. Everybody goes through dark times---trust me....and this is just one of mine. Don't take it personally if I haven't been by to visit....I promise it really is me...not you. I'm not sure if I can bear losing anymore of my peeps.((hugs)) Laters gators.


  1. I'm so glad you're focusing on you. We will always be here. You're an inspiration and I promise I will not whine about my days when I know what you're going through and you're such a big sweetie, it ain't fair, but then we know that about life, right? It's really how you rise to the occasion and you're an inspiration. Keep it up.

  2. not going anywhere....glad you are feeling better.
    hey, I always take a loss any way I can get it, so congrats on the loss.
    Hang in there.

  3. We have not forgotten about you either! :) Good luck with the next doc.

  4. Thanks you guys. :) I really appreciate all the love.

  5. It is a good sign that the antibiotic is working. That does indicate an infection. I hope it knocks it out.
