Left Wrist Issues

I’ve posted before about the ganglion cyst in my left wrist. Finally talked to the doctor about it. I need to go for x-rays to check for joint damage from arthritis. I am waiting on the call for my referral to a specialist to have to cyst removed.

It hurts. A lot. I’m pretty sure it presses on a nerve as when it gets really bad my whole hand, elbow, and shoulder hurt along with it. For the first time in a long time I am concerned about my health. I need to go back to work.

Here’s to hoping the x-ray turns out fine. I’ve been advised to wear a brace with a hard bottom until further notice.

More Cyst Issues

The ganglion cyst in my wrist isn’t as big as it ever as been but it’s big enough. It’s causing pain that can radiate all the way up to my shoulder. The pain generally hangs out around my wrist and the two lower joints of my thumb. If I try to carry the baby without some sort of wrist support it radiates out to the elbow. I really need to talk to the doctor about it. We go tomorrow for my spouse, maybe I can get in too.

,Canker/Mouth Sores – April 5th, 2017

I’m averaging two canker (or mouth) sores a month right now. This works out to at least two weeks of random excruciating pain. They don’t hurt all the time but if I hit them just right it’s awful. The most recent one is in the middle of my tongue which is a much better spot then it usually is, on the tip of my tongue. I can usually trace the irritation

Saving for later perusal.

After Narcissistic Abuse

There’s no time like the new year to create a NEW YOU after narcissistic abuse.  

in 2015 I will

With all the confusion and depression a thing of the past, we’ve got so much time and bandwidth available to us, we can have trouble knowing where to start setting goals or to decide what it is we truly want. Finally, many of us haven’t believed ourselves worthy of focus and have thus always put our desires last to everyone else in our lives; especially narcissists.

Let’s take a look at the areas of our lives we can explore when considering goals pertinent to our abusive experiences with a narcissist:

Technical Difficulty Please Stand By

I have Fibro not CFS but this totally describes my brain when things get bad.

FibroM.E.-Awesome

A couple of weeks ago, I lost my head. It happens sometimes.

I call it spaghetti brain, and it happens when I’m in a crash or when I’ve overdone it somehow. My body gives out, and then my mind follows suit. I had a stressful few weeks and my mental agility dulled until I could hardly say my own name without stumbling over it. It’s difficult to explain, but when these cognitive issues flare up,  trying to think and speak makes me feel like a car with the gas and the break petals pressed to the floor at the same time. My thoughts come fast but fragmented, my words emerge slow and tumble over each other, and half the time the wrong words come out altogether. My brain feels like it’s on fire, and so many times I’ve had to just sit in a dark quiet room to cool it down…

A Doctor’s Letter to Patients with a Chronic Disease

Pain. I Has It.

ProHealth.com/Rob Lamberts, MD/July 31, 2013

Dear Patients:

You have it very hard, much harder than most people understand.  Having sat for 16 years listening to the stories, seeing the tiredness in your eyes, hearing you try to describe the indescribable, I have come to understand that I too can’t understand what your lives are like.  How do you answer the question, “how do you feel?” when you’ve forgotten what “normal” feels like?   How do you deal with all of the people who think you are exaggerating your pain, your emotions, your fatigue?   How do you decide when to believe them or when to trust your own body?  How do you cope with living a life that won’t let you forget about your frailty, your limits, your mortality?

I can’t imagine.

But I do bring something to the table that you may not know.  I do have information that you can’t…
