The New Killer Drug? 🤔

The New Killer Drug? 🤔

Can I just start off by saying that I love my doctor? 🙌🏾 She’s quick, to the point, but is very attentive and actually listens to what I have to say (unlike some doctors I’ve come across through this journey).🙄

I had my yearly physical today. My doctor asked me have I seen any specialists since the last time I’ve seen her. Told her yes, a neurologist. Of course, she asked what made me go see him (my insurance doesn’t require a referral, so I didn’t have to go through her to see him). After going through the whole story, I ended it with, “and that’s how I found out I have fibromyalgia.” I told her the medication he put me on gave me terrible side effects (there were a couple but, the biggest side effect that I didn’t like was that it made my brain fog like 1000 times worse normal), so I stopped. She looked up the medication he prescribed and said: “ahhh no wonder.” 💡 Continue reading “The New Killer Drug? 🤔”


Sweating In The Middle of Winter

Sweating In The Middle of Winter

Last night was about 45 degrees. But, even still, I slept with the windows open, the fan on, and under the blankets because I sweating but still cold. I didn’t have a fever, I checked. It had to be really cold because Polo, who is prone to over-heating (it’s a shih Tzu thing), was completely under the blankets. Sorry Polo! Since I slept in an ice box half the night, I didin’t get much sleep, and of course I woke up being a little congested and extra tired this morning.

It’s not winter here yet but, it’s now starting to feel like it’s moving in that direction. After weeks of saying “are we sure it’s October”, the weather has finally broke and we are now experiencing fall weather.

I hate winter. It’s not even here and I’m already wishing it would go away. Winter is the season when I experience the most fluctuation of my body temperature. Continue reading “Sweating In The Middle of Winter”

“I’m Proud Of You”

I had about 6 ideas in my head for a post. I actually started drafting one up yesterday but, didn’t get to finish since I was hanging out with my family. When I woke up this morning, this post came to me and I knew I had to write this one instead.

I’m surrounded by people who are succeeding in life and have major accomplishments. My cousin has her PhD and she just bought a house. My friend is soon to be graduating with her PhD next year, is getting ready to buy a house, and just got to the “I love you” stage in her relationship. My sister has a house, a husband/family, and is about to graduate with her master’s within the next 2 months.

Here I am a couple of months shy of 28 and I don’t have a college degree, I don’t own a house, and I don’t have a man (or even a potential). I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything. I remember having a conversation with my grandmother a while ago. She was saying how my one cousin was having a baby, my other cousin just got married, and my other cousin was buying a house. And in my mind I was like “What in the hell am I doing? Absolutely nothing.” Continue reading ““I’m Proud Of You””
