Oh my doodlepants! Apparently I have been seriously neglecting my poor blog (and it’s like, 3 readers, lol).
That’s okay – 2016 was horrific. It was a fight, a struggle, a knocked-down-in-the-mud-and-then-get-shit-on-by-seagulls kind of year.
So far 2017 has been happily better to report!
I met my new rheumatologist last week, and she seems like she’s a great gal. She wasn’t daunted by the laundry-list of dermatomyositis, trigeminal neuralgia, fibromyalgia and myasthenia gravis.
My previous rheumatologist had the same relationship with me that scientists do with labrats… – actually, he had the same relationship with me that high investors and sleazy salesman have with the scientists labrats for some new and innovating product. He really liked me for the data that I provided for him to do various presentations and papers to his peers on dermatomyositis – seeya and thanks for all the fish!
On top of my health issues, Zed’s thyroid randomly crashed at 44 and that took most of the year to sort out…. and as an added bonus of torture, he had to go off his ADD medication until it was balanced (which ended up being the first week of January this year). So that was….. yeah… I have no clever pun to describe the hardship, pain, and…. I don’t even have words… It was like Jekyll and Hyde. I have cried a LOT of happy tears since it has been sorted out and I have gotten my husband back… and not a moment too soon – I’m not sure how much longer I could have held out…
And to top off a
shit sandwich lovely year, it ended with the 2.5 carat center stone of my engagement ring falling out on December 23 in the midst of the heaviest shopping day of the year in a Costco parking lot. Thank god for insurance – come spring time if my stone is found it will make someone a very happy and wealthy surprise! This was just after a less-than-stellar driver almost side-swiped me and left me beached on a meridian – thanks, random-crappy-driver-lady! I hope you choke on it! 😀
I mean…. I hope she had nothing but the merriest of holidays! 😀
On the bright side, 2016 did bring us another rescue kitty. I am officially a crazy cat lady.
This is Mittens (full name of Juliet Mittens – my Moms quarky naming) and a couple of a much grown Spencer ❤
Seriously – how could anyone possibly not be happy with these 2 goofballs around?!?!
Anywhoo. Unfortunately I am pretty plum out of wit today, I apologize.
2017 has already been pretty busy, and I am absolutely going to be making sure I don’t wait another year to update my blog!
