Goodbye 2022 πŸ‘‹

Hello all my fantabulous WP Dudes! It’s been a while since I’ve been to my blog, and after this, it’s probably gonna be a while longer.

The Cuckoo at the Casa has been next level! Ben being home on Winter Break has been the usual mix of noise, chalk dust and broken things. Added to that is Daughter being bedridden with edema in both legs so bad that she can’t walk… clueless doctorsπŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ She sees a new doctor on the fourth… fingers crossed he has answers.

I’ve got a new wrinkle in my own health woes. A couple actually. My pain clinic has had trouble getting the medication to fill my Intrathecal Pain Pump the past two months, and it has gone completely dry for +/- a week both times.

I also seem to be developing Psoriatic Arthritis. I have Placque Psoriasis already, so I expected the arthritis to eventually follow. My ankle swelled and turned purple again around the first of October and it’s still swollen and purple. My primary “isn’t concerned”πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I’ll be seeing a Rheumatologist at the end of March, meanwhile I’m eating ibuprofen like candy. The Methotrexate doesn’t seem to be doing any good yet. I’m on the lowest dose, but it still kicks my butt for 36-48 after I take it.

Anyway… I’m still around. I haven’t given up on blogging for good. I’m just so fried from taking care of Ben and Daughter that I can’t think straight. It has been pretty rough. Daughter has gotten very needy with this whole thing.

This wasn’t supposed to be a “Poor Me” post. I don’t feel that way. I’m still in good shape mental health wise. A little ragged around the edges, but I think there’d be something seriously wrong if I wasn’t. πŸ˜‰

Bye bye 2022… you sucked!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Hello 2023, please be kinder to us πŸ™
