I’ve been to the ER 3 times in the space of 13 months.
January 2013, it was food poisoning.
July 2013, I was having trouble breathing, which we finally attributed to my medication interacting.
Yesterday was just full of surprises all around.
I woke up at around 7am on Wednesday with my stomach feeling oddly [...]
I talked to my friend, who was diagnosed with ALS before he was finally discovered to have Lyme disease (like, they gave him 6 months to live, he can’t get a job because a doctor once told him he was terminal, etc. – it was rough), and who also happens to be the guy I [...]
While everyone else I know was watching the Super Bowl, some friends of mine on Twitch had something called the Squeaky Bowl.
I found out about it a few days before, as the guy organizing it needed my paypal email. He used our joint charity streaming channel to host the event (a 48-hour stream), and [...]
So far, the side effects of the Levaquin have been as such, for me:
seeing things (out of the corner of my eye) invasive thoughts (not pleasant ones – so far I’ve been able to derail them) muscle and tendon pain (more on that in a minute) what is either just serious fatigue or loss [...]
I’ve become part of a streaming community through Indie Game Mag, which is pretty neat. My profile page is here (and the blog is linked there, because a lot of the questions people ask me can be answered here, and this is a public site, so I honestly don’t care): gameplay.indiegamemag.com/squeakyb/
I’ve been slowly developing [...]
I mean, aside from the inclement weather, which is somehow only going to make temperatures stupidly low tomorrow. They’re just going to go back up on Tuesday, soooo…yeah. Some winter storm, as far as we’re concerned.
I started my regimen of Bactrim (BID) and Levaquin (once per day), and so far I feel nothing out [...]
An alarming number of people seem to think that my hysterectomy was the solution to all of my medical woes. (Alarming = nearly 10 that I can count off the top of my head.)
Considering the hype that was placed on fundraising, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised.
I will admit that not having cramps, [...]
It appears that most of the infections from ticks start with the letter “b” – borrelia is Lyme, babesia is a type of protozoa, and bartonella is more commonly known as “cat scratch fever.”
Then erlichia comes in and screws up the whole alliteration, but that’s beside the point.
I had a follow-up with my [...]
I’m going to ignore my stupid left hand for a minute and let y’all know what’s up with a few things.
I’ve had pain in my left leg for months, as well as really odd stomach pain (pain in the area of my stomach…not pain that necessarily originates in the organ called “stomach”). The leg [...]
I’m not going to try to cover all of it through typing, because that’s a lot of information and a lot of terminology that people either don’t care about, or just plain don’t know what it means. Hell – the only reason I could parse some of it was context clues (from it being, you know, [...]
