Shaky Mental Health

***WARNING: SENSITIVE CONTENT/IMAGES. VIEW WITH CAUTION. 11/06/2019-Ongoing These past two or so weeks have been tough. And honestly, I have no idea why. I am thinking either I am just extremely exhausted (Working 40 hours a week, school ending etc). Another thing is, I haven’t skated in over a week because of the injection procedure. So…

Flaring during Exams

These past few days I have been completing mid-terms and finals for two different classes (with a third class about to start). However, my body has also been flaring. There has been some unbearable body pain (that has been getting better over the past few days). A few days ago it hurt just to sit…

Long day at the Hospital

May 27th, 2019 – I went to a hospital, one where I am being followed by several doctors. Today’s appointment was the rheumatology clinic.

Headaches/Migraines- Normal or Not?

Lately. I have been getting these massive headaches. Ones that I can’t even describe to someone. It is sharp stabbing, throbbing pain that is over my right eye and that side of my head. The narrow visions I have before it happens. The nausea, throwing up, body sweats…it’s all getting more progressive. If anyone knows…

Biggest Mistake – Humira

Ankylosing Spondylitis has been a journey on it’s own. With all the treatments I was going through and some were little to not working at all. My doctor suggested Humira. An injection that I would inject myself with once a week, every two weeks. Looking for any sort of relief I gave in and I…

Binge eating; the relapse and addiction

Training for a 2 program competition 5 days after the last one.

Endo came in like a wrecking ball

Endo-flare is attacking me again…Almost as if the theme is “I came in like a wrecking ball.” Okay, so you know the music I am listening to while writing this post. But still, it is legit. This period week has been brutal. It started with a week before my period was supposed to begin. I…
