CAN YOU SPY A FACE DESCENDING THE STEP?
HERE HE COMES……………
THE BIG JOY OF MY LIFE!
Who knew a PIG could be such a SMILE MAKER!
This week I had a call from ANIMAL SERVICES telling me that I WANTED TO SURRENDER MY PIG!
I said, WHAT DID YOU SAY?(I was driving and missed a word or TWO!)She repeated the reason for her phone call and I said this is a HOAX!I would NEVER SURRENDER THIS PIG.I heard a lot of relief in her voice as I went on to tell her HIS MANICURIST FLYS IN FROM TEXAS EVERY FEW MONTHS to do his nails and dental work!She then confirmed my name and email and cell number!SO, THE HOAX~ETTE had all my personal information!
I MUST KNOW HER!
Can you BELIEVE someone has time to do these MALICIOUS CHARADES!!!?
Giving YOU ALL an UPDATE on my HEALTH BATTLE.
Letting you know I have had TWO BAD, BAD MONTHS of EPISODES and EYES GOING!
Most of you have been around for awhile but a few of you are NEW so this is the LOW DOWN!
AS of this past NOVEMBER I have entered year FOUR of what I call EPISODES!
AN EPISODE IS WHERE I LOSE MY VISION AND FEEL FAINT!
Let’s just say I reached out to my old Medical doctor who has GREAT COMPASSION and she got the ball rolling by calling my other doctors!I had recently seen my CARDIOLOGIST on JAN 7th.I had gone to PILATES and than NORDSTROMS to have a salad and try on some NEW BRAS ( EXCITING!) before heading over to the MEDICAL BUILDING.
I was DOWN for about 40 minutes as my eyes went and I couldNOT SEE nor OPEN THEM!
I had an EXCELLENT SALES GIRL by the name of AUDREY!
She took control and said ,”Hold on to my hand.I’m going to put you in the dressing room next door there is a long chaise you can lie on.”I’ll get your things don’t worry!She guided me into the other fitting room and called out to another sales associate to bring water!She checked on me every 10 minutes or so………a young thing that had her wits about HER and took CONTROL!
I made it to the medical building a little WOBBLY and of course with a mild headache.
I told the gal at the front desk I should have my blood pressure taken as I had just had one of my Episodes, would that be possible.
She went to look for someone.
After about 10 minutes she came back saying they were all coming back from lunch and no one was available!!!!!
FINE.The EPISODE was over an hour ago when this all started and of course she has no idea how important that information would be!
Cardiologist arrives barely looks at me.To busy looking and typing on computer.
Almost forgot to listen to my heart until the “VISIT” was over!
DID you know they do this now through your clothing?!
AGAIN I was asked by a CARDIOLOGIST of the medical industry ,”WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?”
That is TWICE now I have been asked THAT QUESTION the other time was in the EMERGENCY ROOM.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO BEDSIDE MANNER AND COMPASSION?
Don’t people become DOCTORS Because they want to HELP PEOPLE?
I’m SO SORRY or lets look at this again would go along way for this 59 and a half year old!
OH NO NONE OF THAT!
Well, I say” I’m in year FOUR of these EPISODES and I have not seen YOU IN A YEAR:I thought maybe we should repeat some of the tests.”
His answer was a flat”NO.”
With reasons that this test and that test had been done in 2018 or 2019.
To pacify me he did say he could put another Heart Monitor on me.
I reply,” I just had one put on two months ago in October!”
WE found out I have AFIB, irregular heat beats, and something else that escapes me!
But that does not seem to be a concern!
After that phone call we changed my heart medicine from METOPROLOL, which I have been on for 20 years to a Beta Blocker called SOTALOL.I have noticed I’m not as tired nor as off balance with this new drug. I have not noticed erectile dysfunction yet, but it was very interesting to try Viagra, to experiment, and to get new emotions and sensations. Of course, I read on https://hesca.net/buy-viagra-sildenafil-online-20-mg/ that there were possible side effects and other unpleasant consequences, but I thought that one pill wouldn’t cause anything bad. I started to use Viagra from time to time, and side effects appeared over time. Just do not buy any generics, there is no need to poison yourself, it is better to spend a little more money and be fully confident in health of your second half. TO think I have been dragging for the last 20 years because of a medicine really SHAKES ME UP!
I just googled METOPROLOL it says at the end………to prevent headaches in those with MIGRAINES!
ANYHOW, I feel a bit better OVERALL.
But these EPISODES are coming OFTEN NOW like every other day.
After an EPISODE HITS I am worthless meaning I get a headache and feel like a TRUCK has hit me.
SO, back to my old MD who spoke with my NEUROLOGIST and he thinks I have BASILAR MIGRAINES.
I had been told it could be COMPLEX MIGRAINES, but I had never heard the word BASILAR before as I would REMEMBER THAT WORD TOO SIMILAR TO BASIL which makes PESTO for us to EAT!
Because I am desperate, hardly leaving the house, feel awful every day and am now scared to go out in public without MY ITALIAN.
Remember I am gluten free, diary free and yeast free.
No alcohol No wine For OVER A YEAR!
Gluten Free bread has YEAST in it so I eat GRAIN FREE BREAD that costs $8.00 a loaf.
I cannot have Vinegar on my salad because it has YEAST!
I just gave up my ONE coffee a day!
Since, caffeine is not GOOD for the MIGRAINES.
This is the part where I want you to feel SORRY FOR ME as my wedding rings are falling off as well!
I have lost my appetite for FOOD in GENERAL.
THIS IS NO WAY TO LIVE!
FOOD IS AN EVERY DAY ENJOYMENT.NOT FOR ME ANYMORE.
ANYHOW……… here is our correspondence!
I write an EMAIL TO MY NEUROLOGIST:
I spoke with Doctor X and she told me your theory of BASILAR MIGRAINES.
What is the next step?
I have had Three Episodes in the past month where the eyes couldn’t focus for at least 40 minutes.
Dec.4,at lunch walking to table.
Dec.28th, worst one ever at dinner party
Jan.7th in fitting room at Nordstrom’s
In the last 12 days just the EYES have lost focus FIVE Times have left me with a mild headache.
Had eyes checked yesterday.All good there.
Wearing Heart Monitor for 30 days at the moment.
I would love to feel better so done with this after FOUR YEARS!
Look forward to hearing from YOU.
Should I make an appointment to see YOU?
Meanwhile, I called before hearing back and the receptionist would not give me an appointment without talking to the doctor first.You can imagine MY FEELINGS on THAT one!
NEUROLOGIST RESPONSE TO ME THE PATIENT.
This is the same diagnosis we discussed every time I have seen you.
The options are all medications and the Choices are as follows:
1)topamax – you tired this and had bad side effects
2)depakote- you had tried this and apparently it was sedating
3)verapamil – I don’t believe you have tried this
4)Other anticonvulsants(such as lamotrigine)- I think less likely to help than verapamil
Dress was orange!I can still recall this photo being taken.
Interesting way to respond to someone who is having DIFFICULTIES LIVING from DAY to DAY!
SO, I’m now on VERAPAMIL………..and it seems to be WORKING!
THIS IS A SEIZURE MEDICATION.
This is only day 11 but I’m hopeful!
When I picked up this medication I felt awful.I informed the pharmacist and he pointed to a desk where I can get my blood pressure read.After waiting 15 minutes maybe longer a perky young thing came out to get me.My blood pressure was 109/59 and that was when I was feeling a WEE BIT BETTER.She told me she would send the results to my MD and to have a good day!I had mentioned I was feeling SO BAD before that I did not think I could drive home.There is no concern or helpful chit chat like do you want to stay here for awhile before heading out…………. just ON TO THE NEXT PERSON!
AS of TODAY I have not heard from my doctor about the blood pressure which was taken on January 28th,2020.
So,TEN DAYS AGO.Maybe it was not a concern?An email checking in with me would have been nice.A follow up to a scare I had?
I have LOW BLOOD PRESSURE TO BEGIN WITH BUT IT IS NORMALLY IN THE RANGE OF 122/72.
My Pulse has been high these past couple of years like 91.And that’s after sitting for 45 minutes.
I had originally dismissed the MIGRAINE Theory because I could function, but this ALL STARTED FOUR YEARS AGO with me waking up from sleep to start the day with HEADACHES.
Time will tell……………let’s HOPE this is MY DRUG.
ON TO OTHER NEWS!
BELOW A COMMENT LEFT ON MY BLOG.
This made me SMILE and LAUGH, since A WOMAN recently MADE FUN OF MY HIGH PITCHED VOICE!
SHE told me “NOT TO SPEAK TO HER IN THAT HIGH PITCHED VOICE!”
I replied, but that is MY VOICE!
“NO IT’S NOT! THEY DONOT TEACH YOU to talk like THAT IN SCHOOL!”
THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW ME KNOW THAT IS THE REAL ME!
NO FAKE VOICE HERE!
I have been teased about my voice my entire LIFE.Something I have learned to live with.
SORRY IF IT OFFENDS YOU!
I have a PRODUCT to SHARE with YOU.

A VERY SPECIAL MAN.
Back to MY STORY,Flower is an off grid gal living in VERMONT.
SHE makes her own POTIONS from her off grid
VERMONT MOUNTAIN APOTHECARY!
We recently had a nice back and fourth messaging.
FLOWERS WORDS BELOW.
“Your symptoms remind me of a client of mine who would lose her vision and it always followed with a headache for a day or two.
I worked with her and after a couple of tries I found the root of her symptoms.For her it was a pinched nerve in her neck that pressed on her upper spine.This connected to her ocular nerve.This may not be your situation but it definitely sounds like you are experiencing a disruption in blood flow to your ocular line which connects to pressure in your brain/head.”
THIS SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE WHAT IAM EXPERIENCING!
