Dear Fellow Bloggy Friends,
I am so sorry for the lack of posts lately. For the last few months, I just haven’t felt like myself. It has taken all of my energy to just get out of bed most days and go to work. By the time I get home, I’m ready to go back to bed, which means that not a lot of other projects have been getting done. Thanks to my wonderful husband for putting up with me throughout this.
For years I have been battling chronic pain without any type of actual diagnosis as far as what causes the pain. I had tried various medications to help relieve the pain so that I could at least function somewhat. Last summer after deciding to take a break from our TTC Journey, my family doctor who I love, put me on a medication that worked really well, but hasn’t been determined if it’s safe to take while pregnant, so I stopped taking it when we decided to start our journey again this year.
In April we received news that our last round of fertility medication was unsuccessful and learned what our next options are. The doctor would like us to try some injectable medications before moving on to IUI. So until we can save up enough money to try that, I decided to talk to my doctor about going back on the medication that made me feel better. And thankfully she is agreeable and I think I might finally have a diagnosis to all of my pain and other symptoms… Fibromyalgia.
I am WAY too young to have such a diagnosis and to let it affect my life the way that it has. My mom was diagnosed with it in her mid-thirties and later another form of arthritis that affects her life on a daily basis.
In the mean time I am determined to get to feeling better and increase my energy. I hope that you’ll stick with me through this difficult time. I promise that I will be back full swing as soon as the energy comes back. I have lots of projects and idea’s to share.
Once again, thanks for sticking with me and hope you understand that I need to take care of myself and my family first and foremost.
