Cat Therapy, Specialists and Day to Day Drama

I know, I know. This update is long overdue. I can’t even remember what I last posted about! I would promise to update more often, but really… let’s not get too serious 😉

So I have been nauseous for about three or four months constantly. I was absolutely certain that it was a gluten intolerance, however my test results came back normal for gluten sensitivity. I was both surprised and extremely frustrated. I have gone to a walk in, went to the hospital (because along with the nausea was a sharp on and off abdominal pain.) and went to see my doctor. I was tested by all of the above for pregnancy (and great news, no babies!) and they all chalked it up to a flu or a virus. About three weeks ago I was a scary level of sick all night, I went to the hospital in the wee hours for an IV, and was given a medication for the nausea. Ever heard of Maxeran? I found out the day after that I am the rare percent that is allergic to it. I had muscle spasms in my face and neck. I felt silly going to the emergency on a Sunday because “my neck felt like it was pulling my head up”, but I am glad I went. I quickly went from feeling funny, to experiencing face muscle spasms and my jaw becoming unaligned and let me tell you… if you ever have a reaction anything like this, seek medical attention immediately. I am fully recovered from that escapade, but still am puzzled by the nausea. There’s many options, and I am being referred to a specialist to get to the bottom of this. In the mean time, I roll with the punches. Some days I’m fine, and some days I spend most of the day in the bathroom.

In other news, my cat also had some doctor face time at her vet appointment the other day. The poor thing hates the kennel and the vet alike, because of last year when she was really sick. She had a clean bill of health, and isn’t even overweight. She still loves me too, I am happy to report!


And… I’ll save the family drama for another post I think. It’s simply draining to keep up with this group of strangers that expect me to jump into roles with them. I feel like I’m playing a dangerous high-school-clique-land-mine-field. I can’t even think about their latest insanity these days. I just get overwhelmed and frustrated. God knows I am overwhelmed and frustrated with enough things these days!

I do hope your days are less overwhelming and frustrating. I do look forward to typing up a few more posts in the near future. I forget how therapeutic it is to arrange all the day to day craziness and post it to lovely strangers and friends like yourselves! 😉



Take care.


I Have Good News [Followed by a Minor Panic Attack!]

I have come to the conclusion, after a conversation with one of my best friends, that yoga has indeed brought me to a calmer place. I feel internally more peaceful, less bothered by little things and excited to start each new yoga video.

That doesn’t make the slow days and no news from any potential employers any easier. In fact I think I’m going a bit stir crazy. Filling out job profiles on government sites, job search engines and applying directly on companies web pages… I am going to go mad!

But in other news, I am successfully off the coffee band wagon, I am enjoying healthy foods (even craving them!) I’ve taken a multivitamin and extra vitamin D, B6 &B12 daily, and have done yoga and/or taken the dog for a mile walk for the past couple weeks.

So all around, this “break” from full time work is giving me some wonderful time to spend on my health and on myself! There’s the positivity, and I will leave it at that. I won’t even add a “but…” at the end of that!

Well readers, any tips for a student going crazy trying to find work?
