4th Day In Hospital


In the last one and a half weeks I have had at least 4 infections I was non-responsive. I was just able to hit my emergency button.

Transported to hospital by ambulance. Don’t remember much. Blood pressure was bottoming out and since a narcotic was found in my urine they pumped me full of Narcan for a drug overdose. Horrible from what I remember. I didn’t overdose on purpose. My kidneys were not functioning so the narcotic wasn’t being flushed out and when I took subsequent doses it caused an overdose.

I spent two days and came home Tuesday night only to have to come back Wednesday afternoon.

Not sure what is going on. Infection running rampant and trouble breathing as well. Hope to be back soon as possible.

Missing in Action – Not feeling like writing!


I haven’t felt like writing lately. I went to my writer’s group, but luckily I am way ahead on chapters that I can take for review.

I have become interested in crafting and started what they call “Junk Journals.” I am learning how to create them minus the junk part. I am not feeling the junkiness that this group loves. Mine are nice and neat, well eventually they will be neat as I am still learning how to make them and there are many ways. I made a baby book/journal/scrapbook for my newest grandchild. I have spent hours and I do mean many hours watching videos on youtube on how to construct and decorate the different types of junk journals and spent money on the supplies. I don’t believe it is the mania speaking here. I truly find it fascinating and have 2 birthdays this month to complete.

A true junk journal includes all the junk mail and trash you can accumulate and I am just not into that so mine are much neater and prettier.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity in Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS


Multiple Chemical Sensitivity in Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS

I am very sensitive to different chemicals up to and including candles and perfumes. You know how some people douse themselves in perfume. It just about kills me trying to breathe through that. I have to avoid the candle stores and perfume sections of stores. I can’t tolerate the scents.
