I can’t believe we are already in March and this is the first month that I have had time to get one of these posts up. The end of last year and the start of this year were totally crazy for me, and I had no time to do anything other than getting book reviews typed up and posted.

I don’t have as many book reviews this year because I have had to tell authors that I can’t review their books because I have no time to read the books let alone type up more reviews. I also am looking for a couple of people to join my review team so if you or someone you know might be interested send them my way. I also will be having a Multiple Sclerosis update up in the next couple of weeks because I saw my doctor in January and I also had an MRI on the 25th of February. I also have had weird things going on that I want to share so that I can come back and look the post if I ever need to remember how I am feeling.
I saw my neurologist on August first so I figured I would just write down how I have felt so that I have a record of it. Nothing changed when I saw her, but I haven’t felt good for months. I can’t remember the last time I felt this bad for as long as I have lately. I am sure it was like this before I started Tysabri, but I have been on it now for about seven years, so I don’t remember how I used to feel. I know part of it is the heat and another part I am sure is because of stress. I started a new job in January, so it has been an adjustment in that sense, and I just moved to a different part of the company, so I know have to learn all new stuff which can be stressful at times.
I have been having severe headaches lately, and my sleep has been the worst it has ever been. I only sleep for an hour or two a night which I know is also contributing to my headaches. I know that there is nothing that can be done to make me sleep better because I have yet to find a medication that will help me sleep, so I just have to make due. I am so glad that I have a job and insurance, so I can’t complain about the stress of everything. I know I will learn whatever I need to know soon enough, and the people that I am working with are so friendly and helpful.
I also feel like my eye site is getting worse, and I find that I am starting to read more digital books because I can make the font bigger, so I don’t have to strain my eyes as much. I have to schedule an MRI for October, so I have to wonder if the disease is still stable. Those the few things that I wanted to share so I will have another small update after I get my next MRI and once I have those results.
I am sure most of you know that I started a new job the first of this year. Things are super weird because I am still in the same building and I still work with most of the people that I have for the past eight years, but everything else has changed. I am not a huge fan of change, but it is something that you will have to do no matter how much you hate it.
Since I am working for a new company now, everything has changed, and I am left with basically nothing to do while watching other people do everything I used to do. I thought for sure that working for this new company would make me stress go away, but instead, it did the exact opposite. I am now more worried about my job and what not because of how things are playing out.I already have a hard time dealing with this person because of things that happened when he was brought on and everything that is happening now it is just making it even worse. It also doesn’t help that I know as of February first I have to start all over with the insurance and drug companies to get my Multiple Sclerosis medications approved and what not. The only people who have the luxury of dealing with both will understand
It also doesn’t help that I know as of February first I have to start all over with the insurance and drug companies to get my Multiple Sclerosis medications approved and what not. The only people who have the luxury of dealing with both will understand how much of a headache it is to deal with one let alone two of them at the same time. I have been doing it for the past 6 or 7 years, so I am getting to be an old professional, but it still takes days and even weeks of calling tons of people to get it all set up and ready go.
I also have things going on with my family, but those things won’t get posted on this blog because you never know who will see it, and I don’t want or need that drama going on in my life. Those are just a few of the things that are currently frustrating me. I am sure once this post goes live I will think of a few more. Maybe I will turn this into a series because I do feel better now that I got those few written down and out of my head.
What is currently frustrating you?
