Saturday, June 02, 2012      21 comments

Important to note that I have to cook and prep my meals for the work week on Sundays and cannot cook much anymore, so they do seem to repeat a lot. I don't seem to mind much, and it seems to appease my mild case of OCD. : ) I've added in so... Read more

I limped slightly into yesterday's nerve procedure for my left foot, but was excited for the same great results as with my right hand. No room in my mind for folding on this round. I was allll in. We checked in at 5:45 a.m. I got the loc... Read more

To follow up on my last blog, I have a SUCCESS to post. My right hand hand now been functioning consistently for 9 days now. *9 Days!* I had a few good days here and there this past January, and I was happy for them. But 9 days back to b... Read more
Did you know that Vampires wear Axe cologne spray?

Well, that's what I think that scent was anyway. Every time I feel the soreness in my neck, I tell myself that I was in a mythical world recently, and a cleanly shaven, pasty-pale, rail-thin vampire was simply introducing himself to me. We all k... Read more

I'm scheduled to get another nerve procedure tomorrow morning. I've been in complete denial about this since writing the date down two weeks ago. Why? I need to figure this out. Well, I will apparently get poked (deeply) in my neck to find a spe... Read more

Sunday, April 01, 2012      15 comments

Over the past 6 months, I have pretty much gained back almost all of the weight that I had lot this past year. Things have been...complicated to say the least. I am now in the largest sized pair of jeans I have ever owned. It makes me mad.... Read more
Nitroglycerin and Toy Story band-aids, really?

I have been meaning to post an update blog, but a lot has happened. And that "a lot" has affected the use of my hands even more. My husband refers to this type of situation as a cr*p sandwich. Forgive me, but it does seem appropriate! We sp... Read more

I can't really spill the secrets of this trial, other than to tell you that a small # of people across the U.S. were asked to be a part of a new drug trial for a rare neuromuscular / neurovascular disease. Only a handful of those were accepte... Read more

And once again I remind you to get your gray matter out of the gutter! Guess what? I pay attention to the hands of strangers. If you and I crossed paths and I could get a good solid peek, I would probably be looking a your hands too. T... Read more

Some people refer to their memory as a vault; capable of retaining important information for decades, ready to be neatly opened to reveal valuable information like some sort of certificate. They can remember key points of a speech someone gave... Read more
Popcorn is my gateway drug...
Thursday, January 19, 2012      18 comments

Am I alone in saying that popcorn not only makes me happy, but also makes me INSANE at times? I try to reserve it for the weekend, since I tend to turn into a poppie freak, and need some ample recovery time to flood my body with water and lemo... Read more

First off, get your mind outta the gutter! I saw my neurologist yesterday and proudly made a fist with my right hand. Something I have not been able to do entirely for 8 weeks. 8 WEEKS. I have had a painful nerve flare in my hand, affect... Read more

I was quite naughty with food recently. Let’s just say that my body is still angry at me for the contents flowing within it… Post face stuffing, I played back the details of it all. Not only disgusted with myself, but fighting off feelings ... Read more

Yesterday I went back to the Pain Center at the hospital for another nerve block procedure to try to take the edge off some of this ridiculous pain. With it being the holidays, only the skeleton crew seemed to be working, and my regular doctor ... Read more
