I’m taking part in the 100 Happy Days Challenge as well as a 100 Days of Gratitude Challenge. I decided to combine them both!
Hasn’t it been ages! About six months, which is roughly when my life started to go apeshit. I had planned to update in the beginning, but kept putting it off. There was so much to deal with and I was emotionally exhausted. I did post two short updates on Bookish Ardour (here and here) to explain lack of posting.
For the most part things have settled down now. I’m in a happier place and willing to talk about it all. Here’s my condensed version, and I mean condensed, of the last six months!
First Things First – Lets Get Through the Bad Juju
- Pulmonary Embolism – Went to hospital feeling like I was dying. Had blood tests. Lo and behold, one came back positive. After a VQ Scan, I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Embolism (clot in the lung). I had three clots. No wonder I felt like shit!
- Deficiencies – I had low potassium and low iron resulting in a potassium drip. My favourite kind! They burn like a mofo. People; avoid potassium deficiencies and overdosing. Potassium is fun like that.
- Psychological Issues – Had to explain repetitively about my choking phobia, odd diet, mental health, then was referred to a dietitian (who, I gotta say, should not be speaking to diabetics) and a speech pathologist.
