Life Updates

Hi everyone! I hope you all are well!

Here’s a quick post to keep you all updated with my life. It’s actually not that exciting really, but just in case you’re interested…

1) The microwave is officially fixed! It took 31 days. I wonder how long it will last now? Hmmm…

2) Work has been kicking my butt this week. I still fantasize about quitting but I’m scared. I don’t think my family can afford losing my income right now. So I’m stuck until I can figure out how to replace that $$$.

3) I’m also still stuck at home. The hubs has gone back to the office but he’s weazled a 3-day or 4-day weekend every week out of it. I’m not complaining though. I’m enjoying the peace and quiet during the day at least 3 or 4 days a week now. But it’s lonely. I was lonely before too. The hubs going back to the office didn’t affect that.

4) Speaking of being lonely… I used to socially network in-person for work at least once a week prior to covid. Now I’ve had ZERO social life for the last 18 months. It’s a big change for me and I miss it. But I think I just miss the social in-person part of it. I wish I could have that back in my life. But not for work, but for my new blogging life instead. What do you all think? Are you in? 🙂

5) My chronic headache issue has come back. I was kinda excited because it was gone for a few months so I thought I was recovered. But I woke up in the middle of the night last Wednesday in pain and I’ve had a headache in the back of my head ever since then, for the last 7 says with no relief. Nothing I’ve tried will make it go away. I’m so discouraged it’s back. I could just cry. I first experienced it and posted about it here.

So I’m sorry I’ve been a bit ornery lately, but maybe #1-4 above helps to explain that. Hopefully I’ll turn it all around soon…

  1. Hey- I can comment from reader! This hasn’t happened in awhile. Something is going right! 😃I was just going to say that I will be praying you figure out what causes your headaches and how to stop them. Pain that can’t be relieved is the pits! I am sorry you’re dealing with that. And the rest, but that one seems most urgent.

    1. Aw thank you so much Mamalava! I appreciate your prayers and I appreciate you! Oh yes, about the comments from Reader! It was a Jetpack issue! Only took me MONTHS of trouble-shooting on my own since neither WordPress support verticals would help me. But I’m kinda proud of myself. 🙂

  2. Aww sorry to hear things are not as great as they could be (although I’m very excited for you re: microwave!).. The headache thing sounds awful, I feel for you and wish there was something that could help 😞

    I’d be up for a blogging meet-up any day! Lol

    Hope you feel better!!! 🙂

  3. Hurrah, great news on the microwave! I’m sorry things at work aren’t great, which is probably an understatement. I hope you can find another option, somewhere else to work maybe, that suits you better.

    I hope you find the online blogging world can help you feel a little less alone. I also have zero social life – literally zero – so I get that it doesn’t make up for the in-person experience, but it’s certainly better than nothing. Covid will have to be over one day though, right? Daydream about that day and when you can go out and see other people more normally again, that’ll be something to look forward to.

    I’m so sorry about your headaches. Are they migraines, with any aura, nausea etc, or headaches? They’re utterly miserable either way, especially when they’re chronic and last for so damn long. Have you tried any prescription meds? The only thing I find that works for me is Sumatriptan for inflammation-caused migraines. I don’t think I would still be here if it weren’t for that because they’re so debilitating to deal with. That alone would make you feel awful and alone, let alone everything else you’ve got going on.

    Be kind to yourself. Sending lots of hugs your way,
    Caz xxxx

    1. Aw thank you for the hugs and the encouraging words, Caz! You’re so awesome to me. I’m sorry to hear that you don’t have a social life either, as I know what that feels like and it stinks. I’ll dream about how crazy I’ll be when I finally go out again! I actually have a few ideas on how to make that happen! Perhaps you can join in too. 🙂

      I don’t know what kind of headaches these are. I used to get migraines, and these don’t feel the same. This is a distinctly different type of headache that I’ve never experienced before. I’ve tried all possible meds for headaches too, I even had some prescription opiods for awhile too and believe it or not – THOSE didn’t even work! Since nothing works, I just ride it out until it goes away by itself. I’m starting to wonder if it’s even a headache – maybe it’s nerve damage or something. I don’t know. I had an MRI of my brain and the doctor couldn’t see anything wrong, so I don’t know anymore… 🙁

  4. Aww I’m sorry you’re going through it with the curious headaches/migraines, it really does suck. It seems like a lot of people never learn what causes theirs. I don’t have any triggers and nobody knew what caused mine either. I had to try doing different things like recently sleeping upright as I was waking up with it a lot, to figure it’s probably inflammation (I seem to have widespread autoimmune inflammation so I guess it could make sense). But yeah, mine are totally different to the odd migraines I used to get. Only Sumatriptan works for me, not other opioids. Do you have triptans to try? Sorry if that’s a dumb question. I just ask because they widen the blood vessels so I wonder if it’s anything similar. I just feel so useless because I wish I could help you in some way. Just having to put up with it seems incredibly unfair. xxxx

    1. I’m in trial-and-error mode too. I feel like I have to figure it out myself, because the doctors aren’t really giving me anything to work with. 🙁 I’m not very well-versed when it comes to medications, so I’m not very good with the names of everything I’ve tried. I just know that I tried several different prescriptions, and none of them helped me, so I quit them all. 🙁 Thank you for wishing that you could help me. I’m not happy you’re experiencing this too, but I’m glad you understand what I’m going through. I’m in the same boat as you. You’re not alone. {{HUGS}}
