How are you going with your journeys? Lots has happened over the past few months. I finished the Community Service course, and i’m doing placement 2 days a week at a Community Support Centre. I also had quite a few interviews and job opportunities, with 3 job offers for over Christmas. My Anxiety has been extreme with lots of stress over the past few months, but it has eased a little. Although from the start of November I have had 2 days placement and 4 days of training in my new job.
Last week I started my new job in sales and being quite a busy time of year for retail I have been taking 2 rescue remedy pastels a day, 2 cups of Camomile Tea, 3 cans of Peps Max Cans, and back on having chocolate everyday (I gave up for 3 months but too much stress in my life I needed sugar and caffeine to calm the nerves, although it causes more anxiety).
I’m feeling quite healthy but I don’t think my specialist will be too impressed that I have lost 2kg since I saw her in August. (Currently 43.4kg) I’m at my weight I was at in year 7 but I haven’t lost weight intentionally. I have just been eating at odd times and exercising the same. I guess because i’m busy with lots going on I don’t really have much time to sit down, and i’m eating junk food and healthy.
I have quite a lot on my plate at the moment so I will see how my results are when I see the Endocrinologist in February.
Well that’s it from me for new. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas with your friends and family. I’ll update you soon on any new progress.
I hope you are all going well on your journey of health. I have had a busy week. I visited my local doctor regarding a few health concerns.
Anxiety has been under control with Rescue Remedy, relaxation, meditation and looking into Yoga. Although some days are worse than others.
Yesterday I had my yearly MRI appointment ( 3 months earlier because of my not so good previous results.) My Mum came with me to have the scan as I don’t look forward to having them after a previous bad experience. This MRI scan was different from my last year scan. I’m usually quite relaxed, but from the beginning of the scan, as I laid down on the bed before I entered the tunnel, I had really bad anxiety and throughout the entire scan. I’m so glad that’s over for another year I hope. I’m staying positive for great results next month with my specialist.
I also saw the Physiotherapist today. My TOS (Thoracic Outlet Syndrome) is playing up, causing muscle spasms and nerve issues in my neck, shoulders and back. The Physiotherapist I usually see is on holidays so it was a fill in Physio with a different approach to my health concern. Although her approach was quite thorough, and i’m in quite excruciating pain in my neck, shoulders and down my whole back, I feel that with resting at home this weekend, pain medicine (Nurophen Zavance), Bath Muscle Relaxant Salts, and no housework I will be feeling better in a few days until my next physio session.
Apart from a few other health concerns I have been feeling tired, forgetful and a little dizzy some days. I have also lost 2 kilos (Currently at 44.5kg) since my previous visit. Not sure if this has anything to do with the Pituitary but I will certainly mention this to the specialist on my next visit.
On the plus side I have decided to enroll in a couple of courses as well as looking for some part time employment, to build up my confidence, keep my mind focused on other things, to eliminate feeling depressed and anxious all the time, and encourage more positive social skills.
Well that’s it from me for now. I hope I haven’t bored anyone with this long post.
I hope you all have a great weekend. Will write more again soon.
Hi Everyone, Well lots has been happening since my last post.
2010 ended with a great Christmas gift. I found employment a week before Christmas working in the health industry. A huge relief after a long couple of years unemployed
My health seems to be on track and going well. Although I have been getting anxiety, a few headaches, a little dizzy and tired lately. I’m due to see the endocrinologist in April so will see how I go when I have another blood-test.
I had my eyes tested at the optometrists yesterday, with a slight change in my vision but the pressure test is all good so nothing to worry about there. I will be get my new glasses next week and wear them on more regular occasions if required.
I also celebrated my 29th Birthday this week. Although there was a delay with celebrations due to floods in my area and road closures in and out of my town. I had the best lunch out with family over the weekend (once the roads and the water had cleared). I also really enjoyed a lovely dinner with my partner on Tuesday night.
I’ll update you on any new progress soon. Have a lovely weekend and I will be in touch again. Harmony and Hope to you all.
