Living a life of uncertainty

I am currently living in a world that does not seem like mine. Sure, I have had times where I was uncertain and fearful…but this is by far the worst. This is a world where everything has been turned upside down and shit spills out. What has happened to make my world topsy turvy shit?

I was recently diagnosed with Chiari (kee-AH-ree) Malformation. It’s a congenital condition where part of your brain spills out of the back of your skull and presses down onto the spinal column. The crap it creates is many and varied.

My personal symptoms (that I have endured my whole life, but tried to brush off) are:

  • Migraines (hard to brush this one off)
  • Photo-sensitive (sensitive to light…I feel like a vampire) & certain sounds
  • Vertigo (nope, can’t brush this one off anymore—everyday, all day)
  • Clumsiness
  • Forgetfulness (short term memory loss)
  • Brain fog (I equate it to when a computer freezes and refuses to reboot)
  • Chest palpitations (how could I forget that one when it’s become an everyday occurrence?)
  • Neck pain (along with this constant pressure at base of head)
  • Back pain
  • Tinnitus (that annoying ringing of the ears)
  • Tingling/numbness of the hands
  • Difficulty swallowing (had times where I could not swallow at all)
  • Stomach pains
  • Blurry vision/floaters in eyes (the floaters are actually dead broken off blood vessels)/fairy lights (looks just like little fairy lights)
  • Tremors (I feel like I’m having a mini seizure) 
  • Insomnia

These symptoms come and go, I never know when I’ll get one or a few at one time. And because of my constant vertigo companion, I can’t work…they say I am a danger to myself or others. I guess I can see where they are coming from, being that I work around robots 10 hours a day. Well…I did.

I have no clue which way is up anymore. I can no longer (for now) help provide for my little family. I worry how we’ll pay our rent now. I can’t even think about my student loans at this time. I can only take it one day at a time.

It doesn’t help when I have doubters around me. My immediate family has been very supportive, since they have personally seen me suffer. My extended family (mainly in-laws) give me the impression I am just putting on “airs” and making it up. I have a few friends who have rallied by my side, I am thankful for them.

I inadvertently hurt my husband last night. His youngest brother is having his thyroid and some lymph nodes removed next month (he was diagnosed with cancer). (Imagine the stress my poor husband is having, his wife and brother sick at the same time.) I told him I didn’t think I would go with him when he goes to Arkansas, because I got the feeling from his family that I was just pulling a fast one. I know he needs me there with him, I just feel very uncomfortable being around people who think I am putting on an act. I hate feeling like this. I hate feeling worthless and inadequate. Most of all…I hate being doubted, especially when I have medical proof I am not. I even have a fucking email from my nurse practitioner telling me what I have.

Cake Trap

plaidjohanna:

Season 7 Episode something or other-  When Bobby has the Leviathan trapped in the basement, Dean tells him to “shut his cake trap.” Who says that? That’s not a common phrase. Anyone else would have said “shut your pie hole!”

Dean loves pie so much that he comes up with a new phrase to protect the staus of pie.

This just about made my night.
Whoever made this (kudos to your punny self, Fhan Girling) is a brilliant bugger who deserves all the internet cats. Just all of them. Between the Impala surfing the waves and Dean’s puckered stare of intense longing, I nearly lost my marbles laughing.
