I haven't posted in forever. I've been very busy.

Including with my shoulder. Turns out I have an impingement. And then I blew it out again at work last week. >.<

My simple question is... how much is too much? When is enough enough, in terms of pain? I'm ... *sighs* I'm practically crying right now, it hurts so much.

And yet, I don't really want to go to the ER, but I will if I need to. I just... don't apparently know when need is. I literally don't.

The pain is radiating up into my neck and down my arm, I can barely lift a glass of juice, and it just HURTS.

HAH! I'm done. *clutches shoulder and falls over*

So. The move went well - long, but well. I honestly feel more at home up here, in small-town America, than I ever did back in Colorado. I hope I can stay here for a while, and recharge myself. If I get the job I want though, in a while we're probably going to move down to Redmond. Yes, that Redmond.

However. I have totally blown out my left shoulder. It would have to be that one [I'm a lefty]. I can barely move it, and, in fact, it's why I'm up at such an ungodly hour. Thing is, the doctor's don't know what I did. The X-Rays were normal, the MRI was normal. So now they're probably thinking it's all in my head and I'm drug seeking. Which I'm not, thanks. The only reason I'm taking the vicodin at all is so I can get a modicum of sleep every night.

I have another appointment on Wednesday with a new doctor. This one has a special background in Rheumatology, and so if this is somehow connected with my fibro, she should be able to help. I'm also looking for some refills and a referral to a shrink.


First: I'm going to be making a quilt! It's a very simple pattern, just 2 1/2" strips sewn together and made into blocks. I like it a lot, and we chose the fabrics yesterday. There are a lot of... erm, shall we say, shiny fabrics in there. :D

Second: I'm doing National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel [or more!] in the month of November. I've tried it before, when I was working at Dish the first time, and failed spectacularly. Now, however, I'm over 30,000 words into it, making me well over goal. I think I can do it, I really do!

Third: Job hunting sucks, but at least I have backup if it takes too long. I'm really gunning to do what [ profile] thunderbird8 does - game testing for Nintendo. I know it's not all fun and games, but it seems like it'll be a better atmosphere than most of my other jobs have been. I had an orientation "first interview" there a week and a half ago, and now I'm just waiting to hear back to see if they want to do a second interview. And yes, still looking for jobs while I wait.

So I just had the mother of all workups done by my doctor. I am now positively diagnosed as being pre-diabetic.


I now have to make a million and one changes to my life. I can't believe this is happening. I never expected it to rear up like this.

Turns out it's most likely not neuro, but was some strange form of migraine. After a visit to the ER [conveniently located less than five minutes from my house!], a drug cocktail and a CAT scan, that was the determination.

I now have a nice supply of Imitrex, and have to schedule an appointment with an ophthamologist just to make sure it's nothing else.

Never, ever thought I'd say it, but ... thank God it was only a headache, instead of, say ... a tumor. Gah.

uh oh

I am concerned worried frightened scared out of my pain-fearing mind.

It feels as though 6 months worth of muscular degeneration happened in my right leg in two days. For those who don't know, in the fall of 2004 I managed to completely screw up my left hip and was on crutches for 5 months, with a nasty nasty limp for another 5 months after that. I'm getting the "muscles won't support anything at times" feeling in my right leg.

It's like ... um, running down my glute all the way to my knee that I've got this problem. As if I needed more health issues. Right, yeah. I've got school, scholarships to finish, auditions to get ready for, WORK, etc etc.

Lovely. And I have no insurance to cover seeing the doctor.


I think I need some lubbin' right now.
