Being chronically ill
I am chronically ill and it’s a big part of my life. Since I’ll be blogging about a lot of personal things on this blog I thought it would be handy to write a little article about this! That way you guys can read about it.
Let’s first start with explaining what I actually have. I have a couple of diseases that make my life just a little bit more difficult. They make it difficult to go to school a full five days a week for example, to go out on the weekends, go to themeparks or even simple things like walk the stairs. I’ll try to explain my diseases to you guys.
This is the disease that causes me the most pain, which is why I am telling you about this one first. Fibromyalgia is a disease that causes fatigue, musscle pain, joint pain, trouble with sleeping, low pain-treshold and a problem with concentrating (Also called Fibro Fog or Brain Fog). It has many more symptoms that come with it, but these are the main ones. Sadly enough there is no cure, but it’s managable with medication, regular exercize (This has to happen at the Physiotherapist), food supliments and lots of rest.
This one is just annoying, really. I mean, having trouble breathing sucks big time. I have the chronic variant, just saying. And the one where it just hurts like hell when you exercise (goes great with the Fibro treatment!). But it’s perfectly managable with medication luckily!
I don’t only have Asthma.. My lungs decided to be a real pain in the ass and develope Hyperventilation Syndrome as well. It’s basically that when I stress I have this really fast breathing that mostly result in having trouble with breathing. In my case this also means having a Asthma Attack to deal with.
Irritatable Bowel Syndrome
Okay, this is probably the least of my troubles actually. It simply means I have trouble going to the toilet (real talk, sorry!) and that I have a lot of stomachpain that I have to deal with. But I’ve got medication just in case so it’s all good.
Irregular Blood Sugar
Luckily, I am not diabetic. But my blood sugar isn’t a real party either. I’m on the watch list for diabetic, so they’re checking it every six months or so. I’m happy that they are checking it regulary. Shaking, sweating, a lot of toilet visits, extreme hunger or thirst, dizziness. Sometimes it’s difficult to know if it’s either a high or low bloodsugar but usually I figure it out somehow.
Well, I think this will be my most infomation filled post I’m going to post on here, but now you have an idea what is going on in my life! Thank you for reading!
