You Don’t Look Sick…Auto Immune Disease

Do I need to be 6ft under in order for me to be consider a sick person. Nowadays when people are sick, non cancerous they look like me. They are fighting everyday living with some type of illness that they have been diagnosed with. If you know someone who have any type of an auto immune disease try to be there for them. Just like you show emotions for a celebrity who is sick and in the hospital the world hashtag and go hard, show that same support for your friend. Instead of suggesting they go out with you in the girls after work offer to maybe have something delivered to them. Maybe get together with friends in skip Starbucks for a week in treat your bestie to a one day maid service or if she has young kids treat her kids to healthy food/snacks or some type of educational entertainment that they can do at home while mommy is not feeling her best. Don’t wait for the person who don’t look sick to be under the grave to finally wanna step up. Real friends show up before the tombstone does.

Health: Today Is My Schedule CT Scan

 

I promised you that I would share with you everything that’s going on in my life, good or bad. This morning I had to go in to do another CT Scan, I get them often so I’m actually use to it. Today my Pulmonologist is checking on my lungs because I’ve been having breathing problems, strong chest pains, and shortness of breath especially when walking and going upstairs. Wish me luck that my results come back with no problems.

My New List Of Meds So I Can Get Through The Day

Since I didn’t get any better on Monday I had to go see my doctor to see what’s going on. Having a weak immune system my body picks up anything and everything. A simple cold for an average person can go away after a few days of cold medicine and rest. For me it turns into a respiratory infection, acute bronchitis  and acute sinus. 
Back home in bed resting organizing my new list of medications on my phone so I’ll remember to take them at the right time. Can I just vent in say I’m so tired of taking meds. I know I need them if I want to continue to work doing what I love but some days I just hate it. 

It’s That Time Of Year…Flu Flu Go Away

I was so excited that I was feeling better but after working with a few sick people on set Sunday night I had a relapse in this time this cold/flu is worst.
