I’m not okay and that’s okay

Hey everyone❤️

Here’s an update on on me:

Physically:

Fibromyalgia is killing me. I have been in so much pain. I have still gone to school and done my homework but it’s been rough. On top of that, I am having stomach issues. I will probably have to have a colonoscopy. I have had blood work done, I am having to do an x-Ray next week. I see my GI doctor next week to see if he wants me to do a colonoscopy. So that’s been stressful. My stomach and back are hurting.

Mentally:

I am stressed, down, overwhelmed, sad, exhausted, and maybe depressed. I am stressed and overwhelmed with my health being so bad. I just feel really down every night. I don’t know if I am down due to my health being bad or if I am depressed.

Hopefully next week I will get some answers about my stomach problems.

Till then I am just hanging in there❤️

It’s been rough. I’m exhausted but I will keep going💜

It’s okay not to be okay and right now I am not okay but that’s okay❤️

I will keep going and you keep going to babe💖

Hanging in there

Hey everyone❤️

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Here’s an update on me:

Physically:

Honestly not so good. I have been in a lot of back pain from fibromyalgia. Everyday I hurt and it’s exhausting. I have still been going to school everyday and doing my homework but I am always in pain. It’s been better till this week. This week has been rough. I have been making it but it’s been rough.

Mentally:

I still feel down due to being in so much physical pain but I don’t think I am depressed. So yay!💜 but my anxiety has been really bad. I feel so anxious all the time and it’s been keeping me up at night. I messaged my doctor so hopefully that will help.

This week has been rough but hopefully next week will be better💖

Despite my struggles I am still hanging in there. You hang in there to❤️

Keep going, I believe in you❤️💜💖

A question for all of you!

Hey guys so my question for you is: would you guys be okay if I made this blog more than just my recovery blog? Like I would post my Christian Devotionals. I would just make this blog my author website. I would still update about me but I would also focus on other things. Would you guys be okay with that? Comment below your opinion!❤️ I want to hear for you guys before I make any changes!❤️

By the way I am doing really good💜

The reason why I want to make these changes is because I feel I want to talk more other things than just talk about my mental and physical health. I am more than my illnesses and I want to share that with all of you!💗💕💖

Thank you so much for reading!

Be sure to comment below!❤️

I love you all❤️

Doing better❤️

Hey everyone❤️

So it’s the weekend and I made it through another whole week of school! So far school is going really good. I never thought I could get up and go to school everyday but so far I am doing pretty good at it💜

Here’s the update on me:

Mentally:

I am doing better💗 I have started taking another medicine on Friday and I can already see a different in my mood. Since Friday I haven’t felt depressed. I have been in a good mood😊 so far this medicine is helping and hopefully my mood will just continue to get better and better💜

Physically:

I am still not pain free from fibromyalgia. I am better but not cured. I have pain but it’s honestly not as bad as it used to be. My pain from fibromyalgia has improved. So I can’t complain. I do have my bad days of course. But my pain is manageable and I love it❤️

Honestly I am doing better and I have been feeling pretty happy😊

I enjoy doing school. In my free time I write Christian Devotionals on Wattpad. Here’s the link:. https://www.wattpad.com/user/catyloveswriting

Back in college and still depressed

Hey everyone❤️

So last week I started back at college. I am in my sophomore year in college. All my friends that graduated with me are in their junior year of college but I have had to take college slower due to getting diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

But anyways school is going good. This semester I am taking English and Math. So far I am really enjoying it. My classes are both on campus so I have been going somewhere everyday now. Which has been hard on my fibromyalgia.

For those of you who don’t know my major is in English and Technology Writing. I love writing books and my day job when I graduate college will be to work as a technological writer for a company.

But back to how I am doing.

I am still really depressed. I don’t feel depressed at school which is really good. But everyday I come home from school I feel depressed.

I just feel so down and empty.

I try to not think about how depressed I am by playing on my phone.

But everyday I just feel so depressed.

I can’t run from it or hide from it.

I just face it and deal with it.

I’m not okay. It’s okay not to be okay.❤️

My physical pain from fibromyalgia is doing good. It’s been really hard getting up and going to school everyday. Some days I hurt REALLY bad but I go to school anyways.

My pain is not gone but it’s managed. It’s SO much better so I can’t complain.

Even though I am depressed, I am making it. Everyday I am hanging in there.❤️

Being depressed isn’t easy but I am still living my life despite it.❤️

I will just keep going and I hope you will too❤️

Amazing News!😱❤️

Hey everyone! I have some amazing news!😱

So yesterday I went to another rheumatologist that I have been waiting all summer to see. He is ACTUALLY going to HELP ME!!!😱😱😱😍😍❤️❤️❤️

I FINALLY found a doctor after two years of searching!!😍💜

He believes I have fibromyalgia so he put me on some new medicines and that medicine has already started to help💖💜

He also believes I have sleep apnea so he is setting up for me to have a sleep study done to see if I do have it.

He doesn’t believe I have any form of arthritis and he thinks I just have fibromyalgia.

He has taken my case and I am so happy about that!☀️💜

After two years and going through six other rheumatologists, but finally I have answers and a doctor who cares about me!😍💜

I am already feeling better pain wise today. My pain has been better and my mood is much better. I feel like a whole new person now that I am not in much pain. I still have pain but it’s sooo much better❤️

Thank you so much for reading and for all your support throughout these six years I have been blogging. You all are amazing and I love you so much❤️💜💖

-xoxo Caty❤️💜💖☀️

I’m depressed (again)

Hey everyone, I am so sorry it’s been so long since I have updated on here but honestly I haven’t been doing very good. But here’s an update on me:

Mentally:

I have become depressed again. I feel down, sad, and depressed all the time. I cry a lot. I have been situationally depressed since fibromyalgia but now I am chemical depressed due to having bipolar type one. It’s really hard being depressed again. I always feel tired and run down. I try to put on a brave face for my family but honestly, I am not okay.

Physically:

I am still in unbearable pain from fibromyalgia. Tomorrow I see another rheumatologist which I am really hoping he can help me. So please keep me in your thoughts and prayers for tomorrow. I have waited all summer for this appointment and I am hoping it has been worth the wait. But still everyday I am in unbearable pain mostly in my back and legs.

I am sorry if this post is depressing but it’s the truth about how I am doing❤️

Just please keep me in your thoughts and prayer💖

Thank you so much for reading. You guys are amazing. I love each and every one of you😘❤️

-xoxo Caty💜💖❤️
