Exciting new adventure!❤️💜💖

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! Here’s an update on me:

Amazing news: I got accepted into a school of ministry!!😊😊❤️😍 so instead of going to college I will be following my dreams and go to a school of ministry so I can get a degree and work in the church❤️💜💖 I am very excited!🧡🧡

Good news: my nerve helped! After my nerve block it worked for a few hours. Then the next few days I noticed I hurt less. So I have another on Thursday, and my doctor said as I do more I will see more positive affects❤️💜💖

Mentally:

I have been doing great!❤️ I have been really happy💖 I have decided that no matter what kind of pain I am in, I am going to live a happy and wonderful life! I have decided to choose to accept my illness but still love my life☀️

Physically:

My nerve block helps some but I am still in a lot of pain. It’s been rough. The weather has been bad so my pain is worse. But my tens unit has been helping which is really good. But it’s tough but I am making it❤️💖

I am on a new adventure to enjoy life despite fibromyalgia! I am so excited to go to the school of ministry in a few weeks. I am happy❤️💖💜☀️💝

Hoping this nerve block works❤️

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! I hope you have had an amazing week. Here is an update on me:

Big news: tomorrow I have my first nerve block. I am excited, scared, nervous, but mostly just hoping it works💖

Mentally:

Even though my physical pain has been unbearable but mood has been really good. I don’t feel depressed which is amazing and really helps. It’s nice to say I feel good mentally🧡

Physically:

Awful. Horrible. Unbearable. I have been without my tens unit because my last one broke (UGH) so I have been in more pain than normal. I get my new tens unit Monday (YAY!). So I haven’t been doing much because my pain has been so bad. So yeah it’s been awful.

I also have some good news, I have applied to go into a school of ministry. Hopefully I will find out tomorrow if I am being accepted or not. So I may not be going to college this spring but instead following my dream and going into a school of ministry. So fingers crossed I get in!❤️💜💖🧡

Thank you so much for reading! Please keep me in your prayers and/or thought for tomorrow for my nerve block.

I love you all! See you again next week💖

-xoxo Caty❤️💖💜🧡

I have hope!☀️

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas❤️💚 I am so sorry I kinda disappeared for a while. I have been out of town for a week so I have been crazy busy.

I have some exciting news: on the Monday before Christmas I saw a new doctor (the eighth one I have seen) he is actually going to treat me! Yay!☀️ after New Years, I am starting nerve blocks. I am really excited, nervous, anxious, and hopeful. It feels really good to finally have a doctor willing to work with me💖

Mentally:

I am much better mentally. Even though the stress of traveling, I haven’t felt depressed. My mood has been really great❤️

Physically:

Horrible. Just horrible. Fibromyalgia and traveling in a car for seven straight hours don’t mix well. I am hurting sooo bad. My back is killing me and my tens unit broke. Of course! So now I get a new tens unit soon thankfully. But man, I just hurt so bad.

Thank you so much for reading! I am really excited about this new year. This new year I am focusing on hope, joy, and gratitude! I am going to make it a wonderful year despite my pain❤️💖💚💜

Have an amazing day! I love you all!❤️

I’m depressed again

Hey everyone! Welcome back! I am finally on Christmas break! Yay!

I have some good news: Since this summer I applied to go into a school of ministry. I didn’t hear anything back from them so I went to college in the fall. Well the school of ministry emailed me last week and I have an interview tomorrow to see if I get accepted to go into a school of ministry!❤️💜💜💖💙 I am very excited and really hope I get in!❤️❤️

Here’s an update on me:

Mentally:

Honestly, I am not doing good at all. During the day I feel okay mentally but as the day goes on I get to feeling more and more sad. I don’t know why I am sad I just feel so sad. I mean it’s Christmas time, I am out of school, and I should feel happy but, I don’t. It’s been happening a lot, pretty much everyday. I might be getting depressed again. Which is really frustrating because life is hard enough not depressed. But I truly think I am chemically depressed. I just feel so sad, numb, empty, and I just want to cry. So yeah, I think I am depressed.

Physically:

My pain has been horrible. I have been seeing my chiropractor three times a week and sometimes it helps going and sometimes it doesn’t. I am having to wear my tens unit all the time. I see new pain doctor next week which will hopefully help. But yeah, it’s horrible.

I am really not okay.

I feel horrible.

But I will keep going.

I am sorry if this is depressing but this is truly how I feel.

Thank you for reading! I love you all❤️

It’s been rough

Hey everyone! Welcome back! Here is an update on me:

Mentally:

I have been up and down. This week I have been super stressed because finals in next week. Most of the day I have been really down and Thursday I had a breakdown. But I saw my therapist and felt better. I just most feel stressed because of finals and down because of my physical pain being so bad. I am hanging in there. It’s been rough.

Physically:

I have been in a lot of physical pain due to fibromyalgia. I am tiring to get in to see a pain doctor since my last doctor didn’t work out. So far the pain doctor hasn’t called me back. I have just been hurting all day every day. It’s been rough tough and I have been so tired due to how much pain I am in. I have been having to take naps due to being so sleepy. I found this cream that has been helping but only helps for an hour. I have been going to see my chiropractor three days a week and that helps for a few hours. I have been wearing my tens unit a lot.

It’s been really rough but I have been making it. I am mostly just ready for finals to be over with and for Christmas break! So next week I will be on Christmas break!❤️ yay!❤️

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have an amazing day! I love you all❤️

Trying to hold on

Hey everyone!❤️ welcome back! Before I update you on me, I want to share some positive things that are happening:

I finally found a good Chircopractor who is really helping me. I have had a wonderful thanksgiving. My college semester is almost over and I have A’s and B’s. So yay!❤️

Here’s the update on me:

Mentally:

I have been feeling really depressed. I know I feel depressed because I am in so much physical pain due to fibromyalgia. But it’s still really hard. Last night I cried and cried because I was so sad and in so much pain. But thankfully my family was there to listen and love me. I feel really depressed just because of my pain but pain is pain. It’s been really rough.

Physically:

My physical pain is unbearable. I felt sick to my stomach last night because I was hurting so bad. I am in constant chronic pain. It’s never ending and it’s unbearable. It’s been really rough and hard.

I have been facing a lot but I will keep going. People keep telling me to be positive and happy but I don’t know how because I am in so much pain. I know there are good things in my life but all I feel is pain.

But I will hold on. I will keep going❤️

I am sorry if this update was depressing but it’s just how I have been truly feeling.

Thank you for listening! I love you all!❤️💖💙💜🧡 I will see you again next week!❤️

Not doing good at all

Hey everyone❤️ welcome back! Here’s an update from me:

Mentally:

Honestly I am very depressed. I know I am probably depressed due to being in so much unbearable pain from fibromyalgia. But depression is depression and it’s sucks. I still keep going: go to school, do my homework, shower, do chores, use my coping a skills, but I still feel depressed. I’m not okay. I’m not alright. But I am making it. I am not giving up (even though I think about giving up a lot). I just keep going❤️

Physically:

My pain from fibromyalgia is unbearable. I am in constant chronic pain every minute of every day. I hurt so bad and it’s makes me so depressed. I feel sad, depressed, and I cry a lot. I am going to see a pain management clinic soon so hopefully that will help. I am seeing a new Chircopractor on Monday. So hopefully, something will help. Ugh. I just feel horrible. But I am making it. I am just taking it one day at a time💜

I do have some good news: my some of my poems are going to be published in a book by a poetry publishing company! Yay!❤️

So I am really not okay.

I’m really not alright.

But I am making it.

I am hanging in there.

Just taking each day, one minute at a time💖

I’m not okay

Hey everyone! Welcome back! Here’s an update on me:

Mentally:

I am really struggling. I am feeling down and depressed a lot. Probably because I am working hard in therapy on overcoming the abuse I went through. It’s been really hard. Now in therapy I am talking about the lies I have believe about myself. Honestly I am not doing good mentally. I still going to school everyday and doing my homework. But I still feel very down and depressed a lot. I know I probably feel depressed because my physical pain from fibromyalgia has been really bad. So I am not okay.

Physically:

I am in a lot of pain everyday. I finally got my new tens unit which has been helping. My doctor increased my pain medicine that has helped but I am still in a lot of pain. I still believe that I have fibromyalgia because five doctors have told me I do. No matter what illness I have I am still in constant chronic pain everyday.

I am really not okay. I know it’s okay not to be okay❤️

I am sorry if this upload was depressing but honestly it how I feel❤️

Just keep me in your thoughts and prayers❤️

I love you all and will update again next week❤️

-xoxo Caty❤️

Amazing news❤️💜💖

Hey everyone! I hope you are doing well! I have some very good news to share with all of you:

I saw my doctor for my fibromyalgia last week and he increased my pain medicine. But my doctor believes I don’t have fibromyalgia. He believe my chronic pain is due to my sleep apnea. He told me of a mouth guard I can get that will help. He believes that with my mouth guard and using my sleep apnea machine, I can get better! He said it will take a few months but I can get better and maybe even be pain free!!!😊😊💛💛❤️❤️

I am very excited about that news! I can get better!😊❤️💜💖

Here’s an update on me:

Mentally:

I have been doing okay. In therapy I am working hard on overcoming the abuse I went through. So I have been struggling with overcoming my past. But for the most part, I am really good. My mood has gotten a lot better😊❤️💜💖 I feel happy!❤️💛💖💜

Physically:

I am still in a lot of pain. My tens unit broke and I use it a lot. So that’s been hard because my pain is better with my tens unit. I get a new tens unit on Tuesday so that is good. I have been resting on the heating pad a lot because I have been in a lot of pain. But I am making it. I am hanging in there❤️

Overall I am doing very well and very excited about what the future holds! I am doing really good in college and have made some friends. In the fall I might be doing an internship with my favorite teacher. It’s an internship for English majors (I am an English major). So hopefully I will get the internship!❤️💛💜💖

I am doing really good❤️😊💜💖

Focusing on good❤️

Hey everyone! I hope you are doing well. Here’s an update on me:

Mentally:

This week was tough because in therapy I have been finally talking about the abuse I went through. So this week has been really hard I haven’t been coping very well. I have been really sad and down. But this weekend has been amazing!❤️ I told myself that I am tired of focusing on my pain and problems so this weekend has been amazing because I have been focusing on all my blessings💛 it has really worked I am doing really good🧡

Physically:

This week has been really rough on my fibromyalgia. I have been in a lot of pain this week. But yesterday was a much better day and I really enjoyed. I got a lot of laundry done so that was really good. My pain is better today❤️💜💖💛💙

Focusing on the good things in my life has really been so helpful. I realized how happy I am if I focus on the good and not my problems and pain❤️💜💖🧡💛

I am doing great and I am going to enjoy it❤️
