Living life with multiple chronic illnesses…. and some other stuff!

Category Archives: Photography

The last few days have been very stressful for me. Finally went to boston to the pain clinic. Basically said that I most likely have Fibromyalgia as well as EDS. I’m not suprised. Referred me to Physical/Occupation Therapy and gave an Rx for a new TENS unit. I’m seeing the OT next week. Hopefully I can get something for my hands. The ring splints is what I am hoping for, I think it will help TREMENDOUSLY with typing, crafting, art, etc, etc. They also what me to see their psychologist for a opiod risk assessment… I already see a psychologist and a psychiatrist, so I don’t get why they can’t do the assessment. Whatever. I’ll do it. For now they don’t want to change my pain meds until I have the assessment. Fine. They did say that increasing my Effexor will help with the pain, so I am going to talk to my drs about that. Anyway, here is a picture while waiting for the train into Boston.


I finally got the film back on from the roll I started way back in October. Not everything is scanned in yet. Just a few. However, the scans don’t do the actual prints any justice. For one thing they aren’t Sepia toned… they are actually B&W. Anyway, I will post a few more when I have some time.

Right now I am reading a lot. Current read is Girl with the Pearl Earing . So far I have been liking it.

Other news, I got some really good ankle stabilizers today from my dr. They are the AirSport by Aircast. You can check them out at the AirCast website. She wanted to hook me up with better wrist braces but they didn’t carry any in my size… I will have to see if the people at the pain clinic can custom make them for me. Which, by the way, I will be going to on Monday the 7th! Whoot!

Now I must go rest…

So I’ve decided to make a Zazzle Shop along with Etsy. Zazzle will be for my photography… to be put on notecards, posters, prints, etc. It’s a really neat thing… I’m currently in the process of making business cards for myself, don’t have the money yet to order them. You will find the link in the LINKS section of this… whoot.

Following the leader….

Anyway, the past few days I have been feeling artistic, so I went for a walk and took some pictures of these adorable guys. A house down my street has the cutest garden set up with little creatures like these all around. She even has a swinging gnome from a bush (I also have a picture of that). I have been practicing my painting, I don’t know if I like how it’s coming out, but I guess that’s why they say to practice…

Seems, though, that I tried to do too much in the last few days because I subluxed my shoulder, yes… indeed. It hurts… not as much as last night, but still hurts quite a bit. I wanted to get this post up, but now I am going to sit carefully on the couch, hook up my TENS unit, and work on the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer (even though it’s young adult, it’s AWESOME.)
