I have CRPS -- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, is a rare neurological disease that can be brought on by a fracture, sprain, bruise, or no apparent reason. I have a love for anything Kombi and love the beach, and dream one day of owning a cottage by the sea. I am going to be moving to the Gold Coast by 2017, where the temperature is much better for my CRPS - why so long? Because I want to come off all my meds and finish my degree first.
A small update, not much has happened with me, went to my psychologist today, I only have 2 more sessions with her and thats it for now, unless ACC will pay for some more, after the next two, I really don't think I need her anymore for now. She is really happy on how I am heading, and today we talked about how far I have come in the few years I have been seeing her :)
Not much else is happening, started walking again, still studying hard, tomorrow I get my hair done, Friday get my eyebrows done which are a mess, then next week nails get touched up and I will feel like a new woman again :)
Another vlog, this one is about me, as I have some new watchers and viewers on my youtube channel :)
A few weeks ago, 'tarte' had a 30% 0f sale, so I just had to purchase of course, as tarte happens to be one of favourite makeup brands, and yes they are cruelty free :)
So anyway I did a haul of what I got, please ignore the lighting etc, am still learning where the best place to vlog is :)
Enjoy and please don't forget to like and subscribe :)
My next vlog will be abit about me, for the new people watching my vlogs :)
Onto other stuff, all is going pretty well now the meds have kicked in again, I managed to get an extension on one of my essays which was no-where near a pass, so that is great, will redo that this week. Tomorrow I am going to start walking again, and of course Miss Chico will come with me, will need to build my fitness up again but I did it before, I can do it again :)
Well after a few rough weeks, I have had to make a decision and I am going to be increasing the methadone again.... I tried but it was not the right time.
Symptom's of the CRPS pre: methadone were coming back, the pain was getting unbearable, the burning was increasing, I was focusing so much on the pain that my study was falling behind. I started dropping things, I fell over twice today as my balance was becoming unstable, all things that were happening before the methadone. It now makes me realise how much the methadone was helping me.... I could no longer leave the house in case I fell in the mall, or supermarket - not a good look trust me ;)
So after many tears and a talk with David, we have decided to increase the methadone again, and then see how things are in a month or two.
I feel felt like a failure, but am slowly getting over that....
How does this affect Aussie etc, well hopefully nothing will really change there. Anyway just a little update, will do a vlog in a couple of days time when I am up to talking without turning into a blubbering mess :)
Oh and to top things MIL has gone back into hospital again this morning... :(
