Half way there!

wednesday.jpgGood afternoon y’all!  I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday! I am beyond excited that this week is almost over and next week is a four-day work week because of the holiday! 

I have honestly had kind of difficult week dealing with pain issues! There is a certain amount of pain that I find tolerable, but then there is another kind that makes me feel absolutely miserable and incredibly fatigued! Even though I have been dealing with a terrible amount of pain that is mixed with headaches and muscle spasms, I have been able to go to work. I did not make it through six hours Monday and Tuesday, but I did today! Of course after whatever hours I do work, I come home and I am absolutely exhausted. But the simple achievements are better than none! There has been another issue I have experienced this week and I have no idea what is causing it. Both Monday and Tuesday while sitting at my desk at work, I had several what seemed to be fainting episodes. It was really scary, but I was thankful I was sitting down. I did call my doctor’s office to let them know about this, but not so surprising they did not call me back. Have any of you ever experienced this before?

I am a pretty resilient person and I never give up on the goals I have for myself!! A while back I had made the goal to work six hours each day, which honestly did not happen at first. However I did not allow that to keep me down for too long  and tried to not view it as failure. I have always been veryresilience1 hard on myself, but seriously that does not help at all. Being too hard on ourselves only sets us up for hard times, which is never good. My goal now is to just continue to always be resilient and keep moving forward! 

I have to say everyone on this blog helps me see the strength I have and keeps me focused on that strength! There are so many incredible people who I have had the pleasure to get to know and I am very thankful for this. There really seems to be so much ugliness in the world today, but y’all allow me to see the good in others!

I hope y’all had a great day and I hope you are feeling well. Thank you for stopping by my site today and I really do encourage your comments. Y’all already know that I do respond as quickly as I possibly can! I hope you have a lovely evening and do what helps you relax! As always I am sending y’all LOTS of ❤love and comfort!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

  1. You are exhausted! Fainting can be caused by a number of things you are aware of, low blood pressure, low blood sugar (are you eating?) but also low iron, low ferritin, anemia… get into that doc and specifically ask them to add you ferritin levels when they check your blood. Take a nap! Just go a little easier on yourself, sweet Alyssa. xo

    • Thank you and I am so sorry you are having dizzy spells. I certainly hope your medical team is a lot more attentive than mind. I am pretty use to my medical team not being supportive, but it will change when I find a better team! I hope you start feeling better. I actually took the day off from work today due to a horrible headache and pain the just will not end. Hopefully after a day of rest I will feel my “normal” self again. I appreciate your comment!

      • My dizzy spells are likely caused by my blood pressure meds. Next visit, I’m asking to change them. I have an absolutely amazing nurse practitioner for my primary care provider who has helped me find sliding scale or even free care for several of my conditions. I wish everyone had an advocate like I do. She’s even managed to send me to people who care as much as she does. Sorry you’re dealing with such indifference. I hope you find someone amazing soon!

    • Thank you sweetie! I actually called out of work today due to a horrible headache that started yesterday and just decided to never leave. Hopefully I will be back to my “normal” self tomorrow. I hope you have a good day!
