Let's be honest nights can sometimes suck! No drifting to sleep in bless full wonder. No getting comfortable. Oh, and if the pain were not bad enough I can multiple heart palpitations! Nothing like drifting off to sleep, and then being ripped awake by a horrifying symptom. If that were not bad enough I also kept my husband awake! Sorry!
Despite, sleeping horribly my morning was wonderful! I was able to put the rest of the seeds in the ground for fall harvest! I can not wait to eat some home grown pumpkin, and butternut squash.
Today I actually felt halfway decent, so I used the day of how I saw fit. That sentence would make you think I had a big hoorah kind of day, nope it was down to business with laundry. Unfortunately, the washer broke so we had to go to the laundromat. People if I leave you with one tip today this is it, buy a washer! If you live in a small apartment look at a compact washer that you can hook up to the sink. Think about the money you would save! My mind was blown by the exorbitant cost of doing just four loads! After laundry was done I watched a little television, and then went to bed. I watched Netflix, and crocheted (I am working on something for special people in my life) until my husband returned from work.
That brings me to today. Last night was brutal. I hurt, perhaps due to overdoing it yesterday, and my husband sounded like a mack truck doing 70 on a highway. If you did not get that last reference, my beloved snores! Sometimes, I think living right next to a train track would be quieter. However, my husband is amazing and I would not change a single thing about him, yes that includes the snoring. Needless to say, I ended up sleeping most of the morning, and part of the afternoon because I had work late tonight.
I am rather blessed with my job! I get to sit, watch Netflix, and crochet. For a Chiari patient this job is awesome! I do not have to deal with loud noises, the temperature is great, my co-workers are amazing, and I get to take it easy! I love it here, and my boss is AWESOME! I also get to meet really great people. However, today was a little rough.
I sometimes deal with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), probably due to Chiari. Gross, right?!? Today, was a bad day to deal with IBS. My stomach hurt, and I knew what was about to hit. I look at the clock and it is 530pm. NOOOO!!! I had to be at work in less than 30 minutes. I text my boss, and she tells me it is okay she can have someone fill in for me if need be. I told you she is cool! Thankfully, the worst of the bout happened before work. Chiari is fun, is it not?!? If we do not have to deal with other aches and pains we have to deal with stomach issues as well. Thankfully, I made it to work just 30 minutes after my shift started, but today was not the day to deal with IBS!
