I had to go back to last year to see when the last time I posted. DAMN! It’s been a while. What’s worse is that in that last blog post I had intended to actually post more often. I need to stop these once a year posts. Seriously!
So, here we are, and I’m back. I spent most of last year dealing with my asthma. I’ve been taking high doses of prednisone for about a year. If you have never taken this then let me tell you, it sucks! I’ve gained well over 25 pounds and I haven’t seen my jawline in over a year. Moon face and a hump at the base of my neck, not very attractive. I’m also using two different inhalers on a daily basis as well as a medication called Xolair. The Xolair was supposed to help me cut back on the other medications, mainly the prednisone, but it didn’t help. After about a year of this, and only being able to see the pulmonologist occasionally, I decided to just see someone else in the hopes that another doctor can at least give me some answers as to what is going on and not just pump me with medication.
Now, in other news. What else is new, well my hair is thinning. Yup, my hair that I’ve always loved and been so proud of how full and thick it was, is fucking thinning and falling out. At first, it wasn’t too bad, but in the past four months, it’s just gotten really bad. The texture also changed too, and this I blame on the prednisone, as the hair loss. It’s frizzy all the time, nothing I could do helped, so I finally just cut it short. Oddly enough, this has helped a bit. I’ve also been wearing wigs, which I have found to be something I enjoy. I’ll do some posts on the ones I have in the future and post some photos.
All of the furry-butts are doing well and I’m still living in that studio/bedroom efficiency. I am hoping to find a larger place soon. I’m really in need of some more room, and some windows!!! I’d love to have a kitchen again, and a living room, and did I say windows?
I’m also considering revamping the page a bit, but I still like the theme I have so i may just leave it.
