I could party all weekend and think nothing of it. I could live on a couple of hours sleep a night. My only concerns were drinking a little too much and making myself a little bit sick! Now I'm faced with a long list of hazards that I'd never needed to consider before..
I started my period on Sunday and I'm convinced that it set my facial pain off.
I feel sick all the time, but usually when I'm lying down, or first thing in a morning, or in the evening.. Yes, basically all the time. I have no idea why, doctors don't know why and I've just given up trying to get to the root cause! However, over the last few years, I have collected a few handy ways in which I deal with nausea..
I don't see how this is a fun game.
I would have been happy to lie in bed forever.
I often feel that I have to justify my medical needs more than some other people, because mine isn't recognised anywhere by anyone! I always find myself thinking that no one has even heard of it, unless they personally know someone with it.
I recently posted a picture on my instagram of a pile of Salivix boxes on my bed. Salivix are some sweets that help stimulate saliva and I think they're actually recommended for cancer patients. No one had heard of them, but plenty of people were struggling along with the dry mouth side effect of medication.
