Tough Moments.... for me illness, I think Imay have had the West Nile Virus - and get some "grief" seems to be seeping in...

I realize I've not been here and I am so sorry I've not been keeping the blog fresh with new posts as of late. But,  spent a week (started last Sunday early morning) so ill, that I was not sure what was wrong with me. Yet, even though I thought several times of going to the Urgent Care, due to the tremendous amount of antibiotics and corticosteroids my body had endured over the past almost a year, I wanted to try and allow what bit of immune system I have left to try and fight it.... it is taking 6 or more days to begin to feel somewhat better, but from severe headache that lasted for almost 4 days, stiff neck, fever, severe pain in every muscle and joint, feeling like my joints were trying to "lock down at times", severe fatigue worse than I have endured in a long time, not have any strength to even go out to the store, or barely walk across my little home.... my head felt as if "sand" was in it, and when I moved it would sound as if it was "sifting" through my head, very swollen lymph glands in my neck, sore throat a bit, and pain in my rib cage in the back, all symptoms of many things.... but I read last night we have had a HIGH RATE of "positive West Nile Mosquito's" found just in the past couple of weeks...some seemingly close to my home, but they found them in 19 different areas of town, so one bite from anywhere around town by one could have kicked it off...


I cannot "be sure" that is what it was, BUT after reading that, then the symptoms, and knowing that my immune system is so "not there" I feel like that probably what was making me so ill this past 6 plus days... I am "better" today, but my energy is slim to none, and "mentally" I am "not wanting" to do anything... which is NOT like me...

So, I am not sure if some of the "grief" of losing my Mom in June is beginning to truly "hit" me... or if it is a mixture of several things, including being ill...


BUT, hang in here with me... I am HERE AND WILL SOON BE BACK POSTING INTERESTING articles, facts, and blogging away again....


Have a good weekend,  Rhia
