Tis me...BOGUSANNIE....yup I know, you are all about to drop from heart failure, sorry.
I have been going through a bout of rough times. Physically.
NO!!!!! I have NOT abandoned my weight loss journey and my new lifestyle. It was simply put on hold for most of October.
As far as goals met in October, I DID have several, however I also had several unmet. My health kicked the crap outta me and I am slowly trying to get back on that bike so to speak.
I was sick with an ear infection and sinus infection for a week or more, which seriously was fine. I could have done without however it didn't kill me to be down and out for a bit. I suffered through vertigo during that bout but other than that, all was OK.
I started to feel well enough to have my personal trainer back to the house last Tuesday and I had an AWESOME workout. I was a bit tired but that was to be expected after having over a week off due to the infections.
Late that evening I was chatting on the phone with my sister PLANETSPARKY when I started to feel 'off' so I hung up and went to eat a piece of toast and peanut butter. Before I even made it back upstairs I got violently ill and couldn't see or walk. I called my son's dad and told him that something was SERIOUSLY wrong with me, I was losing all feeling in my face and pain was shooting down my arm and my toes and fingers were tingling.
He told me to call 911 so I did and ended up at the hospital. The paramedics were convinced it was an anxiety attack, but I KNEW it wasn't. I have had one of those in the past and THIS was not it.
I continued to be violently ill into the morning. I had a CT Scan and a spinal tap to rule out brain aneurysm and stroke. When all was said and done the doctors figure it PROBABLY was a Basilar Artery Migraine.
NOT COOL! it mimics a stroke and is REALLY painful. I am still suffering from facial numbness. It feels like when you go to a dentist and get freezing and it NEVER wears off.
My balance is still off as is my coordination. My typing skills and focus are WAY off as well. I am back to work but seriously doing not much of anything, it's way too difficult. My hands get sore typing and I still can't feel my tongue or face.
In fact I burnt my mouth on Monday eating soup. I didn't realize it was so hot. On a positive note, I didn't feel it! LOL
So i am back...but not fully recovered. I didn't do my 8K Race on the 30th nor do I think I will be able to even attempt my 5K Race this weekend.
Very depressing I tell ya! But on a positive note...i haven't gained one ounce through it all!!!
Thanks for all your email and comments while I was away....I checked in daily just couldn't muster up any energy to write....my vision has been horrible, and headaches and migraines plentiful!
I promise to get caught up soon!
Love you all,
RUN RUN RUN!!
PS...it just took me an hour to write THIS blog...I am soooo slow now!
UPDATE: Nov 3 @ 2PM
I have always suffered from migraines, since I was a little girl...this felt NOTHING like any migraine I have ever had. Apparently when you suffer from them as much as I do, they end up morphing...NASTY!!!!
