I’m Back!

Sorry I have been away from my blog. Had some medical issues, painted and fixed up my office, and then my computer died. I so wanted to give up. After a small pity party and encouragement from my husband…I am back.

Medical Issues:

I have an autoimmune disease called CIDP – Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy. It is the chronic version of GBS. I was first diagnosed with GBS – Guillain-Barre Syndrome in July 2011. In October 2011 my diagnoses was changed from GBS to CIDP. Here is a website for all information on GBS/CIDP

I receive IVIG – Intravenous Immune  Globulins – infusions for three days, every three weeks. The common side effects are flu like symptoms and migraines. I have notice that for me, when the weather changes the side effects hit me harder. With the weather changes here in Las Vegas, the side effects have hit me harder recently.

Make Over For Office:

Since I was down with side effects, my husband decided it was the right time to paint and fix up my office for me. I pick the paint color of Twilight Mist and the hubs did the rest. Here are some pictures.

The hubby did a real good job. Loved how it turned out.

Computer Crash:

I started writing again for about a week and then my computer crashed. Then I had a bad reaction to the side effects of the IVIG. I was so disappointed and just wanted to give up. After a small pity party, I now have my computer back and I’m feeling better.

I’m excited to be writing again. Have a great day.
