Patience 

Well it seems as though my Episcleritis is flaring again. The other night I rubbed my eyes in bed. Apparently I rubbed them too hard because my right eye was killing me for the rest of the night. The pain was even keeping me from sleeping. 

But even before that, I began to suspect my eye going haywire since I had plenty of eye goobs & my eyes had a secretion that I kept trying to wipe away (different than watery eyes). 

Yesterday morning I woke up to find my right eyelid swollen. Since this is all new to me I have no idea what I am supposed to be doing before it gets too worse. I bought some regular eye drops but am not used to using them yet so I haven’t used them very much. Hmmmm… I suppose I should be taking some Naproxen (aka Aleve) during this time… 

My swollen eyelid did not stop me from getting my baby some treats yesterday. I struggled trying to decide which big name company to go to. I don’t like PetSmart for the reason that they discriminate & will not allow any “bully breeds” attend their daycare (FYI-American Bulldogs are considered a bully breed). I think it is utter bullshit because bully breeds already have a tough enough time with discrimination. So for that reason, I like to shop at Petco. However, I like PetSmart’s toy/treat selection better. :( This trip I decided to go with PetSmart. 

I ended up spending much more than planned (usual how it is) but I figured it has been a while since I have spoiled her this much. One item I wanted to make sure to get was a rawhide bone. Yes, I know some of you are against them but it’s a good energy outlet for her on my bad days when I can’t walk/play with her. And yes, I supervise when she is chewing on them. 

I only gave her half of the bone yesterday and set it on the book stand. This morning it took me a couple seconds to figure out why she laid next to the book stand and not me. 

Ahhhhhh food always wins. :)





A new Lupus symptom for me

An update with a new Lupus symptom that I have been dealing with

Originally posted on sdloopy:

Upon waking on Sunday, February 1st, I looked at the bathroom mirror and groaned. Pink eye. Awesome. The weather was super crappy and I was trying to decide if I wanted to go into acute care. I figured it could wait another day but texted my mom to let her know that I would be needing a ride some time on Monday. She mentioned she had the grandkids so it would be easier if we went on this crappy weather day. So I gave in and she told me she would be on her way to pick me up.

Once I saw that she was at my place, I quickly went to her vehicle and opened the door.

“Here,” mom said while thrusting black gloves in my face. “I am NOT getting sick and I don’t want your germs.” I looked at her. Her eyes went wide and she said…

Wordless Wednesday – Bed

You won’t believe this. My laptop is not working AGAIN. I can thank Windows for it this time, for corrupting my computer while giving it an “update.” Grrrr! I am not happy! Ever since November I have been dealing with my laptop. So I will be bringing it in to be fixed AGAIN. This time however, I am taking it somewhere different & where I know they do a good job.

*sigh* I usually try to do WW on my laptop since it’s easier but this will have to do for now.

Storm was all snuggled in my bed about ready to sleep and I started to snap some shots. She gave this look which I’m pretty sure means, ‘LEAVE.ME.ALONE.’ Hehe! Bless her heart for looking so cute when she’s mad…
