blog status update

By | Jul 7, 2012

I know people are wondering what is happening with this blog. If you know me personally, or have even googled my name, you know I have had health struggles my whole life, primarily with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.

About 2 years ago things became much worse, and for the last year I’ve spent the majority of my time in bed. I’ve been looking, though, for ways to work from bed. I’m working with some voice recognition software and other tools, and I hope I’ll be able to take up blogging again soon.

Thank you to all of you who have called and emailed to check on me and for being so supportive of me and the blog. It means the world to me.

I hope to be blogging for you again soon.

    Hopr you get better soon.
    I am looking for administrative assistant job recently and your blog has helped me to get an insight of what this job is about. Thanks!

    I’m sorry to hear that your health has deteriorated. I too suffer from Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. I just wanted to try and help by letting you know about my own treatment that has helped me immensely.
    For the fibromyalgia I was prescribed Lyrica for many years, but now I’m on Neurontin because after about 8 years the Lyrica wasn’t working as well as it use to. I’m considering going back on Lyrica though, I believe it was helping somewhat better than the Neurontin is.
    For the chronic fatigue I have always take provigil for it. There is also a newer version of it called NuVigil. I’m not really sure which has helped me more.
    These medications have been a life saver. Like you I was almost always in bed with the pain and fatigue. Now that I’m am doing better I would love to become an administrative assistant. I’m currently taking courses for my degree in Office Administration.
    I still have bad days of course, but all-in-all things have turned around for me tremendously.
    I hope this advice will help you some. I know what it’s like not being able to function in “the real world”.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Elizabeth. It’s so easy to feel alone when you have disabilities like this.

    My husband took Lyrica, but like you, it stopped working after a while. I can’t take it because of my stomach problems.

    I haven’t heard of provigil. I need to look it up. Thanks for the information.
