How to bear an illness




















Hello everyone... anyone?

Teddy, and I are moving past a long spell of exhaustion. Hopefully we'll make a schedule that includes blogging. We've missed everyone!




















The chart shows a lot about our main issue. We also discovered I have a huge sensitivity to electronics, and electrical things. My constant research of things on the computer puts me at risk. Imagine that? But if you think about the human brain and the use of chemicals to send electrical impulses to other parts of the body - it's not a far stretch to see the connection.

Maybe I'll write more on this another time. For now, I'm eager to come visit your blogs! It seems like I've been gone forever.

  1. Hope the exhaustion is behind you. Sensitive to electronics? That's about everything these days.
    We have missed you!

  2. Like Alex, I have missed you and hope the exhaustion will pass. I cannot imagine a sensitivity to electronics. What a thing to have in today's lifestyle.

    1. Thanks, Jo. I've always had trouble cranking cars. Sometimes I have to let someone else get it my van and crank it. Then I can drive away. Sounds nuts, I know.

  3. Oh, I had the emf thing, I walked into a casino once and almost fell over. But through emf filters I got that fixed up and it allowed things to ease. Made cassie's issues go away too. Now it's gone for the most part, as there is a theory that those with lots of parasites in them are more likely to have a reaction to electronics because the parasites don't like it and burrow deeper into the skin/nerves/etc. Kill those things and poof, goes away.

    1. Pat, I knew about emf from 1999 and suspected it was affecting me. There are also six cell phone towers around the neighborhood. Don't know about filters. The doctor gives me Benadryl to knock me down for three-four hours.

  4. So sorry to hear about your fibromyalgia. I'm glad you at least know what's wrong and can begin trying to help yourself. (Though I wouldn't recommend staying off the net...) You've been greatly missed! I hope you feel better soon.:)

    1. I was told to unplug everything in the house that I don't use daily. I use my cell phone charger, but only plug it in when I need it. Everything is unplugged from the walls.

    1. I own two wheel-barrows - and they are still not enough to drag my exhausted body around the yard... but I am much better.

    2. I feel with you since I feel similar almost every day and I'm younger than you... Wish we had magical pills for everything ... is Teddy strong enough to wheel you around the yard? :))

    1. Much better and trying to avoid electrical equipment - seems I'm super sensitive to it.

  9. Glad you're back! You missed a lot while you were gone - I became a best-selling author, Patt Hatt got rid of his cat in exchange for a bat and Bryan and Brandon got voted Presidents of Blogger.

  11. It's good to see you! I'm glad you are feeling better. I was wondering where the heck you went.
    My recent shoulder surgery informed me that I can't work on a computer 8 hours a day anymore. I'm really unsure how to proceed with that knowledge, since that's how I make a living. It's all so interwoven.
    I wish the best for you!

    1. Better every day, Chyrs! Geez I blew straight through your summer book tour, though. Hope it worked out well. (smile).

  15. Being sensitive to electronics would give me a very good excuse to move out into the middle of nowhere and become a hermit. That sounds nice. Anyway, hope you feel better and can get back into blogging soon!

  17. In the last month or so my migraines have been really bad. In turn, my fibro symptoms came back. When my migraines were really bad back in 2009-2012 the fibro was a constant. All of the things on your chart were in play for me (and are again right now). Makes it really tough. I hope you're feeling better.

    1. Robin, I so, so feel for you too. I've begun painting again. Just finished a mural on my dining room wall... ships sailing at sunset.

      I plan to post a BOTB Sept. 1st. Hope you're able to as well. (smile)

  18. Hi Dixie. Fybromyalgia is a nasty condition. Is the electrical thing a part of it or is that just you? Anyway it seems that you are moving into a better stage and that's very good to hear. It's nice to hear from you again!

    1. Bazza, I'm not sure about the electrical thing being part of Fibro. I haven't heard anyone else having my same situation. I'll have to research.

      Hope your summer has gone well. We're nearing lower temps, hopefully.

  19. Hi human, Dixie,

    Of course, my human knows how much you have struggled with your ailments. He has continued to stay in the background and we both cheer you on for better times ahead.

    Don't worry about commenting on my site, yes, my site. I took over because Gary is also very poorly.

    Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses,

    Penny xx
