bitch moan whine : FSGS Sucks

Well, the ankle bones were short lived. I mean, I'm SURE they're in there somewhere, but you'd have a hard time telling by my current state.

Gravity is my best friend, but also my worst enemy. Apparently, the only way to keep the swelling down is to keep them elevated. Imagine the convenience of having a life where one could do this all of the time. Unfortunately, I am not that one. My feet, once again, look like they'd be better suited for the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man in Ghostbusters.  Ahh...yes, I see the resemblance.

After a cursory review of my other blog, I realize that I've been dealing with this swelling since the middle of December.  Dayum.  I thought it had been 3 or 4 months at the most, but THIS freaks me out.  Maybe that means it's never going away.  Maybe that means you'll all have to hear me bitch about this.  Que horrible!!!

And yes, I do have another blog.  If anyone wants to hear about happier things in my life, including my beautiful little girl, handsome husband, rambunctious hounds and a psycho kitty, head on over to my personal blog.  I tend to put on the bitchy things about my disease here, because, well...that's what I started this damn thing for.

Today, I probably pushed it a bit too hard.  I worked from home on Thursday, and ended up staying home again on Friday because my little girl was sick.  Unfortunately, that didn't allow me a lot of lounging time, as indicated by my slightly swollen tootsies last night.  Today, we headed out for an event downtown, and when that got too annoying we headed to the zoo.  Lemme say that maybe it was just me, but EVERYTHING was annoying today.  After about only 10 minutes at the zoo, we bailed and headed home.  I was just redneck/hilljack/hillbillied out.  And I knew that there was no way my feet were going to make it the whole zoo trip, so we came home and I put my feet up.

I've been working in my office the last couple of hours, trying to create some semblance of order, but the funny thing is that this requires me to sit in a chair with my feet dangling...and I'm sure you can imagine what my feet look like at this point.  Yes, puffy puffy puffy.

Since I can no longer feel my toes, I figure I might as well try to finish up in here.  Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

  2. Oy - not pleasant at all. I know the everything-is-annoying feeling, which makes everything else bad as well. Hope you get to put those feet up again today!

Woohoo - no more pneumonia (well almost....) but other terrible things, like a car accident...

Hello all!  I felt like it's been forever since I last posted, but it wasn't as bad as I thought once I checked.  I'm writing th...
