Eye Exam Follow-up

Big Medical Words / Uncategorized

After my first eye exam (you can read about it here if you didn’t  read about it) and my baby ‘jumping to conclusions’ that i was going blind moment, I was a bit worried.  I was relieved to hear that the eye doctor could see me on Monday afternoon.

After doing all of the paperwork I got taken back for the preliminary eye test.  I assume this is similar to the nurse in the doctor’s office asking ‘why are you here’ before the doctor comes in to ask ‘why are you here’.  My favorite part during this segment was when she asked me, while writing in my chart, “Have you EVER had 20/20 vision?”

After I failed that exam I got moved back to the waiting room before being called back to the next exam room.  In came the doctor.  He was able to tell pretty quickly that what I have is autoimmune keratitis.  He said it is fairly common to develop it a few months after having pink eye.  It can be treated with steroid drops on a tapering dose (you know, prednisone style).

I asked if there were any serious side effects I needed to know about.  He said nothing too dangerous, but there is a chance that it can change the pressure in the eye so it was important to check the pressure to get a baseline so we can check again in a month.  In order to check the pressure of my eyes he had to put yellow numbing drops in my eyes.  Hero and I had matching yellow eyes so we had to take a selfie.

He mentioned the other little thing was that sometimes people mention a bad taste in their mouth.  I asked why.  Apparently tear ducts connect down to sinuses and can drain into the back of your throat.

How stinkin’ gross is it that I can taste something I put in my eyes? GROSS, but it also means my vision is hopefully going to clear up soon so it’s definitely worth it.  If you ever need to take these drops, put a cough drop or gum in your mouth before you put the drops in.  You’re welcome.

The name of the drops makes me giggle a little bit.

Sorry it took so long to give you this great news update.  I was busy resting and didn’t have the most amazing days health-wise, but great news, I’m not going blind!

My New Mobility Device; To Be MOBILE in the SNOW

Funny Farm Stuff / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

If you didn’t put that cryptic title together, I’ll help you.  We got a snowmobile.  Nothing fancy, just an old machine that works enough to haul us around.

snowmobile

That husband of mine is always looking out for me.  Yes some could see this recent purchase as a toy for him, but honestly he did get this for me to be able to get around a bit on our property in the snow.

snowmobile-2

With our newest purchase I can now go get the mail in the winter.  I can also make it up to the shop now too.  Another exciting part is that when the road to our house is completely iced over and can’t be driven on (like today for example), I can now take the snowmobile down to the other road to meet someone or take a vehicle we have previously parked down there.

snowmobile-3

This summer a golf cart is on our wish list so that I can get up to the garden, but that obviously won’t work in the snow so this was our winter solution.  I’m still working on the upper body strength to be able to start it myself.  Baby steps.

snowmobile-4

Yesterday we took a little ride up our road together.  We might have kind of rolled it… at about zero miles per hour.  It very much reminded me of the way Kevin James describes his jet skiing adventure.

We definitely did the whole ‘wipe out going zero’ thing.

Just wanted to keep you updated on our newest adventures!

My First Eye Exam Post POTS Diagnosis

Big Medical Words / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

In December I had pink eye, which was really annoying.  It took forever to go away, which was really annoying.  Then my vision remained blurry forever more, which was really annoying.

I called a couple weeks ago and made an appointment.  Today was appointment day.

Personal Victory: For the first time in my life I was brave enough to do the air puff in the eye test.

chandler-mini-wave

I finished the rest of the pre-testing then went in to see the doctor.  She made me try reading lines of letters one eye at a time.  The right eye was maybe slightly worse than two years ago.  The left eye was another story.  I couldn’t see any of the letters.  In fact no amount of correction she applied made any of the letters visible.

She came over to do the bright light look at my eye thing.  Then she did the blue light look at my eye.  Then she said “Your cornea is a complete mess.”  I know I never was the best housekeeper and I need help now, but I like to think I at least keep my corneas tidy.  Apparently not my left one.

Image result for eye exam meme funny

Next she put dye in my eye and looked again.  She couldn’t see any white blood cells that would mean leftover infection.  She couldn’t see any injuries.  She went ahead and wrote a prescription for me to see a different doctor who has the capability to do more testing to help get answers.  My favorite part was when she said, “I wouldn’t say it’s exactly an emergency, but I would say to get in as soon as possible.”  Sidenote** in that moment all I heard was “you’re losing your vision any day now.  Say goodbye to seeing things.”

She was familiar with POTS and the nervous system.  She said the optical nerves appeared to be in good condition as far as she could see, though she said she didn’t have the capability to see the entire nerve.

Since the eyes are a part of the nervous system of course they can be affected by POTS.  I was well aware of this, although I’ll admit it was a bit of a fear of mine.  Eye things freak me out.

In short, the appointment was a bit of a bummer.  I thought I’d be picking out new cute glasses, but instead I’m waiting to see another doctor for more testing.  I’m not 100% sure that I can blame POTS for this, but basically in my life everything is POTS until proven otherwise.

I had a mini freak out and bought myself some treats at Costco to cheer me up.  A new soft blanket can fix a lot of emotions.  I’ve known this since my friend brought me an amazing blanket while I was in the hospital.

I will update more about results after I see the next doctor.  I’m not positive, but I feel like there used to be a time when I could go to a doctor without leaving with a prescription to a different doctor.

This is one of those moments where my initial reaction is to freak out and worry about a lot of things that could be.  This is a bad place to go and I know this.  So, my reminder for myself right now is that I don’t need to worry about what could be.  I need to focus and put one foot in front of the other until I know more.  When I used to go running with Tom he would tell me that even when you don’t want to you just ‘put one foot in front of the other until it’s over.’

I am just going to keep doing my life and avoid sitting on the cactus.

Have a happy weekend friends and don’t sit on the cactus.

 

Black Bean Patties; Step-by-Step

Leave a comment
Cooking with POTS & Pans / Uncategorized

This recipe is based off of the Pioneer Woman’s Black Bean Burger recipe, but I have modified it a bit.  In this house, Tom doesn’t prefer when I call something by a name that it isn’t and I don’t blame him.  I can’t stand when someone says pizza, and then in small print they mention that it’s a cauliflower crust or some other nonsense.

For instance, there is no such thing as ‘veggie lasagna’.  He doesn’t prefer the word lasagna be used when meat is not involved.  For this same reason I sometimes make Sloppy Janes, instead of Sloppy Joes.  Sloppy Janes are made with ground turkey instead of ground beef.

I do not call these black bean burgers because they in fact have no hamburger in them, but they really are delicious in their own way.  Just trust me.  Give them a fair try.

Step-by-Step

1. Open your can of black beans and drain them, but do not rinse.  Don’t be too lazy to get out the colander like I was.

  • black-bean-1

2. Use a fork to mash up the beans.  It’s ok to leave a few  bigger and whole pieces though.

  • black-bean-2

3. Throw in the bread crumbs & mix it up.

  • black-bean-3

4. Peel an onion and grate some of it up, then throw it in.

  • black-bean-6

5. Add in an egg, chili powder, and salt and pepper.

  • black-bean-4

6. Don’t forget the hot sauce! I used sriracha.  Now mix it all up and let it sit for 5 minutes.

  • black-bean-5

7.  Form the mixture into three thick patties.  These do not shrink in size while cooking so keep that in mind.

8.  Heat up some olive oil over medium heat in the pan.  Then throw in your patties.  Cook for 5 minutes, then flip.

  • black-bean-7

9. Cook for another 3 or 4 minutes, then throw on a slice of cheese.  You can put a lid on the pan to help it melt faster.

  • black-bean-8

10. Plate it up!  This is where it gets delicious.  When I’m cutting back on calories I put it on a bed of lettuce and top it with tomato, pickle, mustard, and a little sriracha ketchup, but it’s also delicious on a toasted bun!  Serve it with a cucumber, tomato, avocado, and olive salad with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

It’s not beef, but it is delicious!

black-bean-9

Tuesday Things: The Twenty-First

Tuesday Things

Oh hi friends; it’s Tuesday.  Here’s the weekly roundup of things.

Flamingo Lies; Damn Lies

I have recently seen this little picture floating around on the internet.  While I think it’s beautiful and magical, I thought I better fact check before I posted it up here on the blog.

flamingo-eggs

Apparently it’s been confirmed to be FALSE.  Flamingo egg yolks are very similar to chicken yolks.  Also, young flamingos are not born pink in color because that coloring is obtained through diet.

Why someone made up this ‘fact’ I’ll never know.  Perhaps it’s an alternative fact (trademark pending).

The Importance of Understanding How Airbags Work

I may not know a whole lot about how airbags work, but I know that while they save lives, they can also cause injuries from smashing glasses and other items into a person’s face, chest and throat area.  The few pictures I’ve seen from my previous line of work helped to really drive that home.

Evidently, this person likes to live on the edge.

airbag-cacti

Kit Kat Mysteries

I’m always keeping an eye out for interesting facts that y’all need to know.  Do you know what is inside of a Kit Kat?

kit-kat

BBC recently reported that between the layers of wafer are ‘ground up Kit Kat’.  So then, we must ask now how the first Kit Kat was made?  I’ll leave you to ponder.

Which Person are You?

As I was reading local news stories the other day, I saw this headline.  I read through to see that the entire pizza call was a fake and the plan was already in place to steal the vehicle.

auto-theft

This is when people develop feelings and reactions to the story.  Which person are you?  Are you the one who worries about the local vehicle theft?  The person who is relieved that the driver is ok?  Or are you like myself and Justice Ward, only worried about one thing?

auto-theft-2

I wish I could tell you I was a better person, however, there is a woman out there who ordered no pizza and a pizza delivery man showed up with a huge order.  In my mind that is probably how an angel would appear.  Pizza in hand.

Disclaimer: I’m not into committing felonies, but if I’m going to steal a pizza delivery car, I’m going to do it while the pizza is IN the car.

 

Ok friends, that’s all I’ve got for you for today’s edition of Tuesday Things.  Go find something fun to smile about.

Stay Strong!

 

 

Gadget Roundup- Christmas Cash Burning a Hole in Your Pocket?

Leave a comment
Smile Makers / Uncategorized

I usually receive a bit of Christmas cash and I’m pretty careful about what I want to spend it on.  It’s a big deal because it’s free money and I don’t wanna spend it on something stupid.

Last night I was laying in bed and looking on the internet.  By the way, when I say last night it could have been 3 AM, 730 AM, 4 PM yesterday… I never really know for sure. Anyways, prior to writing this post I found some fun and different stuff and I decided to share some of my favorites with y’all.

This first one might actually be super useful to my POTSIE and sicko friends that follow along.  (I mean sicko in the nicest way.)

Air Con Bed Fan

Check this out.  If you like sleeping under covers, but also don’t like being a thousand degrees, this is for you.  I’ll definitely be considering it come Summer.  It goes for around $99.99 and can be found at Brookstone, as well as a few on Ebay.

Bed Fan with Wireless Remote

We Want Tiny Cell Phones with Big Keyboards

I think my brother could be a stand up comedian based off of his spiel about how we started with a GIANT computer, but finally got them tiny so we could have tiny laptops.  Then we wanted the screens bigger so we got bigger laptops.  Phones started the same way, first the cell phone in the bag, then the Zach Morris huge cellphone.  We continued making the phones as tiny as possible, but of course we wanted bigger screens so they continue to move back up.  Then there was the wireless keyboard you could carry with you to type on a keyboard like normal, but not have to carry a huge laptop.

This, actually seems like a pretty cool idea, if in fact it actually works.  Meet the laser projected keyboard, which sells for around $30 on Amazon.

Stress?  Combine Guns and Wine

This is the one time I wish I was a wine drinker.  Pull the trigger to remove the cork.  $40 on Amazon.

WineOvation

If You Don’t Prefer Guns, You Must Prefer Pirates

If the wine gun doesn’t suit your fancy, you’ve got to appreciate this guy.  He’s adorable.

This Legless Corkscrew is $28.99 at Animicausa.com

Legless Corkscrew

We All Wish We Had this Yellow Submarine

I’m not a tea drinker, well unless it’s from Long Island and Iced.  But if I was, this would totally live in my house.  On sale now for $13.99 at Animicausa.com

Tea Sub Unique Gifts

Trivet or Crime Scene on the Table?

Maybe it’s just the law enforcement in me, but I just find this little trivet to be adorable.  $19.99 at Animicausa.com

Crime Scene Pot Trivet

Mr. Sponge

He’s handsome. He’s fancy.  He sits in your sink and holds your sponge.  I’m not even the least bit ashamed to admit that I ordered this guy and he’s waiting in my mailbox right now.  $12.99 on animicausa.com  Also available on Amazon if you are a primer and want free shipping.

Mr. Sponge - Sponge Holder

Perfect for Potsies

Salt is key to our health.  Lots of water and lots of salt is the recipe to reduce passing out.  How cute is this?  $18.99 at Animicausa.com.  It is currently backordered until February, but if you’ve waited this long for a Spicebarrow, you can wait a few more weeks.  Sadly, it doesn’t come with a tiny shovel.

Genetics & Nutraceuticals Specialist Visit

Big Medical Words / Uncategorized

*I know this is long and super ‘big medical words’-y, but don’t worry I hid some jokes in here so it’s not completely boring.*

First off, I’m not a hippy.  Ten times out of ten I am more likely to reach for the Dayquil than the Echinacea.  In fact, my childhood best friend used to tell her mom that she believed Echinacea made her sick because as symptoms started arriving her mom always made her take Echinacea.  She proclaimed that since she always got a full-blown cold after taking it, that it caused her sickness.

Do I believe that specific vitamins and herbs can play a role in different conditions? Yes.  Do I know a lot about this? No.  Do I know a little about this? No.

I’m that person that would rather go to the pharmacy than the health supplement store.  I know that probably makes some of you cringe.  It’s just the way my mind works and the way I’ve seen the most improvement in the past.

I’m skeptical of magic herbs from far away places.

Do I think the pharmaceutical industry is evil, overpriced and teaming up with insurance companies to make crazy money off of all of us? Yes, but I’ve done six days without my medication and that was a very BAD six days.

Now that all of my core beliefs are out there in the open… today I saw a specialist in genetics and nutraceuticals.  That means he can name lots and lots of herbs off the top of his head and supposed benefits and side effects of each.  He also knows far more about the way studying genes can show how the body processes different medications and breaks down dopamine.  I think that might be a higher level chemistry and I want to take a higher level chemistry never.  So, therefore, I’m going to give him a chance.  Unfortunately, he has also never heard of POTS.

I always feel bad for new doctors when they get me:

new-doctor

I’ve said and heard the word ‘herbs’ enough today to warrant showing this clip.

At today’s visit we did the following:

  • Took a saliva swab for genetic testing.  Actually, he left the room to get the kit and came back with the great news that the lab in their office was actually changing providers for genetic testing so the representative was there right now in a meeting.  He came up and brought some nurses to watch a demonstration using me and my  beautiful cheek cells.  This testing will be able to show how fast I break down Dopamine, B9 and the way my liver metabolizes all of the different types of psychological drugs, which should show the best options for my body.  The test will also show how my serotonin transporter gene works.  The lab takes 5 days to get results.  I’ll go back in a week to meet with the specialist again and find out more words I don’t know probably.
    • Now it’s a party. P.S. See that paper there? Football plays for the Superbowl for sure.  Or genetic stuff.
    • genetics-party
  • Ordered a 24 hour urine test from a lab in Virginia to check for heavy metal toxins in the body.  Do I think I could have heavy metal poisoning? No, but in the game of POTS if you can find and treat whatever started the POTS, in most cases the POTS disappears.  So I’m willing to spend the 80 bucks and collect my urine.  Plus, it’s another thing I can hopefully rule out confidently.

 

  • Began the treatment process with Ashwagandha Root.  There are two types of herbs apparently.  Adaptive and Stimulant.  Adaptive will work better for me because apparently, over the period of months, it will slowly learn my immune and nervous system and start to increase my energy levels and reduce my fatigue.  It should help to stabilize and reduce my drops in energy.  Do I believe that a root from India can do this? No, of course not.  But of 2184 people in a test who reported side effects, none of them reported tachycardia (which is something I must avoid since I already have it).  Do I kinda wanna be the one in 2185 who gets tachycardia? Sure.  Just reminds me how very special my body is.  In all honesty, of all the herbs that have shown fatigue to be reduced, this is the only one that doesn’t have warnings about tachycardia.  Am I willing to pay the $19.99 to try it out? sure.  If my energy level goes up at all without any other horrific side effect, it’s a win in my book.  Plus, I just found an article that shows 7 amazing benefits of Ashwagandha:
    • Promotes graceful aging- thank goodness.  Obviously Jennifer Aniston and John Stamos use this.
    • Menopausal support- doesn’t really do much for me now.
    • Sexual potency- look out babe, I’m gonna be potent.  Start stretching now.
    • Memory support- helps me win Jeopardy more, check.
    • Revitalization- supposedly it is supported by scientific investigation. Hmmm
    • Mood booster- always a plus.
    • Fertility- whoa. ok, really it just says it will decrease stress and people who are stressed don’t get pregnant as easily.
  • Plus, if you look at it, it kinda looks like capsules filled with gold flakes.  Which, if that’s the case can’t I just drink Goldschlager? Or dirt. It looks like a capsule of dirtashwagandha-root-capsule

So, that’s how my morning went today.  Oh, and did I mention he has a therapy Falcon?  He does, Mr. Fritz.  Mr. Fritz had a dead mouse for lunch while I was there.  Well, he was given the mouse but then he couldn’t eat it in peace because he was paranoid that I would take it from him.  So he had to throw his wings out and turn around and glare at me multiple times to make sure I wouldn’t come steal his mouse.

Gross. Hope you’re all having a happy and healthy day!

American Housewife Wisdom & a Mini-Coma

Leave a comment
Big Medical Words / Deep Thoughts About POTS / Smile Makers

I’ve been quiet again.  I know.  Life has been feeling crazy.  I’ll try to catch you all up in this here handy dandy little blog post.  It might not even be little.  I won’t make any promises.

I was relaxing this week and watching American Housewife.  It’s a newer show with Katy Mixon; you might remember her as the sister from Mike & Molly.  She’s hilarious.  In this show she frequently ‘talks in her head’ while responding out loud with the appropriate response.  I very much usually agree with what’s in her head.

Anyways, I was watching this week’s episode about a snowstorm (which I can definitely relate to) and one particular part of it really struck me as noteworthy.

Watch, then I’ll tell you my thoughts.

So often people (myself included) get lost in this cycle and trap of ‘if only I was in perfect shape’ and ‘if only we had more money’ then everything would be perfect.  While the more we focus on those things, we’re missing the perfectness all around of us.

No, my husband isn’t into model trains and actually I like most of his interests, but the whole concept really just was a good reminder to stop and love the perfect all around.

Newest Health News

Next, I’ve joined a health and fitness challenge.  Due to POTS, I never really thought I could do something like this, but I’ve realized (all because of my husband constantly showing me and reminding me that anything can be adapted and modified to include me) that I can change this up enough that I can play along as well.  Look, I’m happy to be motivated enough to avoid extra fats, sugary desserts, and fast food.  Even that for six weeks would be an improvement.  Of course I realize that I won’t win this challenge, but it’s free to participate and really any progress will be exciting.

Here are my goals for this six week challenge.  I would like to log my food everyday.  I will drink coconut milk in my coffee instead of creamer (coconut milk is 20 calories for 1/4 cup, while the creamer I like is 35 calories for 1 tablespoon).  I will try to eat a good mixture of whole grains, fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and healthy calcium-filled dairy.  I will try to avoid desserts and unnecessary trans fats.  I will try to increase my working out and keep track of it.

Those are my goals.  As I’m writing this, it’s currently day four at 10:19 pm or 2219 to my L.E. friends.

Days one through three each included exercise and good food choices.  I was doing great.  I want to point out that I wasn’t trying to do any crazy workouts, just some of my physical therapy exercises each day.

Today my body made it clear that I tried too much too fast.

rachel-and-jill

I took a shower last night (which was a victory) and then went to bed.  I tossed and turned and had a bit of pain (not workout pain- although I anticipate that is coming, POTS pain).  I got up around 2330 or 11:30 pm for my non L.E. friends, and took 1 sleeping pill.  Nothing crazy strength, just the over the counter Costco Sleep Aid.  I took 1.

I woke up today at 4:45 PM!!!!  That’s over 17 hours STRAIGHT I slept.  So, my body was apparently so completely overworked that it put me into a mini-coma.  Point taken.  I may have started out with a bit too much gusto.  Not to mention, the 17 hours were straight nightmares of running and screaming and passing out, etc.  At one point, while Tom was home from work and sleeping too I woke him up by screaming “SUBSTATION THREE!!!”

Sleeping for that long immediately reminds me of a Dane Cook comedy sketch, I’ve included it here for you to enjoy, but be advised there is ‘adult language’.

Sleeping 17 hours probably sounds like a dream to most of you and I agree, but in this life it’s a small problem for this body.  If one of you could swing by and throw an IV in so I don’t wake completely dehydrated, well that would be great.

So, I’ll be toning down my exercises, the three to four I do each day, and making sure I do consume enough calories each day too.  Tom reminded me while I was on my recumbent bike one day that the POTS guru doctor I saw at the University of Washington made it clear that I should work up to more exercise time slowly OVER YEARS.  That’s right.  I remember now.  This is a slowwwww process.

Sometimes life seems slow and sometimes life seems fast.  Ferris Bueller says it best though.

Take a minute and look around.

Hope you are all finding smiles out there!

 

 

 

 

Amy Builds a Fire; Narrated by Snapchat

Funny Farm Stuff / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This

Hi friends.  Today I built a fire and narrated it with my Snapchat account.  Those who received it, seemed to enjoy it so I thought I should share with y’all.  I don’t know if this technically falls in my category funny farm stuff or hold my Gatorade and watch this.  A little of both I guess.

One of my co-workers and fellow trainers always used to say the phase of training when you add 911, admin lines, AND radio is usually ‘when the wheels fall off’.  For me in the fire building game, this is usually when the wheels fall off.

So there you have it.  I can in fact successfully build a fire, but it is a process.  Tom taught me how, yet when he goes downstairs to build a fire it never seems like he’s down there near as long as it takes me.

I hope you all had a happy Thursday and are looking forward to Friday.  Bundle up and stay warm!

 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday Things: The Twentieth Edition

Tuesday Things / Uncategorized

Welcome to Tuesday, friends.  What does this day hold for you? I see laundry, wheat bran, and a doctor’s appointment for sure in my day, but who knows what else?  It could be anything! The world is our oyster.

This Will Blow Your Mind

words

Friends & Home Alone Share History

What?  I saw a similar headline while scrolling the other day and couldn’t believe what I was seeing.  If there’s one thing I feel like I know A LOT about, it’s the show FRIENDS.  Home Alone doesn’t fall that far behind.  Prepare to be amazed.

Remember in season 10 when Monica and Chandler buy a house?  Well, based on what we see in the background looking out the front windows, we can assume they somehow moved into the Home Alone house?  Even though they bought a house in New York supposedly and Home Alone was set in Chicago.  TV magic right here, people.

Craigslist Win

You know I love some Craigslist humor.  This one made me laugh out loud the other day while cruising on the internet.

I Feel Left Out

Well, apparently this happened last year?  Nothing like not being able to find googly eyes when you need them, right?

reindeer-boob

P.S. Now I have a photo saved in my blog folder named Reindeer Boob.  It’s a weird world we live in.

Ok, those are my Tuesday Things for your amusement.  I’m off to transfer the laundry and eat my wheat bran.  I’m hoping Mexican food finds it’s way to me somehow today.  🙂  Enjoy your day!
