New Year, New Hope, Take 2

Well! Another year has come and gone. I haven't updated since my post after the last New Year check-in. That's honestly because 2016 has been horrid and I really didn't want to give it too much-added attention.

Let's hope things change this year!

A brief update from 2016:
  • The Visanne continued to work, for the most part, for several months.
  • The headaches eventually went away,
  • Around March the pain started getting unbearable again.
  • Tax season was very hard on me between my pain levels, trying to work, and dealing with my boss.
  • By the end of May, I couldn't take it any longer.
  • June 1st my boss and I agreed for me to go on sick leave until after surgery and recovery.
  • Original surgery was scheduled for June 21st but was delayed to July 12th due to operating room scheduling issues.
  • July 12th surgery was completed. It was a long surgery, but the Dr. Grace Lui was confident. The uterus was removed to cure adenomyosis and endometriosis was found and excised. The bladder was connected to the uterus and was detached. A great deal of scar tissue and adhesions were found and removed.
  • I took the full 8 weeks to recover. It was a long process, but I didn't want to do anything to risk recovery.
  • Upon attempting to return to work my boss tried to lay me off.
  • After discussions with a lawyer and my boss, I was able to return to work,
  • Due to the instability of my job (that I had worked at for 10 years) I began searching for a new job.
  • On November 15th finally had a new roof put on our house and garage.
  • On November 22nd I accepted a new job that I believe will be much more suitable and satisfying.
  • On November 23rd I gave my boss 1 month's notice.
  • On December 5th my Callistos was diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy. Heartbroken.
  • On December 7th our furnace died.
  • On December 8th we had to have a brand new furnace installed.
  • On December 23rd I worked my last day. We had lunch at the CN tower as part of our Christmas / Farewell lunch.
So yeah! Fun year! /sarcasm

Some goals for 2017:
  • Pour myself into my new job.
  • Refocus on my education now that I have a job where I can actually use it.
  • Refocus on my health and weight now that I don't have this chronic illness wearing me down.
  • Refocus on cleaning and decluttering the home now that my illness is not dictating how to prioritize my life.
  • By less new yarn and use more stash yarn.
  • Complete more WIPs instead of starting new projects.
  • More detailed crafting goals will be on the craft blog.
  • Update the blogs more!
Let's have a great 2017 everyone!

I have suffered from adenomyosis with severe cramps during and after my period. It was very painful and heavy bleeding and severe lower back pain my pain was unbearable to a point of being not able to move and a stabbing like pain on the left of my ovaries. Pain goes away when a clot comes out. But it took a while for the clot to come out. After several meetings with my gynaecologist which she suggested "Hysterectomy" but I refused I know what Hysterectomy is and how heart aching it can be then she stated that Allopathic treatment will help in pain management but it will not cure the disease. I started treatment with a drug named "endoheal 2 mg". This gave me pain relief but reduced my periods almost to no periods with numerous side effects - spotting and fluctuation in my dates. I was not mentally satisfied to bear the side effects so I came across ''Ayurvedic doctor" who started my treatment with herbs. Though I continued above drug 'endoheal 2 mg'" parallel for nine months for easy pain management. From then I continued taking the treatment. It reduced the size of my lesion but did not reduce it further after few months. And there was no relief in pain during menstruation but my Dr. Advised me to continue it during 3 months without any gap. I had noticed a quick ageing of my skin in the last 2 years. I am a smoker but for some reason I feel my quick ageing has to do with something else because I have been smoking for a long time and it's only recently that I noticed a fast decline of my skin elasticity. After then pain radiates very badly in my left leg, lower left back and left side of my vagina. The pain normally start anytime during 3, 5,6 days, but at time I had to take a painkiller for this also as it irritates whole day. Then pain disappears after fews day. My digestion was slow but Dr. Ronnie's supplements has improved it impossible situations is becoming possible miracles gradually.

I was lucky to read in the internet about a lady who was cured from Adenomyosis through Herbal Medication. I contacted Ronnie through an email address I got from a testimony shared on the internet. Without further delay I made an order, I switched over to it. I had great breakthrough, that in the first month, I was already testifying of the effective of the Herbal medication. After 3months course of taken the medicine, all symptoms were gone. It has been 1 year and four months since I became free from adenomyosis. Anyone who is not in my position would not understand what I went through, the heart break, the pain and how frustrated I was for 6 odd years. Believe me, it was hell. I am so happy; I never believed I will be this happy again in life. My story is quite lengthy, it might help you too. You may contact Dr. Ronnie to know more via his email on.
