Anyone been given #Fluoxetine #Prozac for probable #PMDD ? I haven't reacted well to any #Antidepressants as they've all made me suicidal when I have taken others in the past so apprehensive to start these but I don't know what else to try. I have an appointment with a #Gynaecologist on 09 May as I had a #PartialHysterectomy 10 years ago for different reasons and my #Hormones are normal so it's not premature menopause.

By this scale I'm somewhere between #Moderately and #Severely affected as I can function minimally and get out very occasionally but in order to be able to function minimally and get out very occasionally I have to spend 95% of my time in bed with the only time I get out of my bed is to go to the bathroom using my electric wheelchair which isn't very often unless my IBS is playing up or I'm "normal person ill"

MOST RECENT

I had my trial #LidocaineInfusion at my local hospital on Thursday 11 August 2016. I didn't know what to expect at the time as there was very little information online about people who had had one and the information that was there were of people who had had negative experiences. About 3 weeks after I had the infusion the nurse called to check how things were going. I explained that my base pain level had halved from 8/10 to 4/10 and as a bonus I no longer had tachycardia while I was lying down. She and I were both more than pleased with the results. She then told me to wait until my pain levels were back to my pre-infusion levels then call them back again. I decided not to wait too long as I didn't know how long it would take to go from phoning up to knowing whether I'd be allowed another one and then actually getting the infusion and didn't want to suffer any longer than I had to. So I decided to call once I noticed a combination of an increase in my pain levels and an increase in my heart rate. Fast forward 11 months from my infusion date. I called the pain team again on Monday 10 July and the person who I spoke to told me they'd let them know that I'd called at the team meeting on Wednesday. I also mentioned my concerns about being asked by neurology to stop my Tramadol to see if it's the cause of my more severe headaches as I'd experienced Akathisia when I've attempted to reduce the Tramadol in the past while I was on the phone and they said that they'd mention that too. On Wednesday I got a call from the nurse who gave me the infusion back in August saying that I was indeed allowed another infusion as I'd lasted about a year and that I may be able to go in for it as early as next Thursday (20 July) but the doctor in charge is off work until Monday 17 July so wouldn't be able to confirm it or organise another date for my infusion until then. Yesterday was Monday 17 July & the nurse from the pain team called me back and confirmed that it had indeed been organised for me to go in for another Lidocaine Infusion on Thursday 20 July @ 9:30am. I'm more hopeful going into it for a second time knowing that it does help just hope it works as well this time around.

It's that time of year again. After 3 minutes trying to get into the telephone queue, 44 minutes in said queue and 3 minutes speaking to someone to book tickets I now have tickets to see #DarrenShan and #DebiGliori at the #EdinburghInternationalBookFestival this year. The 2 events are on 3 consecutive days from 25-27 August. One of the events has 2 authors so I'll also be seeing #PamSmy as well.

I was told to allow for extra time this year due to the addition of bag searches.

PS. Notice the 3/44/3 palindrome for the phone times πŸ˜‰

Now all I need to do is wait for my tickets to arrive, hope I don't get the tickets muddled up (the first time I've went to more than one event at a time at the book festival & I've went every year since 2006) & enjoy myself ☺

Spurred on after reading @chickandthedead 's book #PastMortems last month I pestered my fiancΓ© @johnscott999 to go with me to Surgeons' Hall Museums in Edinburgh (the nearest place to us & thus next best place to St Bart's where Carla works). πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
Yesterday we went & I decided to go wearing my @thegooddeath #FutureCorpse t-shirt.

There's not many pictures due to no photos being allowed inside in accordance with the Human Tissue Act (Scotland) 2006. These pictures were taken outside before we went in (& of the souvenir guide once back home).

I'm not sure how to describe the experience we had there as great or amazing don't quite feel the right words to use to describe such a place. It's like no place we've ever been before both fascinating & humbling. It gives u a sense of relief to have not been alive in the 1700's as some of the medical equipment/treatment available looked worse than some of the illnesses that they were supposed to treat, (for me personally) that my Scoliosis is not as bad as it could be & gives u an insight into the workings of the human body that helps u figure out what's going on inside us all in a way that I have never experienced before.
πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
It's certainly not for everyone as it involves human remains (including those of foetuses & new born babies) but if u have a fascination with the human body/history of the medical world it's more than worth a visit. We were in there for about 2hrs & that was without going to the museum of dentistry so if u do go make sure u have plenty of time ☺
πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
For any w/chair users wishing to go there's a limit of 66cm (measured mine at 57cm wide) to the width of w/chairs for access to the upper level of the #PathologyMuseum due to narrow corridors but I noticed a couple of w/chairs if ur w/chair is not narrow enough & u are able to transfer and if not there are interactive screens available for u to view the items stored on that floor. There's lift access to all floors & an accessible loo available in the basement (altho the door's heavy). I was able to access the upper floor but had to make sure that I lined up ok to get thru parts.
