Hello blogger buddies!! I have been MIA for a LONG time and I'm so sorry!!
Since November 2012, I have been battling blood clots in my left leg and various other places within my body. Yesterday, I FINALLY received an official diagnosis - I have the auto-immune disease Antiphopholipid syndrome. The not so good news is that like most other auto-immune diseases, there is no cure. But, now we know that blood clots will forever be a part of me. The bad news is that I will forevermore have at least 1 blood clot some place in my body. The main goal is to keep life-threatening blood clots away and at this point we have eliminated the DVT and the PE within my lung. The clots I have now are superficial and non-life-threatening.
With most women who are in their 30's there is a monthly beast we have to battle and because the treatment for my disease is a potent blood thinner, this beast is even more of a bother. My medicine and the beast have caused me to become SEVERELY anemic made my job even tougher than normal. Two weeks ago, my blood levels were so low, I was doing good to get a shower and drive to school. Teaching was EXHAUSTING.
Thankfully, with a diagnosis the anemia is under control and I am starting to feel more like myself and am ready to slowly get back into my blogging and creating for my classes and TPT. I have missed following everyone and look forward to being more in touch!
Thanks for reading!!
