Day 341: 5th December 2022 | Part 2 | Was wondering when I’d make my first video on the toilet ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Had a revaluation and needed to share it ๐Ÿ˜…

I spend so much time waiting for my bladder to feel ok so that I know it’s safe to get up. Believe me, I have been living with bladder problems my entire adult life, probably even longer, so I have accidentally peed on myself enough times to just wait until I feel like I can get up ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Sometimes I have really great days where I almost forget that I have it. I love those days. But the past couple of days haven’t been so good and today is even worse. I genuinely just don’t feel well all round so really need to try and focus on getting through these notes I’m reading to keep the mean voice in my head to back off and stay silent ๐Ÿ˜…

I was originally diagnosed with having interstitial cystitis, approximately 12-15 years ago. I did physical therapy, and urine journaling where I had to measure everything I drunk as well as how much came out when I peed. After that I had to learn pelvic floor exercises and a bunch of new things.

My new and current specialist believes it is actually overactive-bladder and after doing some tests has been able to help me in a way I still don’t understand wasn’t told all those years ago, but there is medication specifically for this condition.

Sometimes the meds help, and the new one I’m taking are definitely making a difference but flare up days like today are bad and on top of that I basically feel like anything and everything that my health conditions can do to me is happening and I just want to go back to bed ๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜ซ

Oh, and one last thing I have also just realised, writing these descriptions especially long ones like this or write blogs on my website, this all takes time and due to dealing with everything that I do, it takes me a lot longer than it should or I’d like ๐Ÿ™„

I better get back to it ๐Ÿค“
