The long road ahead!
The conditions that I am battling daily and a few short terms are, Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) (an illness in which the pumping action of the heart becomes less and less powerful. When this happens, blood does not move efficiently through the circulatory system and starts to back up, increasing the pressure in the blood vessels and forcing fluid from the blood vessels into body tissues.)
Neurocardiogenic syncope (NCS) (blood circulation to the brain is reduced, resulting in temporary loss of consciousness.) Then there is the Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) ( a disorder that affects the muscles and soft tissues of the body. It is believed that fibromyalgia intensifies painful sensations by affecting the way that the brain processes pain signals.)
The above conditions are somewhat manageable with proper medications.
I also have Meniere's disease, it is considered a chronic condition. It is a disorder of the inner ear that causes spontaneous episodes of vertigo — a sensation of a spinning motion — along with fluctuating hearing loss, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), and sometimes a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ear. I have permanent hearing loss in both ears. Meniere’s Disease (MD) normally only affects one ear but in my case, which is rare; I have MD in the left ear with hearing loss of 86% and in the right ear with hearing loss of 67%. My hearing will continue to disappear. A typical episode might start with a feeling of fullness in the ear, increasing tinnitus and decreasing hearing followed by severe vertigo, often accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Such an episode might last 20 minutes to four hours or more. Episodes often occur in clusters, which prevents me from further working.
I was recently diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis (MS), it is a disease in which your immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers your nerves. Myelin damage disrupts communication between your brain and the rest of your body. Ultimately, the nerves themselves may deteriorate, a process that's currently irreversible. There's no cure for multiple sclerosis. The MD and MS along with all the other disorders has caused severe depression. My doctor requested me get a service dog to help with mobility issues, medical alerting when I may have an attack and the depression. After surviving breast and uterine cancer, I am determined. I am a fighter. A walk in shower would be so helpful with my conditions. :) Thank you all for the support. I have a long road ahead of me but I am a fighter. I have gotten my power scooter and I have my rollatior walker. Now I am working on getting a van that has handicap accessibility. I am also working on having a walk in shower installed to help make life a little easier. Thank you again for any support that you can give. Love, Light and blessings to you all.
