Last Quarter of 2021

Last Quarter in 2021

I thought 2020 was rough, but 2021 challenged me even more as within the final quarter, I found myself in the hospital not one or two times; but three times! I have not been to the hospital so frequently since I was born. I never, till now can say that I spent a few nights at each hospital.

My first trip was due to some major abdominal pain. Thankfully, pain is not a regular part of my life. That unforgettable night, I understood why numbing drugs exist. This hospital did an MRI and concluded that I had a stroke along with a UTI.

The second hospital I went to ran an EKG and found that I had a red flag. This hospital was a trip as I was not given a room until later that night, even though I was transmitted by an ambulance earlier that day.

When I asked why they were keeping me in the hallway and not putting me in a room, I was advised rooms were for people who had serious heart issues. Talk about treating someone like a second class citizen… What ever happened to humanity? Drawing my own conclusion, rooms were for vaccinated people.

The third and hopefully last, I fainted on Thanksgiving Day. The hospital ran an EEG (electroencephalogram), MRI, and ultrasound of my heart to conclude that I didn’t show any signs of a stroke or seizure, no new or active lesions from Multiple Sclerosis. Frustrated that I was advised that I had a stroke even though they ran the same test, MRI. Is this Medical Misdiagnosis?

During each of my hospital stays, I met some interesting people. I encountered a few people who truly wanted to help me and took care of me as though I was family.

2022, can I get a break? For some odd reason, you think that I can catch all your curveballs. Once I hop back up, look out! On second thought, we can make a great team and be a force unknown and unseen to mankind. If interested, I have a sneaky suspicion that you know just where and how to find me; whether you are invited or not.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

I've created the blog to inspire and educate others on my journey living with multiple sclerosis and avenues taken in search of improving my quality of life. Every now and then other subjects are included such as education, finance, economics, and current events. Laughing and dancing fuels me while music and prayers drive me!
