Hello everyone it has been awhile since I last wrote a post. I believe the last time I wrote notes on the forum were related to the ginger juice that I found that helps kill the tummy bacteria when taken daily which truly has helped with symptoms dramatically along with the daily warfarin, healthy clean diet, exercise, quality rest, consistent proper hydration and plaquinil for the joints.
Since I last wrote my husband and I were able to buy a beautiful quiet homestead near the river in Oregon. Excited to move we spent two weeks of preparation in order to move effectively. The daily lifting and work from the move was quite difficult yet I thoroughly enjoyed it knowing that my body needs to move in order to keep going in a healthy manner. All that said, I did not feel stressed simply exhausted physically.
When we pulled up to our new home the hard reality of the previous owner not leaving the property smacked us right in the heart. There we were with all of our belongs in buses at 5:00 pm in without anyway to remove her except by police force or a sheer miracle. The housing market in Oregon is fierce and to see someone take advantage like this has been a slight topic due to the shortage in our area for homes. Our precious home was invaded with a heavy stream of serious stress all at once. Our rental was already rented out therefore we were stumped at our home driveway. I felt a surge of stress and emotions. My body began shaking slightly only to increase severely when the realtors ran to us in the driveway explaining it was a negative situation that they were working to fix.
I normally am quite the peacemaker and have a natural ability to deflate negative situations with my years of owning a non profit that works with at risk youth and people with barriers. I simply had not ability to calm myself or to navigate logically. I started to loose thought, I began stuttering terribly and my body shook and shook. My head was pounding I felt faint and had to be moved to a place to sit quickly. The ER would have been the right call I'm afraid to say I chose not to go. Believing if I left I may not get our home secured.
The person that refused to leave felt so awful that it truly changed her heart and she and I embraced and I spoke kindly to her yet firmly that she had to go. The neighbors and my husband with the realtors of hers and of ours got her out a few minutes before midnight that night. She was held up in the garage so the house itself was clean and available. They set up my bed and laid me down while everyone rushed her while the heart was softened.
All this to say, I'm now headed back to the specialists and going in for a scan. Strong possibility that I had a TIA? Not really sure as I chose to stay there and I worked through it for two straight weeks of slow motion, slow thinking, stuttering, cognitive disruption and a body that would not work properly.
I am feeling better and gaining strength and am taking excellent care of myself but I am not myself. Can't seem to make the memory work like it should and feeling quite off, exhausted and stiff. The way my body shook was nothing I had experienced before. I shook and shook and shook. My nerves were running a marathon.
Any input or shares of others experiencing this would be helpful as I feel a bit alone again. I was doing so tremendously well. Could the nerves react this violently?
Thank you kindly
