It’s been a while. And it’s not so much that I’ve been slacking off, it’s more a case of being sick.
The past few months have been interesting and while finding out I was diabetic a couple of months ago was a bit on the crappy side, the latest diagnosis is certainly more craptastic than the first: heart failure caused by dilated cardiomyopathy, along with a spot of mitral valve regurgitation for good measure isn’t really something you want to hear.
Guess that explains why I’ve been feeling so knackered.
The new drugs are, um, well, equally crappy (lots of side effects that go ever so nicely with the side effects from the medication I was already on).
Anyway, I’m off to see the cardiologist in Dunedin again this week and for some more tests. At least I can now categorically state that I’m not a heartless bitch … I do have one, even if it doesn’t work properly!
