...of blogging! I've been so busy this past month. It's been crazy, but fun. Sometimes not fun. :-(Let's start from the beginning I suppose. I write as well as I remember.I was feeling very depressed so I requested to go back on Pristiq again. They started me off slow to try and avoid seratonin syndrome. I started at 25mg for a week and then bumped it up to the full 50mg for another week. About 3 days into the 50mg dosage I got seratonin syndrome. It was aweful. I was hot and dizzy and my heart was all thumpy. I went to the ER and they did an EKG, and made me sit for about 2 hours then told me not to take Savella and Pristiq together. Well, duh. So long story short I played phone tag with my doctors for a while and am now no longer taking the Savella. The best part is that I am not afraid to leave the house as much. I even got the mail on my own for the first time in months. The worst part is that I am having more pain.
About a week after I came off my Savella was my very first fashion show. Well, ok I've been in shows before, but as a model. This was my first show as a designer. We left Saint Cloud on Thursday and checked into a hotel since I had to be there at 12 on Friday. We thought the hotel would be a convenience, but in reality it just made things harder I think. I've been doing gluten free for my IBS, and the continental breakfast was anything but. Also, the hotel room was super small and the bed was hard. So I won't be staying there again. In all the show went great. I must have run up and down 2 flights of stairs at least 60 times that day. By the end of everything my legs were shaking from the pain. But the show was awesome.This is a photo of me and my models from the show.
In true Fibrolita fashion I managed to forget my clothes for the show at home. So I am wearing clothing from Scoundrelle's Keep. Photo by Photosynthetic. Check out the shop for my clothing at seraphimfeathers.etsy.com
The next day was the birthday party of my friend, and I drank too much and danced too much. Relaxing on the couch at the club, my back was hurting.

Sharing Lambic with Jon. Turns out it's not gluten free.
A cosmopolitan. It was yummy.
So by Sunday I was in full on flare mode. But I wanted to visit the Mall of America before I had to go back to Saint Cloud. So I got pushed around the mall in a wheelchair for the day.
I am just now beginning to get over the flare, which is nice, but being laid up for a week was not.
Yesterday I went apple picking with my friends too! I will make a different post for that. :-)
