I thought that I would give a little update here since I’ve had quite a few notes here and there from everyone (which I really do appreciate!!! Thank you.).
First though – I wanted to tell you that even though I am unable to do the Birthday Book this year, it’s still happening, and you can still be a part of it. I’ll definitely post a link to it on Dave’s Birthday, Jan. 14. Foo Fighters Italian Fan Club has all the details as they are in charge this year. I promise, PROMISE that I will be back next year. Promise. So here’s the link to submit your birthday book contributions to Dave. His birthday is this coming Monday so get busy!
So I know that many of you probably have no idea what happened. You can read about my fun-time aka “shitty” health problems HERE.
Here’s a bit of an update. Basically, I’m..better…? I suppose. I have a lot of nerve damage in my top left leg due to shingles. I’m still just trying to figure the whole stupid thing out. So I have good days and I have bad days. It just depends on how my leg wants to act each day. I got off of the medicine that made me a total zombie and afraid of every single little thing. I moved to another medicine that seems to help some, but honestly it’s not worth the money I’m throwing out there monthly. I’ve been referred to a neurologist so that we can find out just how extensive the damage is – and yes, I’m going to say it – health care in Texas sucks. They pretty much take their sweet-ass time which is quite frustrating. I think I’m maybe a bit spoiled having lived in Boston and having worked for Harvard Medical. I’m still on pain killers, but yes, it would be nice to just not have to deal with any of that either. Long story short, I’m managing. I’m a tough old broad and I’ll somehow make it through, but I have my moments where it’s all too much and I might have to cry here or there and then listen to some good music and get over it. I guess in life you just have to figure out a way to deal with what gets thrown at you – good or bad. The other thing is that my doctor basically told me to rest, rest, rest as I’ve basically just been suffering somewhat from exhaustion. My mom recently said to me, “When you were a baby, you never slept. When you were a kid, you never napped. You weren’t out of control or anything. You were happy or just quiet, but napping is not in your DNA. It’s almost as if you were scared to death to sleep because you might miss something. You’re 42 now and at some point, you’re going to need to take a nap or sleep.” It’s true. Before this whole thing happened, I had taken exactly 2 naps in my life. She also added that she witnessed me standing in the middle of Times Square once commenting about ‘I wonder if I’m missing xxxxx…’ The middle of the universe and I’m sure I’m missing something somewhere. Who has time to sleep? Anyway… I have been forced to just let everything go and take a nap here or there. I’ll just say that it’s a damn good thing Foo Fighters weren’t on tour during this time. 🙂 So just know that I really do appreciate all of your e mails or your nice messages to me on Facebook or Twitter or however you have checked up on me. It means a lot.
See you soon…much love,
PS, OMG Sound City. So exciting.
