Sarah Ann Parr, 44, wife and mum of two felt faint and dizzy after a family walk. She had taken antibiotics for a urinary tract infection (UTI), yet the medication failed to treat the infection.
For all you BLAers and post op Cushies, WATCH OUT for any infection that can whittle down the cortisol you take daily. The body uses cortisol to fight infections, so it will use up the medication you take orally, leaving you without enough to sustain vital bodily functions like maintaining blood pressure and metabolism.
Rest In Peace, Sarah.
You are gone but will not be forgotten. ❤️
Sarah and her family also went on a walk up Moel Famau in Wales, United Kingdom.
Like many Cushies and folks who struggle with chronic disease daily, I've heard of the spoon theory. Some people love it and go ga ga for it.
Me: Meh. 🤷🏽♀️
I mean I get it.
I agree with it.
It just doesn't describe how my days usually go and the multitude of nuanced choices I must make each day.
Tonight, I found my new substitute spoon theory! I proudly bring you the Matchstick Theory.
