Stressful Week – Sick Kitty & CFS Flare Up

Our poor, sick kitty Spyder.

This week has been stressful. First off, I have a sick kitty that has recently cost us over $700 in vet bills (for severe diarrhea) and even after spending all that money and giving him antibiotics and treating him for parasites just in case, he isn’t any better. The clean up hasn’t been any fun at all either.

I’m not sure if he is not any better because something else is wrong with him or because we had a hell of a time getting him to eat the food with his medicine in it. I don’t know how much of the medicine he even got down. He has a follow up with the vet this Friday, so we’ll see what they say. Maybe they’ll give us another way to give him the meds or run more tests to see what is going on. Either way, more $.

I have also been struggling with exhaustion, full body achiness, and general malaise since our trip on my birthday near the end of October. My CFS/ME is flaring big time. Chronic fatigue syndrome sucks and the name is misleading, because it is so much more than fatigue. It is more like the worst flu that keeps on going and going and coming back again and again.

Wish I had better things to report, but that’s the truth, and I always try to be honest with you all.

  1. Hi, I’m sorry to hear about your kitty and being in a flare up my heart goes out to you as I’m struggling with flare ups of my health and a sick kitty as well. Just wanted to let you know you’re not alone and I’m thinking/praying for both of us. Take care and get some rest.

  2. Aww poor kitty, poor you, and your poor bank balance too. Stress can be hellish with making flare ups worse. I do hope you get some down time to rest and recuperate and focus on YOU, because it sounds like you’re incredibly run down. Sending lots of love & hugs your way, Maranda  ♥

  3. Hi Maranda, I hope your kitty is doing better now. ❤️ I love my cat too but sometimes the vet bills are ridiculous! 😳 I hope you were able to take it easy and get feeling better yourself. CFS does suck, I agree!!!
