Going Thru a Personal Crisis

Posted 09-28-2010 11:57 PM by Sunsetnan

Well, I may not be writing for awhile. Although, writing about it is probably what I need to do. I'm going through a personal crisis, and will be away for awhile. I have been spending my time reading other's blogs and message board posts searching for help.

You know, sometimes, you are going pretty good for awhile, and even start running and start getting up some speed, then - splat- you get hit in the face with a tire iron. I guess life is like that. It takes you by surprise....

The Reglan worked, but it seemed to be making my asthma worse. As a last-ditch plan, I've quit taking the nortriptyline. It might possibly help my stomach, and if my stomach gets better,...

Ultrasound today

Posted 09-22-2010 03:26 AM by coolgama

Today I go to get the US of thyroid and then to see the eye dr for the results. (Testing to find out cause of dbl vision, proptosis, etc.) I sure hope I find something out today because its been a month since my GP sent me on this wild goose chase. This am, I'm feeling really fibromyalgia. No energy and weak. Think once I make it out of the house, I'll pick up something with caffeine in it if I still feel this way. Planning to go on to work after the appointments. May have to call someone...

Chronic Illness and Keeping up with the Joneses

Posted 09-07-2010 09:58 AM by Sunsetnan

How can a chronically ill person keep up with everyone else? This is the question I posed to my husband yesterday. How do even healthy people work full time and yet have time to mow, weed- eat, edge, and blow their lawns, wash their cars, go to their kids games, much less do all the other chores necessary each week?

I have to be truthful here. Although I know I shouldn't, I have to admit I do care what other people think. I want to keep up with the Joneses.

I can't deny it anymore; I'm sick!

Well, it seems that I have something going on. Just when I thought that I would be coasting for awhile, I started to feel worse. The kids have been sniffling, sneezing, and nose blowing a little. Not enough so as one to think that they have something contagious. Maybe just allergies. But, then it starts out as a dry throat in the morning. Then, you're spitting out some thick stuff and your tonsils start getting swollen and then red, and you're more tired...

Yep. You can't deny...
