Just over it already...

Posted 07-09-2015 11:31 AM by Rdbomb94

I was admitted to the hospital back in May for pneumonia for a week. Got out with anti biotics, steroids, and oxygen. My lung dr put me back on a 6 week prednisone taper starting at 30mg. I'm at 10mg and I'm getting shortness of breath again. to the point where I need my oxygen which I haven't had to use lately. I have major anxiety so that doesn't help at all. I also suffer from Interstitial Ling Disease and wonder if that's playing a factor. I'm just in a funk... my health probs just keep adding...

The path to normalcy...

Posted 05-21-2015 10:01 AM by Rdbomb94

I've been out of the hospital for a week now. I was in there a week for pneumonia. I've been released with oxygen. I'm concerned because my breathing is still so bad after walking around. The hospital stay itself wasn't bad. trying to get my pain meds was a nightmare. I also went back to work dragging my oxygen tank behind me. It's good to be home tho.

I recently underwent surgical treatment for primary lymphedema in my right leg. The procedure, called [B]LVA[/B] ([B]Lymphaticovenous Anastomosis[/B]) was performed on April 21, 2015 and I’m already seeing a significant improvement in my swelling!

LVA graphs the lymph lines to a vein to allow the lymph fluid to drain via the vascular system.

I'm 30 years old, I was diagnosed with primary lymphedema 11 years ago in my right leg. It was manageable for about 8 years with...

Admissions of a Hypochondriac

Posted 04-25-2015 12:20 AM by W0438548

I'm Hannah. I'm admittedly a hypochondriac. I suffer from severe anxiety. I am here to talk about my problems with other people experiencing hypochondria. My hypochondria began when my mother started battling heart disease. I am only 24 years old. The only family I have is my mother and my sister who is disabled. I constantly think I have cancer. Ive thought I've had breast cancer, leukemia, brain cancer, melanoma, and am admittedly currently worrying I have throat cancer. My neck below my jaw has...

Story of my Wound - Accomplishment - Knitting

Posted 12-11-2014 05:00 AM by RABG

What an odd title, what does it mean? For me knitting gives me pleasure, a sense of worth, a goal, and then accomplishment.

I have been knitting for almost 40 years and in that time I have had my own business, designed endless Christmas stockings, knit for others, and then finally for me.

I quickly learned from my PD waiting room that so many people are defined by their pain or condition. I decided that wasn't for me. I had to have something that would give me a sense...
