Arthritis called Duprytrens Contracture

Hello

I had surgery on one finger for Dupurytrens Contracture. That's is a arthritic disease where the cords in the palm to the fingers thicken and pulls the fingers into a fist.

After the first surgery on one finger it flared up all the other fingers and they are curved inward deformed and frozen.

Then a dr. That treats DC with needle aponeurectomy. This is where the hand is injected to block pain and a needle is used to break up the thickened tendon...

I told myself I would try and write everyday. That was a new years resolution kind of thing. So here I am.. even though today is one of my less articulate days. You should have heard me trying to pray in the shower.. stumbling over my words and editing my sentences... in a prayer (I was and am a grammar nerd at times). Anyways. feelings...
Today I feel okay. I feel like parts of me are starting to peek through this cloud of angst and fear. It makes me scared (surprise surprise) that my creativity...

Day 4 on Epival and I think my body is trying to go into a "high". I'm not feeling the doom and gloom today; I woke up feeling like shopping. Any other day, that would be okay. I would indulge .. but these days I'm all like "oh it's just your chemicals Bethany"! So yes, I am confused. Today I am somewhat happy whereas yesterday I was helpless !? I also had a dream about things I do in my "highs".
I'm going to book an appointment with a therapist I used to see...

One day at a time

Posted 01-01-2015 at 01:34 PM by beth950 (Dealing with my mind)

Day 3 of Epival..I'm feeling scared. Fear is not the way to ring in the New year. I'm trying to think positive; I have a supportive family, a (somewhat) understanding boss, a great doctor and I'm being treated. But I'm still scared- what if this doesn't work? When can I trust myself again? When can I trust that the things I'm feeling and doing aren't a result of a chemical "high" or "low"? I'm constantly questioning myself now. Am I doing this because of chemicals or is this...

New Diagnosis – Bipolar, Cycloythymic, losing my marbles

So. July of 2007 I had turned 18, moved out of my parents house into my own apartment and enrolled in my first year of university. A little bit of an adjustment period there. I slowly started losing weight, stopped sleeping, started crying at random times and would get these episodes of fainting (dizziness, numbness/tingling, nausea, diarrhea, tunnel vision, tachycardia and just a feeling that I was losing control and intense fear). I'm 5'3 and dropped down to 89 lbs. My mom thought I had...
