Health problems

Sunday, June 22, 2008

Ok, I haven't been feeling well lately. I wanted to explain a little bit as to why. Well actually, I don't know why. But I do know what I've been experiencing!

I've been basically experiencing being : lightheaded, dizzy, nauseous, weak, fatigued, etc. I'm eating plenty. Lots of fruits and veggies. I've been increasing my protein a bit, that seems to have helped some.

I also haven't menstruated since March 22nd. Since my husband and I are TTC (trying to conceive) I got my hopes all up! But I've taken multiple tests, multiple times, and they are all negative. Plus, I don't have any other symptoms of being pregnant.

I'm not even down to a "normal" weight, considering the BMI says I'm "overweight." Also, considering I'm still a size 14/16! So I wouldn't think that I have lost so much weight that I would stop ovulating! But who knows? I do know that I used to lose 10 pounds every month to two months. But the last 10 pounds took three months and I've been the same weight now since May 29th.

I'm considering taking a break to maintain. I don't want to specifically try and put weight back on unless I talk to a doctor about it and they want me to. I want to be a normal weight! I'd love to be able to shop in a store that isn't for plus-size women! But I'm also very concerned about my health.

My husband is working on getting us health insurance. I hope it works out! Because both him and I should have seen doctors about various things for quite some time.

Oh! Also...I've always had sensitive skin, but I've noticed that I'm breaking out in rashes way more often than usual. I keep trying to use OTC meds, but they don't seem to be helping as much as they used to.

So anyway, I just wanted to explain myself a little bit better. If I actually get to see a doctor and can figure out what all is wrong with me, I'll be sure to let you all know! Especially if I can see a mental health professional too. Ooh and a dentist. I was supposed to go see mine for some follow-ups awhile ago, but my health insurance ended before I could. I think they did the original work like two days before it was ending, and they wanted to follow up, I said "sure, when I get health insurance again!" That was...two years ago? I don't remember.

Ok seriously, I'm done typing. I hope everyone is doing well, having a great weekend, and if you have health insurance don't put off seeing the doctor! Understand your luck! lol

    hope you feel better!!! You look great, I must say it's hard to see you at the size you say, because you look alot smaller than that...regardless, you have made incredible progress. God bless you and keep you on your journey :)
