.health issues.

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Two steps forward; three steps back. I'm tired of coming back and saying "I'm back!" and then get kicked in the gut and am gone again. So this time I'm just going to say "I'll see you when I see you." I have no clue when that will be. I'm battling some serious health issues and they're kicking my @ss to be perfectly honest. Drs are throwing around terms like Lupus; MS; Muscular Dystrophy. I know many here suffer much worse but for me, right now, it's all I can do to get through each day.

So if you're interested, you can follow my blog at:


I share this with you not for sympathy. I don't need that. But just so that you all know that you're still in my thoughts and I hope, until I return again, I will remain in yours.

    Good Morning Teresa, I just read your whole blog. You have gone through a tremendous amount, and you have a very good attitude about it all. I will pray that the doctors find some answers for you. Have you considered going to one of the Mayo clinics? One of my sisters was diagnosed with Elher-Danlos syndrome several years ago and Mayo ended up playing a huge role in normalizing her life. She also is on daily pain medication, but she is leading as close to a "normal" life as possible. The doctors at Mayo helped figure out what to do and the surgery she needed for her jaw to help her. I don't think you have what my sister has, but I'm just suggesting that perhaps you could get a referral to be seen there.
All of your efforts to change your diet and add any small increments of exercise could only be helpful to you. There is so much evidence out there now about a diet free of many chemicals/additives/sugar can make a huge difference in your health. Since you only have one kidney, and perhaps half of others in your body, it would make sense that you need to be extra "good" to them and not make them work too hard to process foods that are not optimal for your health. You sound like you are on the right track to do what you can. I encourage you to keep moving in that direction! Hugs to you and I am glad you are keeping us updated because I have been thinking of you and wondering how you were doing. Kathy emoticon
