I have had a year of ups and downs with Ians problem then in nov Dr decided to change meds get what heavier than i have been in 4 year up to 212lb waist 128 hips 128 feel like mrs blobby. The dr say it will sort out when meds get sorted but i feel like someone has had me to the garage air pump.So feeling a liitle psd off at the moment.
Dr says he cant put me in for foot op till they sort cardio problem out which could take months
I havent been overdoing the food honest i do more undereating than ever as i never feel hungry and 10lb went on overnight probably meds making me retain water.plus cannot do other at times.
My clothes still dont feel any different though
My temper is shoret i can cry at the drop of a hat and the thought of food makes me want to be sick
Christmas day i only had a small plate full of mainly veg and after about 2 hours felt really sick and felt like that ever since.
We go to Christie in Manchester for Ians check up He opted to work on NY day thank goodness and goes on ski tour again thurs.
I dont see Gp again till 3rd week in jan but i am thinking of moving it forward. The meds he gave me in place of prozak suck i gor amytriptaline back and he changed my nifedipine from 15m at night to 10m am and 10m pm which cause constipation so gp says Great.
I just wish it was sorted Now dwp messing benefits up have to go to a back to work interview on jan 9th it takes me all day just to dress never mind anything else but this goverment are a pain in the butt They give alcholics extra money for their addiction so why dont they sober them up and get them back to work.
I know one he getts 144 a week benefit and is always on the scrounge yet you see him at least twice a day coming from the garage with 8 cans in his carrier,he says he cant work because he has bad hands at least he can carry 8 cans and open them then drink them which is more than some of us can.
I havent been able to get out so all exercise has to be indoors maybe after holidays JJ will meet up when we get a dry day to do a walk.
This next year cannot be as stressful as the last but I AM NOT GIVING UP emoticon I will keep pushing my determination is there I just need the energy but i will do 10 mins at least every day on st bike walk 1 mile or more every day and any other exercise for up to 30 mins a day I WILL and CAN DO IT Happy New Year to you all and thank you foir being there for me emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you have had a 'bummer' of a year!
Hopefully 2013 will seem boring. I am hoping
that for myself!
Maybe the dr. has you on steriods! Is that possible!
That can do it.
Hugs,
Janet

    You sound so low! I hope 2013 will be much, much better for you. I know with my multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, migraines and persistent side effects of long ago cancer treatments, I have some ups and downs. My very dear younger brother died last January as I held his hand and sang to him after staying at the hospital with him for more than two weeks...multiple organ failure due to alcoholism he could never beat. Then my dad died in February while I was on a plane to get to him. A few months later another very dear friend died unexpectedly. A difficult year, but the Lord has blessed me in so many ways along the way. I know I can d all things through Himwho gives me strength...Phil 4:13. Hang in there! You can do it.

    I can relate to your flustrations. It's easier for men to get disability here in the states than women. It took me three or four different judges. The first ones were "anti-women" in my lawyers view. He says the system is totally unfair. I finally got my disability after 4 years of flustration.
Meds can screw your system up terribly. I can't remember the one my doctor put me on in 2010 but all I did was eat. That was the year of gaining 30 lbs. Finally the headaches it caused made me quit taking and then call my doctor. He finally agreed it could have been causing the problems. I know it did. You have to stick to your guns if you feel your meds are problematic. They affect different people different ways. Tell your doctor about them and if you feel there are problems you have to let them know you can't take them. See your doctor as soon as you can about them. The meds can cause bloating and all sorts of nasty problems.
Good luck with everything. emoticon
