Mom is doing great and now we just wait for the next steps. I decided to come home yesterday. At first we were doing to do it over two days and then I decided if I was coming home I wanted to move in one trip and make a promise to go to the gym tonight. Somehow I managed to pack everything into my Integra with my dad, including the cats and bring it all over here in one shot. I also kept my promise and went to my Monday night Yoga class with Ginny which I always love so I can't believe I just went months again without going. I've lost another bit of weight again and I'm very excited about that with the nice weather coming and getting back into my gym habits being home again. This is that time of year when I start loving living here again. It's a walking city, I need to walk. Tomorrow is a crazy rainy day and I plan to get to the gym anyway. I'll put sweats on over my gym clothes with my rain coat if I have to. I'll go to bed earlier and eat dinner a lot earlier now. I'll keep improving my diet and working on my health.
I found out what was really wrong with me and now I can finally, correctly treat what's going on. My anxiety symptoms and the the list of other stuff that is wrong is all caused by my hiatal hernia. Every single little thing stems from this wee defect. Nothing that can be fixed, just something chronic that get treated. I'll be getting an upper GI again to check it. The endoscopy is during Spring Break and I got the first appointment in the morning so I'll be home for breakfast. My gastroenterologist, who's amazing, is going to be the only one I'm working with now. I won't be seeing the psychiatrist after all, no more drugs that I hate. Right now I'm on protonix and it's already working on the night time pain and I'm sleeping through the night without having what I thought for years were panic attacks. I don't have to be afraid to sleep anymore, and I know how to keep myself from getting sick, which means I won't miss any more days of work and I can start a 100% streak beginning with March.
What I'm going to do now is get to bed 'early' even though it's after 10pm and I'm up at 5:30. Sweet dreams everyone.
