Aggravated, Disgusted and Discouraged

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

I have had health issues for about 8 months now. I have been going to different doctors, taking lots of test, and changing my medicine around. So far, Bell's Palsy has been ruled out, they know I have problems swallowing, I have the start of cataracts and my eyesight has gotten worse. I still have at least three weeks of tests ahead of me. Meanwhile, the scale has inched upward, despite the changes I have made in exercise and the fact that I have not increased my calorie intake. The doctor says to not worry because she thinks I could probably stand to use a few more pounds. She thinks it may be due to the medicines I am on. If I am going with lower dosages and getting off of some, how can that be? I worry because I gain weight easily and I worked too hard to get the weight off. Depression seems to be setting in again and I am fighting like crazy to have that not happen. I have moved my psychiatrist appointment up from next week to today. Where's my drive and motivation? If anyone has found it, please let me know.

    Oh, sorry to hear that Patty.
not a nice way to feel. I hate not knowing what is wrong and then the supposed experts can't figure it out either and then make rude comments to cover up their not knowing....OOOOOH!

My weight has been creeping up too,but I know why...STRESS, but that should be ending now that we are in our own place and no longer under my brother's thumb and taking everyone's complains at the apt. You've had a lot of stress too, don't we both know it!!!!

Prayers for you my friend.
