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.
