Sleeping Beauty

Monday, May 06, 2013

I've been getting more than my fair share of sleep. I do not know if it is because I am still healing or if it is a side effect of coming off the medication for my GI issues. Ah though the Doctor stated that my ulcer is healed, I still had a red area in my stomach. ... I was good no spicy stuff or margaritas for Cinco de Mayo.
But sleeping has been my main activity of late. I hope that means I am healing. It seems that my stomach is fine when I am not eating, but once I start my stomach feels better when I continuously eat.

The battle within wages on. Being in distress, it is difficult to think clearly and pursuing a solution has been haphazard. On good days I push forward, on bad I curl into a ball. How do individuals who are ill supposed to advocate for themselves?
I have been contemplating alternatives since I'm not really getting answers from traditional medicine.

What would you do?

    I am sorry for your distress. I don't know what I would do. I think I would need to ask, if this were my child what would I do. (We seem to fight much harder for our children don't we?) So if it were your child with these symptoms would you accept these results?

    I have always thought if you are sleeping, your body is asking that of you. Perhaps it is part of your healing right now.

    Would acupuncture ease any of your stress/symptoms?
    Would you consider a consult with a homeopathic physician?

    You present such a positive force to us here in Sparkland. emoticon

    Good question on advocating for yourself. I am to the point I want to stop eating processed foods. Something is clearly amiss in our society and the "go to easy to fix processed foods"

    Glad to hear the ulcer is fixed however - you are healing so keep on being nice to yourself.

    Sleep is so healing, so that's good that you're getting lots of rest. May MENTALLY annoy you when you'd rather be up to your regular routine, but it's a good thing.

    Awwww, that's good that the Dr. says your ulcer is healed and you were able to resist those Cinco de Maio foods that aggravate! NOT EASY!
