It's been months since I blogged here. Too many health things have been going on to write about them. A few highlights:
One doctor changed my SSRI, causing havoc to my digestion for months, making another doctor order an endoscopy and colonoscopy, wherein they found that I have lymphocitic colitis. Not really a serious condition but enough to make me plenty sick. I eat Pepto Bismal tablets three times a day now. Enough on that...I can't justify a walk-a-thon, so back to your seats.
Another doctor found pre-cancerous lesions on my (pretty) face and I had to have those cut away. Plus a big stab in my shoulder to get some deep-down evil vanquished. Again, not serious. The antibiotic, however, made me sicker still to my stomach for like a month.
Any more of this body talk is boring and you get the drift.
I am single again, finally and happily. I was choking! It has been difficult to break off the most wonderful relationship I have ever had and the reasons are a bit complex. To sum up: I could not commit to the direction in which the relationship was headed.
Weight-wise, I went up to 243 for a few weeks and am now down to 235. I am eating with care to keep my colitis quiet and eventually that will shave off some weight. I am learning as I go to differentiate between what will double me over with cramps from what will be fine...food roulette. The doctor says I have to find my own zone although we do agree that tabasco and chili peppers will sadly never pass my pouted lips again.
So I am still here. No real dramas I guess. I have read my Spark friends' blogs daily. Hi Karen, Hi Suzie, Hi Jane and Liz and all of you interesting people. I just wanted to be a little quiet. My hair looks good and for that, I remain a grateful servant of my Higher Power, who, ultimately, decrees all good hair days and maketh the stars to shine in the heavens...Oh, and the cats are fine.
Look, Ma! No cancer! A picture from when it all got going...
