thank you everyone for all your good wishes. I had my blood test yesterday and unfortunately my parathyroid levels have increased yet again. Not good news.
This whole incident has left me doubting myself. I know I have taken care of me for years but whatever happened has destroyed my confidence. Not a good feeling. I only thing I have changed lately is that I went on Magnesium, I did a lot of research on the Net before I started and found out that I could take them with my Chronic Kidney disease.
Felt really good for about the first 4 weeks then I felt tired (worse than usual) and felt like I was brain dead. I then fluked on a webpage that said do not take Magnesium with CKD as the kidneys cannot absorb this and will turn toxic in the body. So much conflicting information. This has stressed me out and caused me to doubt myself.
I should add that I went off these over a week ago.
Over my time researching I had found a lot of info that had helped me deal with my health problems but this has rocked my boat.
I really do need to accept that i made a mistake and get on with it. I have been fighting CKD for over 29 years and was told about 25 or more years ago I would be on dialysis then. I have actually be told that many times but I am still not on dialysis so I must be doing something right.
I am now off sugar, ya for me.
Now I must get my life back under control.
PS after reading and thinking about this blog, I have remembered that I have done this before and can do it again. I need to remember the positives like when my Neph stated that "whatever I am doing, keep doing it". The comments from doctors and Specialists that I am looking really well. So many good comments. Even my blood test really could be worse. There are only a few things that are wrong.
Note to self. GET OVER IT WENDY AND GET ON WITH THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
