Thank you all so much for your support! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! *HUGS* The hida scan was not as bad as I was led to believe it would be. According to my nuc med technologist. most facilities inject the cck (the radioact... Read more

Going to be a long day

Today is the dreaded hida scan. I couldn't sleep last night...mostly dozed in and out. Not to mention, apparently something is blooming, because my allergies flared up big time about 2:00 am. I'm trying not worry, but lack of sleep tends t... Read more

More evidence that soda(Non diet and diet) is horrible

Tuesday, August 11, 2015      2 comments

Soda is something I am doing my best to eliminate from my life completely. I don't drink it often, usually reserved for when I am really dragging or at the movies. I know it is bad in a lot of ways, but an article I read really drove it home (es... Read more

Pushing through...making progress

Friday, August 07, 2015      1 comments

The last couple of weeks have been somewhat better. Still not feeling 100%, stomach pains daily, but not like the three episodes that had me doubled over for hours on end. I am more and more determined to get back to normal as much as I humanly ... Read more

I was up at 4:30 this morning(early for a weekend when sleeping in is about 6:00...I'd feel late if it was a work day..I'm odd) I had blood drawn at 5:30 for my followup appointment on Thursday, then grabbed a bite to eat and went to the park t... Read more

I had my ultrasound today. It will be 2 or 3 days before I find out the results. I am really tired of not feeling good. I am missing who I was more and more! I'm not quite sure what I need to do in order to get me back. I'm really emotional ag... Read more

Now it's time for tests...

My new doctor is delightful... She feels it very well could be my gall bladder. So now for blood work, an ultrasound and a Hida scan. I guess I will watch what I eat, just in case. I have no idea what will set it off. I really don't want a repe... Read more

I had another episode Sunday night...I was up all night with horrible stomach pain and so very sick to my stomach. About 3:30, I got dressed, pulled my futon back together and was seriously going to wake my roommate up and have her take me to ER... Read more

I'm finally feeling more like myself. My stomach is still a little off, but I'm eating all right and my energy is slowly returning. I had to work on my room yesterday, after two weeks of being sick. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't how I prefer it... Read more

Strange, but unexpectedly good day

Headed out for the meeting which the automated yahoo group email said started at noon. I get there (a small, dingy old casino and it's only cafe) and no one is there. I sent a text to my good friend who runs the group, hoping the number I had fo... Read more
