Just in to say hi

Sunday, July 08, 2012

My apologies to those who have been worried about my not logging in and not posting on SP.

I just have been having migraines every day, sometimes more than one for several hours daily since the 13th of June. The pain has made my b/p go up which is damaging my heart, according to the doctor, as apparently as now I have CHF. I've been to the doctor, (got stronger pain meds), then a week later went to the ER as I was having swelling that was not going down despite Lasix. Got more meds. I am frustrated and kind of depressed and just haven't been really online much because I am so photophobic most of the day, and when I have I just spend a bit of time on FB playing games or reading mostly picture posts and not much else. I haven't even been on SP to log in very much, which is unusual. Not exercising though I'm not eating anything I shouldn't, but it upsets me to not be able to do much of anything, again. Seems like I get a few days then the ceiling crashes down on my head or something.

Saw the cardiologist and get a new workup done over the next week or two. He suggested a lap band, which I am not sure is possible with gastritis?

Hope you all are well.

    Hi Sue, nice to see you even if only for a minute.
    I do hope things begin to improve for you and the doctors give you some relief, your attitude is a bonus, stay positive.

    So nice to see you on Spark. Even though I chatted briefly with you on Facebook it is great to see you on Spark. I'm sorry, but I guess I don't know what "photophobic" means. Maybe it's too many senior moments for me, but I don't know what that has to do with posting. I'm sorry I'm not with it. But anyway, there has to be something for you. You can't go on the rest of your life feeling crappy! So good luck, hon and I wish you the best in your searching for some kind of med that will make you feel better. Love you, Noel

    Dear Sue, I was getting so worried about you as it has been weeks since you checked in or did a blog. I hope and pray your health and consequently the depression you feel will get better very soon. I hate to say it but I doubt that you'd want a band with all your gastric issues. But if the Dr. says it's fine he's the expert. I sure wish your insurance would pay for a few sessions with a psychologist as who wouldn't be depressed with all the health issues you've been going through. You are very much missed and loved by me and many others but I completely understand why you haven't been on Spark. Take one day at a time and anytime you want to vent just send me an e-mail or I can give you my phone #. God Bless You.

    I am very glad you posted but sorry to hear about the complications you are having. In addition to being depressing I know it is very frustrating and frightening.

    Hopefully your cardiologist is one that will get to the bottom of things.

    Like you I would have concerns about the lap band. I was just speaking with a SP friend this week about how careful you have to be with the band and that if I spent that much time on planning proper meals I should lose weight anyway, just not as fast.

    My prayers are with you, please keep us informed so we can encourage and pray for you.
