Friday, April 26, 2013

still pretty sick and awaiting lab report still. Yes, I have the H Pylori and that needs to be treated but they are looking for something else as well.
I felt so good after the IV all day yesterday but woke up this morning pretty sick again.
I hope we can resolve things soon.
sorry to be a downer....just getting depressed.
I try to check in daily so you all know i am still here.
Hope you all have a better day...going on IV again today.

    You're no downer, sweet Sallie...we'll just be glad to see you feeling much, much better. And you will - soon, I feel sure. It's so hard to see the light at the end of this tunnel when you're right in the very center of it...which it sounds like you are at this very moment. But even though it's impossible to sense, your doctor's working feverishly to help you emerge, much healthier and - as a result - considerably happier, too. Feeling depressed almost invariably goes hand-in-hand with debilitating physical illness, it seems. When the latter part of the equation is solved, the depression magically lifts. More and more, they're wondering if inflammation might not, in some way, play a role in depression. From what very recent studies seem to have found, evidence seems to be pointing in that direction.

    Better days are coming...hold on tight! The tide's about to turn... emoticon - Susan

    Thank you for continuing to keep us all in the loop, Sallie; but posting - yup, even when 'everything' feels negative - is POSITIVE! The true downer is the frustrated thought or feeling that is never heard, never expressed; sometimes it leaks out in misdirected text. So straitford venting is healthier, more ontarget too. Venting and sharing are healthy and at times essential... so whatever you are feeling keep sharing because we do care!

    Don't worry about being a downer. A short note that you're still able to post is enough to keep us from total panic.

    When you can't muster the energy to just check in, then we'll REALLY worry about you.

    Thanks for checking in daily to let your friends know how you are doing. I don't blame you getting depressed with this ongoing issue that is so mysterious, but sure hope you can shake it and not let it get you down. How about some music you love? a good movie? call to a friend? a bubble bath? hope you find something that helps cheer your mood, while you treat your body's problems. Take care, Sallie. Hang in there.
