very worried and stressed and scared

Friday, June 28, 2013

Hi everyone,
Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile but a lot has been going on with me. I am still trying to find the right medication that works for me. I know that it is a process before you get the right medication that works but at the same time it is frustrating I just want to feel better. On top of that I went to the emergency on June 19th because I was having a very bad pain in my side around where my ribs are on the right side. The did an ct scan and ran blood test. When I went it was late at night so the radiologist wasn't there to read the ct scan. So they told me to follow with my family doctor is a few days for the results. The next day I get a call from the doctor that I saw in emergency and she tells me that my lymphnoids are enlarged and that I need to make sure I make an appointment with my doctor. On Tuesday I went to see my doctor and was told that my liver levels are high. The reason for the enlarged lymphnoids could be something as simple as a cold or as serious as cancer. now they are running test and I am so scared.

    Waiting for results is so hard. It is a limbo time when you feel helpless. Hope they get the results to you soon. Hopefully it is all a false alarm and all will be fine. I will keep you in my prayers and send positive energy your way. Stay strong and trust in God!

    Oooo! I would be scared and stressed too. Have you tried any medication for Anxiet as well as the depression meds. Works for me where on or the other alone does not. Also it takes 2 kinds of depression pills along with the anti anxiety attack meds. Took quite a bit of experimenting before I got the right combination from the doctor. You will feel so much better when you find the right meds. After about 2 years I was steady enough to come out of a clinical level and start to work on some of the triggers and causes of the depression itself. Don't give it up! Btw I take a mixture of Celexa in the am and Lamictal morning and evening and an ativan dose am and pm. I do have problems biologically that affect me when I am off meds so I have to face that I will always be on meds for that. But my big hope for myself and for you that there will come a time when neither of us has to take depression meds anymore! emoticon

    Tanya, I am thinking of you and praying for you-I know waiting can be sooo hard!

    But hold onto Peter 5:6,7 that says,
    "Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast ALL your anxiety on Him because He cares for YOU!"

    I recently needed to be hospitalized for 10 days for the doctor to do a medication adjustment for my bipolar disorder. I still don't think they have it right. I'm going for another follow-up Monday the1st. It takes several weeks (4 -6 ) on new psyche meds to see a difference and takes them a while to get it all figured out. I have to be patient. I can understand the stress of that with new stress added on top of it. Praying for rest of mind, peace, and patience for you. Take care. Let God take care of you. In times like this, I pray for God's perfect will for me to be done. Praying the same for you. God bless.

    I'm so sorry you're under this new - and severe - stress, Tanya...and I know you must be feeling very anxious about the diagnosis. Please keep us posted. There's nothing like medical stress, I know...but from my own experience in dealing with a fair amount of it, I've always felt better once they had the answer, even if the answer wasn't what I wanted to hear. There's something about trying to deal with the unknown that's very stressful indeed. I've always tried to distract myself however I could while waiting for medical test results. Even a nap can help... emoticon

    I am sorry to hear about the test results. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Try not to worry too much. Let us know what they find out when you hear something from the test they are running now.

    I will be saying prayers that everything will turn out alright for you. I hope that they get the medicine worked out. I went through something similar in March with a lung problem. It took 7 days in the hospital to find the right medicine to allow me to breath. emoticon emoticon
