another day.

Sunday, March 16, 2014

Trying so hard to be positive. But still not right. I emailed my doctor to see what she thinks and if I need to go back on IV again. we will see. I am trying so hard to keep my mind off how yucky I feel. Walked the doggies with DH their 4 miles. I really didn't feel like it but I keep telling myself it helps with my digestion which I am for sure having issues with.
I am also going to get dressed and run an errand or two with DH. He is frustrated as well that we really just don't know what goes wrong with me when I get like this. And it used to be that the IV solutions brought me right back...this time no so. We are discussing getting a second opinion even though I love my current doctor. Anyway we will see what she has to say.

I for sure try and do everything right....I eat no gluten, dairy(accept for Greek Yogurt) no night shade veggies, no nitrates. No packaged foods...just good foods. It's for sure awful when you have no appetite. So again I say to all of my buddies here....embrace your appetite and fuel your body with good foods.
Anyway with as disciplined as I am I can't help but feel "it's not fair!".

Okay enough pity party for me. Onward and upward...will get on with the day.

I thank you again so much for all your kind words and support. I do so much appreciate it.
Have a wonderful day!

    So sorry you aren't feeling any better by now. The medications does not seem to be working and helping you at all. They may have to change them. You have a bug that needs some other kind of meds it sounds like. Have DH go with you to the doctor and see what else can be done. If what she suggests and does for you don't help get a second opinion. I agree with you no this is not fair or right. You are a very positive person. You do everything right with how you eat etc. It seems like all of this started when you ate a that one restaurant when you was working on FIL house. Are you sure the restaurant was clean and up to US standards? Americans are warn not to drink their water and be very careful where you eat, where you buy food and water. I don't know how things are in the part of Mexico where you live. You can buy food here in the US and get sick too. Even at a restaurent. That is how the food supple of the world is. They do there best to keep it safe for everyone. I do hope you start feeling better real soon. No one deserves to be sick at all. These are suggestions and things to think about. I hope they are of some help to you. Sending Prayers and Lots of Hugs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    !!!!!!Your Way. Elaine

    Sallie, you wouldn't be human if you weren't thinking this isn't fair - its not!! Ditto on the second opinion - it can't hurt. And I agree with the other, while being out a bit is good, don't overdo it. I suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome for almost 4 years (this goes back about 15 years) and one thing I learned was the importance of getting quality rest. You are doing everything you can imagine to do on the food front - but rest is good too.

    oh my stars Sallie I am so sorry I was googling about your condition to try and find help for you. Google this Dr. K news autoimmune & read the article about foods & all what it has to say, I will keep checking around for you. However another opinion I would suggest would be a good start. God is our Great Physician ,but I wish he wold hurry up and get you better, I am still praying ,but I wish God would hurry up I know it is his timing and not ours

    No, it sure isn't fair that you've been saddled with such disabling medical problems, Sallie. I know that feeling myself - it separates us so much from life and the lives we want to live, doesn't it? I hope your doctors are able to come up with some more strategies for you and really do believe that they will. Meanwhile, no one could be more proactive than you have in doing your best to live through and around such miserable symptoms... emoticon

    awww Sallie hate to hear you feeling so low, maybe it's time to rest and let your body recover, hope your doc has some answers for you.

    Nothing is as frustrating as feeling awful but not knowing why. Sometimes even a bad answer is a good thing, just to have an answer that you can deal with.

    I just hope whatever is going on with you will pass quickly. A 2nd opinion never hurts. I recommend that to patients often when they just aren't getting better. A fresh eye and perspective might be a good thing.

    I'm glad you are trying to stay active and do things but don't overdo it either Sallie. I hope you feel better real soon! Keep us posted!

    emoticon you are going through this. I hope and pray your system will get back on track soon. I don't consider you telling us what is going on a pity party. We are all here for a reason, support for one another. Keep that in mind and there is always a reason for everything. Love one another. Hugs! I pray God gives you & your family the strength to get through this. You are strong already, but we can't do it alone. Take care emoticon

    I'm so sorry your iv treatment isn't working (yet) this time.
    It's not in your head- don't feel bad about being sick-
    you are doing all you can about it.
    1498 days ago
    Sounds like you have the right attitude. It'll all come together for you in time.
    1498 days ago
    So sorry you are having to deal with this again. Maybe a second opinion will shed some light on this. HUGS!
