Hi Daft, thinking of you and hoping you are ok and staying strong girl.
ps - this has got to be the most longest, drawn out post i have ever known since i joined = http://help.com/post/536325-i-need-he…
Hey you’re welcome and you can talk to me anytime….Well, not that I’m on here much of late. I still have some concerns w/my health and have to wait it out before I find out for sure what is up w/me…more bloods in some months to be done :( However, I do feel good so I don’t think it’s anything major.
You keep on believing in yourself and your strength and this (what ever it is) will not beat you! You sound like you have an understanding school there. Keep up the good work and
Bless you always love, X
My school called me today and extended my leave of absence. They then gave me a really nice peptalk. They told me that I only had 3 semesters left and that I have persevered and worked through difficult times before so they know I can do it again. That made me feel really good and was probably the highlight of my day.
I know it sounds kinda silly but to smile in the face of adversity will see you through. The smile will always win, this i promise if you smile genuinely and completely from your heart, so practice while you’re on that bus right now…X (shout you later)
I know!It really does seem that way. Thanks, I hope that the doctor will have some idea as to what is causing this pain. The GE I saw last month (also in Seattle) told me that my pain and nausea didn’t sound like it was related to my gasatroparesis which is why I was there to see him and then referred me back to the guy I see today b/c he said it sounded like it was SOD related.
Btw, have you seen my most recent post regarding my GE issue?
I’ve not been feeling so hot. I am in Seattle to see a doctor as I have been having sharp and severe upper abdominal pain which radiates to my back and some nausea. I have a feeling that I am having a relapse of my sphincter of oddi dysfunction and that the GE here is going to have to perform another ERCP w/ manometry. But we’ll see.
Hi Daft, I just was looking at the past 2 posts of yours and was going to reply but closed, so thought I would send you this - http://livingwithgastroparesis.com/ga…
I don’t know if it is of any help at all, but ??maybe?? Thinking of you, X
Daft, just suggesting “Meditation.” I know you may not be open to this, but just consider and look into it. I strongly feel it will benefit you greatly w/peace & clarity for it is within you. I did a small reading (not w/Tarot but other cards) for you, I hope you don’t mind. X
Daft, I have a question to ask and i THINK I know the answer but just need you to confirm for me.
I have friends listed under my ‘favourites’ but how can I move them over to my ‘friends’ list? Is it that they have not accepted friendship on their side of it?
For this condition, I have a pacemaker installed. They tried meds first but none of them worked. However, when I see the GI doc in Seattle on the 9th I’m going to ask him a/b combining meds with the pacemaker to get a better result.
Good luck w/ your saving and congrats on your engagement!
You poor thing, it sounds not nice. Are you on medications and have you had a change in your diet? No cure, they say. Mmmmmm…..
My plans for the new year are to save like mad for our wedding in 2013. Though it will be small I want it all paid for and done and dusted by the big day, so we can just enjoy. Other than that, a holiday would be so nice for us. What about you? Study?
Yea. I have to go to Seattle to see a Gastroenterologist a/b my gastroparesis. I’m kinda looking forward to that b/c when they did the procedure on my stomach that ended up fixing it they found that my gastroparesis had relapsed and that my gastric stimulator was not working like it should be. So when I see this doctor I am hoping he will be able to help me.
I am majoring in Psychology. In fact, I’m not just getting my Associates but I’m getting my Associates in Psychology. Once I have graduated with my AA, I hope to transfer to the east coast to John Jay college of Criminal Justice and get my Bachelors in Forensic Psychology.
I am glad to hear you are looking foward to the holiday. It sounds like you have a fund day planned. My brother and his wife will be coming over for Christmas and we’ll be exchanging gifts. It’ll be low-key but I always enjoy seeing my brother anytime of the year.
I’m better than I have been in a long time. I don’t have any abdominal pain however, I do have some joint pain which has my doctor thinking that I may have a condition like arthritis.
Emotionally and mentally I am fantastic. Although, I am on break from school, when I was attending I was thoroughly enjoying the course material and accomplishing a lot. I currently have an A in the class and I’m due to graduate with my Associates in October of 2012.
Daft, with this affirmation (or any for that matter) write it neatly on card and put close to mirror. Speak the words clearly and aloud and often!
Rheumatism is associated with fault finding, criticism, etc. so all that talk must STOP. X
