It’s been a while!

I didn’t realize it has been a so long (nearly a year) since I have last posted. Sorry about that. I thought I would give you a quick rundown of my year. It’s been kinda busy.

Ok, so let’s start with my health. My General Practitioner retired on me, so I had to spend some time finding a new doctor I could work with. Always a fun endeavor (NOT)! I did eventually find a good doctor I could work with who takes me seriously. More so even than the old one. When we discussed that I had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, he just rolled his eyes. My family and I have never truly believed that diagnosis for me. I just figured that they had to put a name on it for the insurance company so we could at least treat the symptoms.

The new guy, while continuing the treatments and meds I have been on, immediately started looking in other areas for answers. He ordered tests for things I have been wondering about for years. So far, we have ruled out Celiac, heavy metal poisoning, and a stroke. He is questioning some other neurological issues, but is waiting on other testing first. We are looking into lyme disease, and are waiting on test results for that. He also sent me to see a stomach doctor. I am scheduled for both an upper and lower GI in a few weeks. We are looking at something called a “leaky gut”, some kind of bacteria (the name escapes me) and Crohn’s.

I may not have all the answers yet, but  I am confident I have a medical team now that will keep looking till we find them, finally.

In other news, I have 3 grandchildren now as well.  Jordan is just turned 2. Kylie is almost 1, and Zayden is 7 months. I will find pics and post them in a bit if I can. WordPress doesn’t seem to like mp4 videos which is the most recent stuff I have.

My new doctor has also started me on an anti-anxiety medication which is definitely helping. My depression and anxiety levels are dropping, or leveling out, or whatever is right way to word that, lol.

The only other thing I can think of right now, is that I have been working on a one-shot fan fiction (my first EVER) for SVM. It’s an Eric-Sookie fic, and could desperately use a beta, or co-writer or something.

As always, I will answer any questions you have or simply say hi.

Take care of yourself, without a healthy you, your family and friends will suffer.
