I hope I can join y'all here.. Cause as of today.. I have made the decision too no longer be a darn victim in my own BODY.. The anger in me has led me too this phase in my life.. Victim be Gone I say
...I have felt sorry for myself for over 19 months.. all my medical issues, have really had me down, with good reason.. really, but no more.. dang it...
My story is a long one, and I have been through the wringer, will try very hard too break it down for you.. It started alomst 19 months ago, after the birth of my 4th and final baby. Some symptoms actually started during my pregnancy, Like having allergic reactions too things I have never in my life been allergic too( like make-up, and tooth paste, certain foods ) My wedding ring... I would get itchy blisters, and I have been married for 20 yrs, same wedding ring on the same finger for same amount of yrs........ALso.. after my son's Birth I was DX'd with Burning Mouth syndrome, this is NOT a pleasant thing too live with..... I now have some Neurological symptoms that have since popped up, that not even my neurologist can figure out.. feeling faint like I will pass out at any given time, I get a pulsing/pressure sensation in my brain, I'll wake up out of a sound sleep like there is eleteric shocks going on in my brain..I just had an EEG for this 2 days ago.. I have an intense urge too clench my jaw all the time, I hate this feeling so much
, but TMJ has been ruled out...
I do have PCOS/ Insulin reisistance
I seem too be allergic too everything under the sun. I feel as if my body is just attacking itself( sometimes I think LUpus ). Up until the birth of my last son, I was a pretty health woman. I think I know what happened. I have too be pre-medicated for his birth, he was a c-section, so for 24 solid hrs, I get antibiotics ( he was a winter baby ) at this time my Immune system was pretty much kapoot from all the antibiotics, and I think things just went down hill for me after that.. Like I just could never get back too a certain health point I was before my sons pregnancy.. but this is just my thpery....anyway too make matters worse with the immune system thing 10 days after he was born we all got this horrible stomach bug, this bug was so bad my baby ended up in ICU for 3 days, and ever since this stomach bug, I have never been well since. I think we got some bug from the hospital..
Anyway... there really is alot I am leaving out.. Like the thrush I had during my pregnancy from all the UTI's and Macrobid I took...then my adrenal crapped after my sons birth so I was on steroids for this for alomost a yr, am now weaning off them... with the steroid I put on 40 pounds and have NO IDEA how this happened...I ate no more then I normally would, all this fat sort of just showed up out of no where... And I am not a small girl too begin with...
I am frustrated with not having answers as too why I am so sick, I cannot even begin too tell you how much I have gone through.. the blood work... the NRI's, the CT scans, The amoount of Dr's.. all too be told I am normal...I am seeing a new ENdo who I am hoping can help me. I am told he is the best of the best. Frankly, I do not think it is normal too be allergic too pretty much everything you eat..I had en EEG done the other day, and got blisters on my forhead from the gel they used too hold on the leads.. NOT NORMAL...So I am hoping maybe I can get my new endo too listen..or maybe my Neruo too lkisten when I go see her...too discuss the results.. In the meantime..
I am angry and ticked off, and tired of being a fat moose, and a victim in my own body. I have decided, too work out, and go gluten free too see if maybe this might help, ang going luten free will be the biggest obstacle for me
, so I could really use some supposrt..
So for the first time in 19 months, I got on my treadmill 2 days ago, and waled for 24 minutes
I felt really good afterwards too, but also realized just how out of shape I was..
I would love nothing more then too become a part of this group.. I sure could use all the support I can get.. Lord knows I need it!!
