My health and so on....

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

I've been struggling allot lately mostly due to some health issues. I know that most of the health problems I'm dealing with are weight related so that makes things that much harder. Over the last month or so I've lost weight and then gained it and more back which is SOOOOO aggravating when I feel like I should be losing. I've struggled with the same health problems for a while now and the doctors can't seem to figure out what's going on. Therefore I feel like I'm losing my mind and falling into the big black hole called depression.

This week I am really swollen in my lower legs and feet. The heat we've been having lately has contributed to that but not sure where the rest is coming from. The pain in my lower back and hips has come back after being gone for a couple of months and boy is it making up for the time away. I have a major Vitamin D deficiency that is slowly working its way up. My levels started out less than half of what they should be about 4-6 months ago. I'm EXHAUSTED all the time, all I want to do is CRY because I am that tired. I'm sure we've all been there at some point and time but to be there 80-90% of the time is insane. I feel like giving up and crawling in a hole somewhere and just going to sleep. Guess its time to bite the bullet and try to get in with another doctor and see if we can figure some of this stuff out.

    so sorry you are struggling. I have found that you know you better than any doctor & it often pays to use sites such as webmd & do lots of research & try things out on your own, along w/ finding a doctor who can help you.

    Please don't give up!!! We are here for you & pulling for you & you have to fight for yourself - you are worth it!!!!!

    I know it is hard to take care of yourself when it doesn't seem to be working and you're not seeing the results you want. Keep at it and don't give up. Your heath is worth the persistance and effort.

    hang in there. every time i feel like that i remember my mom telling me and my brothers, "everything can be fixed except death" so don't give up. it might take time but you can do anything you set yourself to do. losing weight then gaining it back is soo fustraiting so forget about you gaining it back and start over, we just(must) have to let things go and start over. it will get better soon!

    Oh girl! It's so hard to be motivated to even do the normal daily activities when we are in pain and exhausted all the time. I can sympathize in that regard! Good for you for going to a new doctor to try and figure this out! I assume one of them is an endocrinologist? Does your current doctor have you on any Vitamin D supplements? You should ask if rickets is possible seeing as though your levels are so low. That was the first thing that came to mind with your back and hip pain.

    As much as you'd probably much rather just stay in bed and sleep all day, keep bugging those doctors for some answers! And hang in there. It's gotta get better soon!
