Hello!  Happy Weekend!

Today has been much better than any other day this week!  2 VERY COOL POSITIVES have happened today!

1. I looked at my bank account and was taken aback because there was A LOT of money in there!  It appears that Social Security Disability has FINALLY paid me what they owe me!  I don’t have any written confirmation yet that helps me do the calculations to make sure this is accurate BUT it’s a HUGE step in the right direction!  IT IS ABOUT TIME!  I have waited almost exactly 2 years for them to get it right.  Such a long, arduous and stressful process.

2. I saw a new Gastroenterologist for a 2nd opinion yesterday and it was a really refreshing appointment.  It is so nice to be listened to and to be able to ask all kinds of questions while the doctor PATIENTLY reacts.  I don’t get PATIENCE very often.  Anyway, we THINK we may have some answers about how to help me so I am experimenting with a new treatment and a new theory altogether that should help.  And you know what?  It’s been almost 24 hours since I started it and I’m definitely feeling some RELIEF.  I’m not all better or even close to that, but it was so nice to be able to feel more like MYSELF today and function so much better.  I almost felt like a different person than I have been in quite awhile.  I hope this continues but for now I’m happy with whatever relief I can get when I get it.

Alrighty.  Gonna jump off.  I’ve done way too much today and still need to exercise before having some dinner.  And it’s cool to think that dinner might actually be more than toast.  Thank goodness.  There’s only so much toast a person can eat.  And hey, maybe I’ll even be able to eat my 3rd meal today without having my digestive system freaking out on me the second any food touches it…


Hope y’all have a good weekend!  I’m looking forward to mine!  It’s nice to have some HOPE and actually FEEL it!

    So very glad that you finally went for a second opinion. Sometimes someone different can make all the difference in the world. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that things continue to improve. It’s way over time for you to get some relief and feel better. No one should feel crappy all the time. Just kick back and enjoy the improvement..
    love and miss you lots,

      Love and miss you lots too,
