He chatted at length with POeter while they were here about P's very famous multi award-winning brother who writes sci-fi novels... . ...always nervous about mentioning big names, here...:unsure:... . .Anyway, I have put Jack onto you, and he is very excited to have found another author that speaks to him!

Any time a silly has come anywhere near here, I have met up with them.

So there:)

Oh yes! Patteigh even went a little out of her way to Texas just to meet me!

(In my little world of make-believe that was the ONLY reason for her and Mark to be there ;) )

I have actually not read their mag... just their web site. Love it. Is there anything in the mag that is NOT on the site?

Holy crap...only a few hours of sleep last night... . . ...we went to see Madonna's theatrical offering as it stopped off in its tour across Canada...

She is unbelievable in many ways, but mostly in the way her body looks, and MOVES, for a fifty-four year-old.... I was like this :blink: throughout...

Great phun... B)

I have some news I feel I need to share with you psillies. Most of you are aware that I have been in a long term relationship with the same man for the past six years. Without getting into too many details here on the board, I will tell you that about a month ago I decided to break up with him, and he subsequently committed suicide.

While I very much appreciate (and need!) the support that I know I will get from you, I also want you to know that I am also sharing this as I have been feeling disingenuous on the board as of late. There have been a number of conversations I haven't joined as I would need to refer to my relationship in the past tense and I knew you all would notice. So just so you know what's going on, I will be talking about my 'past' relationship from now on on the board.

Bun, I don't quite know what to say. I do understand your feeling of being disingenuous, though. When such a profound, life altering event occurs you are not the same person and it gets tricky communicating as we do on a message board.

You (both) are in my thoughts and I hope you know that I'm always here for you.

Buhgnee, I am so sorry. May your healing keep you strong.....big hugs. :wub:

It sure does.....difficult enough communicating face-to-face with someone after something like this, let alone on a forum....we're all thinking about you, Bhun!

I'm so sorry, Bunbun. What a difficult and tragic thing to go through. And as Patteigh said ......life-altering. Many psillies have backed away while going through their own life-altering events, and it seems that most come back when they begin to heal. Although you may never quite feel the same....I know I don't......it is a comfort to be nestled amongst the psillies :wub: I hope this is a sign that you are healing. I hope to see you popping in from time to time so we can snuggle you up and give you a giggle once in a while. :)

    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
