I am so sorry to everyone I'm letting down right now. I'll try to explain. for the last year, I've had stomach issues off and on. It would come through like the tummy flu, I'd be ok for awhile, then it would come back. The last four months it's been way more intense. Two weeks ago I was finally able to eat a real meal after a few weeks of just crackers, bread, peanut butter, juice, water. It's really hard to keep up your strength when all goes down the hill. Since then, it's progressed. Adding a bit of stress hasn't helped. Just when I felt things were starting to grab hold and be better, more chaos.

I ended up in the ER at the hospital Friday. I was miserable, crying, drained and in so much pain. I was so dehydrated I couldn't even pee (sorry TMI moment) to give them a sample. The stress I was in, fed the stomach issues so to speak. Tons of tests, tons of fluids, medications to make it all stop for the most stop. TMI moment two..... I have a UTI that also triggered the tummy issues. Not having the right amounts of fluids staying in caused it. So that made me sicker too. I felt like a pin cushion by then too. It wasn't great....I was released home, and I was able to sleep a few hours. I'm ok off and on, but never for more than an hour or so. They expect me to take antibiotics, but I can't keep them in barely. My regular doc? HA! Try booked out until December! I'm trying to work out how to get in to be seen to see if I can get in to get something regularly for the nausea. 

All in all, I feel like utter facking SHIT. In so many ways. I've cried it seems until I've cried it all out. I sleep but with nightmares. I'm in transition from one doc to another for my fibro shit. It's just a lot to take in and on to be honest. I'm a little better today, But for how long? So every day I have to call in to see if there are cancellations. Honestly, I'd be able to handle the most of it if I could get the throwing up to settle back! Jeesh....

I'm so sorry. I know I owe messages/emails back. I need to send out kits and what not. My goal is to be able to sit down later today or tomorrow at the latest and tackle the to do list. It just depends on the many things that will stay away so I can do that. I'm off to jump in the shower and see if that can relieve some of the stiffness in my body from sleeping on one side for hours lol. I really wish we had a damned hot tub or at least a tub with jets! Those stand up ones you see commercials for? I'd LOVE one of those! Ok totally rambling...hmmm maybe I am better? LOL yeah just a bit.....

Please, please be patient with me. I'm trying, I really am. I promise to bring more goodies as soon as I can. 

With all my heart, ramblings and love....

  5. So sorry to hear you're having health problems.
    As an IBS sufferer, I had a similar, very difficult time at the start and for a couple of years, sigh. I was convinced I had a serious illness but all the tests were negative. Now, in the 20th year, I am doing much better.
    Take care of yourself, health is more important than anything else. Don't wait, go to a specialist and have all the necessary tests.
    Sending good vibes and thoughts, get well wishes, and hugs,
    Ann from New Zealand

  9. Shani, I know all that fibro shit, and stress doesn't make it any better either, fibro + stress could be all related for your stomach probs and nausea, just hope you get the help you need soon. I so feel for you right now, sending you a big warm soft hug know what you are going through...another fibro sufferer, going through similar issues, including prolonged UTI probs. P.S. Have you tried joining an online fibro group through fb, lots of info ♥

  10. Sounds like something I am going through called gastroparesis. Basically your stomach becomes paralyzed at times. Nausea, vomiting, bloating, pain all of these things and more.. you can't hold any food down. Even water won't stay down. Dehydration can be a problem. Basically the vagus nerve that controls the stomach won't work right. So food just sits in stomach for a long time. Do a google search on it and see if it fits what you are going through. You will need to have a gastric emptying study but it is not necessarily the most accurate thing.. You may need a gastroenterologist to diagnose this. I go thorugh this on a daily basis. Just trying to help.. Hope you can figure out what is wrong. Chuck Hurt

  11. You have nothing to be sorry for! Your healthy and happiness comes first and foremost. Your goal is to get better :)

  12. Take care of yourself first. The rest can wait.
