Stacy's November journal

I had been thinking I wouldn't do any journaling until I'm healthy again, but I realized I'm using the health problems as an excuse to eat terribly. Exercise is out of the question for now until I find out what's going on, but there's really no reason I shouldn't do better with food.

{HUGS} Stacy that is just so lousy about the docs not being able to figure out what's wrong! Do you have any more imaging tests or anything that is going to help narrowing down what the problem might be? I hate the wait and see attitude, especially when you're so miserable with pain.

You know chronic pain is one of the worst things to deal with - it saps you of energy, it depresses you, and if you're anything like me when you're feeling down the first thing you reach for is food that is absolutely no good for us. Sigghh.

I hope that gastroenterologist has some answers. Honestly how many doctors do you have to see before you get a proper diagnosis! If they can't find anything wrong definitively would you consider something like accupressure for pain management?

Oh Stacy that sucks so much the pain you're going through! I hope soon you will find some relief! I need to get back to my journaling too but mine is just out of laziness!

Hey Stacy how was the weekend? How are you feeling?

I saw some pictures you posted - it still looks like summer out there! Well okay, maybe Autumn. I'm absolutely jealous!

Anyways, let us know how you're doing!

Sorry I haven't been on the board lately. I've been terrible with food and haven't been able to exercise, so I'm now totally flabby and gaining weight. I still have pain on most days when I'm seated all day, so the next step is a trip to a gastroenterologist in a week. I hope he can tell me something. After Thanksgiving I really need to get back on track as much as possible!

Stacy you certainly don't have to apologize! I hope that the gastroenterologist has some answers for you! You must be about fed-up with this by now, and I know that when you get to that point it's almost like you just don't even care anymore. When my colitis was at its worst was really almost when I was eating my worse, which just made everything more severe, but it was just a vicious cycle. Once they found the medication that worked, I felt a little more positive so felt better about getting my eating under control. Anyways, I know it must be tough, and I hope you are at least feeling a little bit better than you were. Keep us in the loop!
