Tara, Anne, Steph, Jenn, Gracie, Laura, Shan, Michelle, Beth, E, Allison.......thank you so much for your words of support and love yesterday! I'm so thankful for all your wonderful posts..they made me feel so much better!! I'm crying again....

Anyway...DH does indeed want me to focus on me and my health. Getting to feeling better to him is much more important than us having another baby. He said would it be the end of the world if we only had DS? Of course that didn't make me feel any better- worse actually, but he's right in that I really need to get these diseases under control. I wish that I could say that IBS was my only problem, but after this endoscopy I'll be one more step closer to the FM diagnosis, which is most likely the underlying cause of the IBS...it's crazy how these diseases feed into each other. I've already told DH I'm enrolling at the gym and going to take water aerobics and yoga- yay, that at least will help (I hope) with my soul and mind (helping keep my brain unfuzzy) as well as my physical body. The dr agreed that walking is out, too much impact and I seem to be too sensitive to sunlight now- makes my skin really red, and that while losing all these 11 pounds I've gained since November may take a long long time, at least I can get where I'm not gaining anymore- yay- I'd be very happy with that!! I talked with the dr office today- she's already called in the antidepressant med (Lexapro?)... so I'll add that to my other four and make it an even handful- lol!!! I've joined a FM and CFS board- that will help a lot too, being on a board where people are experiencing what I am.

You ladies are so amazing...so remarkably strong, so very much full of life and love...I promise I won't leave you. I'll get my BFP eventually, I know that. Most of all I want to see you all graduating from here before me!!!! (((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))) LOLove, Connie XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX!!!!!!

Hey girl!!! Sooooo Sorry I didn't post to you yesterday...it seemed that someone got on my puter and something was causing things to crash for no reason. ***Hugs*** You should take a jont up to Ogden and play with my baby horse, she will put you in great sprits, I promise!!!. We are gonna have to get together and do something again, you are sooooo awesome, and I hope its your turn very soon. DH just loved you and thought you were an extreamly nice person, and hopes you feel better very soon as well.

Well its late and I have to be up at 6am to go riding at Antelope Island for a few hours tomorrow, so I will catch you later. Keep you're chin up, I have been through IBS (well Chron's Diesase) and although its not fun there is always a bright side, you'll get there soon I know it. You are very strong and I can tell that nothing will get you too down!!!

***Hugs*** again.

Connie, you are an amazingly strong woman and I really and truly just KNOW that you'll get this under control and be feeling so much better soon. I am glad to hear about your plan to join the gym. That seriously helped me more than anything else, and when I stop exercising for awhile, I can really tell a difference. DH is right in that it wouldn't be the end of the world if you never had another baby, but I honestly don't think that it will come to that. I think that you'll get your definitive diagnosis soon and you'll take the meds that you need and alter your lifestyle and before you know it, you'll be feeling so much better that you'll be TTC again. Drop in from time to time to let us know how you are. You have always been such a huge comfort to me on this board when I needed it and I hope that I can repay the favor a little bit. None of us care if you're TTC or not, we just care about YOU and don't want to lose such a wonderful member of the board. So keep us updated and in the meantime, take good care of you. -Anne
