I just wanted to thank all of you amazing, brave people who have given me a new lease on life. My INR is being raised and my Warfarin dose has been doubled to 15mg daily. I am so optimistic as I am already feeling better - my head aches are amazingly better - still get the odd one but not nearly as intense and definitely not all the time. I cannot remember when last I woke up without a head ache!
In a way I do feel a little angry because something as simple as raising my INR could have changed my whole life. If my Doctor had just done a little research he would have discovered it years ago. My illness cost me my marriage - I met my husband when I was 15 and we married 5 yrs later and were married for 25 years. Unfortunately my inability to keep up with him lead to us leading increasingly separate lives- he is a marathon runner, very social and a real get up and go person. He just could't cope with a continuously sick wife and through his running club met some one else who could.
This has been devastating as you can imagine as I am now alone to deal with my health issues. I have 2 wonderful daughters who are very good to me but neither of them live in the same city as me.
I have almost given up on life as I see nothing positive to look forward to. Now at least I may be able to live without constant pain, thanks to all of you wonderful people, I am just so sad it came so late.
Thank you all so very much for all your wonderful support and advise.
Keep strong and fighting the good fight.
