Thought I'd post to get some writing therapy. I'm living with 7 health conditions now & take about 10-15pills a day. 2015 has been more about my health & changing my lifestyle - Eating & drinking healthily, identifying spiritual needs, spending time getting to know my new self. I'm not perfect at it but will keep trying.
2015 - I spent the 1st six mths with Severe Anaemia (my body wasn't functioning & not digesting iron). I had an Endoscopy, Colonoscopy, Kidney/Liver scan, breast cancer tests - mammogram, scan (a benign cyst was found). Due to pain below my belly button, I had a Pelvis & transvaginal scan to check my ovaries & cervix. Found out on Thurs that I have Fibroids down there. This has brought my health conditions to 7. I've also got a cyst on my spine. All of these will have to be monitored for growth by myself (initially).
I feel mentally & physically exhausted as I've gone thru it all alone. I've felt so distressed at times, I phoned the Samaritans - early hrs in the AM. They are great listeners & quite empathetic.
In general, most people are either saying "oh well, could be worse" or "so are you working...why not?". After 6yrs of relentless & continual health issues/illness, I'm exhausted so I've taken time out/alone time.
I'm still learning to do what's best for me & not other people (which I've done most of my life).
I'm praying 2016 will be the start of our health being stable, feeling confident & less sensitive to ignorant behaviour, work in a job that inspires not drains, learning to love family unconditionally, feel lovable, enjoy the power of now moments & look to the future not the past. Amen!
Wishing you all a Merry Xmas & a Happy New Yr full of joy, peace & good health!
