Hello everyone! Yes I'm aggravated!!! But, I'll start with something positive. My EGD & colonoscopy came back great. My varicies didn't need any banding (no bleeders) nor have they grown in size. The only thing that concerned the Dr was some inflamed areas in my colon that he took a few biopsies from. Now I'm waiting on those results. I feel like they'll come back fine as well. Now the only things I'm aggravated with are the URQ & joint/muscle pain. My hep started me on Lyrica to see if it would help. The only thing that did was turn me into a edgy monster 😤. So, here I am again playing tag team with his staff ,& getting no answers. I just want my 43 year old self back without feeling like I'm beyond my years. Then there's my fiancee who seems to be in denial, yet again. He acts as if I should be just fine because my results came back great. He goes from being helpful & somewhat supportive to "since you're not working things should start getting organized around here." I feel like he gets rather upset with me when I do nothing but sit in my recliner. This really doesn't happen too often. It's like he thinks that this disease is going to go away. Asks me why I act like I'm 80 (no offense intended). I'm not supposed to lift anything over 25lbs but I always seem to be the one carrying the laundry up & down my basement steps. I wish it would get through his thick skull that, yes, she is sick & yes she needs my help & support. I think this bothers me more than the physical pain I have daily without relief. His support would mean the world to me at this point. We've been together for over three years now. I've never hidden the fact that I'm sick. Told him about PBC before we were ever dating. Neither of us had any intentions of having a relationship together. He's 13 years younger than I, maybe this is one reason we aren't so "together" these days. Thanks for listening fellow PBC' ers. Blessed to have you all
