SOME.TMI SO IF.YOU KEEP SCROLLING I TAKE NO OFFENSE
2020 started my #wieghtlossjourney and by December I lost 68pounds (183 to 115) I started the journey for my health but 2020 had other plans
In march my gallbladder went haywire!
In September I found out I have such bad fibroids I needed a total hysterectomy ASAP I opted to try alternative treatments, tradiitonal and non
The 1st while on new meds it messed with my emotions hard core (mixed with covid burn out no doubt) they aggrevated my IBD hard core then bam….my monthly friend has been now visiting for 5 weeks and counting, my lady DR only sees emergancy patients, I am one of those patients but they have severely reduced hours. Tests and appointments are months away no matter how urgent (even at the ER unless you are dying right there and then)
Not bad enough? I’ve been dealing with skin break down on my leg stump, it’s an amputee thing but losing 70 lbs has made it fit like NOT AT ALL and with all the shit going on health wise and in the world getting fitted for a new one is near impossible.
For 3 months now I have a cyst on it that gets so inflamed and infected that the last of my freedom is stripped from me, I am no longer able to fend for myself at all, my home is not equipped for a wheelchair and we have 4 floors, so somehow I need to manage not wearing my leg while surviving.
ALL THIS ON TOP OF FIBROMYALGIA HASIMOTOS AND BEING SO ANEMIC I NEED REGULAR TRANSFUSIONS TO LIVE, AND THE MENTAL IMPACT OF IT ALL
Today I woke up and it is the worst it’s been in 3 months, so infected I dont know what to do
I broke down, I’ve been breaking for months but today I’M BROKEN
If you read this far THANKS
IF you suffer at all.like me HELLO
If you do anything today I ask you BE KIND
Truly someone you know who is always SMILES may he hiding the pain or no longer able to smile.
