I have the most amazing, kind-hearted, wonderful husband on the planet. A real man among men and I just cannot express in enough words how much I love you John. You are always a rock of support when I need you and the only wish I have is that I wish I'd have met you much sooner.
I have parents that are supportive and caring and not only my parents but also my best friends in the world. If I had one wish, I'd wish everyone had a relationship with their parents as I have with mine.
I have the best friends a person could ever ask for. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for sharing your lives with me and letting me share mine with you. Good, bad and just the mundane everyday stuff. No person is poor who is rich in friends and in my opinion I'm a trillionaire in that department. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Now to change topic slightly... I've not posted much on this because frankly I don't know much myself yet.
Since August I've lost a LOT of weight and I mean just dropping off and I'm about 30 pounds lighter since last most of you saw me. I wish this was due to diet or my metabolism suddenly working correctly but it's not. Everything I eat makes me quite ill. First there is extreme nausea followed by cramping gas and then within fifteen minutes it is flying out of my body.
I had a joint colonoscoy/endoscopy in December where they found polyps in my colon and removed them (Benign not cancer) and a massive Hiatal hernia, and then in my stomach they found about 20 ulcers, it was hard to find a portion of tissue not ulcerated. The cause? we do not know. It's not stress related, I'm not the sort of person who stresses easily. I'm going to the Doctor again here this afternoon to try and find some medication that will help and try to find the reason for the issues.
When I know more about an actual diagnosis I will update, but it's still unknown as of this point.
I am FINE when my stomach is empty, but eating, yeah not a joy for me right now. About the only thing that sits well i light yogurt and light string cheese. Beverages, water and crystal light tea and even soda, okay no problems. anything with any sort of substance that needs serious digesting? Ugh not pretty.
It's no fun, but not something too terribly difficult to live with right now. As soon as my tummy is empty again I feel better.
The upside, losing weight I have never been able to loose since childhood is nice. I have never eaten much to begin with and the ony reason I was heavy at all was due to my snail like metabolism and the diabetes.
The weight loss is a good thing in my opinion it will make my diabetes so much more manageable in the long run so that is a positive thing out of all of this.
