A Journal Direction


So this is becoming a health blog and I guess I’ll start sharing my health or unhealth journey as I experience whatever this is since I have no idea.  For the last 6 months or more..actually the weight loss part has been over a year, I have been losing weight quickly, having terrible abdominal cramping, diarhea & constipation alaternating..more diarrhea lately, no appetite, fatigued, muscles ache a bit,..of course there are my normal headaches and my depression has gotten worse.  I dread the thought of getting together with friends because that means being near a restroom most times and/or going out to eat and I hate the thought of going out to eat, not to mention how to explain my restroom habits.  I am down to 95 lbs.  Remember those stick figures we drew in school?  You could draw my portrait that way.  I have had numerous tests done which are coming out negative and every time I come across something that my symptoms could match I ask to get testesd for it.  I am getting tested for Addison’s Disease soon since I just looked that up and most symptoms seem to fit.
 We think this may have something to do with the metabolic disorder I was born with and my Insurance Company has finally approved me to see a Specialist after a month of arguing due to the fact that he is at a Children’s Hospital and I am an adult but in the meantime, I continue to suffer.
  So, perhaps..I will use this journal to vent my feelings and frustrations regarding this as well as to share with you some of my tests and daily or weekly struggles.  Perhaps others can relate and help me out here.  I pray every day to find a cause as to why I feel the way I do.. not necessarily a cure..but at least a way to get stable and energized again.
