First, I like to write that I missed everyone while away from the site. Second, I hope everyone had a blast during the holidays.
Now, I have been in the first part doing some advocating in action, for causes of diabetes, sickle cell foundation, the homeless, and for children all while I have been hurting with my lungs and the rib bones. I finally went to a different hospital for a diagnois as to why I’m hurting so bad to were I couldn’t get out of bed one morning.
That morning was Christmas. I was suppose to help deliver Xmas gifts to my stepdaughter and to her son. Than deliver some more gifts to the boy across the street who has celbal palsy. I couldn’t make it to either of them, I husband did the deliveries alone. When came back, we were suppose to go to my grandmother’s house for Xmas…couldn’t make it either. Instead a trip to the hospital.
Confirmed that I have Reactive Airway disease. This hurts like crazy, every time I breath it hurts. The only strength I have is to go to work overnight and than care for the old couple I care for 3x’s a week 5 hours a day. The pain has gotten worse to were its bothering the other ailment I have. I have a hernia in my esophegous. (Can’t spell it right) The hernia is getting larger and after 8 years of suffering, it’s time for the surgery.
Recently found out from the doctors that I became diabetic from having hypothyroidism. They tell me my hypothyroid attacked my pancreas. A nurological thing. There’s a name for this disease, cause all together I’m almost deaf got 20% hearing left in both ears. Had two corpal tunnal releases done on both hands. They say my hypothyroid did that too. Had gall bladder and tonsils removed. Those are natural.
Unfortunatly, my daughter has hypoparathyroid, hearing loss 60% one ear and 70% other, is anemic. I’m the only one out of 6 family members who has hypothyroid and hearing loss that is diabetic. So hopefully, by seeing the specialist he or she can get the measures done by preventing my daughter from becoming diabetic. That’s the next diagnois, the name of it and the measures to prevent other ailments from happening to my daughter and to myself.
Of course, spread the word to you’ all as well. All this is driving me crazy cause I get closer and closer to the missing link what’s been causing all this pain of endurment. For my birthday on Jan the 29th, I want to be pain free. But the surgery has me scared, to open my chest for a period of time to do the surgery. What about the healing part. With the diabetes.
I must have faith in this. To be able to breathe right, to move around with no problems, and to have that wedding of mines. I know I’ll make it. I have to. I have so much unfinished business here, I have to make it.
I’ll blog about the upcoming doctor appts and the diagnoises made. And the medicine to prevent or slow down future ailments. I promise this won’t slow me down, have to stay tough. Cause we are all tough, right.
