Back to the Drs Tuesday

Its been a little while since i blogged and i needed a little break,  anyway on Tuesday next week i am making a visit the see the Dr, my own Gp who has returned to work himself after being ILL .. I hope it wasn’t me who made him poorly,  

i have a medical background in the fact i have PCOS and IBS-C which is on a previous post.. the last time i went to see the dr was about my IBS-C and the result was a blood test and took me of all my meds,  including my anti-sugar tablet which helps the PCOS,, he said i didn’t need it as my sugar levels where fine..and He took me off all my IBS meds and gave me a basic drink to help.. With advice to go on a low sugar and Hi Fiber diet,  

well the first slice of brown bread that passed my lips left in in agony,  not just bloating but a Physical pain like a knife being stuck in the stomach,  brown pasta had the same affect, so i guess that Brown Hi fiber bread is NO GOOD, not the low sugar seems ok i don’t have sugar in my tea/coffee or on my cereal, yes i may have biscuits but if i stop EVERYTHING I LIKE I WILL BE GRUMPY. CROSS, FEDUP..  but what i did find help when i was accidentally put of a Gluten free,  i was NOT BLOATED AT ALL AND GOING TO THE LOO DAILY but it does have a high sugar content..

 

I really don’t know what to do and feel a little lost

What a Week

As you may have read on a  previous Blog I suffer with IBS-D for past 6 years or longer and PCOS for the past 13 years, well diagnosed but had it since Puberty,,  Anyway I had to have a routine medicine appointment at the Drs surgery on Tuesday last week just to make sure i am on the right meds for my conditions….

My Normal Dr is off on long term illness so i had to see one of the others, this is not a problem to me as they are all great at my practice but their treatments are all different for the same conditions.. This time my Dr blew me away… He has stopped my anti sugar tablets that i have been on for the past 13 years well on and off as they stop them now and again but now i have had a Hysterectomy some say i need them some say i don’t as they are normally given to people who are trying to conceive as it can help overweight women to loose weight..  

I was also on a drink to help me go to the loo (IBS-D)  but this was hit and miss as one dr would say take every day and another would say take only when you feel pain, so as i don’t get much pain i was not taking the drink.. 

Tuesday became a new day to the rest of my life I think… like i said the anti-sugar tablets known as metformin and my drink meds Fybogel with mebeverine has been stopped and changed to the normal Fybogel that i must take 2 times a day (breakfast and dinner) after the meals… 

But the biggest change is 

Image   Yep No Gluten Diet,  Yep panic kinda set in as i do like bread, cereals and chocolate. But i better do it,  i am not a coeliac but the Dr feels that i may be intollerant to the the Gluten and its not helping my guts or bowels..  i did find this on a web site so please do take a read   http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-7482/10-signs-youre-gluten-intolerant.html  

So far things have been ok with no gluten but the biggest thing is that Gluten Free Products have double the sugar and more calories than normal foods, and more expensive too, but i have to do it and so far i my tummy has less bloating and i seem to have more energy about me, then again i have not had any cravings for anything that i should not be having.. watch this space…..

Tired

As the Title says I am Tired, Shattered, exhausted..  its been like this on and off for a while now..  but not sure why,  yep i am a single mum who gets stressed with the day to day life of balancing things , like any parents do..  yes i have my little job, so its not over work that’s tiring me out..  But there are a couple of things it could be,  the first one is low iron,  or low iron body stores as the diets here are not too green and full of Iron, I have a far bit of veg, but i have 2 children who wont eat it and its wasting money as i can’t eat a whole cabbage ect.. or it goes off before i can use it all..

 

But back in the Beginning of 2011 i and a Hysterectomy (ovaries left in) so it could be onset of menopause and considering my family history most of the females had early onset menopause or hysterectomies it could be that… the only real way of knowing is a blood test,  but its not just tiredness,,  I am now having trouble sleeping but also over tired that i could drop of any moment even now i could sleep, eyes are sore and running too.. yes struggle to get off to sleep, but once asleep i could stay asleep for hours and find it hard to get up at the call of the Alarm.. 

Another thing is my memory is bag, getting forgetfull or even not hearing conversations as brain has switched off..

I do have a visit to the the Dr on Monday next week so i will see what he says and get a test done, I know IBS-C does not help neither does my PCOS but we are dealing with those.. so fingers crossed it’s something and nothing.. 

Anyway thanks for reading but that’s how i feel today..  

Why Do I Blog

Image  

I was reading my friend Shauns blog http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/why-do-we-blog and a very interesting piece on Why do we blog? go take a look..

But i decided to write a piece on why i blog.. 

Now I started blogging back in March 2009 over on blogger cause I saw a few friends of mine at started a blog and they said that it would be good fun,  Things in my life were not brilliant to say the least, cracks began to show in my relationship with my childrens father.. so when i started to blog it was more of an escape than an account of my life.. it would be one blog here and another one a few weeks later, i did have a 2.5 year old baby at the time .. but everything n my relationship was going wrong, and i found myself trying to change countless time for a man who really did not appreciate anything any more, and more and more i was pushed away, not into the arms of another man, but i was told to go to the gym, loose weight and he may find me better,, but in reality we had drifted apart.. so i  would blog to escape. the sadness in my world.. I tried to tell him things were not working but he never would listen,  that was to come last year when he wanted out this time, and i agreed.. Anyway,, I blogged probably pretty much everyday 

I also have a son who i mentioned before had needed heart surgery as a baby and as he grew things were starting to show he needed help educationally. which was something else i had to fight for the Support for my sons education,  then, finding out i was infertile was a biggie for me when my eldest was 5, ,no more children without IVF you have PCOS and that did feel like my world was over,  ok took a big blow, but something happened some 6 years later and i was expecting my youngest.. pretty sad really that me and the kids dad are not together,  anyway I blogged and blogged and it helped release the frustrations i had within me.. my body was cracking although never really had full blown depression but got low, then the panic attacks kicked it..

In a way,  me blogging in the past has kinda helped me to offload ,, not that many people read my blog as it was a time for trolls too, bullies that would upset you for their own happiness.. So i blogged for me, and not for readers, it did get personal it got nasty at times my blog,  but i felt better when i had done it, 

 

But today is a different blog,  I have moved on to wordpress for a new me i suppose to the old moaning me,, but a new way forward me,  I mean I have been me all along just at different phases or stages in my life.. I blog as i enjoy it,  its not always about escaping from the real world as my world is a better place now, although some stuff is hard to get through but i do,, I blog for the pleasure of blogging. partly escape. and partly cause i am totally crazy and need to write stuff of utter rubbish, but who cares,  someone will read it.. even if they don’t like it..  But if you do  thanks for stopping by
