I see that I am not the only one having what I call an "UGH" time of it.
I got some really disturbing news at my family doctor appointment yesterday.
Acute kidney failure or disease. I don't know which because I read and heard two different things. I will go see a nephrologist and a dietician. It is stage 3 the GP said but I am going to leave it up to the nephrologist to say what is what because that is what she specializes in. It might be bad it might be not so bad as the GP implied. I am just waiting for them to call me with an appointment.
They say waiting is the hardest part but I have been here many times with other illnesses and other people. I can view this as the calm before the storm of info and my food plan changes forever along with whatever treatment there is. I can also view it as a blessing or a curse.
I am CHOOSING to accept it as a blessing. My dad was diagnosed far too late. He was in end stage kidney failure and believe me that is not how I want to go on my journey from the death of life to the life of death.
I confess I am in a bit of shock at the moment but I will pull though mentally in a week or two.
Between now and then I am on prednisone again so I am the Energizer Bunny on steriods. I didn't sleep much last night due to the med but my joints feel better.
tYou may have to scroll down a bit to see all of it. I tried to make it small but still big enough to see. The cruise ships clear out at night and then there are activities in Mallory Square in the evenings. The Gulf of Mexico is BEAUTIFUL. Atlantic Ocean not so much. Depression uhmm what's that thank God it is looking up.
I'm not sure what's causing it. I'm experiencing extreme fatigue. About a month ago I developed Vertigo. The Vertigo isn't as bad as when it first happened but I haven't felt right since. I've seen my Dr. and she referred me to a neurologist. I have an appointment with them on September 25th. That's the soonest they could get me in. I know this seems off topic for the Bipolar group...
