maintaining mental status
Wondering about how everyone here finds a way to keep their mental status in the positive direction. I'm in relatively good health following j-pouch surgery back in 2001 and surgery again last year for an intestinal obstruction but I seem to be developing, for a few years now, a lot of angst over my medical history, and the ongoing challenges that are part of life with j-pouch. I've been withdrawing more and more from the social scene. Feels like I'm going bi-polar. Usually the days start positive but before long I start drifting in the opposite direction. Not sure if this is a result of flying solo, being single and 40, a symptom of feeling defeat from UC, or frustrations with life being so much different that I had planned.....

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
