Its been a while since I've logged on.
I must say, this year has been one hell of a roller coaster, for myself and all of us. I hope the holidays aren't causing any flare ups.
I am very scare at the moment. 3 of my doctors are concerned I have pulminary hypertention... I just turned 22, and I was diagnosed with MCTD right after my 21st birthday. Which means if I do have hypertention then I have at most 4 years to live.. Im terrified right now. I have an appointment with the cardiologist at 1pm today, and will hopefully find some answers. Although, I kind of don't want to know.
I don't understand how I was fine for 20 years, and then all of a sudden not. Then, have my disease progress so much in 1 year. I'm just baffeld. I don't know what to think right now. I am very scared. I've been trying to convince myself not to worry yet since I don't have any test done yet, but my emotions are getting in the way.
Please keep me in your heart and thoughts.
Just checking in here, been off for a long time-- basically, I mostly use a different computer, which remembers the password for this site, but I cannot remember it myself, and thus cannot use my primary computer.Muscle and joint pain, and fatigue, was worse over the summer, and I did have to scale back swimming and body boarding in September. I didn't do anything about it because I was too...
I had another major computer issue and had to have some repairs, then, I found I could not get on the site. I have finally figured out how to get back on. I had to change my password repeatedly. Sometimes I just feel so old, like I would not have these issues if I were younger and had a younger brain! Anyway, my stress level is nuts right now, but I keep hoping my life will level out.I went back...
