Hello happy friends!
This may be a bit long winded... If you just want to see the stitching....scroll down :)
I went to see the gastrologist yesterday to see if he can help me figure out what's happening to me. Regarding the severe bloating I have and the constant sickness from eating. I will let you all know now I was so upset after that appointment I was on the verge of ending it all. It was only Han talking to me that knocked sense into me and made me realise it's not the answer.
The doctor did not listen to me, he did not want to know anything about my symptoms...Han and I tried to explain what I had been going though and well he just kept changing the subject. There is nothing worse that a doctor not listening to you.... I live in my body, I know what has been happening to me!! He did agree to test me for coeliac disease, with a blood test. He wanted to send me back to the dieticians to try foods... They did try me on things, nothing worked! They could not help me and sent me to him!! He did not listen nor believe anything I was saying to him... I got increasingly frustrated and in the end after he was shouting at me I burst into tears. I was in my wheelchair in his office so felt really trapped... I told Han to get me out of his office quickly as I did not want to stay, how dare he upset me. Han took me out of the office and I was so upset I was hyperventilating, eventually I calmed down. The blood person came and took blood off me, so at least that test was done!
Moving forward I have no idea what is going to happen now.. I just feel so alone and feel the doctors are passing me from one place to another. Someone needs to help me, I am struggling every day to cope with what is happening to me. I cannot eat a full meal, the types of foods I eat is small as a lot of food upsets my stomach and makes me sick. It was suggested I try going totally gluten free and dairy/lactose free to see if it helps my symptoms. I am already meat free as I don't eat meat, egg free and onion free... Fish is no good either, just makes me have stomach cramps and really ill.... Tofu is awful and to be honest restricting my diet more frightens me.
So I will be all of these..
It's going to be tough. Han has said she will help me, we need to find out if making these changes helps me and enables me to eat food.
We come up with a list of ok foods.... That I know I will eat...
All salad items
That's basiaclly it!! Does not seem a lot but will be with the vegetables... So if you have any food recipie suggestions, please please leave a comment. If it's not on that list I cannot eat it!
Enough of that stressful stuff!!
Onto the stitching!!
My stitching is pretty much the only thing, seriously the only thing keeping me sane right now. I have managed to stitch more on Gathering Honey....
Here is where I was on my last post...
Here is where I am ...
The end is in sight!! Once I finish the flowers in that corner it's onto the bees... Eeeeeeek!!
So that's what I have been up to!
I know some of you are just here to look at what crafts I get up to... Thank you for popping in :). My blog is a sounding board for me to use, and for me to make sense of things that happen in my life too. I appreciate that some don't want to know how I am health wise, that's ok too... I am me, and I hope you pop in just because you like to, that's great if you do because I like you visiting me!
Until I next pop in.... Keep smiling :)
