Health update- I go for a checkup Monday with the GI Doctor. I am feeling much better. I did have another pain block done on my back. They usually last about 8-10 months, but this last one only lasted a couple months. Not sure why, hopefully this one will take.

My husband got me these amazing wind spinners! They are my new favorite thing.
The doctor has put me on some new meds, so back to being sleepy all the time. After talking with them and my boss we’ve decided to start an altered schedule for the next 2 weeks. So only working 4 hours a day and a substitute coming in at lunch. I’m still fine tuning some patterns and getting ready for the new design wall that my wonderful husband is making for me. Everyone have a wonderful week.
A bit of a rocky week, but starting to see light at the tunnel.
I wanted to share something with y’all. I’ve had somewhat of a hard time lately. But the last couple weeks has been more than normal. I have been increasingly tired, overall just not feeling well, and my spirit has been low. I usually consider myself a very positive person, but I just couldn’t seem to shake it. I knew it wasn’t COVID, I have been tested regularly because of my job and allergy issues. I started having a pressure in my chest sometime last week. I kept blowing it off as probably a new issue with my allergies. Well Sunday evening the pressure became more of pain. I talked myself out of going to the doctor until Monday morning, needless to say I ended up in the ER. They ran numerous test on me and couldn’t find anything outside of my blood pressure being high (not normal for me).Once I leveled off they let me go home with the understanding I would go the my regular doctor to get a referral for a cardiologist.
I went in today and set up the appointment, but my doctor wanted to do one more test before sending me on my way. It turns out I have been diagnosed with H. pylori bacteria in my stomach. This is a treatable issue. I looked it up as soon as I got home, it’s an interesting read. They think about 50% of people have been exposed. The doctor has warned me that the medication may make me feel a bit worse with some unpleasant side affects before getting better. I have an appointment with a cardiologist tomorrow and I’m waiting on an appointment with a GI doctor.
Additional note on H. pylori- I had probably been exposed to contaminated food according to my doctor. With my smell and taste buds being on the fritz because of my allergies it would be hard for me to tell. I’m pretty sure it was a lunch because no one else in my family is showing signs.
What it comes down to- There has been some major mind games I’ve been dealing with. I thought I has having a heart attack. I also thought I was over reacting. The battle was real. I am still feeling uncomfortable, but now that I have seen a doctor it all makes since.
Sorry for the long read, but I wanted to share with you. Everyone please take care of yourselves and pay attention to the warning signs.
Mr. and Mrs. Clause. Happy Birthday Jaxon!!
