I can’t believe it’s been a year!

I loved to blog but I seem to always find things to distract me for months on end, apparently.
This time it wasn’t much fun. I have been very ill off and on since last January. Something attacked my system and I have never felt 100% since.  It has changed me and now I never have the energy to do much of anything. I am always nauseous and have become intolerant to just about anything a person can eat. I am lactose, fructose and gluten intolerant. I have a vit B12 deficiency and now the Drs think that I have a condition called Eosinophilic Esophagitis .I have spent the last few months choking on almost everything I eat. On top of that I had asthma all summer worse than I have ever had it. I have seen numerous Doctors and have had numerous tests!
The Drs are still studying me but, so far there has been no fix for the way I feel. I am waiting for biopsies to come back right now and I am on edge about that.  I realize a person doesn’t know what they had before they lose it. I have had Fibromyalgia (or so the Dr says) for over 20 years.I have been somewhat limited as far as activity and having enough energy. But I am so much worse now. I am just wishing this year would go away and I could start all over.
We were planning on a cruise in April but had to postpone it. I would never have dreamt that I would still be ill this long and not been able to take a trip this year.
My other half has worked so hard and needs a vacation badly. I told him that he may have to go by himself Sad smile .
Well, I really posted a downer here…didn’t I ?  SO sorry…I am praying that I am going to see some healing and have a better upcoming year and would welcome your prayers as well!!
Thank goodness for Facebook and Farmville2…it helps keep my mind busy if nothing else!

so sorry you have been ill....when a fellow blogger spends time away those of us in blogland always hope it is just because they wanted a break (like I just did), and hope it isn't anything more serious. It's okay to post downers too, if it makes you feel better to get it out. Take care!

thank you Joyce!!! It does make me feel good sometimes to just get the words out....sometimes it's therapeutic.
And I have a new computer and discovered Windows Live Writer..I can just open it on my desktop and write a new blog entry and publish it from there...makes it so easy!!
