Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.


As I approach my doctor appointments, I am nervous. I have come a long way. I know my body is recovering….I have more energy….more stamina.

I have been experiencing some odd sensations in my abdomen….like knots along the length of (what remains) my intestines. It is definitely associated with stress. I will be discussing all with my colorectal specialist.

As much as I don’t want to admit it. I truly have a “strong” suspicion that I have an underlying condition that has not been diagnosed due to my unique circumstances. I have had some tremendous, completely unique diagnoses.

I have discussed some thoughts with my husband….he will help me in remembering to bring them up at the appointment. I also have a few notes.

Part of me doesn’t want to acknowledge…let alone ask about these few issues. However, experience yells at me to bring all of these up to doctor. Who knows?! Maybe it is just my body coming off all of the meds and recovery from all the trauma.

Thursday will be here soon….and with it will come my opportunity to thank my Doctors as well as to ask questions and discuss my concerns.
