[IP] Gastro Flare Up - Fear - Whine
I just needed to vent about gastroproesis. I know there are some of you
that probably have it worst than me and I am sorry for that. I just got
hit real hard with it. It started Thursday and just progressively got
worse. This morning I woke up with a bs of 41, an hour later ( after
taking 45 grams of carbo - sprite ) I was 246 and then an hour later I
was 66. I called my husband and he came home from work. I was just
freaking that nothing would stay down. I didn't understand the bs down
up down. I've spend more time the last few days on the toilet than
anywhere else. I have no appetite, I get hungry, eat and there it
goes. Not even my fave, chicken noodle soup was staying down. :-( We
called the doctor and I got back on cisipride. Steve made me breakfast
/ lunch and that partially stayed down. I've only visited the toilet
five times today, so it's a bit better. It scares me because I've heard
/ read that some people end up in the hospital for a month on IV just ot
have calories in them. I think it scares me too just for the shear fact
that diabetes is rearing it's ugly head and I get scared, what's next.
I am tired of the pain and being a couch potato. Then I feel guilty
because I don't have the energy to exercise. Arg, the stuff I do to
myself in my head.
Anyway, thanks for listening. On the plus sign, I have lost 8 pounds!
:-) One must always look for some positive... Diets don't work for me
but gastro does!
