I am one sick puppy.
And as much as I wish that I meant that in a cool way…frankly, it’s just the opposite. Having celiac disease so does not make me feel cool.
I simply cannot put a good stretch of health together and it’s finally getting the best of me.
Yesterday was a perfect example of my recent struggles.
– Up at 3am because I couldn’t sleep.
– Worked until 8am (yes…I’m fortunate enough to work both for myself and from home…quite the luxury for a celiac.)
– Slept from 8 to 11.
– Slept again from 3:30 to 5.
– In bed at 7:30.
And I would’ve fallen right asleep but I got caught up watching “Point Break” for the 73rd time. It’s one of those bad movies that somehow draws me in every time I come across it. “I AM AN FBI AGENT.” If you haven’t seen it, the movie clip to the right pretty much sums it up for most people.
Quite the productive day, don’t you think??
I feel like I’ve taken a giant leap backwards and I’m just not healing from my celiac disease.
So here’s the deal. Almost six years after my initial diagnosis, I’m finally going back to my GI on Thursday to see what the hell is going on.
I’m going to ask for blood work and another endoscopy.
But this is where I could really use your help. I can’t be the only one in these shoes.
What else should I be asking about? What questions or what other tests should I discuss with my doctor?
Many thanks in advance.
