Can't Wait To Kick 2018 To The Curb!

Saturday, December 29, 2018

I just can't wait for this horrible year to be over! The first part of the year I was in and out of the hospital 5 times each a 4 day/night long stay, I had 3 lithotripsies to break up infected kidney stones. I was so sick and in pain. this went on for 3 1/2 months! Then in September I developed a sinus infection that just go away found out in this month I had a cyst taking up most of my left maxillary sinus which was creating horrendous pressure making the sinus pain so much worse than it was! I suffered through 31/2 months of very severe pain that was in the OMG I am going to die category! My cyst ruptured and since then I have been ok, just the occasional mild headache here and there! I have come to wonder if my Dr. has my best interests at heart anymore as she claims that she does. So 2018 was the year of the Infection and Severe Physical Pain in my world!

I am praying that 2019 is going to be so much different! I am working with Dieticians for my Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease to come up with healthy eating plans with my Gastroparesis. I have began to go to a 10 week long Pulmonary Rehab to learn how to slow my COPD progression. I have quit smoking! I have made my way back to God and released the anger towards him with the tragedies that have plagued my life. I have lost weight. I am turning my life around for the better. Even though I have these struggles there is still the young girl that refuses to give up!

I am still making goals for the year ahead on top of the ones I have blogged about earlier.
