After I had my little princess, of course I had maternity leave, and a week of vacation, I was still so tired! Something wasn't right. I waited until she was 6 months old to have the gallbladder removed. Hoping it would help me regain all of the energy I had lost. It is amazing how cutting FOOD out of my diet helped prevent further attacks while I was pregnant. Even after the surgery, I was still so tired, it never went away! 

By now it is mid 2010 and I am making several Dr appts. Going in every 2-3 weeks to try to find out what is wrong with me. I mean, I know last year was rough. But, I am pretty tough. I don't crack under pressure. What I do is internalize stress. That stress exhibits in different ways, usually making me tired! After going to several appointments and getting nowhere, I decided to rethink how to handle this. The old Dr, did send me for a sleep study. Which came out okay. Sure, I have a touch of sleep apnea, but nothing that requires further treatment. By years end, I decided to change primary Dr.s and seriously consider quitting my job. 

How can I keep working and being a full time parent when I sleep nearly every minute that I am not at work? I had a teen at home and an infant! The teen was getting way too much unsupervised time, and the baby wasn't getting time with her momma like a baby needs. Yes, I am a single parent. Being so drained all the time, I am cheating my family, and cheating my coworkers. Which is not fair to anyone. I need to be at my best and at that point my best really sucked. 

Changing primary Dr.s was easy. I made an appt and saw the new one, and she decided not to change anything just yet. Fine, get to know me. LOL This is a pretty uneventful, and unremarkable year. Short post! Do you feel cheated? Okay, I will post 2 this week. I want to keep them separate so it is easy to see how long this all went on.

Am I Unworthy Of Love Because I Have COPD?

Another Update!

So, things are kinda crazy in my life right now. Most of you know about the move, I still haven't made... Too many loose ends to tie up before I can do that. Had a friend that needed a place to stay, she stole from me, and has tried to cause trouble for me. Oh well... Won't be helping her again. This old house is FULL of stuff from my parents and I have to find a way to get rid of all of the things left here, get the yard in order, and all presentable. Thing is I have zero help. So, I have to hire help to take care of everything. Good help is hard to find. 

Also, some of you might remember my trip from hell last summer... Well, I am going again. Call me crazy, I know. Haha. Just can't let my father go alone. Hoping to get over this massive chest cold before we leave on Friday. Remember, if you have COPD, you want to take an expectorant, NOT a suppressant. An expectorant will help thin the mucus in your lungs and you will be better able to cough it out. A suppressant, stops …
