Just a quick update

My mom got out of the hospital and was able to go to the wedding in VT that she had been hoping to get too. I was alone for 2 days and that was a bit unnerving for me, but I made it.

My mom is at the hospital getting chemo right now, then she will come home and the nurse will hook her up for 3 days.

I start taking all those antibiotics tomorrow to treat the H. Pylori and if I can handle them I will be on them for 14 days. I am not sure how much I will be online. It will depend on how sick they make me. Lets hope I don't get sick at all. That would be nice for a change.

I am still concerned about how my hands turn purple while they are at my sides or while I am typing.

My next step if I can get through all the pills is to see a gastro doc to make sure it is gone and talk about my other gastro issues.

I have been living on rice and bread for about a week and I am getting tired of both, but I was so sick of the fruit I was eating for months that I finally cut back on that.

I have been so tired, which is why I have not been writing in my blog a lot. I sleep between 12-16 hours a day. Even then I do not feel rested. I am really hoping these pills take care of some of what is going on with me. I want a life. I am so bored.

I was looking out the window yesterday and was watching this guy doing his garden and it pissed me off because I want to be outside and not feel like crap all the time. I am mad that I have been this sick this long and any results I have got is from me looking crap up and then having the doctors check. I should not have to do this myself. They are doctors and I am not.

Anyway keep me in your thoughts and hope I get threw my 8 pills a day.

I am answering your question, "when u had the ulcer did you get mild anxiety and mild breathlessness with fast heart after eating some foods? lasts 30-60 mins", here are so I have more room to discuss my issues during my ulcer.

I only had a anxiety and breathlessness the last two days before my ulcer opened up to my abdomen.
Up to Two Weeks Prior, I had nausea and vomiting nearly anytime I ate.
Up to two months Prior, I had acid reflux and loss of appetite. I slowly became dehydrated. My doc thinks my dehydration led to my heart rate increase, 100-110+ish. another symptom of dehydration was my urine was intermittently dark.
I think maybe I didn't have the anxiety like you, because I'm normally depress, which I take medication.
