Difficult Times

It feels like a long time since I sat here and wrote a blog post and it's very unlike me to neglect the one thing I love to do, but the truth is, I've been rather poorly.  It started on Monday morning when once more I experienced an epileptic seizure, leaving me disorientated for the rest of the day.  I was overwhelmed by confusion until Tuesday afternoon when I started to feel a little better and was able to spend some time with Amy.  I have an appointment to see a private consultant next Friday which I hope will help, but the doctor and I are almost sure it is hormone related.  Not to sound too personal, the funny turns are happening a few days after my period and that has been the case for the past six months.  There are various options including hormone treatment but I'll wait and see what the consultant has to say next week.  In the meantime, bear with me, I'm still here but am limiting my time on the computer.  Your support is, as always, appreciated.

  3. ((Hugs)) It seems that once we're out of our teens, everything is hormone related! Wish you all the luck in the world for next week. Take it easy and look after yourself!

  8. You have my full support and my thoughts are with you. I suffered from something hormone related and found St. John's Wort really helped.

  10. When you talk to your doctor ask about Bio-Identical Hormones. I'm not talking about the synthetic Premarin(made from horses urine!) or Prempro, but hormones that are the exact chemical makeup as your body makes. A compounding pharmacy will make them just for you and your needs. Request a saliva test...not a blood test to determine where you are and what you need. I just went through all of this and here in the USA Bio-Identical hormones are just becoming popular...the rest of the world seems to be way ahead of us. Their is a difference... http://www.womentowomen.com/bioidentical-hrt/bioidenticalhormones.aspx

    check it out for yourself..good luck!

    I am not a DR....I just know I have done my homework and researched and this works for me. I would be happy to talk more if you like

  11. Poor you, that sounds horrible, hope they manage to sort it out for you next week :)

  12. But of course this is related to your cycle. ALL things are related to one another - if the DR doesn't recognize this find a new one. And best wishes for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

    Being a woman is complicated but wonderful, take care.

  13. I hope you and your doctor get this sorted out soon. It sounds like some sort of hormone treatment is needed. I don't know enough about it to advice you, though. Good luck, lots of hugs!

  14. Here's hoping you get it sorted, smart-ish and you're back to full-on blogging swiftly xxx

  15. Sounds like the good docs are onto it pretty sharpish. Let's hope they can get it all sorted out ASAP and you can get back to blogging! Sending all best wishes.

  18. Big hugs, CJ. I really hope this gets sorted out for you. Hormones are horrid...you can do without them. xxx

  19. Oh, dear! This is not "a good thing." Not for you; not for your family. I do hope you can get it all sorted out, promptly.

    Gentle hugs from an old bear (whose hormones are, nonetheless, OK). Big licks from Her Ladyship, Miss Sadie (who, having had surgery, has no hormones).

    Blessings in your "adversity." (If you think it would help, pick up a copy of my "adversity" bit in the sidebar of my blog.)

  20. Sorry to hear that you've been unwell, Kathryn. It does sound as if it could be hormone related. Really hope it gets sorted soon.

    Healing thoughts and hugs to you.

  22. Sorry to hear it. I dislike very much being down and out, especially since I have been so for this whole week as well.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  23. Long ago, I had a dear friend who discovered she had epilepsy, so I can understand a little about what it's all about. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you and your doctors try to figure out the best way to proceed.

  30. Glad you came around without any damage. Good luck and health to you and I hope ya'll find the correct diagnosis and treatment at your doctor's visit. It wouldn't hurt given Amy's age and your closeness to explain what's going on. No need to give her any worries. Thinking positive thoughts and sending them your way.
    Do you feel better? Relax and let them in they are ever present around you.
