*hugs all*

Just sharing the news from my GP visit - though I know most of you would probably be asleep or busy ...

Blood test results came back fairly good. A few oddities ...
The following content has been hidden - Reason : Talking about GP visit
My TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) was borderline to hypothyroidism by the T3 & T4 levels were good. The majority of my other tests were right on target but there were a couple that said that my body is not excreting fluid properly for some unknown reason. Upshot of all of that is that I have secondary Raynaud's phenomenon/syndrome. Not something I really wanted to hear because in reality there is no treatment and nothing I can do to stop it. The GP even took my BP which was quite high and now is expecting me to drop dead of hypertension though I tried to explain to him I was extremely stressed which would have raised my BP quite a bit and he was failing to realise how much that would have had to be taken into account in my place. Especially as he had basically just told me that I have this syndrome that means that for the rest of my life I'm going to have blue hands and feet everytime I get cold!! Thankfully he is just going to monitor it for a bit to work out what to do - the BP I mean.

Chest infection/cold situation didn't even get a look in even though I mentioned that I'm not sleeping because I'm spending so much damn time coughing etc. Oh well, perhaps when I see him next week we'll see if I'm able to breathe or whether I'm still barely functioning.

Shoulder situation was brought up and I'm trialling pain patches. I have my doubts as to whether they will stick as they are clear... Generally when they go for aesthetics (prettiness) they lose functionality - they just plain don't stick, and if they don't stick, you don't get the transfer of the drug into your bloodstream so there isn't a point. That's why the majority of nicotene-replacement patches don't work.
Sorry for talking about myself so much. I've chucked it behind a "hide" so you don't have to read it unless you want to. I know that the VPW screen real estate is a valuable thing and I don't want to waste your time with unimportant crap.

Hugs to all and I hope you are doing better than me. <3

Doikers 14-10-2010 01:23 PM

I've taken a Diazepam just to get it into my system , I'm numb BUT anxious about group later , I'll take another Diaz later if I feel no better but I have to eat something soon and am worried that the food will stop the meds working. I am all alone on the ward this morning I hope everyone is okay.

wolfos3d 14-10-2010 01:40 PM

Hey everyone. I haven't been here in a while. Hope you are all doing alright.

Doikers 14-10-2010 01:56 PM

Hey Jessica!!!!!!!!! *Hugs* How have you been?

wolfos3d 14-10-2010 02:04 PM

I've been okay. I haven't SI'd in quite some time. I'm getting bad urges to though. It's hard to resist, I have to try though. I lost a friend to suicide a week ago and I've been struggling a fair bit since.

How are you doing Mark? *huggles*

Doikers 14-10-2010 02:15 PM

Oh Jessica I'm so sorry to hear about your friend *Hugs*
It's good that you haven't S.I.'d in a while and I know how the urges get but you can fight through these urges and come out the other side stronger .

I'm anxious about my Groups to grow for psycho-social intervention group at 2 pm It's the second one of twelve the first was intense for me and it was just the getting to know each other bit they said it gets intense from this session , erp:S Sorry that sounded self involved .

wolfos3d 14-10-2010 02:20 PM

Eep. That does not sound fun. :( *hugs* Good luck. Maybe it won't be as bad as you think it will.

I will try my best to fight through. I have an appointment with my doctor next week for the first time in two months and it would be really bad for me give in at this point.

Doikers 14-10-2010 02:22 PM

Thankyou Jess :)
You can get to your Dr's apointment next week, You can make it . Good luck with your Dr's appointment , I know they can be nerve wracking *Hugs*

wolfos3d 14-10-2010 02:25 PM

Thanks. I better get to bed. I have class first thing in the morning. I'll drop in again when I can. *hug*

Doikers 14-10-2010 02:30 PM

shadowedsoul 14-10-2010 04:01 PM

SparkleKitten 14-10-2010 05:19 PM

*cuddles all* I SI'd last night :(

In uni now, feeling so poorly, my abdomen is so tense and sore. Grr.

And I'm tired, only got 3 hours sleep

I hope you're all okay x

frenchhorn 14-10-2010 05:30 PM

hi.
I'm sorry I've not been in for ages, depression has gone really bad and stuff. I'm doing bad, already missed so much uni.
*hugs all* and promise I will try be in here a bit more.

marshki 14-10-2010 05:54 PM

Hugs to all,
rubbish day at school. really freaked out a teacher with madness

PoisonedApple 14-10-2010 05:59 PM

*hugs everyone*
*tackles jess and oliver as I haven't seen them in ages*

I didn't realize how much my ocd-ness impacts my depression level until i managed to get my desk totally cleared off (only to cover it in boxes of files again)... I established that no matter what, at the end of the day my desk needs to be clean and organized so when I come in in the mornings it doesn't make me feel lethargic, guilty and depressed. How pathetic is it that the state of my desk has that big of an impact on me? *shakes head*
I've almost got all my work caught up (though I didn't participate in planning bosses day nor will I be helping put it on today ~guilt pangs but I'll get over it, they prefer my office to be functional to me throwing them a party with the rest of the staff anyhow~) I figure by this time next week I'll have everything set and start sending out more old crap to archives. *nods*
I had more to update on (as I don't usually fill people in but I'm feeling capable today) but I have to go cover the front desk so maybe more to come later...

*huggles everyone*
i think whoever invented playdough should get a medal <3

Doikers 14-10-2010 06:06 PM

*Hugs Sarah*

*Hugs Crimson*

*Huge Hugs for Oliver as I haven't chatted for a while*

*Hugs Marshki*

*Hugs Jill*

My "Group for Psycho-social interventions" was VERY VERY intense and nerve wracking , some more confident people in the group did most of the talking and I just say in my seat and hoped that I woulden't have to speak in front of people , I DON'T do groups and there was 15 of us and 2 staff , In the halftime break I even had to hide in the toilet and take a 3rd Diaz of the day :( I was seriously considering going into the toilet and cutting with my "emergency tool" :S Sorry

MammaMia 14-10-2010 06:07 PM

*hugs everyone lots*

Crimson, that's not pathetic sweetheart. I think it helps anyone to come into work with a clean desk and stuffs. Let alone those who have OCD and that. It's not pathetic, I promise you *cuddles*

Nicole, I quite agree, it's amazing stuff.

Jill, why you shaking? *hugs*

Oliver, I'm sorry you're struggling so much right now. *offers hugs*

Mark, hope your group went/is going okay and not too intense for you *hugs* EDIT: I'm sorry it was so intense Mark :( *hugs again*

Kahlia, sorry to hear about that *cuddles lots*

Sarah, I'm sorry you're in so much pain.

I miss April :( Hope her training is going well.
