Update on how things have been for me lately.

Monday, September 12, 2011

So, I haven't blogged on here in a while. Sorry to my Spark Friends for keeping you all out of the loop and uninformed about my goings on's lately. I'll start on a good note and mention how my PCOS still seems to be under great control with the meds I'm on for it. Thank you God! emoticon
My boyfriend and I are doing SO great and he just started a new job a few weeks ago making even more money. He's also now in a field of work that interests him a little more. So he seems to be happier for sure. Our little cat Sophie is doing great as well. She's the most rambunctious, sweet, beautiful and spoiled kitty I know. lol. I'll post a couple picture's of her below:

I also have another cat named Tigger whom I've had since I was a teenager at my Moms house and so when I moved out he stayed because I felt it was better for him since he was used to that place for so long already. I miss him so much all of the time. Here's a couple picture's of him as well:

They're my babies and I love them to death with all of my heart. emoticon

Now on to some not so pleasant news. A couple of months ago I started experiencing sharp burning pains in my stomach as well as frequent headaches, extreme fatigue, nausea and another bathroom symptom I won't describe. lol. Although I do think the bathroom symptom has to do with the over the counter meds I'm taking to help keep the acid down in my stomach. I went to Patient First a couple of weeks ago because it hurt so bad and they did some blood work and told me I'm anemic and we discussed how I think the pain in my stomach is caused by a stomach ulcer. The Dr. said she couldn't tell me because she's not a gastro Dr., so now I still have 2 more weeks before I can get in to see him. I hope it's a quick and easy visit. I just want them to tell me what's wrong so I can start the correct treatment so I'm not so miserable anymore. I am taking a vitamin with iron in it now and am also eating more iron rich foods to help with my anemia. I'm pretty sure that with the stomach pains I'm having and the fact that my bought of anemia started along with it that I have a bleeding stomach ulcer and I'm losing iron from losing so much blood internally.
Wish me luck that this all ends easily and soon.
Thanks everyone for your support and well wishes and advice. I love all of my Spark friends. Y'all are so great! Thanks again!

    Hi Ash, I miss you blogs, so much that I decided to read an old one, again. emoticon
    It was interesting to read this and to know how far you have come and the things that have changed.

    Any chance you might write a new blog for me to visit? emoticon

    Love, Mom

    P.S. Loved walking together, today and planning healthy things.

    The cats are beautiful. I am sure Tigger did miss you when you moved to your new home, but at least you have Sophie with you.
    So sorry to hear of your health problems. I do hope and pray that it is resolved quickly, so you can feel better and back to your perky self.

    You'll be in my thoughts for sure! Please keep us posted on what happens when you visit the doctor. I hope you feel better soon. I know what it's like when you don't feel like yourself and you don't know why. It's an awful feeling, to feel that you have no control over your own body. emoticon emoticon Feel better soon Ashley!!

    Sorry to hear about your stomach ills. I love your cats! I have an anerican shorthair black & white spotted. She is 20 years young and just as spry as when I got her.

    I love how upbeat you are, despite the medical issues.
    Keep concentrating on the positive and may the next two weeks, speed by.
    You know I love my grandkittys, even when Sophie bites my elbow. lol
