darn pain

Mar 08, 2010 - 2 comments

I don't know what the pain on the RUQ is . i intend to  have a party for the pain too, when i throw one for my thyroid.  I am sick of being sick.  the doctors even notice that i'm not crazy that when something is wrong, something is usually wrong. so, i'm hoping for the pain to be nothing.  GGT shows it's not the liver. could it be kidney?  isn't there where the kidney is located?  who knows?  i'm no damn doctor.  hell, even they are clueless to be honest.  graves disease is a type of auto immune disease, i wonder if it would mess up everything?  could it be?  just plain ole old age????

looking back it's been over a year since i've been on this site.  still i am battling the thyroid from hell.  tsh is basically undetectable.  t4, t3 still to high.  seems that back in dec.08/ jan 09 the endo should have zapped my thyroid but didn't. been seeing great endo in durham now, things are going to be better.   mar 18th, appt with surgeons to take out the evil thyroid.  enough is enough. two years of fighting.  three tablets of ptu three times a day, proprananol three to four times a day.  two radiations and a thyroid stuck in over drive.  sing to the tune of ... on the first day of christmas ....  :)

ok, so i have been in my own little world with my own little freaky thyroid issues. graves, hashi's pick one. last 2 weeks felt crappy, upper abdom pain, migraine, back hurts, no appetite, vomiting.you get the deal. go to er, er dr. says.. you have a migraine, and hepatitis and pancreatitis??? huhh? i don't and never have done drugs..he basically accuses me of being an alcoholic...i don't drink either. wow, do i live a boring life. so go to my dr. who confirms enzymes from the liver are up there. have ultrasound, it shows the common bile duct dilated with no obstructions radiologist recommends mrcp test.. my gp thinks it's from the tapazole. call the endo, endo says to stop the tapazole keep on the inderal and have liver levels checked in two weeks. meanwhile back at the bat cave i have now had a MRCP. whatever, another fancy name for mri of the liver, etc. and give us more money! now i sit on a saturday. waiting for monday to see what my future holds. i'm scared, and in pain. my thyroid emotions are wide open and i am cruising in unchartered waters. there is no hope. however, on the positive side the VA has given me compensation for a service connected injury, and now at least my health care will be in Durham who knows- might even get some of those blue devils to work on my brokedown ol' body. want to scream yelll, and cry...all at the same time.

yesterday,  endo called finally after tests results were in on monday, decided to tell me to take one 10 mg tapazole 2 times a day, informed nurse that i already was, and it was pretty bad when i can determine my dosage, before i can get a phone call returnedi found an ex son in law that hasn't pbaid child support in over a year, has gone from a hero as a marine, to a criminal on probation for using another person's checking account, and there were 3 more pending warrants for arrest. this morning i got up dragged myself to the courtroom, 2nd row and low and behold, here he comes chains and all!!!! well, my daughter didn't believe he was there because he has been bouncing from CA, AZ, NV, ND, and NC. so silly me, not caring about court rules anymore, seeing as I no longer work in that feild, go in with a cellphone and proceed to take a video, and pictures of him standing before the judge for his first appearance. Now, the judge,goes on with my ex son in law's stuff, then after he finishes, asks the baliff to take my phone, then tells me that if i show him how to delete the photo i can have my phone back, i say ok and step in front of the bar and begin to show him. then the judge calls me to the bench....ohohhhh. he pats my arm and states he's not upset with me but that they have a  rule about cellphones. then he askes why i took the photo's. i explain that this bozo has not paid child support since feb. of 08, and that the one payment my daughter received was from his girlfriends check and it bounced, my daughter had to pay it off to the bank, and this is court ordered. the court has made no effort to look for him, while he has been bouncing from place to place hiding, nor enforce this order, and after all we have done to find him, my daughter being in the service, really didn't believe he was arrested, so i was going to send her a photo. judge says, ok, i walk out, with photo's still on cellphone. if they can have a camera crew video taping a high profile case, what the hell's the difference? bad thing is i used to work in that same courtroom, everyday, and i know the rules. funny how, when you've gotten so irritated with the judicial system, you break the rules. i mean why not? it's not like the criminals are following the rules, the judges, cops,lawyers, district attorney's do not follow the rules, why should i? i have personal seen cases discussed, and sentence determined in the back office of the courtroom. i know cause i was there, so why not take pictures? why not plaster there faces on my cellphone. they do it in the media. i know if they didn't have rules there would be thousands of cellphone cameras, clicking away, but seriously. how come oj had camera's in court, but not some low life con man peace of ****????????????????????????????????? guess my levels are still out of whack.
