Not Hell, Just Purgatory

Asthma has flared up so bad the last few months that I am now on four different meds. Arthritis keeps on messing me up in the walking category. Sometimes I can walk just fine and then suddenly a stabbing pain will hit me and I cannot help be cry out. Embarrassing! Stomach problems were so bad on a daily basis, I ended up having a nasty episode, similar to a gall bladder attack, or pancreatitis (it has long been removed, and previously had acute panc.) I was about ready to go to the ER, but I hate that! So, I rode it out and next day went to see my Primary (she's an Onc and really understands what's going on with me) so blood tests, Ultrasound ordered and referral to Gastro who has now ordered an MRCP. A few years ago I was told that my tummy problems are GERD, but I think something else is going on.

There's more but I am tired and want to go lie down.

So, though this has not entirely been hell, maybe it is just purgatory.

I have severe Oral Lichen Planus, and I am in a bad flare right now. Complicated by Thrush. A picture is worth a thousand words:

Just a few more


Wishing for Winter to be done with it!





More Christmas Spirit!

Feeling Sorry

My mouth is in bad shape right now. I have a flare up of the Oral Lichen Planus, plus Thrush, too.

It hurts to eat everything.

You would think I would lose some weight with this going on!!!

I'm feeling so sorry for myself.
