MDJunction to me

peasha"This has been one of the most supportive places I have ever been. I found MDJ by mistaking looking for drs to help me with my many health issues and since that day over a year ago I have found a tight nit little family that keeps me going when the times are tough and offers me a place of retreat to share my successes and failures with others. I get to see the humor and seriousness of what I experience as well as the resources to learn about my health conditions. Thanks MDJ" (peasha)

Ten Weeks and Counting

Nov 13 2010
It's been a slow journey, but I am finally getting better!  I was walking on the treadmill at the  gym the other day, thinking that it was not as hard as I thought it would be, when I realized it was the 10-week anniversary of my surgery.  The bad headaches are gone, and my energy is slowly returning (most days).  I'm not done, though:  a bone density test, an MRI, blood work, and a cortisol stress test, along with visits to my neurosurgeon and endocrinologist are all on the calendar within the next month.  I just want to be done, and healthy.  I am so tired of this endocrine roller coaster.  And, I want to lose this 15 pounds I put on during my recovery so I can wear my clothes again.  I know, I should be glad that the surgery is done; I am, and I feel truly blessed that I was placed into competent hands.  But sometimes I get frustrated that I have had to go through all of this.  I know many people suffer much more than I have, and I am grateful that my condition is under control for the time being.
