Health Journey 2

Standard

Doctor visit went well. She saw my concern. My situation is a wasting away disease with no cure but to address the sickness that is causing it.

These pics are a couple years apart but you can see my concern. This size is not me.

I am getting a chest xray, liver screen, kidney screen, cardiac screen, thyroid screen and tons of bloodwork. 9 vials. If all this comes back inconclusive then we will treat the Rheumatoid Arthritis or and Lupus.

So now we wait.

Health Journey

Standard

Today is a big day. Now that school is over and I can focus on me, this is day one of figuring out why I am malnourished and “anorexic” as the doctors say.

I noticed a major change in weight last year around March 2021. By June 2021 I was 96 pounds. In August, I had to buy size 0 pants-even had a size girls 16 that fit. Size hangs off me.

I have always been a solid size 6. Size 4 was my ideal, but I had hips and booty. Not anymore.

This was September 2021. Short, but thick hair. I could wear it down.

It is getting thicker, but still breaking and I have not cut my hair at all…so the thinning and length is all on its own. Weight loss, hair loss, and so much more means time to do some tests.

Pray for answers around 2pm today or at least a step in the right direction.
