(((oneday))) I am sorry to hear that you are feeling like this. I am sure that this sinus infection is just taking its toll on you and wearing you out. It's no wonder you feel yucky. I hope with this upcoming operation that it will help you and you can not have to worry about constantly being sick. Sinus infections are no fun and bring on so many other symptoms so I really feel for you.

Did the dietician mention anything on helping your IBS symptoms? I hope he/she was there for you more than just to tell you that you put weight on. Given that you aren't feeling well, I'm sure that you aren't as active which may be the cause of the weight gain, once you get over this you may be able to get a little exercise in.

You're so sick all the time and have so much D, I can't see how you can be putting on actual weight, unless you're on some medicine that causes it. Surely, surely that weight gain is fluid or a sign of something else. How can you possibly be eating and retaining that many calories??

Hey oneday, hang in there...have you by any chance kept a food diary?  Write down the amount of everything you eat for a couple of weeks, as well as any symptoms you're experiencing, as well as your weight.  This drastically increases your chances of finding some sort of pattern to your symptoms.

Sarah, I definitely believe that the weight gain is due to the steroids. Gosh I hope things get better for you, I don't know what else to say other than I will be keeping you in my thoughts.

i went to see my gp today as my stomach has been raelly bad for a few days. i canet stop hvaeing bms. she was raelly nice to me as she knows i am nerous at giong in to hopstial for my op. i thnik it has caused my bowels to get much worse. i am acutally losing weigth now. she is backing my counliors decision to push for congative behauoral thearpy. she thniks thsi would be good for me. thsi and continu to see the mental healht unit as i still hvae so much going on. i am still findit so hard to live wiht another condition hvae i. it is a cronhic condtion. i sometimes hope thta the floor will open and swallow me up. i try to foget abuot it. the more i put it to the back of my mind the worse my feelings get.

to top it all off my sister in law told me thta she is expecting. whilset thsi is good news and i am raelly happy for thme it is hard to deal wiht. i hvae a condition thta means i may not be able to hvae kids somethnig i would love to do. agian the more i hard these feelings the thye resurface.

i hvaent ben rigth since my nan passed away thre years ago since i hvae lost another two close relatives one being my grandad who was ill for two years.
this on top of every thing esle is starting to get to me.

sorry startin g to pour my heart out now. just not sure where to go from here.

OneDay, you have so much going on in your life that you really need to talk to someone about this where you live. As much help as we can give on line it really isn't enough with so many things going on. We will try to help when we can but please don't let that take the place of seeing someone to talk all these things out. You are having a really rough time for such a young person and perhaps need some group or individual therapy.

Hi oneday,
You were seeing a mental health professional, were you not? I agree with Canyon, you really should continue seeing someone about your problems. It helps tremendously to have someone present who can listen and give you tools to help cope.
I am so sorry your troubles continue. I wish you strength to fight for your health against the medical system and your employer, I also wish you mental and physical help while you go through this difficult time.
We will continue to be here for you.
Take care.

I don't think you have found the right mental health help. Hopefully they will listen this time. I think the cognitive therapy is worth a try. It has helped some people.

I don't know what you mean by they speak to other people. You need counseling on a regular basis. You probably need some antidepressants and you need a Dr. to handle that. I just wonder if you are really listening to what they are telling you to do. I don't know I am not there but there has to be an answer and you just haven't found the right person. Tell them you need individual counseling with a qualified counselor. I don't know you system. You do. If you are not on meds for your angst and depression you need to see about that.

wehn i say thye speak to others i maen thta other people thta go to the mental; haelth unit speak to thme after lessons and i ask and just get told thta i cant speak to someone after the lessons. there is a realy nice lady there who i belive is a theapist who is helping everyone there on an indivial bases. i olny get ten mins after the lesson but not wiht her. i am on the waiting list for counciling i was having it once a week but my councilor left and i hvaent seen anyone since. i am waiting to hopfuly hvae congnative behauor theapy but the waiting list is long. as for the anitdepressants i saw a qualified pscharist abuot three months ago who said thta thye wuoldnet make any diffcence to me. i hvae tryed a few different ones. our system over here is different we get refferd to speaclists by our gp. so we can only go where we can get sent. i canet afford to go private at mo. i can just abuot afford essentals and meds.
