Hi Rosie, Emmi, and Butterflake,
It's nice to catch up with you through your posts. Did you take some time off Rosie? Emmi, I'm so envious about you and your grandbabies. My son and his wife talk about getting pregnant in a year or two and I'm already starting to knit baby clothes. Babies kind of put things into perspective, don't they. Your SSDI news is wonderful! What a relief for you. What tests are you getting? My mother had frontal lobe encepalopathy. Is that in any way connected to what you have? She also had lupus. We never could figure out why she couldn't walk except for her encepalopathy. Her mind was intact until the day she died.
My memory has gotten so bad that my PCP is sending me to a neuropsychologist for a workup. I hope it's a result of all the meds I'm taking. I'm only 58, too young for senility to start setting in.
Rosie, there's nothing worse than gastro & bowel problems. I've been having fits with pain and all the yucky things that go with it and we finally determined that it was gallbladder so we're going to jerk it out on Wed and I should feel a lot better. Sometimes I wish they could just jerk out our entire gastric system and make us well. But oh well, the things we have to live with. I hope the doctor at the Cleveland Clinic helps you.
