It has been so long sense I have been on this site. I guess u don't wont to think about all the bad stuff when you feel some what normal. I think it was like months and months ago.
So here is an update: got a miniture daushund, I graduated from highschool, enrolled in a tech school, got my first speeding ticket on my way to school, had some serious skin issues. ( face, neck, chest, and shoulders, and some in my scalp) it looked like i was a burn victum and had ulcers in my mouth and had another flare which was why i had the skin issues and ulcers in my mouth plus sleeping at least 15 hours a day. so that lead to 3 days of iv steriod treatments and my arms looking like i was severly beaten.
So after that i started to feel alot better more energy, i could eat again after my mouth healed up. I wasn't sleeping all day. I was litteraly on the couch all day sleeping. so after all that i ended up getting a new rheumy which i love! His name is Dr. Parris which i don't mind sharing b/c he is the best rheumy ever! sorry if that is against the rules about personal info and all that.
The bad thing about the skin issues is that it has left some pretty nasty scars to go along with the on going stretch mark issue. But even though they are fading they still look pretty disturbing. My weight is still pretty high for me I am having alot of trouble with fast food and eating when i am not hungry. I thought everything in a new school would be so different that i would come out of my shell, its not so hard but definantly not as easy as i thought.
i still haven't got to a therapist yet. #1 b/c right now i definantly don't have the cash for that. but i really do think it would help me out alot there is so much stuff i am not sure about and so much stuff i need to talk about so someone i know will listen and not just say "yeah right so anyway back to what i was saying".
wow this is an unbelivable long post but like i said its been a long time. so thanks for reading this if you made it this far.
