Hello all. Probiotic - congrats, you took the leap. As for the other drama that goes on (insert clearing throat) - Lexapro works wonders...
I haven't been posting because I'm a bit stuck. Actually avoiding my GI (you may remember that my surgeon is ready to go, the GI keeps wavering)... guess I've been in the shadows because I have failed to stand up for myself & after some soul searching - it's most likely fear. Fear of what? Not so sure it's the actual surgery or loss of colon. I am okay with having a bag (especially since I now crap myself at least once a week).
It's my household. My four year old - we are together constantly. My Mom has her a few hours each Wednesday so that I can catch up with my Etsy store, & she is in preschool 2 hours twice a week. My husband is a raging workaholic - owns his business and is gone from 6am to 8pm 6 days a week. I force him (literally) to stay home on Sundays which often result in an angry pouting 51 year old.
Does anyone have suggestions of how I can let go of this fear? Any ideas how I can arrange for adequate affordable in home help? Anyone know how long it'll take me to be "well" enough to care for a WILD (overactive, ADHD) physical child? I have to often carry her kicking and screaming - how long before I can do that if I need?
Thanks so much for always listening. I know she'll "live" - but - how do feel it?
