I have made THE decision. I will NOT be a prisoner any more!

I have let GD and TED overtake ME. I am claiming my life back.
I am starting a new month and a new chapter of this disease. I am going to fight with everything that I have. Because that is who I am!
I have gained over 50 pounds during the last year and with this huge weight gain has come depression, anxiety, intimacy issues, spiritual issues and even the fear of being around others.
I know that this is not the life that I want to have.
I am YELLING it out --- I will fight for my life, my husband, my children
No more laying down and accepting that this is just the way it is..... I WILL change the things that I can and I WILL rely FULLY on GOD to provide everything else.
Love to all---

I know that it has been awhile... so i'll just do a quick update for now!
I had to have my gallbladder removed a few weeks ago. The hida test showed that it was only working at 16% of normal function. After the excess gas passed, I felt so much better. I have been able to do most of my "normal daily" routine. This is amazing since it has been over a year that I could say that!
We even went for a short hike into the mountains, my son loved the waterfalls. The dept perception in my eyesight is still way off and I had to use a walking stick and my husband at times. I did have one small anxiety attack when the canopy got so full that I couldn't see the trail. My wonderful husband talked me thru it!!
I have been cleared by endo and opto to see surgeon in nashville. I will call to schedule next week. I don't know what this surgery will bring. I have been told that 99 out of 100 get their dept perception back. I aim to be in that group!
We have been praying for God's will to work in our family and in my health. Please pray with us!
