Well, after having a few good days, HA wise, I have fallen off my "pull myself up by my boot straps" wagon. My problem remains the same--soft bowls. I am taking Ultimate Flora and 2 tsp of Beneful every day. But my stools are still soft--maybe a little improvement, but nothing close to normal. The longer this goes on, the more I think I have CC.
now if I look at this rationally, I have more going for me, than not. I have a clear abdominal MRI, a clear CT scan with contrast of the pelvic/abdomen---Both reports indicate that my intestines have no obstruction or inflamation. I probably have IBS, since I have IC and both go hand in hand----I was on antibiotics from March until April, some of which were the big guns and my GI system needs to recover. I know all of this, but my HA is out of control. I do have an appointment with psychologist next week.
I also know why my HA is out of control....all of my symptoms started after I sold my mom's house. The house I grew up in. The past 2 years I was busy with cleaning it out and fixing it up. Now that the house is sold, I feel lost. Working my butt off getting the house sold, in some small way, felt like I still had a connection with her. Now that it is all gone, I feel lost. I mourn not only my mom, but the house I grew up in. I am now consentrating too much on myself, which I never had the time to do for the past 10 years. My mother was disabled with RA, and being that I was an only child, I was her only care giver. My mom refused to move in with my family, so I ran three times a day, every day, 365 days a year. Keep in mind, I have a full time job, and a family of my own. That in a nutshell is how my HA has gotten to this point.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
