My recovery is so slow, but now that I am feeling a little better I keep thinking I should be able to will myself better the rest of the way.
Or maybe I'm not really sick -- if I would just get up and get moving I'd be fine. Or if I just lost weight I'd be fine. That I'm a lazy sponge forcing my family to take care of me instead of taking care of myself & pulling my own weight Intellectually I know these thoughts are not true but emotionally I am losing this battle right now.

I've fought hyperparathyroidism for close ton5 years now - January 5, 2021 I had 3 of my 4 parathyroid glands removed because all 3 had tumors on them. Thankfully one only needs half of a gland for health. I have double that! (Thankfully all the tumors were benign.) Since surgery it has been a Hormone storm as my system rebalances.
There have been 3 out-of-State trips I needed to make, one of them by myself. The Fibromyalgia Monster that invaded my body flares after travel. The changing pressures & weather of Spring flares both the FibroMonster and migraines.
I am trying to keep up on my PT exercises to stave off spinal surgery because arthritis is narrowing nerve pathways -- yet can't manage all the exercises each day.
Yet I feel that if I am not exhausted, wrung out & at the end of my energy, I've just been lazy today.

Any ideas to help me change this "stinkin' thinkin'"?

I need prayers and healing vibes I saw gi dr they think I have gallstones impeding my bile duct my liver enzymes are still elevated I’m really scared

I have to get an mri on my liver kidneys and pancreas. I am able to eat and no high fever. I’m very scared as I live alone. Who understands how anxiety and ptsd can make a real health crisis that much worse? Have any of you gone through this before? I’m scared and it’s affecting my ptsd and anxiety. Who will pray for me and check in with me? #PTSD #BipolarDisorder #Bipolar2Disorder #BipolarDepression #Bipolar1Disorder #BipolarDiorder #Anxiety #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder #CPTSD #CPTSDinrelationships #HashimotosThyroiditis #GIDiseases #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS #DatingWithAChronicIllness #diverticulosis #ulcer #CheckInWithMe #Upallnight #Photography #Art #Writing #Mitralvalveprolapse
