Good News on Test Results

My tests came back negative, no H Pylori and negative on any problems on the testing for the polyp. All great news. All the causes of gastritis are things that I am not doing; no on use of aspirin, no on use of anti-inflammatories, no on use of alcohol and smoking, no on H Pylori. I get the stink eye from everyone I see when I tell them that, like they think I’ve got to be doing something I’m not admitting to. But I think the gluten intolerance/sensitivity issues could still be contributing to my still having these problems. Not sure.

Now I am going to get another appointment and try to convince the specialist to do a dna test for Celiac’s. I had one blood test done, but have been gluten free and so it wouldn’t show on the test. There is another test, but you also have to be eating gluten. The doctor said for two months, I told him there is no way I can eat gluten for two months.

I will be taking prilosec prescription medication for the next three months. I’ve been taking it for three days and already I can tell a big difference. My stomach is healing. I am hoping that it heals a lot and that would be so lovely. It would be totally great if my gluten issues where only a problem due to what I can heal from and eventually I can heal enough to eat gluten and be able to buy so much stuff cheaply and everywhere instead of having to spend so much extra money, time, effort, and energy living gluten free. It is expensive. It is exhausting.

I am giving myself Reiki healing energy and that always makes me feel better. I want to help myself to heal.

I am really looking forward to being well or even a little better, I could get used to a lot of being a little bit better and would be mind altered if I could really conceivably work towards total wellness. Ahh, bliss.

    • Hi,

      Thanks. 🙂 It is nice to get good news, of course I thought I would get good news, because I thought that I knew what was really going on. I only really started worrying about something worse since seeing the specialist. And I tried to distract myself from the worry when it came up. That was successful most of the time, which is another good thing.

      Good and healing thoughts to you.

      • Thanks. I really needed to hear that.

        I feel as though I did a really bad job when I stayed with the doctor who would not listen to me and believe in what I was saying. I tried so hard and for so long with all kinds of doctors and six different specialists as well. I tried really hard, but it took a long time for me to just break up a doctor. I tried really hard to find another doctor too over the last several years, so I guess I did do a lot, I just wish that I would have left that clinic completely year ago rather than only three months ago.

        I’ll try to remind myself that I am doing a good job of working on healing my body. Good and healing thoughts to you.

      • You’re very welcome. I think doctors are funny with those of us with mental health issues. They are slower to take us seriously when we complain about something a “normal” person would complain about(and be treated for). Thankfully not every doctor is like that but lots just think we’re our mental illness first and everything is related to that!

        Finding another doctor is not fun and leaving one is hard b/c we have a relationship built up even if it’s a bad one! It’s good you switched doctors. Sounds like a good choice. Hopefully you will keep on feeling better.

      • Hi,

        I didn’t share about anything but health issues with him for years, and he even ignored me then. So I think that not being taken seriously by him predated speaking to him about abuse or dissociation.

        My chiropractor told me recently that doctors don’t really know a lot about gastroenterology issues and that explains some of my issues with doctors. I wish that the chiro or someone else had told me this before and I definitely switched to a specialist, but then again I have heard of specialists who don’t understand gluten issues at all or act as though no one can possibly have them. As usual I just end up left with feeling let down by them all.

        Thanks for your comment. I really appreciate it.

        Good and healing thoughts to you.

      • Ah, well I guess your former doc just wasn’t very considerate. I didn’t know family doctors didn’t know much about GI issues. It’s too bad, as you say, your chiro. couldn’t have mentioned it before about docs and the GI stuff. At least you know now! 🙂

      • Well my doctor was all dismissive about what I would say that was gastro related and felt free to continually diagnose me as having IBS, though of course I didn’t and don’t and denied it to him every time he brought it up and it is a disease that should have made him give me a referral. So I think he was an idiot or most doctors are about such things. No one else at that clinic took me seriously either, so I probably will never know if they knew what they were doing or not, just that what I told them did not solicit the type of healing help that I had an expectation that they should and would give to me.

        Thanks. Good and healing thoughts to you.

      • Hi,

        I have a lot of feelings about it all and having to deal with so much pain and going in there over the years so many times and asking them to care about me and help me to heal over and over, it is really hard to think I went home and had to cope with so much pain and get nothing in the way of healing from them that they owed me as a patient. I hope to get a lot better and to keep healing and believe that so much of my life will be so much better, but also I really hate and resent all that they put me through by not helping diagnose me and helping me to heal. That was their job. They owed me that.

        Still I am going to get better. I am going to heal. And I am going to make a better life for myself. And I so much want to leave them behind.

        Thanks for your comment. Good and healing thoughts to you.

      • I can sympathize but hanging onto resentment isn’t helpful. That just allows the S.O.B.s to keep on harming you! Mind you, I can think of a few nurses and doctors I’d like to give a piece of my mind to! But I don’t hate them. Their actions were sh*tty but I can’t let them keep bothering me. It was years ago in my case. Hopefully you can let go of the resentment in time.

        You know the old saying “the best revenge is a life well lived”? That is what I recommend. Live your best life and heal yourself with a giant F.U. to the crap doctors!
