Been Awhile

Hi my bloggsters, yes its been awhile since I posted, I am down 42lbs, I am allowed to eat steamed veggies and melons and I would love to eat period. Unfortunately my jaw the Trigeminal neuralgia is making that difficult. I take tegretol for it but the Dr. thinks we may need to increase the dosage, he honestly feels this is stress induced and it will go away in a couple of months???? WHAT????? I can't bear one more second!! Well thank my Heavenly father for PERCOCET. I can eat when I take that I just need a bib cuz I drool everywhere J/K (LOL) Sorta anyway, We went to the farmers market last week nothing great since it was hot, we also went to the lake (Silverwood) the kids had a blast it was a wonderful Sunday and my parents came, it was so lovely until we were stuck on the launch ramp and the prop wouldn't go up. so we sat there for about oh I'd say 45 min to an hour. Finally we got home thanks to a borrowed tool box!And we will be going back this comming weekend, this is what memories are made of!!!! AMEN

Freedom Loved it while it lasted!!

Over the last 6 days I have had this ungodly, Horrific pain in my left jaw and upper and lower teeth, I can't eat, Drink, talk, brush my teeth really or even have a conversation with out pain. I went to the ER first and they gave me morphine, then dilauded and finally sent me home and told me to see my dentist(TMJ)So The next day I called my dentist and she referred me to a Maxofacial Dr. so I went saw him and he feels yes I have TMJ but that is not the primary problem. My Primary problem is Trigeminal Neuralgia. Basically nerves that cause such massive pain people would rather die, that have this pain. My PCP was filled in on my issue and called in tegretol for me and had ordered an MRI of my brain to make sure there is not brain tumor or MS causing this TN. So I really don't feel stressed, I just want it to go away. I just got done telling my dad on Sunday...that since my WLS I feel so alive and have done more in the last 3 weeks then I have done in the last 3 years. I feel so blessed to have this new found freedom and not being a slave to my body/blood sugar and anxiety is a true blessing from God. While I still am in pain, I praise god for the 5-6 weeks of life I got to live pain and fear free. I will see where this journey leads me but where ever it's exactly where God wants me to be!!
