"Cramping" my lifestyle
Please excuse me. I am totally down in the dumps and bummed out BIG TIME.
The Reason? Early afternoon on Halloween, I started getting stomach pain. First, they were somewhat bearable. By the time 5pm rolled around, I could hear children starting to scurry about and I knew, I would not be able to hand out candy, due to the excruciating pain. So I placed the candy in a basket, outside my picket-fence gate with a sign: Sorry Kids, I'm sick. Help yourselves.
I didn't care if someone took the whole basket or anything.
The husband was at work. I was starting to run a fever. I was in bed by 9pm and had a miserable night tossing and turning trying to get comfortable due to the pain.
By morning, I decided "being brave" was not doing anything to lessen my pain so I went to the Doctor. My husband had to drive me.
Just by feeling around my lower abdomen and zeroing in on the spot with the pain, he said I had Diverticulitis. Prescribed 2 anti-biotics and sent me home.
I didn't even know how to say Diverticulitis!
Meanwhile, I am still having discomfort. I'm feeling hopeless and depressed - like my "eating life" is essentially over. I'm reading up and I don't like what I am reading.
I'll be 64 in March and I feel I am too damn young for this.
