A bite of my TITS

We’ll start to take a bite of the most smelly TITS this past week: our homebaked Swedish Cinnamon buns – for my Mom.

And the most memorable with this is that Mr Lifecruisers was doing it by himself (not the first time) and forgot to put Cinnamon on the buns at one of the plates! *giggles*

So, now we comes to my boring health issues… I’ve decided to get a firm grip of this now. The multivitamins from the hairdresser helped me enough to get a tiny bit of my energy back, so I can tackle this. I’ still loosing some hair though, so I need to continue.

I’ve got 2 other medicinal preparations from the health store now instead to continue with. #1 is the wellknown Blutsaft (like blood lemonade) with a very high content of iron. #2 is Mivitotal Flex, which has over 100 vitamines and minerals – one of the markets most complete dietary supplements. I hope that it will give me better resistance of illnessess too.

OK, it’s not exactly tastes well, butt I can take that in my hunt for better health since the Doctors won’t do anything to help me (!). I have to try this. The hair nutrition vitamines from the hairdresser did help a bit, so…

I’ve finally changed doctor – this time to that pain management specialist that discovered that I have Fibromyalgia. We’ll see if he can give me a refferal to an ultrasound check of the gall bladder, to eliminate that too. I do have pains in that area coming and going.

Then we comes to my problems with the Gyn. too – I’m not buying this lame excuses they have of my problems. When I was 44 I tested 2 new birth control pills, both I had severe problems with. (Read: they screwed my up totally hormonal)

Since then I haven’t had proper periods either, hardly any at all. Now, 3 years later, they claim that it’s because of menopause, even though they can’t see any tracks of that at my mucuous membrane. I don’t buy this bullshit. WHY would it start exactly the same month I started to eat those pills then?? No, no, don’t fool me only to get rid off the problem (me) thank you.

So I’ve done a research after Gyn. doc’s and now have a list to go through…. Tomorrow I’m going to book an appointment with the first one. If I don’t get any proper check up or help or at least reasonable explanations, I’m going to the next on that list.

I’m not done yet. My teeth. sigh. Having problem with tootache of some kind from time to time all the time. I don’t know if it’s only from the gum (inflammations = Gingivitis) or from the teeth, only that it aches.

So I tried to get an appointment at the Dentist high school to get them to do a check up, but they couldn’t take new customers until August. I’m not choosing them only because they are cheaper, butt because they have teachers to ask about complicated stuff and those teachers are the best.

Plus that if they decide I need to go to the specialist, they are in the same building and it might get faster if I’m lucky.

In the meantime I tried another dentist, butt no luck, he didn’t help me much, he didn’t even clean the pockets in my gum like I wanted to – despite the fact that I tried 3 times to get him to understand my problems with this.

For now, I rinses my mouth 2 times/day with bacterial killer stuff. Its’ not healthy to walk around with inflammations in your body and I already have enough problems (with my back) without this…

I’ve read that you should clean those gum pockets every 3 months to be on the safe side. Even if you don’t feel any pain there, it could still contain bacterias that influences your well-being. And those bacterias is very dangerous, can cause blood poisioning if left there. So, why won’t they clean the pockets regularly?

For me, it’s like either doctors nor dentist want’s to help their patients any more.

So, now you have a full report of my tackles for the moment that I’m working hard on, butt: I’m still going strong! I’ll fight this by my own if I have to, since I refuse to accept this!

    Wow, sounds like you’re going through a real hard time. Hopefully things get better.

    I thought I would also mention after reading the first paragraph I got this huge urge to eat a cinnamon roll.

  2. that frolicsome kid

    Wow, never knew you have so much health issues. =S Worse, the doctors usually aren’t very cooperative. That must have truly sucked. =( I hope that you will be able to receive a proper treatment and advices from a good doctor(s)! Good luck! =)

    Yes, now it would better to take a pause and resolve hardly all your health problem! I had to do that in 2006! I never think to my health always occuped with this of my two daughters! But the doctors said to me now you have to go immediatly at hospital we have to extract a big fibrom so big that we thing you are an african exemple! Yes african women are more concern with fibrom than european women and they arrive at hospital when the fibrom is very very big! Ok! the moral is we have to be very carefully with our health!And the most early as possible. Now all is ok but if I was more serious I’d not need that intervention.
    I will try to cook the swedish cinnamon buns.

    I hope you find all of the right doctors! I know how hard it is to find the good doctors. I have a couple of people I know who have fibromyalgia – I wish they could find a cure for it. You are reminding me that I need to get an appointment for the yearly exams. I’ve copied your Swedish cinnamon buns recipe! The real deal! :-D ((()))

    Ev, you have a lovely crazy (lol) blog which I’m gladly want to come back to too, so you’re added to my “deckroll” which means that you automatically becomes an A-Swab Team member of Lifecruiser – the cyber cruise.

    We are a gang of fun people that has been on a imagined cyber cruise since the 16th of March now, even though the posts about the ports has been fewer now.

    We’re simply put, just visiting each other blogs when there is “cyber cruise events”.

    (You might have read about it on the Irish Church Ladys blog? She hosted Ottawa and a Pirate day)

    Hang around for a while and you’ll be “upgraded” to an A-Team Cruiser which is allowed to (only if you want to) host a port now and then. This means that you write a seightseeing post about your hometown or somewhere else you have been and can show us some photos from, at a certain planned date I can announce in advance to the others so they go to your blog (port). This gives you some extra display and visitors too.

    We have had a lot of fun, cyber partying in the different ports during this cruise :-)

    So far, we has even had a crazy hat parade contest, Best Diarist award, shopping day, spa day and cruise ball and some other events too.

    We’ll do what we feel like, no pressure, just to have fun and be buddies :-D

    Good for you!!! If you don`t get proper satisfaction from one Dr keep looking till you find a Dr who realy listens to you. Good Luck.I wish you the best.
    Hope you are feeling better real soon.

  8. Tricia

    I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been having so much trouble. I know what it’s like to go from doctor to doctor and get one kind of advice from one and the opposite from another … or feel like they aren’t doing anything.

    Feel better soon!

    Hi there! I found your blog by googling Mivitotal ( which I think is the best Multivitamin out there!!!) and read your post about your problems…. I’m Swedish Health Counselor living in New York, and I just wanted to let you know about something….loosing hair can be because of a drop of Estrogen, it occurs when women get pregnant (many pregnant women whine about this dilemma) and I’ve also seen women experience this when they stop taking birth-control pills! It usually grows back within a few months. Stress is also a huge contributor … I hope you find your way back to health soon!!! Big warm hug~Signe
