Days go by like crazy. I have a huge backlog of blogging. The first three months of this year were filled with visits to the doctor: an internist, a neurologist, allergist, gastroenterologist, endocrinologist and a dentist. Finally, I was diagnosed with: chronic migraine and chronic allergies. 15 migraine days per month + an allergy to grass pollen, weeds, trees, mold, dust mites, feathers, dogs, cats and even cockroaches took my energy.

I’m learning how to live better and healthier. I avoid sweets and sugar. Unfortunately, I still drink too much coffee.

I know it is almost June. I didn’t show my cards for Christmas or photos from our ski trips. But that’s okay. I will do it anyway.

I have not written a very long time, but I see light at the end of the tunnel. For more than three months I was sick, I still have some medical appointments. I’ve been in gastroenterologist (I have a small polyp in gallbladder), neurologists and allergists offices. I had an EEG, MRI. The doctor diagnosed a migraine. March 1st  I will know whether the tests will confirm migraine. I also had the Hida scan, but it seems that my pain was not caused by the gall bladder. Now the doctor wants to check the stomach. I hope this is just lactose intolerance. Skin tests (two types: prick and intradermal) showed that I am allergic to dust mites, molds, feathers, cat, dog, tree pollen, grass pollen, weed pollen, cockroaches. Now I know the enemy and I can fight him. Maybe I will not get sick.

I am going to upload some pictures of my Christmas cards. I hope I will do it on Sunday. We are going to ski tomorrow.
