So, you ask what have I been up to. Well since we retired and moved back to our home town life has been a lot easier for both my husband and I. We live in a small town in a valley in Southern Colorado. Actually right outside the city limit's so in the county. Nice and quite and No pollution. The peace and quite has done wonder's for my Grave's Rage. You all know how that is. Also what a difference for my TED. OMG. I have actually been outside with no sun glass's. Can you believe it ? We should have come home years ago...but with all the eye surgery ...not possible.
I just want you to know. You can live with this GD. You just need to find the right place and yes you do have to work on that depression. As you know I am good at kicking GD to the curb. I will be posting again later today. I have so much to tell you. You can be happy again..you can have fun again..you can live with GD. I will encourage you to. If I can do it you can.
There is no cure. But you can make your life better. No we can not all find a nice quite town to live in like I did. But there are still things you can do. Be strong.
Some may ask .."How can you say that?" Well...... here is why. Since my last blog the other day,lol. I have had cancer of the uterus and had surgery and officially now cancer free. I now am Diabetic. Yeah I knew something else was coming. I heard it for year's. If you have GD you will get another autoimmune disease. Did I believe it ? Honestly...NO.
My husband was diagnosed with being a Diabetic a month later. That is the bad part . The good part is..it makes both our diet restriction's easier as we both eat the same things. What ? You think that is all? Nope. I got more for you all. Last year I went in to see my doctor thinking I will get yet another shot in my knee joint. Oh, I didn't tell you ? I have had arthritis in both knee's for a few years now and have had to have steroid shot's in the joint to relieve the pain. Well this time it did not work as the needle would not go in. Ouch! So long story short on that is I have to have knee replacement. Both knee's. So 1st need to see a heart doctor ..make sure I can handle it. 2nd need to see my dentist to make sure I have no infection.
