real life is catching up with me. not in a good way

i want to thank everybody so much for your concern!

my mind has been a little distracted over the past weeks, because it seems that i might have the same chronic autoimmune disease that my sister has been diagnosed with seven years ago.

it is not a death scentence, but it certainly is life changing. i have not been diagnosed with it yet, but i have been seeing many doctors over the past couple of weeks to figure out what is wrong with me.

and i don't like to go to doctors.

i tried to "ignore the symptoms away" for a few months now, but now i felt weird enough to have the thing checked out. and ignoring symptoms that i know all too well from my little sis is not really wise, after all. it might be another couple of weeks though before i get a definite answer. i am really afraid, to be honest.

i don't plan to go on hiatus here, but i might cut back posting over the next few weeks simply due to a lack of time. cheers again for your support!

Hi Gerda,

It's Kate from the US...sorry to hear about your health troubles. I am wishing all good things for you, and I should have a box of Tex Mex goodies on the way to you very soon (I'm just trying to track down a couple of my favorite recipes that have disappeared)!

*hugs* I know how hard it is, going through something similar.. it takes years to understand WHAT is happening.. rheumatology is NOT an exact science (immunology is too stupendously complex to believe). I have gone the drugs/meds route.. prefer to try it without.. I am not perfect so dont ask me whats the BEST Way.. have had two kids post sorta-diagnosis.. so life DOES go on.

Oh no! :( Sorry to hear about the stressful times.

Good luck! I always enjoy your blog, and I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope that everything turns out all right for you.
