All I want for Christmas

Hmmm... this is not likely to be very cheery. I will put out my less than happy thoughts and then I will move one, maybe tomorrow.

I am taking my VSL#3 most days. Sometimes I forget. I think it helps my system but it is not the miracle that I wanted it to be.

I have a little pain most days. Things are not terrible, they just aren't as good as they could be. So I must continue to take care and take my meds and my probiotics. I am having some trouble with infections. I have had a sinus infection for about 6 weeks. It seems like it is about to clear up and then it gets bad again. I am also unable to get over any fungal infections. They are taking over my body and so I can't take an antibiotic for the sinus infection. My new doctor will not give me anything for the fungal infection like I have had before but she did give me a three day supply of a medication that I take by mouth that should clear my system. Fingers crossed. The one day treatment and topical creams etc did not work. I am starting a steroid nose spray.

My mom has been admitted into the hospital due to chest pain. She had a heart attack about 9 years ago and has been working on being healthy ever since. This last weekend she visited. She wasn't herself. She had a lot of pain and finally decided to have herself checked when she got home. They kept her. I haven't heard any news today. I hope no news is good news. Hope she is feeling better.

One of my oldest friends, who also suffers from UC, has not been doing too well. A family crisis lead to a bit of relapse and that lead to depression overwhelming her. She is an amazing, bright, beautiful person.

All I want for Christmas is a miracle or two.
