Long Week and Hair Did Day!!!

The second week of estrogen and it wasn't pretty. Most of the week I felt weird, like I wanted to cry all the time over anything but I slowly started to feel better although my hip is feeling worse.
It seems the pain this week was horrible, going to call the dr. if it doesn't feel better this week.

Also today getting my hair done today!!!

Back to Specialist

Went back to specialist Sept 23. I printed a bunch of stuff out on webmd about estrogen and highlighted the parts regarding my argument on why I shouldn't be taking estrogen. I was prepared for an argument, and he gave me an argument his was just much better on why I should be taking estrogen. So I'm gonna try the estrogen. I will take a 1/2 for two weeks and then move up to the whole pill. Well see how it goes, I am doing good so far. A couple of bitchy moments, but hey that's with or without the estrogen so that's nothing new.

I'll have another bone scan in about a year and a half and well see how my bones are responding to the estrogen and go from there.

In other news kids and hubby are doing great.
Tons of changes at work and I think they are all for the better.

Now that I can blog from my iphone I hope to post her lots more.

Specialist day..

Saw the specialist today and can't take the regular medicines that go with osteoporsis, so it was either a daily injection for 2 years or estrogen. As much I don't want to we're gonna try the estrogen route. God this sucks so bad, I DO NOT want to go on estrogen.. ughhhhhh...

A decision and day one of no smoking..

I made a deal with PJ that if he takes off half a day of work and goes with me then I'll go see the specialist on the 20th. Now if I go there and he just hands me a prescription then I'll probably go off so well see how it goes.

I smoked my last cigarette at about 1:00 am this morning and have been up for about an hour without a cigarette and so far so good. I haven't killed any of the kids or dogs yet so that's a plus.
Just trying to keep busy doing other things so I won't want one.

Then I got to thinking about how your whole life is scheduled around cigarettes. I mean I go to work early to sit in the car and smoke, at lunch I sit in my car and smoke. Tomorrow will be a big adjustment. I think I am going to start working out at lunch.

I'll keep you posted.

Day three of chantix

And it's going good and I think I'm actually looking forward to not smoking.. To not scheduling my life around having a cigarette. Tomorrow I start taking them two times a day and let's just hope I can sleep or that will make for a very grumpy me.

Pain has been okay for the most part. Hips hurt pretty bad last night and today and still haven't made a decision on going to the doctor. yes I need to go but really don't want to.

Day one of Chantix

I took my first dose of chantix this morning and other than a bellyache for about a half hour I feel pretty good. I know it's probably gonna take a few days to get in my system.

This morning I even got to rest my hips from driving, Kinsey drove me to Giant Eagle and Krogers. Shopping all day for the week and later today going to a Lia Sophia open house.

It's another rainy Sunday and I knew it from the way my body felt when I got out of bed but just gonna keep chugging along and take my pain medicine when I get home.

The first step..

The first big step in this whole journey is I have to quit smoking, I guess I don't have to but want to and need to. I just got back from getting Chantix. I thought it would cost me over a $100 a month but thank goodness for insurance because it was only 1.24.

You are suppose to smoke for the first week you take it and I'm going to start taking it tomorrow morning so my official quit day will be April 4th. This may be the hardest thing I've ever done but it's something I'm ready to do and need to do, so I guess we'll see how it goes.

The Journey Begins..

After two years of being in pain I found out on March 23 that I have osteoporosis. Not just osteoporosis but osteoporosis so bad that I have the bones of a 70-80 yr old woman which would be okay except I'm 36 yrs old. See the problem here. My family doctor gave me this diagnosis told me he would be consulting with an endocrinologist, handed me a prescription for chantix to quit smoking and a prescription to get a handicap pass for my car.. really because in case I haven't said it yet I'll say it again I'm 36 yr old.

So now my dr. wants me to go see the endocrinologist to see if there is more going on and I don't wanna see another dang doctor. I would much rather get my eyebrows waxed which I haven't done in years than see another dang doctor. Will I go, I don't know. Right now I just know I don't want go.
