Thank You for Your Patience Waiting For This Updated Endometriosis Post! I'm Too Ill For a Full Post Now (Details Below)

Here's an update on why you haven't heard from me for a few days:

On June 13th I was VERY ill. I saw one of my specialists 6/13 and he was leaning towards having me go to ER. However, we found a less invasive way of dealing w/the situation. I'm not up to posting a blow-by-blow account due to low energy level (at least not right now). Please keep checking back for new endometriosis posts. I expect to be feeling well enough to post an entry (besides this just updated one) soon! I just can't do it right this minute. Thank you for your patience!!!

Today (June 15th) I am still quite ill. I hope to do a "real" endometriosis post soon (i.e. specifically about endometriosis rather than about my numerous chronic illnesses acting up and me being in a situation where I can't do much activity since I need to relax). One of several reasons that two of my doctors were going to send me to the emergency room was that my blood pressure was very high plus I was having vision problems and severe head/eye pressure that my doctor seemed to connect back to the blood pressure being so high: (190-121) on June 13th when it had been a perfectly normal 120/80 just 3 days earlier at my primary care physician's office)!

So I've been taking some well-needed time to "chill out" in hopes that my blood pressure will stay low enough that I won't have to go to the ER. I'm still trying to avoid going to the ER at all costs. (That's a long story). Let's just say I AM following my doctors' orders --- but I have had some close calls this weekend where I thought I might have to go to the ER between Friday and today.

I wrote a LONG, detailed response to Alicia's comment to this post but somehow I accidentally wiped it out!! I'm very sick and just not "operating on all cylinders" today.

***
I SHOULD EMPHASIZE THAT THE ER TRIP MY 2 DOCTORS SUGGESTED AS A POSSIBILITY YESTERDAY (THAT MAY STILL BECOME NECESSARY TODAY) WAS NOT FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS.
***

Today I'm just focusing on meeting the doctors' criteria for not going to the emergency room and focusing on how to NOT go to ER today. I'm just trying to make it until Monday and call my PCP first thing in the morning with an update. I'll keep you posted.

THANK YOU everyone for your patience. Lots of endometriosis posts will be coming up as soon as I'm stabilized!!! Thank you for your patience!!!

Alicia,
By the way, you have already helped me with your kind words. I appreciate those positive thoughts and healing vibes! Friday was actually pretty scary --- and I'm not out of the woods yet... but I have some tricks up my sleeve now and more clues as to what is happening with my body. Thank goodness the doctor I saw Friday is so brilliant (and he really is brilliant!) to put the pieces of the puzzle together the way he did. (I don't know if you've ever seen House? Sometimes I feel like a medical mystery patient on the show House because I have so many issues at once that doctors can easily get confused --- as can I). Friday I was scheduled for a 15 minute appointment and he spent just under an hour with me. (I was the last appt b/4 his lunch hour). So he sacrificed his lunch hour to help me! He is so awesome! Anyway, I appreciate your thoughts! :)
