    Thank you to everyone who responded to my post-you are all very kind. I have to admit, I can't figure out this message board LOL! I see "bumps", and I see reply buttons at the bottom of each reply, but then it just goes back to my original posts. Anyhow...

    I saw my gastro doc this morning, and he ordered an abdominal ultrasound. It should go well with the pelvic ultrasound (not a fun date) I need to have done due to the female problems I've been having. He ordered more blood work, mostly to check and see if my cholesterol is down from the new meds, and I guess to see if there are any other issues. He gave me those lovely cards to check for occult blood, and said he may need to do another endoscopy. Oh joy. So my mind works overtime again about the worst possible outcome.

    He also told me to take the Acidophillus three times a day for 2 weeks straight, and see how that goes. I'll give it a try, as I can't stand these yeast infections.

    I think I hate doctors, at least having to see them. I used to run away from them when was little. How on earth did I become a nurse?

    I did laugh about the reply about Maui and moving there. I'm sure it's the fact we leave our home/work lives BEHIND that makes us feel better. If I lived in Maui I'd probably develop problems there as well. I have a real problem relaxing. Just letting go. My ex capitalized on all my fears/weaknesses, and it still won't let go. I must find a way. I keep thinking about hypnosis. My perfectionism isn't a good thing. I'm too uptight! I'm a firstborn who was made too responsible at too young an age, and I'm afraid to say I have control issues. Caretaking can be a huge burden - if you aren't really careful. Hmmm...That's when I start worrying/wondering if I've done this to myself.

    Thankfully, the doc renewed my Ativan prescription. I'll need it to chill myself out while waiting for the tests/results.

    And If anyone can tell me a better way to reply to you folks, I'd be ever so thankful!
