Setbacks Stink

OK this is ridiculous!!! Another setback. When I had my chest wall contusion, the hospital did blood work. They were checking to see if I had had a heart attack. Of course I didn't, but unfortunately they found that my iron is really low. My doctor recommended I go to a specialist (Endocrinologist). Well I went today and got the scoop. He said they are concerned because I could have a number of things....Ulcers, Crohn's Disease, irritable bowel syndrome or cancer. Or it just could be from taking too much Advil. Geez!! (Probably the case!)

Then I am still fighting the side effects of the cholesterol medicine, still very tired and I am still having eye ticks. I have about 60 per hour. They don't hurt, but are very distracting. Plus I look weird!!!!

I am not wavering from my plan, but I am a little deflated. Seems I take 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. I really want to move past all of this medical stuff and start feeling better. I have literally had everything looked at from head to toe ~ from x-rays, MRI's, EEG's, EKG's, Ultrasounds, CAT Scans, Endoscopy,
colonoscopy, blood work and doctors visits and doctors visits and doctors visits. Over a years worth of time has been taken to get all of this done. I am so done with medical tests & doctors!!

When, not if, I get this weight off, I will have some stories to tell!!! I will continue on and push through until the end!!

What will you do to push through your setbacks?
