  • I've successfully(ish) driven myself to and from work once; I got lost in the Big City during Friday rush hour and it was horrible and hilarious, and I'm inclined to dread my drive tomorrow, but I'm trying to think positively and gear myself up for another successful commute. I can do this, I'm never far from help, and I'm never alone.

One thing I've found helpful is when I'm anxious about something to visualize it going well.

It is great to see how you are growing and learning how to  deal with anxiety and overcome it. Praying that the coloscopy gives you some answers. One thing I've noticed with myself is that while for me if I am anxious that can cause some stomach upset, the opposite is true too. If my stomach is upset, I had the tendency to think I must be anxious, when really I wasn't, I just ate too much dairy or whatever.😉Anyway, the point of the story is that knowing what is upsetting your stomach can help with stress .

I've been thinking about this all week (even though I started a response and never finished it!) - I have given a lot of thought to how my brain affects my gut, but much less to how my gut affects my brain. My therapist actually brought up the same thing this week, that even though I'm convinced my anxiety is triggering my IBS, she strongly suspects it's the other way around too and is glad I'm getting testing.  :)  Always nice when my wise friends and my therapist agree on things.

 

Thank you also for your comment on Instagram too! I'm not really expecting the gastroenterologist to find anything abnormal in my colon when they do the scan, and if they don't, the next things for me to investigate will be diet restrictions and anti-anxiety meds. I think it's important to keep working both the physical and mental angles; and while I'm still not thrilled at the prospect of going on meds, I also don't want my anxiety to keep hurting my physical health the way it has for the last few years.  ❤️  I so appreciate your support!

Today is a good day.  :D  It's Memorial Day in the U.S., so Eamon and I are both off work today; and we've "celebrated" by sleeping in verrrrry late, watching "The Great British Baking Show," and swapping funny dog memes.  :D  I had great plans to make a delicious burger dinner, since a lot of Americans celebrate patriotic summer holidays by grilling meat, but realized too late that today I'm on the first day of colonoscopy prep and can only have milk, eggs, sugary candy, and liquids.  :P  

 

That actually turns out okay, despite my disappointment, because my IBS-or-whatever symptoms flared up very high on Saturday and I'm still not 100% today.  😕  I've been super stressed about the colonoscopy (more specifically, about the prep, because I've heard it's a horribly uncomfortable experience and I've been worrying whether it would make me nauseous), and then foolishly ate a quarter of a watermelon, which I don't digest very well; and so those things snowballed and I was extremely sick last night.  :(  So ... getting a head start on the colonoscopy prep after all, it seems.  😜  I'm feeling mostly better this afternoon and am slowly replenishing with Gatorade, and have still had enough energy to do a few things around the house.  ❤️   Eamon pointed out that it might be a blessing in disguise to have a flareup so soon before the colonoscopy, as maybe they'll be able to see some evidence of what happened, especially if there is a physical cause. I hope he's right!

 

It was really shocking and upsetting yesterday to hear the news about @Mr_Willes:(  I'm really thankful that we have this space to come together and honor him, even though we live all over the world and most of us never got to meet him. This is a great group that I'm so thankful to be a part of, even if it's in such a small way these days. And I'm so thankful for everything that Willes did to encourage and support me over the years too. We were really blessed to know him.  ❤️ 

 

Not much else to report today but I'll definitely let y'all know how the colonoscopy goes this week!  :)

If humor can help alleviate anxiety Lewis Black and Jeff Foxworthy both have good bits about colonoscopy prep.

 

howled at Jeff Foxworthy. Thank you so much.  :D  I'm about to go outside and read by the pool to escape the luscious smells of beef burgers and French fries that are wafting into my apartment from other units. A body can only bear so much, even when it is uncomfortable in the gut and slightly nauseous.

Wellp, colonoscopy step one, the prep, is done! 

 

200.gif

 

It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be - last night, for the first bottle, I was a baby and sipped the medicine slowly over the course of 90 minutes, which meant a much slower passage and very close to a new record for my longest time spent in the bathroom (I'm pretty sure it was around four hours :o ). This morning I got up at 5:30AM for the second dose and got it down in half an hour, which meant a much speedier passage and less emotional suffering.  :D  The prep itself tastes horrible. It claims to be cranberry flavored (who would ever dream of flavoring something like artificial cranberry anyway??), but the closest description I could come up with was "leftover juice from canned baby onions, mixed with a splash of cranberry juice and a heaping teaspoon of salt".  :P  Obnoxious but effective. Thankfully, taking it wasn't anything like being sick with a virus or bad food - no cramping, nausea, pain, etc. I knew it wasn't supposed to cause those side effects but I was still skeptical.  :D 

 

I logged on and worked a little this morning, and now I'm relaxing for a little while (and trying not to think about food) until the procedure this afternoon. I am not at all a fan of anesthesia (I'm always afraid that I'll either die or, even worse, projectile vomit or say something stupid under the influence), but I'm trying to visualize everything going smoothly and quickly and painlessly.  :)  Then this afternoon I can finally eat carbs again. I haven't had a carb (besides Gatorade) since Sunday, y'all. This is abuse.

(And don't worry, I've learned the hard way in the past that going directly from a long fast to devouring carbs is a sure way to have a near-miss with a sugar-induced tachycardia heart attack - I'll take it slow.  ;) )

Hello hello, I am Not Dead!  :D  Everything went much better than I expected (story of an anxious brain, yes), and it turns out that my intestines are actually NOT normal, which surprised me not a little. I fully expected them to say "Yep, it's all in your head, just go take some anti-anxiety meds and quit drinking coffee and have a good life"; but they found some mild ulcers in part of my ileum, which could be a sign of Crohn's disease or something else. So I'm really glad that I had the scope, unpleasant as it was, and I'm really eager to get my biopsy results back and see what they have to say. 

 

Today is finally a slow day after a full week of medical stuff, family visits, busy work, shark week, and very stressful driving (including trying to get downtown in time to see said family member before they caught their flight, only to get stuck in stupid rush hour traffic and both miss the family member and then have to navigate scary traffic to get back out onto the highway).  ❤️  I've been watching Eamon play Skyrim while slowly sipping coffee and reading weird news headlines. The weather is cool-ish and sunny and I'm excited to get outside for a walk or something later. And I'm really wanting to make jam thumbprint cookies, and might do that this evening while Eamon has game night with our friends.  :D 

 

And finding this meme makes me want to see Free Guy again, because we watched that the other day and it is unironically now in my top five favorite movies:

Hello hello! It's an absolutely perfect early summer evening, and it's been a really lovely day.  :)  Eamon and I slept in a little bit and went to church, which was lovely, then I had volunteered to shoot some footage at a community / family event at my work, so Eamon got to watch and enjoy the event while I did a few interviews and shot B-roll. It was relaxing and fun and I'm glad I volunteered.  :)   This afternoon we spent some time planning some upcoming weekend trips / family visits, which has got me very excited, and in a little while I'm going to go dangle my feet in the pool while I call my grandma.  ❤️ 

 

Anxiety is a little higher this weekend, unsurprisingly, thanks to everything going on and my having a) a stressful commute on Friday and b) having to do it again tomorrow.  :P  But once again, I'm immensely thankful for all the hard work I've done in therapy these last few years to be able to calmly say "Ah yes, I'm [catastrophically thinking / tempted to spiral / having irrational and obtrusive thoughts] because of [my usual overreacting alarm response to normal life stressors], I need to do some nice things for myself and practice some positive self-talk to ease the stress". Even just a couple of years ago, I didn't have that kind of center. While I would love for all my anxiety to magically disappear, the next best thing is having all this positive evidence that it doesn't have to control my life.  ❤️  

 

In addition to regular life stressors, lately I feel like a lot of things are changing in the way I see myself, in ways that aren't necessarily obvious on the outside. Obviously the driving is the biggest one - it's so empowering  and liberating to know I can go anywhere I want to go, even through the worst of traffic on the most poorly designed highways. I'm finally comfortable with my beliefs and practice about head covering, and where I've settled is very different from anyone else in my family and most of my friend group. It feels weird to be confident and comfortable with that. It's also a huge shift to be investigating a physical cause for my GI symptoms, because for most of my life, I've either ignored them or seen them as byproducts of anxiety - it would turn my world upside-down if I found that there was something physically wrong with me, and maybe even something physical that contributes to my anxiety, rather than only the other way around. And a few weeks ago, I started feeling a big shift in my heart from being adamantly terrified of getting pregnant, to feeling curious about what it will be like and hopeful about the future and growing a family with Eamon. Even though that's still way down the road for now, it's huge and surprising to feel like I can actually do something that's felt far out of reach and overwhelming for a very long time.

 

Along those lines, I think I'm going to pivot back to a challenge thread one of these days - I really want to start exercising consistently, especially if the doctor comes back with a physical diagnosis I need to care for. I want to lift weights and get some strength and cardiopulmonary stamina back. And either way, diagnosis or no, I really need to do better at eating properly. And I'd also like to find some personal goals to work toward - getting my drivers license was great, but it wasn't something I was especially excited about or wanted to do; it was more like completing my graduate thesis. I want to find something I'm really excited to learn so I enjoy working toward it and can use it for stress relief too. 

 

For now, time to go call my grandma.  :D  And I'm going to take a little time to do something relaxing and fun tonight, so I'm not stressing about the commute before I actually need to. It's going to be just fine, it won't be as stressful as Friday, and I'm a good driver and I can definitely handle it. Plus, I'm going to get to meet some new interns at work tomorrow and get started on editing a new video project that I conceptualized and designed. It's going to be a good day.  ❤️

I forgot you had a battle log rolling here and I am SO HAPPY to be able to catch up with you now!!! Gosh you have gone through so much, haven't you?? Between the driving stress (that's a huge one, like big huge) and GI issues and taking that big step for yourself to start healing yourself!  I had a colonoscopy probably about 10 years ago when I was struggling BIG TIME with anxiety and IBS and the like, the prep is definitely gnarly (and for real tho why can't they make it taste any better??? BLARGH) but you showed it whos boss and I'm so proud of you!! ❤️❤️ 

 

When (if) you decide to make a challenge I'll definitely be cheering you on!!

Okay, in the first place: Are you watching "Strange New Worlds?" Because if you aren't but you love Star Trek, you really should check out this show. Like, NOW.

 

32ee42625ca19176d968dfc2b1da7778be4f4b9f

 

The TOS Easter egg at the end of this week's episode made me literally squeal and clap my hands with glee.  :D  Honestly, I'm so glad that most of the folks involved with the overall Star Trek franchise know what a positive influence these shows are on our lives, because going all the way back to Gene Roddenberry I wish I could thank and shake the hands of every single person involved. (Except for Rick Berman probably, though sadly he also produced some of my favorite episodes, despite being a huge jerk.)

 

Anywho.  :)  It has been a rough week, mental health-wise. I experienced a LOT of dread around my commute this weekend, I think because I knew I was going to try a new route and I hate trying new routes; and that same day, I went to a friend's house after work (so, even more stress, driving to an unfamiliar part of town and worrying about whether I'd be home before dark), and she vented to me about the marital problems she and her husband are having (and yet another trigger, my brain immediately going on high alert for threats to my own marriage). I didn't realize how triggered I was, and unfortunately went into a full-blown spiral because of that.  😕  Now, I did realize I was spiraling, and so I was able to meta-cognate a little and remind myself that none of my thoughts were telling me the whole truth, but were mostly just my overly sensitive alarm system going off. That didn't help the symptoms, but did help me stay steady and try to keep plodding forward while I wait for the wave to recede.  ❤️  And, well, today has been bad, but Star Trek helped.  :) 

 

On the somewhat more positive side, I did get my colon biopsy results back; and happily / frustratingly, they were normal.  :P  I am really glad I don't have Crohn's disease, but of course would have loved to have gotten some answers about what IS going on. The GI doctor referred me to a nutritionist and didn't offer any other theories as to why I have ulcers in my small intestine, which was also disappointing. So, after a brief surge of hope that maybe I have something easily treatable and not directly anxiety-related, I'm back to accepting that I probably have IBS that's triggered by my own anxiety.  :(  Even though it's completely unfair, looking at it that way makes me feel ... like a failure?? Like - if I were better at controlling my anxiety, I wouldn't be having these problems. It kind of feels like it would if I went to the doctor for joint pain, thinking I had an injury that could be braced and fixed, and was instead told that I was overweight and out of shape and the pain was my fault. I know that's really unfair, but it definitely feels like I'm letting myself down. But, regardless, I'll go see the nutritionist soon, and hopefully at least find a diet that makes me physically feel better, so that's one less item on the "Why Sky Sucks" mental list.  :P 

 

I still feel like I should start a challenge thread next week, but I probably won't yet, just because I still don't know what goals I want to work on. I ... honestly feel a little lost, at the moment. I want to eat better, work out, spruce up my wardrobe, decorate my house, write, make things, spend more time with friends, get better at my job; and I just feel too overwhelmed to do any of that. Now, some of that is this week's particular anxieties talking.  :)  But I feel like the gap between where I am and where I want to be is really big, right now. I want to be an active, trim, sporty, energetic, happy person who hikes and does home projects and tries new recipes and has lots of interesting things to share with her husband; and I feel like I just ... sit and play on my phone a lot. The days feel like they just fly by and there's no time for me to do things that actually nourish and uplift me; and at the same time, I know I waste huge chunks of day doing nothing, procrastinating, and eating too much.

 

... that's sounding a little like depression, isn't it?  :P  Well, I'm guessing it'll probably pass in a few days as the anxiety lifts. But I'm glad to write it down anyway, because I'd like to come back in a few days when I do feel better, and if it still rings true, see if I can maybe think up some baby steps to work on it.  ❤️  For now, I'd better get ready for bed. And! I do have some days off next week, and I'm going to see about planning some activities, projects, or day trips to try to kickstart my mood a little bit.

 

Goodnight frens!!

I get this. I've felt like that at times too.  WIth stomach and with dealing with pre hypertension.  I still struggle sometimes with those feelings. I'm also trying to see how God has used that to teach me to trust Him more, and just to be more aware of the mind - body connection in general.  I think I've said before, but it's a good  thing to hear: when I figured out the foods that were bothering me, a lot of  my stomach issues got better, and  I realized that there were actual food issues.  Though yeah, when I am anxious, I do start to feel it in my stomach, and it gets worse if I spiral.  I'm also trying to detach a bit with that and just notice. Oh, I'm kind of anxious and now my stomach is feeling fluttery, instead of trying to change thing.

Thank you EG!! I've definitely changed my thinking a LOT since the first time you reminded me that stomach issues could cause anxiety, and not just the other way around - Eamon's aunt and cousins actually have very very similar issues to mine, and we talked this weekend about different strategies I can take to ease my stomach when I fear anxiety is going to trigger a full attack. Your advice and theirs has been super helpful, and helped me not be so afraid of the big scary unknown of What Is Causing Me To Feel Sick.  ❤️  

 

And yes - a big part of what made me feel so untethered last week was that, for various reasons, Eamon and I didn't have our morning devotions; and while my relationship with God doesn't depend on the ritual of doing my devotions, it's a little like how I'd probably feel a bit distant from Eamon if we didn't talk much or keep our weekly rituals for a while. Spending some time listening to Bible chapters and praying about what was bothering me did help me regain my center a bit.  ❤️  Thank you for always reminding me that my spiritual health is part of my mental, emotional, and physical health!!

Ooh I need to look, I don't know! It wasn't feasible when I was single, but we might be able to budget it in with our combined income. Eamon wants to start exercising again too, so maybe we could both join.

 

And yes please, I'd love to hang out and I'd love for you to finally meet Eamon!! I think you guys will hit it off!  ❤️

I can! Sometimes starting one thing still feels overwhelming because I know it will take lots and lots of small steps to get to the bigger steps I want - but it's so much better to do something than to get paralyzed and do nothing at all!  ❤️
