I've got my endoscope thingy tommorrow. I've been trying not to let my tummy bug me too much, but worries in the back of my head have been growing the longer I've had this problem. My mind always worries about the worst possible thing they could find. So my subconscious is throwing stomach cancer and chestburster aliens at me all bloody day. I'm glad I'm taking Paxil to help with the anxiety. My rational mind says I'm sure it's something relatively minor like that ulcer causing bacteria that they'll just give me a pill for and fix me right up. And then the back of my head says 'Chestburster aliens!'. Wasn't there a Mike's Hard Lemon commerical where they were doing the ultrasound and the alien was eating his insides. I'm weird thinking of things like that.
I mean Goblin King on the PVP boards is younger than me and he ended up in surgery getting part of his intestine taken out, so God know bad things can happen to good people.

My Mom's also fighting some kind of breathing problem that's wearing her out. Plus she has to deal with my grandma daily which would drive Mother Theresa to drink. I don't want to burden her with my problems recently.
I talked to my grandma for about an hour yesterday. Or more like I listened to her bitch about Frank and selling her house, etc. She's got it good, my mom takes good care of her even if she's very hard to get along with because we all love her. I'm sure mom has wanted to smother her with a pillow occassionaly too.

My friends in town have been really great. I know I can count on Jessica, Serena, Rilee, and Brett to help me out if I need it. I'd do the same for any of them.
They really been invaluable in helping me deal with all my problems and being there for me in tough places.

I only took Paxil for a very short time, but it really did a number on my stomach. I not only had nausea, but I threw up and had to quit taking it immediately. I remember when you first started talking about taking Paxil and the stomach thing.. Its worth checking into. Although for me, I was misdiagnosed as having anxiety by my quack doctor when I had a rather bad attack of Multiple Sclerosis, so I was in bad condition to start with and Paxil was definitely the wrong meds. The Paxil may or may not be the problem.. I only know the bad experience I had on it. And you've been on it for quite a while now.

My stomach was messed up before taking Paxil, but I haven't noticed any effects by taking it on my stomach, so I don't think I'm having any stomach reactions to the medicine. It seems to be very mild, and I made sure and told my doctor that I couldn't take anything that was hard on my stomach and he said Paxil was ok.

I just thought I would mention it since my boyfriend said that he had the same reaction I did.

BTW, I like the your icon.

Thank *you* for letting me be a friend. If you need anything at all -- even undercooked bland food -- just give me a holler. :)

I'm sure your test will go just fine. And if it makes you feel any better, I'm the same way before medical tests - I imagine the absolute worst thing that could possibly happen.

In the event they don't find anything during the test, be persistent. Make them do more tests or something. Stand up for yourself. Many doctors aren't as concerned about your health as you are. Make them listen to you - after all, you're paying them!

If you need anything or just want to vent, give me a call, no matter what time of the day or night. I'll be there for you. :-)

...and try to get a good night's sleep, no matter how impossible that sounds ;) I'm sure everything will turn out just fine, but I'll send healing thoughts anyway.
