Breakfast Anyone?

Yesterday was another rough day. I woke up feeling pretty good with just some sternum pain from being in bed but it was tolerable and a couple Tylenol helped to relieve it. Then I took my cereal bowl of medications and it all went downhill from there. I was shaky, weak, nauseous and I just didn't feel right. I know that as I move forward in my recovery these side effects should get better but wow they hit hard right now.

I am also noticing that I'm experiencing increased anxiety. These episodes are frightening and uncomfortable. I feel a bit out of control. I get shaky, my heart rate increases and my breathing increases. This is not a feeling that I like at all. I am sure this is not uncommon for transplant patients but it is uncommon for me. For those who know know me I am generally a very chill person. I've actually been described as the calm within the storm on my performance evaluations at work.I plan to discuss this with my medical team at my next appointment on Tuesday June 13th. I will also have my 2nd biopsy at this appointment. I'm anxious for those results. I'm hoping that the medications are working and less rejection will be detected. Positive thoughts!!!

Hoping for a good day today for everyone!!

Each ❤️ beat Matters

Prayers for you KellyAnn. It is good that you are going to see your medical staff on Tuesday . It is possible that your body can not tolerate a certain medication. With all that your taking it seems it would be hard to find which one, but I am sure with their knowledge they know what each pill will do and their side effect. It’s just getting the right medication your body will tolerate. You are in my prayer.❤️🙏

You have survived an incredible physical and mental trauma and the anxiety is yoir body and brain now trying to protect you from further trauma. Good news is that you can totally overcome it with some easy daily routines that rewire your neural pathways. "What wires together, fires together" in your brain and develops nervous system effects like anxiety but also relaxation if practiced! I am happy to share my materials if interested. You can do this!
