My name is Olga. I’m Spanish. I’m a woman (in case the name is not familiar to you ), and I’m 29 at the moment.
I’ve had weird health issues going on for the last 6 years now. Unlike others in these blogs, in the present my symptoms are not unbearable, I’m not ok and experience scary symptoms, but most days I can manage more or less, although some nights are hard (later you’ll know why).
In 2007-2008 I was sick for a year and a half, with diagnosed intestinal and vaginal candida & other stuff and several scary symptoms, but in mid 2008, I little by little started feeling better. These last four years my health has seemed ok, I did have some remaining symptoms from 2007, and my bowel movements have never returned to “normal” (what I feel is normal, and was normal for me before 2007), but I have been ignoring these, because I really wanted to go on with my life. 2007 was a very hard year for me, and I did not want to go back to doctor visit after doctor visit that goes nowhere, and skeptic looks from doctors and relatives. I also thought that I really had no-one to go to with these issues. So, if I felt relatively healthy, it was ok for me.
Since January 2013, some symptoms from 2007 have returned, this time intensified, and new symptoms have appeared. This has been a potent signal that I cannot keep ignoring these health issues, as they are not going to magically go away, but probably cronify and worsen with time (and no, I’m not a negative person or someone overly concerned about their health – I barely had gone to the doctor before 2007, barely have gone to the doctor these last years, even knowing, deep down, that something was not ok with me). Also, I am concerned because I would like to be a mom in a few years (I hope I can!), and I need to be in good health if I am to get pregnant and bring a baby into this world, I can’t risk passing anything to another human being that may make him or her ill.
So, in the following posts I will be telling you about my past & current symptoms, health issues, and hopefully new findings plus health recovery. Feeling sick, with no answers, and alone, is a very tough life experience that only those that have gone through something similar can understand. For me, finding the RHRPlus website and blogs have made THE difference in this situation that I’m living. For this, I will always be thankful. And this is part of the reason I’m starting this blog; if I can help someone out there that may be going through similar troubles, now or in the future, I will be very happy. Internet is magical, in a way; because people that are very far away can help each other, and help each other find answers.
Also, I’m not a native English speaker, so please forgive me if anytime I write a weird expression or make an error . I was aiming to write this blog in English & Spanish, but I’m starting with English, for now, and will see if I have time to translate posts in the following future.
So… nice to meet you and thank you for reading!
Very nice to 'meet' you. I look forward to reading your blog.
PS. Your English is very good!
Nice to meet you and looking forward to reading you too
