A visit to the doctor

I have been feeling faint and dizzy for the last three weeks with backache, headache and general feeling of malaise. I went to see my GP as I thought my blood pressure might be very low and that could be the reason for the dizzy spells.

There is a special machine at my GP's surgery for the patient to take their own blood pressure. You put your right arm into the machine and press the on button and it record your blood pressure (which is never accurate). It was now saying my blood pressure was very low.

When I went it to see the doctor she checked my blood pressure with me sitting down and standing up and it was now back to normal. She decided that I may have a virus (another word for I don't know what is wrong).

I am still feeling the same but I know it is all a part of the lupus. I am continuing to vomit every day (mostly nights) as the food I eat during the day builds up in my oesophagus and is still not going down into my stomach, except for my breakfast.

Today is Saturday and I am feeling weak, lethargic, tired with body pain and my legs feel like lead. I had a long soak in the bath this morning to ease the aches and pains and now I am so sleepy.

It's now early evening and my head is spinning and I am feeling faint. I am just trusting God to take care of me. I know He will never leave me or forsake me no matter how I feel or my circumstance.
