 +//Elijuh// Thu Dec 6th, 2007  light sensitivity 7 Anorexia 3 
 +
 +Sat Dec 15th, 2007 Anorexia 4 lost 3 pounds in 20 days

 +Dec 27th, 2007 
 +Anorexia is improving! ​ It's kinda funny that I had it during Christmas…must have been all the relatives! ​  
 +Mon Jan 14th, 2008  Notice I switched from the Ultracet to Demerol. ​ The Ultracet caused the anorexia to worsen tremendously. ​ I am six pounds down but staying steady there. ed May 6th, 2009 20:43 I am experiencing anorexia. ​ I don't even think about food.  No appetite. ​ I have begun setting a timer to remind me but I don't ever finish a meal.  Weight is down considerably. ​ Below 110. I am 5'​5“. ​ This seems to be worse since I went for an esophagus dilation a few weeks ago.
 +
 +May 7th, 2009  I was tentatively diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa in 1981.  Interestingly enough it seems to run in my family. ​ My grandmother died of AN in February of 2006.  5'7” and 83 lbs.  But when I was diagnosed with AN in 81, I obsessed about food.  I didn't eat it but it consumed my thoughts. ​ It was very inline with my OCD issues. I had rituals that surrounded my eating. With this IP, food isn't crossing my mind.  I think I'll try upping the Benicar first to see if my appetite returns. ​
 +
 +Tue Jun 9th, 2009  My Anorexia is still here and now the Anorexia Nervosa stuff with the OCD issues is rearing it's ugly head, too. upping Benicar as of right now. It hit me tonight what was going on when a friend told me that I needed to eat and I argued them down.  Sigh.  Just like the old days.  Argue and then distract them.  It took me several days to realize I was back with the OCD stuff. ​
 +
 +Support team: //You can back down the Zith, since you feel that it is causing all this, no need to hurry and xtra Benicar ​ OR  keep Zith where it is and add in Benicar 40mg/4hrs and use 20mg sublinigal (taste ugh!).//
 +
 +Tue Jun 7th, 2011 After 7 years of serious illness I am seeing huge improvements. ... Tumors in my feet - shrinking and pain is gone. Breathing - easier and better. Swollen rib cage - gone. Headaches - gone. Tendons - FINALLY some better - not great - but better. ​
 +
 +Vomiting - almost gone- Now down to vomiting once or twice a week. Anemia - gone. White count back in normal range. Reflux - better. ​
 +
 +I was having to sleep really elevated to keep the stomach acid from going into my lungs. I can sleep with the bed elevation lower now. Sleep is improved. No longer on any sleep meds…except when I'm worried. .... I'm not completely well but I am getting there. I know I have more years in recovery but I can do it
 +
 +So that is it. I am starting to feel normal again. I even have less of the nerve issues in my hands now. I didn't think things like that would ever go back to normal. But I can feel them normalizing. The word for me is beginning to be…NORMAL. ​ 4.5 years on the Marshall, (was on one antibiotic protocol or another since July of 2005). ​
