    When you get your ER bill, call the financial office and tell them you are self pay. People here who are get 80-90% off their bill. Sounds crazy, but it's true.

    How are you feeling today?
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    Now, for the last few days, I've had pitch black, almost tarry diarrhea. I've passed numerous blood clots. My back hurts. My whole abdomen hurts and when someone pushes on it it feels absolutely atrocious. I'm dizzy. I'm nauseous. I'm running a fever, I'm vomitting. I finally went to the doctor today. He sent me for some blood work to test some enzymes to see if I have an infection in my intestine. But he's suspecting that I'm bleeding internally in my upper GI tract..because I'm basically classic case of that. He is sending me back to the gastro doctor that I went to before..which they didn't catch anything last time. x.x They were supposed to call me today and didn't, so I have to call them tomorrow. He told me if I was hurting tonight, vomitted, or passed more blood, to go to the hospital. Guess what..I did all of those things..and didn't get to go to the hospital because my mom said it "won't do any good" and she doesn't want to pay the bill. She's skeptical because she was an ER nurse for like 15+ years. She said I'd leave with no answers. Hell, last time I went to the ER with a status migraine they fixed me right up and gave me pain killers. I need pain killers.

    and now Delilah is behind by over 100 votes in that stupid Drago contest..even though I've been trying super hard to get votes.

    I guess I just need to vent. I'm upset about my job. I honestly feel like I'm dying at some points because of how bad I'm hurting. I'm scared that I'm bleeding internally and that it's just getting worse.
    Ur sickness almost sounds like my hubby he had h-pylorie he was sick for months and months and had ultrasounds cat scans blood work stool samples checked. He had coloniscopy and the upper Go checked ongoing it was awful. I hope u feel better

    @bulldog family I'm feeling okay, other than the fact that I'm ridiculously tired for some reason and it's a chore to move around.

    I've had a killer head ache the last two days. Dizziness today was horrible. But, my stools aren't bloody and I don't hurt quite as much. I'm just extremely tired.

    I'm just letting you all know that I have an appt to see the GI doctor at 10:45 tomorrow..and then I'm most likely getting an endoscopy done afterwards. That's why I haven't gone to the hospital yet..because I've had this appt. Believe it or not, that's the soonest they could get a person in whose doctor suspected they were bleeding internally!! Ugh, wtf. The health system sometimes.. I swear.

    Honestly, I'm hoping they do an endoscopy tomorrow, find something that's bleeding, and fix it. Because then I know I'm not nuts and that it's getting fixed.

    I'll keep you all updated.

    @Lucy-licious! I'm just confused as to why I had really bad black stool for a few days then it cleared up and I was left with a bunch of nausea and dizziness symptoms.

    Knowing my luck they won't find anything..like with the last time they did the scope up both ends. sigh.

    I've had GI problems for so long, I feel like something has been missed in all of these workups that I've had. This is probably the result of something that's been missed.

    Last time they were mainly concerned with Crohn's, which ended up being a negative.

    I'm thinking your iron's high again. I suffer mildly from iron deficiency and taking iron pills cause me to have black stools.

    @savemejeebus he doesn't suspect iron at all.

    Well, I went in for an appointment. he decided he wants to scope both ends instead of just the endoscopy. So no scope yet.

    I'm going in tomorrow at 6:30 AM for both scopes. He fit me in before everyone because he doesn't want to wait on me any longer. So..doing colon prep today. I hate it. I'm SO HUNGRY. gaaaah.

    Oh, and my blood pressure was 88/66..loool. I'm usually like 110/70.

    Low brood pressure explains the dizzy spells, probably from low blood volume, good luck tomorrow, we will be thinking of you and hope the doc can find what ever it is making you bleed internally. Keep us posted.
