What to do? Ive been in slight to severe pain since last december caused by a reoccurring UTI. I recently saw a urologist who told me (while i was in extreme pain mind you) to “stop taking antibiotics! Your killing your good bacteria.”
me- “but im in servere pain right now.”
Doc- “There is no sign of any infections what-so-ever.”
me- “what do i do?”
Doc- “take some probiotics and these pills (handing me pills). THey will make your urine blue and should ease the pain.”
They do turn my pee blue! And give me diarrhea. But, my pain is mostly gone for now….i think. I mean, im kinda getting used to the pain. Sometimes i forget that i have pain unless i think about it. Ive just simply gotten used to it. But ive realized, i am not supposed to get used to the pain. Pain is our bodies way of telling us something is wrong, be it physical, emotional, or mental. We aren’t supposed to live with pain for long periods of time.
Last week, a friend of mine messaged me and said ,”I feel like God has asked me to reach out to you. I told Him, ‘I dont have anything to offer colleen.’ But God said, ‘ just do what i am asking.’” We got together this past sunday.
Turns out my friend had been fighting UTIs and kidney infections for 7 years (along with migraines her whole life). She saw every doctor under the sun to get answers. She also had been hospitalized twice because of her UTIs. Docs kept finding blood in her urine but kept telling her “nothing is wrong, we cant find any infection.” She became desperate and did what she never thought she would do – see a holistic doctor. The H.D. found some mold and whatnot in her body, treated her, and she has been free of UTIs AND migraines ever since.
This friend, who God told to “reach out to me,” heard Him say that BEFORE she read my blog about my UTIs. Kinda neat.
So, thats what im doing on tuesday. My husband and i are going to see a holistic doctor to see if maybe there is something going on in my body that doctors aren’t looking for. Mold? Fungus? other spores unheard of? Spare me the comments about holistic medicine being “whacky” and/or “inconsistent.” Believe me, i know. Ive read it all. Am i skeptical? yes! But im desperate. And my desperation is trumping my skepticism. The doctors keep telling me “nothing is wrong” but i know that there is. Besides, after i met with my friend, i decided to pray about seeing a Holistic Doctor. I felt like God said, “If you are skeptical – test it.”
So that is exactly what im going to do.
