Autoimmune Thrombocytopenia

May 5, 2020

Thrombocytopenia is the last piece of the 22q puzzle. My blood platelets or the immune system factors that help my body fight illness, were consistently low. You see, this planet is saturated in viruses that the majority of us don’t see. Unless you have germ cam, like some of us. My entire life, I’d get random nosebleeds out of nowhere, and occasional bleeding gums when I brush my teeth or floss. I’d have immensely heavy periods at 20, with breakthrough bleeding as is happening right now. I do feel weak sometimes but not all the time, not if I get enough sleep, since I more or less did two nights ago, by waking up only twice.

I need to look into the thrombocytopenia in more detail, seeing as this is something I have. The cause of my low blood platelets is directly related to 22q or Velocardiofacial syndrome. My case is easily left without doing too much to raise my blood count save maybe to eat foods that do that like spinach and eggs. My situation is not that bad, and this blog really does serve as a page that can go more into detail than Facebook. I’m lucky I’m stable in the present and doing well.

      Gee, hm. sleeping the whole night will help this a lot. Sleep is a healer and I’m screwing myself out of it daily. I haven’t had anything more vicious than a cold in 2018, infected by my old man, and the flu in December 2018, both gone in a week. Sheer luck I live by myself.

      • You are getting sleep? i can barely sleep well. its been a while. My hematologist gave me some anti depressent drugs for sleep but still, it failed.
        Now its 3:10am in my timezone and i am still awake. writing to you.

        I take a shitload of meds. I’m trying really freakin hard. I’m working on type 1 diabetes and keeping my mouth shut until I succeed because very powerful magicks are at work as I’m trying to heal myself. I was up at 4:00 a.m. is not sleeping a thrombocytopenia thing I don’t know about? I’m trying. Really GOddamn hard here. On more than one level.

      • Sorry to hear that. sending prayers for you.

        Yes, every ounce of my will is going to make myself succeed at managing diabetes. Every last ounce. I’m succeeding but a huge rule in magick is to keep your mouth shut, so that, m’dear is what I’m trying to do.

      I slept at 6:00 p.m., fell asleep fast, woke up at 1:00 a.m. with my blood sugar at 196, I fixed it, went back to sleep, dropped to 133, ate oatmeal, went back to sleep, woke up at 235, treated again, went back to sleep, woke up at 6:00 a.m. at 82. Ate breakfast, stayed awake. 7 hours at a stretch is great for me. It is not always consistent.

      • That’s really bad. sorry to hear. You should consult another doctor and take proper treatments.

        I bust my butt to have perfect diabetes. I slept a whole 7 hours. That’s good for me. I’m working on it. My endo is leaving in September. Mr. hernia comes out in July or August. The good news is that my intrusive mother butts the frak out about Mr. hernia and can’t do shit. The travel ban works out great. They can’t COME BACK, they are stalled eh? I get to deal with the hernia without mom’s obnoxious personality disorder driven behavior, and her untreated, yep, historically no medication schizoaffective bipolar 1 rapid cycling which I got from her ignorant as sh#% self. My momma so stupid… wow. I have endless yo momma jokes in my head. Holy hell batman! She didn’t get me insulin in time, diabetes turned into diabetic coma. I’m lucky to be 39, here, and not look my age. I will be getting Mr. Hernia treated soon enough, hun.
