A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

Health Update

I can't wait for the day that I'm not doing health updates. But here goes...I remain on breathing treatments four times per day, continue to become short of breath, and have lots of fatigue. My skin conditions have all come back. Some it may be due to stress. However, after a bunch of poking with needles and testing, they one thing that they found is that one antibody remains low. So, I will begin infusion therapy via IV to "add" that antibody to my blood. It will be a two to four hour treatment. I'm bring a book, since I don't have an Ipod. I'm told that it could be a one time treatment up to a lifetime. That really helps, huh. Anyway, I'm awaiting a call to schedule it. I am apprehensive, but mostly I hope it resolves the problem.
They also discovered that I have a minimal fluid still in my lungs. All of this could be the cause of my continued respitory system problems. My doctors say that it is an indication of how serious my pneumonia was. I'm glad I'm not working, not including therapy, I average two doctor appointments per week.
Professional Patient,
