Well I’m back, and I don’t understand what has happened but from the day I left on vacation on until now, I have not had one incident of incontinence. I don’t know if it was the iron I was taking, but previously I had problems even when constipated. I have had my third visit for Pelvic Floor Therapy, I don’t know if the exercises helped enough, it seems too short a time to be that effective, but I’m enjoying it while it lasts.
Before leaving for my vacation, my therapist at the Dr.s office suggested that I might have mild cognitive problems, even saying that the quicker it’s treated the better the outcome. I asked my friend what she thought and she said she had been thinking the same thing. She asked me if I was upset about it. I said “ no because I don’t really believe it.
My sister-in-law said she noticed a difference but thought it was because of my antidepressant which was recently increased.
I am very forgetful which causes a lot of inconveniences. Tomorrow I go back to the therapist and will ask him what he based his suggestion on. On Wednesday I see my psychiatrist and will tell him about this and see what he thinks. In the meantime I wanted to go on the MCI group to see if others problems matched up with mine at all. I am a very busy person and have a lot on my mind with sick friends, and family to keep up with, including our handicapped daughter who lives with us. So I’m wondering if I could join that group.
Thanks for your time and the work that you do. Emi.
