Today the Doctor gave me the results from last week`s blood tests. In a way it`s not as bad as I feared.
I have high levels of Bilirubin in my blood, which is called Gilbert`s Syndrome.
This may cause yellowing of the skin and in the whites of eyes (Jaundice).
But according to the NHS Direct website http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Gilbertssyndrome/Pages/Introduction.aspx there can be symptoms of;-
- Stomach Cramps….. (A bit )
- Feeling very tried…..(Yes this why I had the test.)
- Problems concentrating and thinking clearly… (Emmm, yes.)
- A general sense of feeling unwell……(Yes.)
Sometimes there are certain `triggers` e.g.
- Being dehydrated
- Going without food for a long time
Living with Gilbert's syndrome
Gilbert’s syndrome does not require treatment because the condition does not pose a threat to health and is not associated with any complications.
I had the Blood tests because I seemed to be always tried; now I know why. The doc also said that my cholesterol was good at 4, this was surprising bearing in mind what I eat !
Two nights ago I had a dream, two people who are dead told me that I had cancer. I spent all day Tuesday preparing myself for getting the results.
At the beginning I said “In a way it`s not as bad as I feared” but in another way it is.
This is the worst of both worlds.
There is no treatment because it is not life threatening.
So I will still live to be 70 or so, but every day I will feel shit !
The chances are that cancer would have killed me in 6 to 12 months.
Apparently Relentless may help, if not I`ll try Whisky… or both!
I well have a more cheerful post tomorrow
