    Prosectuor Jeff Ashton asked George Anthony, “If you took that little girl’s body and took it down and dumped it in the swamp, then there’d be no evidence in her car, would there?”

    OK – Where do I start…

    Guess I’ll go with “Salutes” & “Hugs” to all OUR Military Personnel, first… (Yours, as well)

    And now, as I promised yesterday, I will try to explain things, in the easiest way, so that it’s not complicated or an incredibly LONG story –

    As you know, I had surgery last wk – This surgery was DENTAL in nature.
    My health is deteriorating on a daily basis due to a health condition I have been diagnosed with, along with my immune system being suppressed, the two are taking their toll on my teeth.

    I take fifteen different medications, and so they have contributed to the dental issues as well. Being that my immune system is affected, it was NOT the ideal time to be having dental work, let alone surgery – But it had to be done, as the dental issues would just worsen causing further problems, orally and with my overall health.

    Of course, the greatest concern, and continued existing problem is the risk of infection. My immune system is purposely compromised, and so that makes everything HIGH risk for me. My blood does NOT clot, and so they had to stitch everything that caused bleeding, and my body, quite often will NOT heal itself. They’re hoping that being that it is WITHIN the mouth, that it WILL heal quicker and completely.
    Also due to the medications I take, there were also issues about my body being able to handle the anesthetic/deep sedation, and so I literally had to have, and pass, a Medical Clearance for this procedure to take place.

    They were unable to do ANY work without putting me under, being that I’m incredibly sensitive to pain, and they also needed to surgically remove a Wisdom tooth (of all things-I thought they were ALL gone) and also EXTRACT a molar. They were unable to do all the work that was slated and so I have to do this again in, in all likelihood, sometime in July.

    Anyways, enough about that – The REAL problem lies in the disease I was finally diagnosed with. I say ‘finally’, being that it took a while, before any DOCTOR clued in to what I had.

    So now, in addition to a chronic lower back and sciatica problem, that have existed for quite a few years now, I have been diagnosed with:

    “NECROBIOSIS LIPOIDICA” aka (NLD or NL/without Diabetes)

    This is a rare disease that affects diabetic women usually. It is typically found to occur on the shins, however in even rarer cases, it can be found in other parts of the body.

    In my case, it is now reaching up to the chest area, and I have one starting on my left ear now. The left side of my torso has several spots increasing in size and number, and the right side is starting to develop some spots now.

    My once AMAZING Legs, are a fowl mess, and this disease continues to creep up my body.

    I am currently undergoing a form of Chemotherapy, which originally was prescribed in a pill form, taken
    once weekly. Starting next wk, I begin weekly injections in the belly area, being that things are not working as is.

    On top of everything else, I am unable to work right now, and so that makes me very unhappy, and leaves me on Disability for the time being. I still try to help out, when are where I’m needed, but they know I’m not well, and so
    they try to leave me be.

    It’s ALL just really ‘killing’ me!

    So that there is no question, know that this being confirmed via biopsy.
    I DO in fact, for sure, have it, and there is NO disputing it.
    It is NOT Psoriasis!
    It is NOT Empentego (sp)
    It is NOT Excema
    It is NOT Flesh Eating Disease

    This condition is irreversible and INCURABLE.
    Seeing as I do not have diabetes, and I have it on other parts of my body, (not just the ‘shin’ area) it makes my condition even more idiopathic – Which technically is how they have diagnosed this.

    “IDIOPATHIC”!

    Kind of makes it all the more haunting for me. . .

    Anyways, at this point, I continue to have various kinds of tests on a regular basis, as they need to continue to check for Diabetes and other possible disorders affecting my organs and immune system as a whole.

    I’m struggling with it all, and I am horrified when I see my body being taken over by this. On a daily basis, it destroys a little more of me, but I’m not gonna give anything up just yet. I will somehow get thru this…Even if, I’m not quite sure how yet. . .

    Here is the BEST link out there on the Disease…
    It’s the best one, I’ve found so far – And this is in fact, the Doctor that I actually wrote to:

    http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1103467-overview

    So that’s that!

    Please know, I’m sharing this so that OTHERS may be made AWARE of this Disease, and not for some ‘pity party’!

    My apologies for the length of this response – Kim, I’m sorry for taking up so much room… I tried to make it short and sweet, but I’m finding out real quick, that there is NO “Short and Sweet’ to any of this!!!

    Please make those around you with Diabetes, aware of this disease.

    Though rare, where there are unresolved issues or open sores on the legs and feet, it could be that this disease is going un-diagnosed for them.

    Most diabetics know, it is IMPERATIVE that they take absolute care of their legs and feet. The same applies here with Necrobiosis Lipoidica, due to infection and ulceration.

    I’ve met a few people on-line with this disease, of course from different parts of the world, and in that grouping of folks, I’ve actually met 2 MEN with this!

    Now, that’s IDIOPATHIC!
    LOL!

        I will go through and fix it, Cap. No worries. Thank you for taking the time to explain. How awful for you.
        I know the not working part has to be the worst since I know you love what you do!
        I am here when ever you need to vent!

        Hugs!

        It means much –

        And I seem to do ALOT of VENTING
        here – LOL!

        Thanks for letting me ‘un-leash the
        beast’ sometimes…. LOL!

        NO!
        I do NOT have DIABETES!

        And I DO have my moments…
        When IDIOPATHIC might
        be fitting, and appropriate
        to describe myself… LOL!
