    I'm a Native of Atlanta, GA. I'm a certified SCUBA diver through PADI in 1977. Married 32 years. 2 grown children, 1 grandson and 1 granddaughter & two step-grands! Yay! I've worked hard all my life since I was 11 years old, making my own clothes, helping my parents add on to our original home a complete 2nd 1/2, cooking and canning with my mother, many many volunteer positions throughout all of my life and many jobs at everything from hourly to salary and running my own two businesses.

     I'm Type II Diab. from my maternal side; Angina & Hypothyroidism paternally,  I also MAKE blood clots (Protein C & S deficiency) also maternal.  I also have a congenitally malformed blood vessel in the cerebral part of my brain which makes me dizzy and BP issues and makes my balance off.  Then with the Fybro and CFS and my shoulders and neck fusion, plus my Osteoarthritis in both knees and going up and down steps, it's a daily struggle.

    Being quiet, keeping finances steady, keeping my health issues on an even keel. Lately I was put on a Rx of Protonix for GERD but my new ENT apparently FORGOT that this drug severely interacts with my COUMADIN and it went from 2.8 up to 5.0!!!!! Cardio nurse told me to stop the Coumadin for the weekend, check again 3-17-14 and readjust it. I test at home because mine can be eradict at times and stopped the Protonix Sat. night and it was way back down to 1.3 this morning so I'm back on 10 mg. this morning and 5 tonight. Will test again tomorrow. I MAKE blood clots, Protein C & S deficiency which is hereditary in my mom's family. I HAVE to be on blood thinner. Protonix ALSO made my heart rate very crazy, pounding out of my chest and skipping beats, made me very lethargic, made me have a ravenous appetite and confused thoughts! They need to take that drug off the market! NOW! I'm back on the Equate brand of Ranitadine that works for me!
