This is my first post on my new blog "Beyond The Stones" so I thought I would elaborate a bit on the title of this blog. I seem to be a habitual kidney stone maker, not by choice but because that's just what my body wants to do. Many people including myself compare kidney stones to child birth, with that being said, I think I have about 30 or so fictitious children. Thankfully in real life I only have a few....children that is. I've been through many many tests to find the cause of this problem, but no one can seem to come up with anything other than it's in my gene's....I'd say it's time for a new pair. I will post periodically about this subject in the hopes that maybe someone else goes through the same thing and we can compare notes. This subject is NOT going to be the main focus of this blog.
I have many things in my life that I am passionate about and enjoy, and I try very hard not to let this condition dictate to me what I'm going to do. Although, having said that, sometimes it's unavoidable, I never know when one is going to strike and how that particular one is going to make me feel. I almost always have to have surgery to remove them which usually changes my life for about a week afterwards.
This Blog will have many subjects, some of which will be but not limited to....Fun, Facts, Food, Family and many many more, just depends on what I'm passionate about when I wake up that day.
So, Welcome aboard and I hope you enjoy your stay and find my blog interesting and fun. I am open to suggestions and subjects, so if you have something you'd like to read about that I'm not covering, just let me know.
I hope you all have a blessed day.
