I am such an IDIOT! LOL Here I have been replying to this "internal TENDER POINT" thread using the words "TRIGGER POINTS"! When I just did a whole thread on the difference between the two! DUH me! I hope I didn't confuse anyone, but myself, obviously!
Jan, and everyone else who have read my comments about internal "TRIGGER POINTS" please disregard my comments! LOL Trigger Points ARE internal! Duh! LOL I amaze myself sometimes at my own denseness! LOL
Anyhoo, Jan, Jessy's question about internal TENDER POINTS is a good one. Usually we are used to them being at the surface and only felt when they are pressed upon. I DO wonder how "deep" within our skin they actually do go. Hmmm....Did the docs give her an answer to that question? I'm going to ask my doc too, like I said. I'm glad I caught my foopau before I made myself look like an idiot infront of my doc. I can just see his face now: "Internal Trigger Points? AREN'T they internal? (This woman's nuts!)"
So, how is Jess? I had my appendix out when I was 23. Kinda makes you wonder why we humans have all these things that we dont' need anyway. All these things that just get infected and have to be removed.
Just a word of caution incase the docs didn't advise you: Jess will probably take longer to recover because she has FM. We take longer to mend than "normals" do. But I imagine Jessy already knew that! LOL
I don't know if you noticed, Jan, but we have a couple of new young girls who have joined our group here. Alexandra and Meg. Although meg hasn't posted herself, her mother has using "megsmom" as her username. You probably have a lot in common with her, I think she stated that her daughter was 13. It seems that our population of teens and preteens with PJFM is growing.
Godsgirl (Julie) has been replying to some of the girls posts, so that's good. She did suggest to megsmom that it would be great if meg herself could post so all the girls could get to know each other a little better. Same with Jess. I know she would be very welcome in that special group. Do you think Jess would like to get her own username and post? I saw one post of hers under your username. She's quite the young lady! LOL Smart! Push her in the direction of studying for the medical profession! LOL
How is your husband? Did you say Leukemia? What kind of treatment is he getting? Is he able to work at all? Are you alll getting help from your state? or govt? I know it must be hard for all of you. This is not what you planned for 10 years ago is it? Funny how life does that to us. I always try to find a reason for it. Haven't quite found one yet, but I'm still lookin'.
Jan, try and take a moment to read the thread I started that is titled "Words of Wisdom:..." The poems are very inspirational and sometimes words of inspiration are very powerful when you are up against the "wall" (so to speak).
Well, my Kiwi friend, I hope you are doing as best you can. Be strong and come here to post anytime.
Hugs to you and your family,
