Prayers for Duttin to be strong. To know the meaning of true friendship. To know that when all else fails, we are NEVER alone as long as we have this board. To understand that people and pets come first, walls, floors and windows fall FAR behind!
I prayed for you all last night and wished more than anything that there was something- anything I could do. I realize there isnt..but I do belive you know the importance of this friendship we have forged. Please know Im with you always. You have people who truly care about you and feel every step you take. ok?
Be strong. You have to be. I need you to be, because I cant stand the thought of you going backwards. Youve come so far. Its great that you found a contractor with heart, who understands and Im sure hell do eveything he promises to do- but for now, give it up to them and try to sleep as much as you can and get stronger..the acid tatse in your mouth will go away soon, promise you that.
Please give us (me) updates as you can...and know we are all saying prayers.
That was beautiful, Nikki! I kinda felt an e-hug through here.
I have an appt. with the Opthamologist in one hour. I called yesterday and can't believe they got me in this fast. I've been putting off my eye pain for 3 years due to fear but just can't stand the pain anymore. I did talk to my family doctor about it, but only received drops. I was also at the ER a month ago and the doctor saw that my left eye had inflammation in (of?) the optic nerve and rush me in for a CT scan, which of course showed nothing. I'm nervous and excited at the same time. I want answers.
Thank you for saying prayers for us "all". I am most definitely doing the same.
Hi Nuthatch, and you once complained I didnt have compassion.... now, youre seeing the real side of me!
I think its safe to say that we are all thinking of our Duttin....and praying that things get better for her. Check my other post to you about your eyes...
Well, no, not really. I called you snippy. LOL! I think it was more me than you. No, I know that for a fact! I was really, really frustrated until I found this board. I am SO glad that I am getting to know you, and I'm really enjoying our conversations. You have been extremely helpful! To know that I'm not alone...just ahhh!
Hey- so glad you are BACK! Im sorry you are dealing with all this, but it does sound like you have a ton of support! Interesting that your neck of the woods is producing all this MS, and for generations even. We have had this conversation before- something is going on in the world/water/air we breathe. Whatever it is, youd think they could figure it out so that they could cure it, huh?
Im having a rough week physically too. My hands and legs are not good- but its now Friday and im planning on doing as little as possible all weekend long.
Will check in with you soon...
Im with you. Id love to take the weekend off. you get rest- ok? Im having the same eye issues, leg issues and overall weakness...
Please be okay...take the time to reinstate your family and think about YOU for awhile..
T, please take some time for you today. Stay horizontal and do not Over-DO it! Its good that so many people are caring and asking questions, but I know it can be overwhelming. Stay away from people for a few days and try to just deal with this.
Dont get sick ok? No colds allowed.
Ill check on you later.
What exactly is a good day for TV? lol. I spent all morning cleaning, then to pick up my ohter two stepchildren...then to the grocery store, and run errands. Its now after 4- I just fed everyone early since its snowing like crazy out there and I have a feeling we are going to have to take them home early. I havent sat down yet today!
When is spring, again? And, as cold as it is- will we all be complaining of heat exhaustion in another 3 months?
Today has not been a good day for me.
Im glad you are at least relaxing and taking it easy. Try to take advantage of the time you have to do nothing...theres going to be plenty to do, soon enough.
hi. Me time is going to be in an MRI machine the end of the month. I Swear, those 45 minutes might be the only time I get to myself!
Yes, he went with me to both pick them up and drop them off- they ARE his kids! lol. ..but he is useless...as soon as we get them home and they start whining, he turns on the TV and tunes them out. Even the oldest, the one who is "mine' legally, who is usually GONE on the weekends, hangs out to see her brother and sister and doesnt help at all...she is the instigator of the bunch. But the younger two went home, "mine" went to her boyfriends to watch a movie,; and all is silent in the house right now..(if you can forgive the tv sounds coming from my husband in the den).
Started a new workout routine this week..its a series of 12 DVDs, each one is different...no equiptment, just a chair and dumbbells- its the hardest thing Ive ever done. Each tape is 1 hour long, takes me 3 hours to complete it....today's tape had too much jumping in it, thought i was going to die- and every muscle in my body hurts...but you know what? It feels good to say its muscle pain and NOT nerve pain! IM kind of skipping the real intense stuff- i jump on my gazelle and peddle my butt off when it gets too intense, but overall, I think Ill like this...we'll see. Husband wants to start doing it with me starting Monday night, which would be a very good thing for him to do. He is in great shape, but smokes too much and doesnt really get exercise besides work...maybe it will be an "us" thing. lol.
Okay, heading to bed to lay down and read a stupid magazine. First time today Ive really relaxed....
hugs to you..
Hope your magazine was good,its good hubby wants to exercise with you,I hope he follows through with it.
I'm having a really rough time with my eyes,its the stress.But refuse to give in.
Had to go back to the house today to get or try to find some legal documents and it was really hard as they have started to bag things up.what a disaster,it looked better after the fire than what it did before they started putting things in the kitchen.It was really emotional.
still didn't find what I was looking for,but I didn't go up stairs either.
I'm going in 2 weeks to have a emg/ncs on the right arm,tired of it not wanting to work.
We are gonna get dumped on by snow tomorrow,yea ,nothing worse than being stuck in a hotel room with a 13 year old thats bored.
My highlight of my day is when I got my mail,many nice letters.
I did check in with my DRs. also,so thats done for the week,just wish I could get rid of this headache.
