Well I thought I wanted to close this chapter of my life, but I am truly not sure if I come completly off I will be ok, I am down from 5 a day 10mg to 2.5 to 3 a day, by myself, and that was easy, but I am not sure how much farther I can go, as I do have pain everyday, just how much is the question, and I want to be honest with myself, and not bring that "old" behaviour back on board, and try to say that ok I have to have this many everyday, and there are some days where I really am not in pain, but those are few and far between. So that is my delemia, and I am not sure what I really can do, as everytime I see my PM he says well how far do you want to take this, do you really think you can do this by yourself, and he is a doctor that is what I call a "reaction doctor", I'll explain, the first time I saw him he says "What are you going to do if I don't prescribe anything for you", and me being the smart you know what that I am, I promptly sat up and said........"Save 100.00 a month" he just busted out laughing and wrote me my script. I know I do need these, but I also don't want to prolong the agony. I guess I could maintain this level, but I guess I am at that point where all my muscles are so stiff and sore in my lower back, and that of course pushes on the spine which in turn causes pain, so it is like a snowball effect. No I don't feel bad on the meds, I just break out in horrible sweats every now and again, but daily, and being on synthroid I just fiqured it was my thyroid acting up, as I have always done it, and it is horrible in the night when I wake up and my pillow is wet, yech :eek:
so I didn't know if that is from that or not, but anyway on to you.

I have had a hysterectomy at age 38 which was about 8 years ago, and I have felt so much better since then as I had a normal uterus, and no problems when they went inside with a camera and looked at it, but I would end up hemmoraging every month at work, and they were not taking to kindly to that, so I had to do something about it, So my ob/gyn had no problem giving me the hyst. of course that was in "that" time of my life where I was using, and I ended up losing my job because of being dope sick all the time, and that was the only reason, of course all the typical things happened to me, losing everything, and being in denial, but I deceided that I was going to move down here to the beach in SC, and get on with my life, and it was the best thing I ever did, as I didn't want to be a drug addict, I wanted to be normal, and lead a normal life, so I stayed clean ever since I have been down here, and next month we are moving into our new home, and I can't wait, as we had to move in here with a friend of my husbands, they grew up together, and he is an alcoholic, and very irresponsible. Doesn't bathe, doesn't pay any of his bills, he stinks, he goes to work everyday, but drinks all day long, and they both work for the same company, and they are all friends so no one does anything about it, he expects everyone else to pay his bills, and he leaves his room like a teenage boy would, and he will come home and eat you out of house and home, and we tried splitting the groceries, but he would eat everything that was the main part of the meal, and leave the gravy, and salad, that just didn't work, and if you say anything he would just push back, he was always trying to borrow money, or our credit card. in fact last night, a friend of his went to mexico for a month as that is where his friend is from, and our roomate got a call that his flight was messed up and to come and pick him up at Charleston Airport, well he looks at me and says "if his truck doesn't make it there I may call you for your credit card and you'll have to put US up for the night! :nono: :nono: :nono: WRONG!. I told him if anybody gets a call it should be the guys your going to pick up as it is not my problem, and it is rude to ask someone to use there credit card, and don't assume that in the future. Well we finally agreed, but I am at my wits end with him, as he does nothing around this house, and he expects us to do it all. LOSER.

Anyway if I can help you through the rough spots with endo, that is really rough as I know how painful that is, as they said I had that also, and that gives pain a whole new meaning, and you will be so much happier once you have surgery that you won't know what to do, so let me no if I can help, and I will be there for you.

Take care kiddo :wave: :bouncing: :bouncing:

WOW did I ramble or what?
