VERY unlike me, but I can't stand the hypocrisy.. Him telling her I am wrong, she is not sounding like marbles in her mouth, then telling me the opposite..
Tried to tell her love is NOT always agreeing, rather being honest.
So I have now cried for hours, with a migraine to start the day...On my way to the pharmacy as I am out of my pills, thankfully they are covered 92$ for 6 pills, then pick up McDonald's for my son and I..

I'm sorry to rant, I just need to type it out I guess. Feeling like the crap daughter, but in my heart of hearts I know I care, I just can't do anything more. Perhaps I could visit more, but lately I haven't been 100% myself..

THinking of you too Seaspray, and hoping you are doing as well as possible.

to everyone... Wish I could wrap that around myself today..
So sorry ((((HUGS)))

I know what you mean about family. Mine is very toxic and dysfunctional. The best thing I did for my health was to move 11hrs away. I can maintain a relationship without so much toxicity. Its hard wanting to stay physically and emotionally healthy and still try to be a good family member. I have to remind myself that my kids come first so if my mom is driving me crazy then for my kids sake I back off. Doing what's best for you doesn't make you a bad daughter but a good wife and mom. Vent away thats what we are here for

(((HUGS))) from PA!

Thank you guys (gals)

Dealing with mental illness, along with addiction isn't easy.. Some days I dream about moving, but it is what it is.

SeaSpray: That sounds like a lot of work. Hope you are resting enough when you can

*ugh* Hi everyone:

Last Sunday I fell backwards about 2 feet down while trying to climb in to my DH's truck. I was taking it to work because we had a snow storm and had a couple of feet of snow on the ground.

While trying to break my fall I grabbed onto the weather stripping and ripped it out and broke off a few of my fingernails in the process.

I fell back and landed on my back and fortunately my head landed in some snow but I still was stunned for a moment and just laid there. After a moment I realized that I was basically OK and got up, climbed in to the truck, and went to work.

On Monday I started seeing a big blurry spot in my field of vision as well as random flashes of light way off to the right side of my periferal vision. By Monday night it was really freaking me out.

On Tuesday morning I called my doctors (rheumatologist and primary care) and they referred me to an ophthalmologist. I couldn't get an appt until Wednesday morning. I was freaking out, hoping that my retina wasn't detaching.

So the ophthalmologist gave me a very good exam, 3-4 sets of different eye drops, and told me that my retina looks ok for now, but that the "gel" had detached from the retina, at the back of my eye. He is having me see a retinal specialist next week.

So I didn't go to work Tuesday or Wednesday. Thursday is my regular night off. So now it's Friday and in a few minutes I will be getting dressed to go to work. I feel so crummy, but I have to go in because otherwise I would need a doctors note because it would be 3 days out. I guess I could get a note, but after being out for 3 weeks recently, I'm worried (again) about being fired.

My vision is still blurry and according to the doctor, it won't heal or go away. The new huge blurry floater will always be there now. I work for 6 hours straight, with one 15-minute break, on a computer, taking customer orders over the phone. I wish I could disappear right now. I don't want to let work down, or my DH down, or myself down, but with everything else, and now this on top of it, I really feel like this life is just one big joke.

Oh, and on top of that, there's no food in the house because I haven't gone food shopping this week due to everything (fibro, eyes, IBS, etc), so now I'm going to work and not leaving anything for dinner.

Thanks for letting me vent here. I'm going to get dressed for work now. I just feel so defeated.

My husband has floaters and blind spots from glaucoma and its really frustrating. You get used to it like everything but heck of a thing to get used to. It has been one thing after the other here too But that's for another day. SENDING HEALING THOUGHTS FROM PA

Thanks, tigg

I actually had a pretty night at work last night, even though the computer screen looked blurry. It was steady without being crazy-busy.

DH and DSs managed on their own for dinner last night; I think they had soup and PB&J sandwiches. lol DH and I went food shopping today, and now the house is stocked again, but I ended up with bad muscle spasms in my lower back, a result of the fall from the truck last week.

I guess I will just have to get used to these new floaters/blurry areas, since there is nothing they can do about it anyway. The doctor mentioned that the pressure inside my eyes is high, which I think he said can be an indicator of glaucoma. I was fairly overwhelmed with everything he was telling me at the time. I'm glad that I'll be seeing another doctor next week where I can ask more questions and hopefully remember what he tells me. lol

How is everything going with you? You said it's one thing after another. I'm sorry to hear that



How is everyone else doing?? I hope everyone is hanging in there. :groupghug:

Oh my. I am glad you are basically ok, but sorry to hear about your retina..

I am today, but totally my fault. Went out for happy hour for St. Pat's, and overdid it. I so rarely drink, that it takes me very little. Slept most of the day, and off to bed soon..

I had a weird week. Physio tells me I am ready to go back to work. Following day see my Rheumy, who is NOT onboard. He says that he is reading my testings, and can not fathom me grasping a new job with the permanent memory loss. Also Physio tells me that the insurance Dr drew up a 6 page document on me, and how was my visit with him. I never met him. So my Dr was really not impressed.... So, one says one thing, one another.
Now I am supposed to meet soon with a specialized compnay who helps you with a resume, and whatever else I assume... I will do as I am asked, and let my Dr fight it out with my insurance I guess...> these are all new experiences..

Oh, and he wants me to go for an ultrasound of my kidneys in case any stones are lying around. Specialized bloodwork to make sure they are functioning ok. And overnight EEG, as he thinks I am be suffering atypical sezures... The list is endless.

Tomorrow we start with my Dad coming over. Monday my son will be 17. Not sure how it happened, but I am glad he is having this before his Europe trip the following week.. Then Monday my Mother (MAY) come over for supper and cake...

Well, sending soft and fuzzy hugs to everyone

I just came on and am doing a drive by hello, as well. I'm going in on Thursday for bilateral mastectomy. It has taken them this long to finish testing and working everything out.

I see everyone has had some ups and downs since I was last on here. I hope everyone is doing ok

Hello everyone,

I have not been here for a very long time, in part because the only working computer in our house is my son's laptop.

Sorry I have been away for so long, I have had a really crappy year so far!!

We started off at Christmas with me having hives all over my body. I have had these since then. My whole body inflamed and itchy as all heck! Went to the allergist he said chronic hives. Tested negative for celiac and tested my thyroid and that came up fine.

Dr. said that it is auto-immune related and there may not be a cause that we will ever find. First doc thought I was allergic to my Lyrica, so went off all my meds. Off lyrica, off anti-depressant and off whatever I used to take for sleep.

Then early January my son was hospitalized for depression. He seems to be doing ok now, but it is so worrisome to see my ds so sad and depressed.He is in counselling more often now so hopefully he will continue to do better and better. But it is a day by day journey and struggle for him.

The day he was released, we were back in the ER because he has a kidney stone. So he is undergoing tests for that. So far, he has not had any more pain since then. He will have to have a cat scan to see if it's still there.

I have been really hoping to go to disney this summer for FD but have received no code Since I have barely worked this year I am not sure if we will be going.

It's been a crazy ride, I hope things settle down soon for us. I hope you are all doing well.

Stephanie

Stephanie, so sorry to hear all this..

Hopefully your son is doing better. I had a stone last month, and honestly it was .. Sending positive thoughts to him through everything.

Maybe a code will come out.. I hope so. I honestly have no knowledge of that, only what I read here.. to you and your family.

I am sorry, but this is copied and pasted. I just need ANY type of positive thoughts right now if you can spare. Hugs to everyone

I have noticed a REALLY sore neck all last week, and thought I slept crooked.. I did have a few disks removed, so this can happen easily.. Then I thought, hmmm, it looks like a lump. So typical ME, I waited until Monday and went to the Neuro Hospital. Well, I had a Cat Scan, and then an MRI, and I have another CSF Leak ...

My son is leaving on his Graduation trip to Europe tomorrow for 18 days. I discussed this with the Dr, and he gave me a "pass" so to speak. I DON"t want my son to know this. On Thursday I will go in and repeat these tests, and we will take it from there.

I just can't can't can't have another surgery to fix this.. I just need some good thoughts and prayers if you are so inclined. Thank you
