I'm here and ok this am. ((((((((((((((((())))))))))))))))))! Mega hugs to everyone here! And YES, of course, I cried when I read your responses this morning. To have this place to come to when I feel my light is dimming is a lifesaver. I've always operated on the thought that when one door closes, another one opens, and you all are my other door. You raise me up. Hubby is a good man, Bear, like you said. He just doesn't know how to handle me sometimes and is smart enough to know when to flee the countryside. The moaning and gnashing of teeth was too much for both of us yesterday. He did ask me to accompany him to lunch at our fav cafe though. I have to give him a gold star for that.
Can't remember who was talking of 12 hour days (fibro fog) but take care of yourself. I'm going to have some of those this week too and then a week of vacation.
Just too much frustration last week and it was more than I could handle. I have an employee that mimmicks everything I'm going through. Last year I had carpal tunnell surgery and she HAD to schedule something for herself as not let me get "ahead" of her. She had some varicose veins removed during the busiest week of our year, Rodeo Week. Then couldn't work any extra hours for me as she was recooping. I ended up with staph and in the hospital for a week. I can't remember it all right now but everything I've had done, she's found a suitable "like" thing to do. I buy a t-shirt, the next day she has the same one. I get my hair cut, the next day she's gone to the same hairdresser. Somehow she's convinced her doc to prescribe the SAME MEDS I'm on. It's creepy. I had that skin cancer removed so she made an appointment with the dermatologist to have all her moles removed. I told her she is a nut case last week. I also gave her the name of my psych doc and told her to give her a call as she needs a lot of help! Has anyone ever seen "Single White Female"? She's been with us for many years and I think she wants my life!!!!??????
Don't know where all this came from as I try to ignore all this crazy stuff. But it's getting to be too much for me. I really am a pretty sensible/stable human being most of the time. Physical limitations put a damper on eveything. I'm laughing now at all this. It's like a book no one would believe. At least I'll have all next week to take a step back and look at everything and make some changes. Some big changes.
Bear, it sounds like you're a real hands-on Dad! That's hard work and real accomplishment on the Cub's part to have a band and some real gigs! Glad you're involved in it.
Going to check out the thyroid?feet thread. Thanks for listening to the ramblings of a madwoman. Boo

Hey all - what's up with this gloomy weather everywhere in July!?
I hope everyone gets better soon. Bear, will you be able to travel in 2 weeks to the states if your hip is hurting so bad? I checked out your son's My Space page - pretty cool!!! Boo, I hope things start looking brighter soon - don't ever apologize for venting! Yalinda, get some sleep! Ugh, I know how the lack of sleep just makes the pain ten-fold! Mom - good luck with the fatigue meds, I am assuming it is a super-vitamin of some sorts?Don't forget H20 - DRINK A LOT. Actually, I have been lagging on my own water intake and I'm feeling it. Erin - glad your nursing skills came in handy and oooh, that poor little boy!!! hope you are enjoying yoru time at Joe's.
My moanin' is that my hands still hurt. My chest still hurts to breathe deep - is it this lingering congestion or the arava? One has to wonder. The rash on my cheeks there but better, however, now there is one growing above my tailbone pretty bad. I see doc soon. And the little buggers...but I'm creeped out and upset enough about them tonight....so I won't go on...
