Hi artpainter ... HA ... you're really using your artistic abilities on here today. yeah

This one is my favorite -> smurf .

Anyhow ... they say with the right treatment, we can get better.

I had the chicken pox and the measles at the same time as a kid, and from then on, my immune system went down.  I get the cold sores too, but Thank God, haven't had shingles yet.  I sure pray I don't ... I hear they are very painful and for some strange reason, I just don't care for PAIN too awfully much. tongue

How did your test go Friday ?   Are you crohns free ?   Or do you have that concern too ? I hope not. 

I try not to think about "getting worse" ... I have to take each day as it comes ... and not expect to feel better or worse tomorrow, but just take it as it comes.  Each day I don't know how I'll feel until 2 hours after I wake up.   It takes that long to wake up and know what kind of day it'll be.   Today was really bad.   New symptom this week.   Heavy pain in eyes up to top of head.  I don't know what it is, but the light or white backgrounds on the computer hurt a lot.   I took two goody powders and my other meds, so the migraine is about gone, but it leaves ya wiped out and drooped.

I'm going to do a FIRST tonite and go to bed before 3 am ... HA.  Even before midnight ... WOW ... maybe the earth will quit spinning when I do.  HA.

Well,  I'd rather think we'll all get better here and not think of getting any worse ... I pray you never get any worse neither.

You take GOOD care of you and I hope to see you here tomorrow.  Unless I sleep for a week,  like I always say I'd love to try.   redface redface redface

Don't Worry ~ Be Happy !!!

Hugs, Ann

:-) eyes eyes eyes    ann, thanks so much for the post;me,too,tired...cfs dragging but can't sleep yet. no, the test , the colonoscopy...after that horrid saline lax...2 little bottles.. all liquids day before;pointless;i hadn't had that test for several yrs. & it didn't come out too well then...there's just too much scar tissue from the 2 old surgeries;he couldn't see the area near whete the ilium was removed, so i have to go in in april when he does his MRIs & have one of those...deeelicious lax, etc all over again.i'm ticked, but it can't be helped;he said i have some of the worst scarring he's ever seen. my mom has it, too, not as bad;she didn't have to have an mri. can they remove some of the scarring, do you know...with laser or something, no surgery;i won't do that again. 3 were enough, thanks. eyes eyes eyes eyes mad yeah eyes enough already with the eyes!! i would love to redesign these stupid things, these emoticons...someone's not-so-imaginative-idea using a smiley face for a basis...geeze, at least use something with some character...but this is probably a non-profit site & these were free(god i hope so!) so, annie, how are yuu doing...i mean when you read this as well as now, of course. you know, the only way to get thru this s... is to tak it one hour or even minute at a time;all we really have as far as time goes anyway is gone before we can think of it at all;i truly believe time is an illusion here on earth;we need it to function.i think and have thought for most of my life since about 11 or so that most of our dimension is illusion;it has to be, considering the teeny weeny particles things are made of...atoms, etc.,...everything is always moving ;all the time;there is no true solidity, illusion, too, & it's essential for us to have it to live here.  Sorry...i tend to drive people nuts, even away with my quantum physics  "speeches". ignore it, ok? i can get too weird  when no one has asked! hard to believe i'm very shy in person, but i am;oh, well....thanks again, girl. you made my day with an actual post;i think you are so kind & caring...hope you're zzzzzzzzzzzzing away comfortably, hope to talk tomorrow, today, rather; i'm going to bed...it's nearly 1 am here;early for me, too.  take care, sweet lady :-) eyes i'm bad!!

Hi artpainter lady.

Sorry I didn't get back here in a timely fashion. But you said that you are like me .... "time is an illusion" ... (:

Can you tell I'm in the Quick Reply box ? Ha. I wish I weren't cuz I love smilies.

I'm sorry that your test came out so bad Friday. Do you post on the Crohn's Board at all.
Gosh, I sympathise with you ... I don't think scarring can be removed, cuz I had some adhesions on my one and only falopian tube that cut my chances down of having babies, but the Doc said, trying to repair them would only cause more scar tissue. But it sounds like maybe you may have surgery in your future ???

I know surgery is not a FUN IDEA for you ... having gone through 3 already, but if will help the things you suffer now, it may be a final answer for some of this stuff, once and for all.

I think only time is rather illusive ... the rest I believe is a reality. I think God made all the Good things on earth. Trees, flowers, animals, people, for us to enjoy ... but He also gave us freewill to do with all of this stuff what we want ... for now.
I love flowers and nature and animals and people. Even the not so nice ones. Don't you ? I think you do, I bet.

You don't drive me nuts at all ... my brother is a physicist .... now he might drive me nuts if he ever got going about his job or something ... Ha ... but not you.
You're just a "thinker". I've always been a heavy thinker too. I like a lot of subjects.

I like talking to you and your divine use of Smilies. I have to busting folders of JUST SMILIES. Ha ... and 13 other folders of other funny and pretty graphics. I love graphics. I'm NOT an artist like you, so I play with graphics in emails and stuff. Weeee, what fun.

Well, listen friend, I'm gonna be praying for you and your Crohns and stuff ... please do whatever your Doc tells you is best for that.
I want you around for me to post SMILIES to. You seem to like them like I do and we both are hoping for new ones ... haaaaaaaaaaaa.

TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOU
and I'll talk to you tomorrow.
Sleep tight friend.
Ann

i believe we are all connected;everything is connected on an atomic and subatomic level, so how can we be separate;how can one thing not affect another? another reason to be kind to each other...and to think before we speak.

sad   Not sure how others get on.....but I had remissions from the condition for years, but lately I seem to be stuck at a real low ebb sad sad   maybe that IS age related .
Also on the sores etc.....I have constant minor bleeds from my nostrils and sore patches inside them .
Even after all these years I am still learning new things that this dratted illness can do to you !!

hi artpainter:   i am responding to the herpes simplex, shingles subject.  i have had them for years, only inside my mouth, tongue etc.  i think that came before the cfs.  ive been sick with cfs and those sores and other things for 13 yrs.  i take suppressive medicine for the herpes attacks every day, it is valtrex.   and altho it does keep the sores at bey.  i always feel sick, just like when i have a sore.   so maybe it is in my system.  my neurologist once said it may be in my central nervous system by now..   i think after listening to you and experiencing the same thing, i will go back to my infectious disease doc and tell him what the neurologist said.   im wondering what is causing this extreme fatigue, the cfs or the herpes.  my immunologist just found out i have low t-cells and very low on antibodies.  i have an immune deficiency.  but she is trying to find out if its in my blood or my cells.  and the blood work takes wks to come back , because they culture it.  what im saying probably doesnt help much, but knowing you are not alone might.   anyway nice meeting you , and if you hear of something that helps you please pass it on , and i will do the same.  joanierav

:-)  hi, joanierav;thanks for sharing your troubles with herpes...i feel less alone. Does the cfs ever make your nose run & pretty much affect all your muucous membranes;sometimes it's the opposite...everything dries out, nose gets stuffy, skin gets dry & weird..like wrinkly or something...my computer keeps whacking out ;cursor,arrow freezes;so if i disappear ......anyway it is real nice to meet jou joanirav, like your name, by the way.let me know what your doc says  ok? tho the longer i have cfs, which is since 1979, the more i realize i probably know more about it than they do;i actually had a doc tell me it wasn't possible that i was having a certain symptom cause he'd never heard of cfs causing it...he should learn, not deny for his ego's sake. oh, well, jerks are all over it seems.all for now...let's stay in touch, ok? you seem cool...thanks again ! lady artpainter (someone called me that & i like it cause i am a girly-girl kind of woman;i like all the girl stuff. later, joanierav tc
