I guess I can say that this week has been one of the worst weeks that I can remember.
First I find out that I am a Diabetic and that my Dr. thinks I am having trouble with my
Then today I get a phone call from my sons father...my sons Aunt Julia was murdered
by her boyfriend last night...He shot her in the face with a shotgun!!! And he's claiming
it was SELF-DEFENSE!!
My son, Tyler is only 15. He has major issues with my CP and his father is almost a ghost to him anyway...Now he has to deal with this!!
Why does it seem like nothing good is happening? Why can't something like I win the Lottery happen?
Now I am sitting up at 1:13 am and I have to be at the hospital at 7:00 am for a HIDA Scan that is supposed to last 2 hours...and I can't even drink anything until after the test.
I know, I know...I shouldn't whine or feel sorry for myself...I mean, at least I'm alive... It's a great deal better than most people.
I started my Diabetes medicine (Metformin) on Monday night...and it seems like I'm going through withdrawls every night since then. It's almost like it's sucking the methadone out of my body!!! I have been in more pain then I have been in at least a year, I can't sleep, I am sweating, I am aching, my toes are numb on the other foot as well, and I'm miserable!!
I'm supposed to go to the PM Doc on Monday but I called to change it to this week so we can go to Knoxville for the funeral on Saturday... I hope they call me back today and tell me to come on in. I need to know the results of my MRI also...
Thanks for letting me vent...I appreciate it.
We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

Really....Thank You very much. It really helps to know I have so many people (family) who care.
Things are pretty bad for the entire family, especially for my son (Tyler). That was his only aunt and they were really close when he was little. He hasn't seen her much lately but they talked on the computer.
On a health note: My gallbladder is fine, but I have to have an endoscopy this Thurs. My diabetes is slowly getting under control...I mean my numbers are going down, very slowly...I think that medicine is helping already but I still have a long road ahead.
Thanks again for the support, it means so much...
My thoughts to everyone in need.
