Hello everyone...Thanks for thinking about me. Not only have I been in pain and dealing with the WD's but this morning I spent a good part of 2 hours in the bathroom puking....Now I have a stomach virus. What the Hell else is going to happen? I know that the 9th is only a day and a half away...and I know that I will feel much better after I go to the pharmacy...But, unfortunatley the office visit won't be one of those in and out ones...I have to get Supartz injected in my knees and some other things done that day...I wish I could just go in and say "yes, yes, ok, see ya next month".
Thursday will be my favorite day from now on....So, thanks for all of your thoughts...I know I have been a whiny, selfish, bratty person for the past few weeks. But, I swear this will never happen again. Ever, for any reason. From now on my pills will be locked in a safe in the bottom of my closet...and I will take the advice and only keep a few days worth on my person at a time.
I actually feel ok today...other then the pain. I still had a few left for the last days before appt. so I am ok.
I will post again later...
Thanks Dear...It is really nice that you are so close. Believe me, if I had felt better I would have had you come over. Maybe we can get together sometime soon...maybe have lunch? I know that I have been a PILL lately...and I wouldn't have been able to get through any of this without the helpof my family at HW...Especially YOU. If you ever need me, for anything, I am always just a phone call away.
Thursday is soooo close. I really hope nothing hapens at the appt. I have had nightmares of them telling me that I can't take anything for pain ever again....I'm not sure what reason they gave me, but that would suck!! So, wish me luck that it goes well...
I will keep in touch..
