I am here at the library and I thought I would post because I know it has been a couple days. Things in my life are no better in fact every day that passes, something more goes wrong. The hematology doctor may want to order a bone marrow before my appointment because of waiting list. I guess a blood disorder doesnt go anywhere except into lymph glands so what is the hurry, right? I keep telling myself that I wish it would have been me to pass and not my sister but know might be the right time for me to understand what my sister went through. I guess I am not scared of cancer because I have seen it for many years and in fact, I wished that I could have my sister's cancer instead of her because she was so full of life and I hated everyday.
My health is scary and I think that my body is finally giving up and letting all the meds I have ever taken destroy my functioning.
The sun is out and I wish it would rain.

Hi Teresa,

I am sorry that you are feeling so badly. I hope that you feel better soon. You have been through more than I can imagine, I hope that things take a turn for the better for you.

I am glad that you are able to come to the library to post on the forum. It is nice that you have that opertunity, though I miss your regular posts when you had a working computer.

Keep trying Teresa, there comes a point where things have to change, because all that could have gone wrong already has. I hope things start looking up for you.

Hugs, Karen

Dear Teresa , I'm very sorry your having such a hard time , please don't give up on yourself things will turn for the better .Try to remember positive thoughts are best and that a thought is just that a thought .Its not reality , things can go well as easily as they can go wrong so why not think they'll go well ?Its a 50/50 chance so try to train yourself to see the bright side of every situation , it helps . Best of luck and please keep us posted as to how you are .Have you tried keeping a journal ?

Thanks everyone for the kind words. My depression is about the same and I did schedule my appointments with my doctors. I actually have to see another specialist for cognitive brain studies. This will give positive information that more invasive tests are needed to diagnose a brain disorder. I see that doc on 4/15 and I see the hematologist on 4/22. I look at these appointments and wonder how much more in debt I can possibly be.
I have received terrible news regarding 2 of my children. It is extremely personal and it has made me wonder if I can make it another day. Just seems that as days pass, something more awful is happening, where I used to smile because of my FAITH. I still have my FAITH but I wonder for how long, I am so tired of feeling like this. Noone understands and it is extremely trying when you feel you have noone to talk to about anything.
I still havent been able to see my girlfriend in Florida but I try to talk to everyday. She is always homesick and there is nothing I can really do for her. There was an actual homicide down the street from both our homes and I told her that she is probably in a safer place than I am at this point. I live in an area where there is little crime but the past year there have been 3-4 with 3 blocks of my home. Believe it or not, I am not afraid like everyone else is.
Well, I only have a couple minutes so I hope everyone is doing ok.

Hi Teresa,

I am sorry for the problem with your children. I hope that everything works out okay. I know that these are trying times, but keep hanging in there. Things have a way of working out.

That is scarey that there was a homicide near you. I hope that the crime does not move any closer to you. But I guess things could happen anywhere at anytime, so we never know. Just being in the wrong place at the wrong time could happen to any of us. So I don't blame you for not being scared. But it would be a little unnerving. Though we can't live in fear. It makes no sense to worry about it. That only makes us more insecure and depressed.

I agree with Mikel. Try to think of the good things that are going on in your life, as trivial as they may seem, they are important to focus on. I hope that you have some good things going on. Even if it is as simple as the sunshine. It is important. It is sunny here today and I am happy for that. I am going to go for a walk with my dog here shortly.

I hope that you have a good day today. Take care, and keep us posted.

Hugs, Karen

Hi everyone~
Just wanted to let everyone know that things are about the same in my life.  Trying to keep busy on these sunny days so I dont get too depressed.  I am on a new dose of med for nighttime so I think that maybe my fatigue could be due to that.  While researching for my appointments I found some information relating to my narcolepsy and depression.  It is a gene referred to HLA-DR4.  It is a gene that only narcoleptics have and can actually play a part in the autoimmune system.  Whether that is good news or not will be up to the doctors.  I get really discouraged when I find information about my health that maybe should have been found by medical professionals.  Unfortunately, that is how it happens when noone can fight for your health but you.
 
I did however do some body work on my car.  It entailed stripping, priming and painting my front bumper and I will say that I did a pretty good job for not being a auto body professional, lol.  See I even laughed:)  Being single in this world makes you cross-train for life.
 
Take care and thanks for always being here.

Hi Teresa,

You do sound a little better. I am happy for that. I am proud of your car painting skills. I would be so scared to do that. I am glad that it came out good.

I have chronic fatigue, which to me is kind of like narcolepsy. I take adderall for that. Maybe you could try something like that. Talk to your doctor. There might be something out there that could help you.

I hope that you are having a good day today. Keep us posted as to what is going on.

Hugs, Karen
