 have been rescuing my 21 year old from himself. He rode off into the ditch Saturday night, called me Sunday morning, 3:38 AM. Wanted me to tow him out. I am 150 miles away. RCMP (Canadian Federal Police Agency), landed at his father's front door at 6 Am. the father calls me. I was sick in bed. After contemplating it for a while, I got up and went to the rescue.
 
Ended up putting up with a beligerant 21 year old, and paying $200.00, his car is back on the road. Also, have to find a place tooo live for May 1st. My landlord came into town today, wanted to look around the property.Couldn't get any help from son so ended up cleaning all day yesterday. Inside and out.
 
After supper last night got hit with the most incredible chest pain. Like a hot dagger going right through my heart, front to back, it kept getting worse and worse. Finally got my son to drive me to emerg. After EKG and blood work, they announced; Costochondriasis. gave me super muscle relaxer, and some NSAIDS, which I cannot take. they eat my stomach lining. So released with muscle relaxer and a shot of morphine in my butt, told, "take it easy". Today wasn't much better. Son climbs out of bed at 11:30 demanding drive 150 miles. So I took him. Had to get some room to breathe.More upbeat; got a call back on a house. Have to look at one other in AM, before I can answer. Cross my fingers all this works out to a semi-peaceful existance, someday. Peace.

OMG.... TYNOOOOO!!! 

You poor thing!!!  Good Lord!!  I'm so sorry you're having such a bad time.  It seems you just can't get a break. 

I can totally relate to the Costo problem.  I went through exactly the same thing back in Nov. and its completely terrifying!!!  Of course you don't want to hear any bad new about your heart but its like your almost in shock that it's not your heart.  I wish you could have set still today and just recovered.

Let me know how things are going with the new place.  I'll keep my fingers crossed too.. but not while I'm typing.. it just doesn't seem to work too well.

Take care, Hun..

((Tyno))

What a weekend and more! I can relate to 20 something kids and ex's.

Not to say having costo isn't bad enough, but I'm glad it wasn't heart problems.

I wish you the best of luck on finding a new place.

Hugs,

Wow-what a rotten time you've been having! I am so sorry for all the stress, and I know costo sucks, but I am very glad to hear your heart is o.k.

I will also be praying that the right, peaceful house comes along for you very soon.

Things would be less stressful if you made your son responsible for his own actions. You deserve his help and a break.

Take care, Donnaeil

Bang on, so right, and Thanks everyone. I still don't understand Costochondriasis. The doc was dealing with another lady as well, with chest pain, so didn't have a lot of time to explain. Small hospital, one doc, two nurses and a lab tech. I have to say, I am glad also, it's not my heart, but Costo, sucks. The muscle relaxers help enormously. I'm going to ask my GP for some more of those.

As far as the son goes, I have been working feverently to get him into truck driving school. He is due to start, May 25th. If he doesn't do this for himself, I will law down the law and lay it on thick. So, Thank-you for all your help and support.

Hi Tyno and sorry to hear about your trip to the ER, but happy it was not your heart. I do not get the Costo (knock on wood) but from all the posts I read on it, it sounds miserable!

Your life will settle down some once you find a place to live-  I hope everything works out with son starting truck driving school- most of them grow up eventually!

I know it is very tough being alone and trying to get things done, like the clean-up you had to do. I have to do everything by myself also- My 17 yr. old does help, but sometimes it's more trouble than it's worth. We have been slowly doing the spring clean-up around the yard and believe me it is slow, so I understand how you must feel trying to get everything done fast and how the body must feel.  sad    

Hope you can fit in a little rest today- 

Jill

Wow Tyno it never ends does it??? I'm glad it wasn't your heart with all you have been through. I pray you get a nice little house and your son goes off to school and you will find peace and quiet for at least awhile.
 
Have you used lidoderm patches??? They work well for ribs.

Wow Tyno, I'm so sorry you are having such a rough time.  When it rains, it really does pour.
 
I had my first bout of costo last winter, and I thought I was having heart trouble too.  It is sooo painful.  I hope you feel better soon, and good luck with your son.

Sorry to hear all that Tyno.  At some point kids just have to start functioning on a more adult level.  We've been going thru that too and I sure don't have any easy answers. 

We talked with our daughter to try and ease her into the changes that come with my health issues.  Really, there are all kinds of workable alternatives but she didn't want to work with us on that.  I think she'll be getting a part time job and staying up at school.

In spite of our best efforts, it seemed like a confrontation was inevitable.  I don't know.  Maybe it's best to just get it over with?  Most people are resistant to change and sometimes need considerable "encouragement" to do it.

Hang in there!

Since I was
hit by the telephone truck in 2002, things have just been getting harder and harder. I had Fibro before that but that was the trigger to force me into poverty, and disability. prior to that it wasn't unusual for me to work 16 hour days. I had two kids in school (high school) at that time, was laid up for over a year, then had to wait two more years to get compensation from the Bell company's insurance. By that time I was so far down in the hole, I lost my house. I still have my dog from that time and since she's such a great companion, I went out two years ago and got another, smaller dog, so the big ole girl could teach him the ropes. So, I have two dogs. Anyone ever try to rent with dogs. It's like you said; "Ï have leprosy".
Some landlords won't even answer your requests, some are quite rude. So, I ended up taking that house which belongs to the crazy lady who likes to "pop in", all the time. I will have to set firm boundrys. Then, after driving over there today to put down my deposit and 1st month's rent, I came home to find a reply from a couple who have the "perfect" little 1 bedroom house with a hugh yard for the dogs. 1 bedroom, too small for son. It would have been perfect. isn't it ironic? I have responded to close to 300 ads. No Dogs!, then I compromise on the house with the "jack in the box" landlady, and after paying for that house, I get this response from these dog lovers, with a hugh property, for less money, in an ideal location. Cést la vie. Note to self: have more faith, wait, don't panic and follow your gut feeling. Oh well, maybe they'll reject me yet. Otherwise, I will be getting lot's of exercise as dogs will have to be walked several times a day, whereas, had I waited, just 1 more day, oh well, no use crying. The stress, oh the stress. I have to "go to base" for a couple of days, to recuperate from stress of it all. Son is still moving (cold molassas going up hill) towards his Trades training. He will maybe come home to tired to argue and fight. Then after 3 months, pray he will get up for school everyday, he will be "on the road" more than home, maybe he will decide to reimburse Mom for her savings which went to paying his fines, and his fees and buying his gas, and all those groceries. But, I doubt it. He'll find a woman or four to spend it on. OK, the better news: pdoc says I can stop punishing myself for not being able to work, and go on CPP (like Social Security). I just have to get to the paperwork. Been so busy bailing son out of his probs, and looking for decent housing, I come home exhausted. Wiped. Sometimes I feel like I won't make it back home when driving around doing all this stuff. Thank-you all. PS, those muscle relaxers knock me on my butt but sure do help the Costo.

Tyno,

Is there any way you can get the $ back from the place you don't really want? If you haven't yet signed a lease (or if your lease is month to month) I would think you would be able to back out and go for the place you really want.
