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..
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.
Hope you can fit in a little rest today-
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!
