Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Jolene.
Hmmm...maybe I should ask for Tramadol. I have a few more pounds I'd like to lose!
JoAnn, are your hubby's legs very swollen and edematous? When my feet, ankles, and calves were like that, they "wept," but no actual blisters. If not enough fluid is being eliminated via urine, it has to go somewhere. Speaking of which, with the 90+ heat we're having and the Lasix I'm on...I sweat buckets outside.
BTW, I'm a cat person myself (have 2, both 18), but the feelings are the same as La Bunna and Joelene about their dogs.
Hello Joann!! Just wanted to say a Howdy! hopefully Jerry is holding his own, thanks to you. the blisters are something new and different. I am making a note of it...
mr. wonderful has been great and active and back to his old self up until a couple of weeks ago...he is back at the bottle. so i am sad.
but i cannot control it..am working on me and not him this time. anywho, i check in here everyday to see if you have posted. And i just wanted you and jerry to know that you have been a light...an incredilbe light of knowledge and symmetry that makes me feel like i am not alone. mr. wonderful refuses aa...so i told him the other night...baby, I've seen this movie before...pardon me while i check out...i love him madly in the morning, but by the end of the day he is not the same man..
anywho, just wanted to say howdy! and I think about you two daily and you are not alone.
dont worry all is ok having trouble w/ computer may have to get new one i will call u this weekend
hi to everyone miss you all alot
I was so glad to hear from you. You are absolutely right about nothing you can do. I do remember hanging on to the mornings!!! Its been so long and are lives are so wrapped up in this disease I had forgot about wanting to have hubbie around in the mornings!!! I did learn at Alanon that trying to get them to quit drinking is a form of control. If you hae a video camera you should try to video him in the evenings. They do not like to see themselves like that. Just keep working on you. It does wonders. Please stay in touch.
Rainbeau, are you going to Al-Anon? It may help you cope with your husband's drinking. CoDA (Codependents Anonymous) also has very helpful meetings.
Hugs to all,
