Glad you could join us if only briefly. Hate to say it but it is true. My first thought when I read your post that you were going to be gone for awhile, was, "What will I do without her?" But I am also glad that you know when to back up, or back off. Knowing one's boundaries and limits are most of the battle. Hope that this vacation away from this forum will help you to see where you are going and how you will get there.
Yesterday I took the journal of pain to my rheumy. I was such a wimp at the office visit with him, and forgot and left the pain journal at home. did not remember it until I was in his office waiting to be seen. but he has them now. and this is thanks to you and others for encouraging me to write this pain journal. Did too much yesterday probably but it hasn't hurt me yet. two doctor's offices, and the diagnostic center, a n d picked the kids up from school.
Take care Ginny. We ae all probably waiting until you can return to us, but take all the time that you need to take. Be well, and know you are missed and cared for.
p.s. I must have been typing this while you were typing. Obviously you type faster than I do. No there is nothing wrong with taking a narcotic if you need it. That's why the doctor gave them to you. Plus being in pain is not going to help you with your mind frame.

I pray that my book will bless you. I started dialysis in the hospital in September and now am going 3 days a week to an outpatient clinic, for 4 hours each session. I am trying to get myself in shape for a transplant. Please know that you will be in my prayers. I'm so glad you had a talk with your mother and she understands; or is at least making an effort to understand. I know on the other side of this situation you will be okay and probably even more of a help to others facing similiar situations. (((((((((hugs))))))) JUdy
