Sheryl,

I hate to hear that you've been feeling so bad and that your diabetes is not doing so well. It sounds like you have a good PCP, and since she's run a Lupus and RA panel, your rheumy will have those results when you go see in three weeks. Will your rheumy also send his report back to your PCP? I always harp on having doctors share their reports.

I know waiting is hard and I'm glad you got some more pain meds to keep you going. Don't worry about not posting here. Most of us tke time off when we're feeling real bad, but we all keep a connection with each other. I'll be thinking about you and post whenever you feel a need to vent or ask questions. If we don't hear from you, we'll be anxious to know how your appointment with the rheumy goes.

I send my love to you too....

Thanks Pat,

Yes I do have a great PCP and they will share reports and work together I am insistent about that as well I believe it to be very important. She listens when you talk I just new my diabetes was out of whack by the way I was feeling and the way my blood sugars where bouncing around.so she took necessary test and the results where there in front of us in minutes.

We just moved to Texas from Washington State a few months ago so don't know a lot of people yet. So when I stumbled across the forum It was a gift from God just as was finding the right PCP was. Stter run for now..o it is a comfort just reading the posts and knowing everyone is out there. What state are you in. Pat?

Has anyone heard from Carol? I haven't seen any posts from her lately?

Well bettter run for now

Blessings to you,

Sheryl

I'm right next door to you in Oklahoma. So is Carol, and you're right, she hasn't been on the forum in a few days. We have had rain nearly every day this summer and the rain and humidity are so bad for her lungs, but she usually posts even when she isn't feeling well. I'll ask to see if anyone else has heard from her.

Hello Pat,

I am in Greenville, Texas about 50 miles east of Dallas. Where in Oklahoma are you and Carol?

Thanks for the update on Carol...Hopefully the rain will go away soon. No rain today for us. We left Seattle, Washington area to get away from rain.....

Carol if your reading this I will keep you in my prayers and hopefully the rain will go away so you will not have so much trouble with your lungs.....


God's Blessings to you both....

Hi Sheryl, I'm so sorry you are hurting so bad. It's good you have a pcp that actually listens to you. That seems to be the exception instead of the rule these days. I'm sorry I havn't posted much lately. I've been struggeling with some depression and ran out of pain meds. I can't get them refilled until next week. I read the posts but by the time I sign in I'm out of energy or my "fog" can't think of a dog gone thing to say.
I live almost in Kansas. The closest town to me that sticks out on a map is Ponca city. It's about 13 miles from Kansas. right off the I 35 corridor. I wish I was at the bottom of the state so I was coser to my lupie friends.
Get better my friend and be carful with the pain meds.
love ya

Carol,

So nice to hear from you.....I am sorry you are struggling so much right now and that you ran out of pain meds and have to wait until your appt to get more . I have some good and bad days. today isn't so good . My husband and sister in law went to Oklahoma to 1st casino outside of Texas but I stayed home to rest just wasn't up to the long car road. My diabetes is out of wack right now and that ads to my ability to function today ...I am gonna say I struggle with depression as well and it is tough...Please take care of yourself and know that you have a friend in Texas.....

love Sheryl

Sheryl,

I'm so happy to hear that you're enjoying the forum, but on the other hand am worried about you. If you had to go to the er last night you must have really been suffering. I do hope you feel better today. If not, let us know.

Love,

Pat
