Thank You Donna, that is so sweet of you. By the way I got 50 points at walmart. I would have done better but the floor was too slick to get alot of traction. I had to slide into them with the back of the thing. LOL. It's a good thig they were all by the pharmacy so they were able to get help right away! LOL. You know I'd never do that. But you were in my thoughts at the time. Thanks for cheering me up!
Des, yes it does help coming here and getting support. I just wish I could come here and say Hey I had a great day once in awhile. But I really think I will get much more help with this new rheumy. My pcp is not to keen on giving me anything more than plaq and pred. It's giving me somthing to really look forward to. If he doesn't treat me right I am sending in the troops so I hope you are ready when I call LOL.
Omega you said a mouth full. There is hope. That is the best medicine isn't it! Thank you so much for the encouragement. I appreciate you soooooooo much! I can take my pred at my discretion. Mostly because I have so many lung problems it opens my brochial tubes. But like everyone else here I really really hate the stuff! Did I mention I really really hate the stuff? love ya
and my dear sweet Pat! what would I do with out ya? You are always such an encouragement to me. Even knowing all the things you are going thru with you and your hubby you still never stop being there for me. I hope your hubby knows how special you are. The pain in your foot sounds similar. I actually noticed that there is a nerve or somthing that is moving around and swollen on the top of my foot. Never knew it was there before. A friend of mine is bring me over some crutches. The more I walk on it the more it hurts. I hate the idea of crutches though because of the already sore muscles in my arms. So I don't know what would be worse. You'll have to come up we can go whipping around walmart together!
Love all you guys thank you so much!
Hi Sheryl and BHK, I really appreciate you ladies. You make me feel so much better about myself. I don't know what I'd do without ya.
Sheryl Yes I did get my pain meds. But you should have seen me tonight. I got caught outside in a rain storm. The lightening was booming all around. I was running for the truck on one foot. It was pathetic! LOL. I just want you to know that the your prayers mean so much to me. I truly believe that's what gets me thru. I'm glad to hear you are getting a handle on your diebeties. I have a friend that has it. She was over the other night. I never have sugar in my house so I had to mix up some salad dressing/mayonaise type stuff and a few other things I had handy. It was discussing watching your eat it. But it worked. I noticed you have PTSD I won't ask you what from but I have what is called secondary PTSD that I got from my husband. He was 100% disabled from vietnam with it. I just 10 feet in the air when the phone rings or someone drops something or I get so anxious it's just awful. If you ever want to talk feel free to email me.
BHK, one of these days your gonna have to tell me what that stands for! Just kidding but everytime I write BHK I shake my head LOL. I have never thought of you as being a whiny person. and about the being strong NOT. Just ask my dog. I mope around here all the time. He just comes over and lays his head on my lap wanting me to play with him. Boy I'm glad he's not my child. I'd feel just aweful. It's people out there with the families that are strong to me. It doesn't take much to do whatever I want when ever I want. Well I do force myself to wash the dishes or do my laundry once a week weather I need it or not. Oh my goodness i'm depressing myself again. I am such a slug! LOL. Anyway you guys have just made my day! I just love ya all to death. I got a plaque in the mail from a friend of mine the other day. It said A girlfriend is a sister you choose. I have a whole family here
You two take care of yourselfs someone in oklahoma loves ya!

Hi Kristen and Hippi, sorry I didn't respond yesterday I was kind of out of it from the pain meds. I hadn't taken any in awhile and I wasn't used to it.
Kristen I'll try to answer your questions and no you weren't driving me crazy LOL. . But you must be fun at parties!
Ok my PCP is my osteo because she is a D.O. as well. I just had my bone density scan done 2 months ago. I'm still about the same as I was. My doctor actual said that we fracture our bones every time we step on them but they are just microscopic fractures. Weird huh? but no this feels my like a nerve/legiment or whatever. Painpills aren't doing anything but giving me a headache and making me depressed. I know that pain in the hands/knukles. feels like bone spurs! Yowza! Thank you for answering my post. You all have helped me more than you can imagine.
Hippi, You're right hippi about the fossilized rheumy. You know I never got a bill from him. I think he may have died of old age or somthing! Either that or he forgot. I'm sorry you are having foot problems. Didn't you mention months ago that you bought a cane? I think that was right after I joined. Boy if that was you I would be in a state of shock since I can't rember what happened 5 mins ago. LOL. Thank you for your prayers they continue to give me strength.
Lots of love to you both
Hi hippi I should have known I remembered it wrong. LOL. For goodness sakes don't get a cane than! Maybe we can steal ya one of those carts from walmart!
