Hey Everyone
 
I got the final on all the blood work today...i don't have anything. THANK GOODNESS!!! No HIV, HTLV or any of the 'flavors' of Hepatitis. All's clear...except there's STILL something going on! Shashi...we need a bigger boat! It's very good to know what u DON"T have, but knowing what u do have going on seems to offer some comfort too. At any rate...still here in limboland...thinking about a yacht...need to get comfy on this ride. I guess i sound a little let down about the neg results, but that's not it at all. I had all but pinned my probs on this HTLV once i did more research on it...but now that's not an issue. I'm honestly glad it's not that, but, as i've said before, if not that then what??

Good to hear that you're OK Rhonda!  But hang in there, you give out great advice and great encouragement.  I forget that you are in limboland like the rest of us.  
 
I know where you are coming from and I'm just starting the roller coaster.  I go through the scenario's in my head about how I'm going to react if the LP comes back positive or negative.  And I think, well darn it, you should be happy if it comes back negative, which I will be and thank God.  But then what?  Why do I get the 'hug', why do I have the lesions, why can't I think any more or remember anything, why do I have the tremors, the numbness, etc? I'm not a hypochondriac (sp?), but I know when there is something wrong with my body since I'm normally extremely healthy.
 
Please smile, you're our sunshine.  I know that is probably alot to be put on your shoulders and why the heck can't you complain like the rest of us.  Well, you can and please do so, but keep with your great outlook and attitude.  It's what alot of us look forward when we read your posts.  tongue

HoorayRhonda!  At least you know what you don't have....now hopefully you will find out what you do.  What a long and overwhelming process!
Big hugs and prayers.  :-)

Great news Rhonda!!  I guess you and I are alike, everything is normal!!  Yeah right!!!!  I have to go tomorrow for bloodwork for hormone levels.  Doc wanted me to go the 3rd day of my cycle.  I have to admit, I was scared this month, 31 days, wow!!  Its been between 22-26 days all the rest of the months.  And heavy, yes, nothing like the rest of the months.  The hormone levels will probably come back normal also.  It sure sucks to be us!!! LOL yeah

Hey Everyone

Wow...Denda. Thank u so much! I think that's the nicest thing anyone's said to me. Not to worry tho, no use in letting it get to me. It seems as tho i'm bound for this mystery journey and along the way i'll learn much and gain more. I'm so glad to have friends like u along with me too. Thanks for being so sweet to me.

Jenny-Yep, we're alike...everything's screwed up and all is normal! I pray u'r bloodwork is normal too...but in reality for u to learn anything it'd have to be abnormal or something else will have to prove abnormal...so what do u say...'hope it's abnormal'? U know what i mean! (kinda dizzy tonight...prob shows in my post) ;) Anyway, i hope and pray all will probe good for u on u'r bloodwork and the answers u need will come soon.

Michelle-Of all people, u know so well how overwhelming this all is!! I hope u'r feeling well and it's soo good to see u here!

Hey Rhonda,
 
     I just love your attitude and outlook on things, you really are an inspiration!  I'm truly happy you don't have any of those things they tested you for, but I know you really want some kind of clue.  Big Hugs to you!

<<BLUSHING BIG TIME>>...awww Kimber, thanks! U know how it is tho...u are just awesome...can't hide anything from us!

Yeah, i'd really like to know something, but at least i'm sure i don't have a tumor or any other of those dreaded things that pop into u'r mind when things go awry. It'll be known in the end, but the end just takes time to get to.

Rhonda,

You have a great outlook on life and problems that arise during the path to figuring out what is wrong. It hurts to hear you are kinda bummed out. We'll figure this thing out and then we will bathe in I told you so! Keep your chin up, sweet friend, and know that we are all here for you! We will prevail and what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.

Take Care,
Lysha

It's frustrating, isn't it Rhonda.  You know something is wrong, but no one can figure out what and all the tests come back normal. 
 
Like you, I don't want a bad diagnosis, but at this point in time, I'd rather have almost ANY diagnosis than to be left in Limbo wondering if I'm imagining everything or losing my mind. (And it's even worse when your family thinks your making stuff up because the doctors can't find anything wrong with you!)
 
Hang in there.  We'll get through this somehow.  :-)


Hugs,

I'm so glad everything has come back normal, so far. Frustrating, I know...but as I remind people, there are lots of diseases and disorders worse than MS...and thankfully you don't seem to have any of them at the moment. A GOOD thing!
...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....
