sad  Hi all - had my t-spine and c-spine (with & w/o contrast) done last night and was miserable.  Goodness!  An hour and a half of lying completely still in the MRI was not a fun way to spend my evening.  Kudos to all of you that have had this done!  I would have another spinal over that again, well except the headache that came after the 2nd one. smurf   The MRI tech told me nothing, but did 3 'extra scans' on specific areas.  That's all I know, so we'll see in a couple days. 
 
Still feeling really depressed about life in general, too busy to do much complaining or whining until my son's graduation party is done and over with next weekend.  Then maybe I'll sit down and have a good cry and feel better.  Don't have the time right now.. sad    Thanks for listening.  Talk to you all later.

Hey Denda

Wow...kudos to U!! As i recall..u work all day..then u went thru that!! WOW!! I hope they can get some answers to u soon. Be sure to ask for copies. Another thing...i always am able to get a copy of the report as soon as it's ready...not after the doc gets it. U may ask the facility who did the scans for u for a copy as soon as it's done. Usually that's within 24 hours.

Don't feel down friend. I"m so sorry u'r having a rough go of it, but hang tough and lean on us here as much as u need and want. We're right here for u.

Hey Denda,

I am so sorry!!! You are not in a good place right now.  I am thinking about you.  You deserve to feel good right now to celebrate getting your son through school.  This is a big deal for you and for him.  I am proud of both of you. 

Take time to take care of yourself.  Have that cry if you need it.  We will be here to support you. 

Hopefully you will get some answers soon.  Take special care of yourself. 

Love and prayers,

 


Gretchen

Hi Denda,
 
    Thats a long time to lay still.  Hopefully the results will be in soon and you'll get some direction to everything going on.  Congratulations to your son, that's so exciting!  Hang in there, focus on one day at a time, and we'll always be here for you.

Thank you all for the support. I am taking it one day at a time. So far have cried just once per day. :o( But I'm sure it's just everything going on right now in my life with both my kids leaving in August at the same time (Like they couldn't have planned this any better so MOM could adjust to it. :o)) I'm getting paid about 1/2 of what I was paid last year at this time since my pay is based on profits and I work for an automotive supplier in Michigan (which is down in the dumps right now). The computer side of it (what I do) is still quite busy, but most of the time I'm dizzy, shaking, numb or my legs feel like they are floating away under me so I sit at my desk and thank the good Lord I have 2 guys that work for me that do most of the physical work. Hoping I'll be put in some direction in the next couple of days on the whole MS thing. I thought I was prepared for anything, but now I don't know..

I'm now on the downhill on the Accelerated Degree Program I'm in and only have 2 semesters to go, so that's heating up and getting harder. I'm having difficulty keeping up w/the reading (commented on this a couple months ago), I have an order in for the books for next semester to be bought via tape also, with hopes that will help. I'm having issues with getting my darn house refinanced right now ($#&% Michigan economy). My husband wants to sell MY dream house we built ourselves 3 years ago and 'downsize' and move away to a different state (he works in the home building industry (also in the dumps in Michigan)) UGH!!!

I'm hoping after my son's graduation party (200+ people coming to my house) and my house gets appraised properly this 2nd time (1st appraiser knew nothing of the type of home we have (Handcrafted Log) and the area and WAY under appraised it), I'll get feeling better and can tackle the hubby wanting to move thing by taking the bull by the horns, like I normally would have done by now and put the issue to rest. Right now I can't even bring up the issue w/o starting to cry.

If I can't go a day w/o crying after a month or so, I will need to either go talk to someone or get on something and I don't want to do that, but will, just to get some order back to my life. Thanks for letting me vent everyone. Not that EVERYONE doesn't have their own issues to worry about, it just felt good to get it all out. Sorry for dumping on everyone.

Denda,

Wow!!!  I would not wait a month.  That is too long to feel this way or to let this go on.  The usual rule of thumb is 2 weeks.  So consider cutting your time in half.  You do not need to go on feeling this bad.  There are excellent meds out there that can help and maybe some psycho therapy along with it will have you feeling like your old self again.  Sit that man down and tell him what you told us.  You need to NOT make any major life changes right now.  It is simply too stressful for someone in your shoes.  Moving (especially out of state) is extremely stressful and throw on top of that all you are going through and you have a recipe for disaster. 

Take special care and again, don't let this go on.  You deserve to feel better real soon. 

Love and prayers,

 


Gretchen

Hi Denda,

I have to say I agree with Gretchen! I sounded like you a couple of years ago......and resisted taking meds, but when I did it was amazing......back to my normal self again....and thinking...."why didn't I do this months ago!!!!!!"

You do deserve to feel better!

Take care, and let us know how you're getting on!

Hey Denda

Gosh friend...go with what Gretchet and Kas are telling u. U do deserve to feel good and u can or at least have a shot at it. I have been down before friend. It hurts in so many ways. U can't function and can't care for u'rself. U muddle thru u'r days accomplishing what u must, but having no joy or peace in it. U need and deserve much more now...not a month from now when things may be much much worse for the wait. Please take good care of u'rself...no one else can do that for u, but all others (all of us here included) will suffer loss if u don't. I agree with Gretchen on the big decisions too..don't make any now. Tell u'r husband how u'r feeling and at least that u need more time on this large decision...put it off til u'r up to that. U have so many here who care about u Belynda. Please don't feel bad alone without reaching out to us. We're all here for u and we want to see u back to u'rself...and i know u haven't been u'rself for awhile now. Take such good care of u'rself and lean on us all u need.
