Hi family, just wanted to say sorry i have not been round as much as usual- a huge thankyou to Kitt for taking roll call for me. Im extremely unwell and am struggling to cope with working 5 days a week- just want to collapse from exhaustion, so i have not been around heaps.
 
My physical illness is all consuming. At the moment im battling Glandular fever (mono) Fibro flare, reactive arthritis, blocked sinuses, bronchitis, a pinched nerve in back causing tremendous pain and discomfort as well as rupturing ovarian cysts and anemia. Im in an acute state of really poor health at the moment. Its hit me hard in the last 2 weeks.
 
I have been overwhelmed by my chronic health problems recently, and when i struggle to cope, i withdraw and hide from the world and feel sad and sorry for myself.
 
Im so sorry i havent been round to contribute more, i hope you all know just how much i love you all- my apologies for my absence, i will make an effort to ignore the pain and fatigue and get on here and help out as best i can.
 
Much love to you all- seriously- you mean the world. turn

Maz,

You never have to appologize for being ill and know we understand.  You are truly a member of this wonderful family and I know you are feeling really awful both physically and mentally.

You are  human sweetie,  you will make it through and I have you in my prayers daily.

I wish I could take some of the illness away but all I can do is offer you my hugs and friendship..........and be here for you.

Hugs and Luv

Kitt

Hey L.A.S. :)

It will be okay my friend. . . You have been through so much lately and still being able to work and come onto HW makes me admire you a lot. Heck, I couldn't even come on hardly yesterday just for a simple headache! I really pray and hope you conquer all this darn stuff that has been attacking you and don't feel bad when you take some time for you. You deserve it and you are a part of this family. . . That will not change :)

Take care and get some rest!
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)

Maz, your description of what you're going through makes me cringe. You poor thing! I hope you get rest and relaxation. You'll feel better soon. Come on here when and if you need to talk about it some more. I'll be thinking about you!

Thankyou all so much!

i have made an appointment to see my doc and get some sort of pain management plan going, because my whole body is aching from head to toe- sensitive to touch. it hurts my muscles when i lift my arms to wash my hair- i cant do it and i dont have the strength too either. i feel bruised and swollen, and my whole head is ultra congested, sinus is bad and this is the worst fibro flare ive had in months- having glandular fever doesnt help. I have a bronchial infection and my lungs ache and my throat is torn up from all the coughing. i can handle one illness at a time, but when 3 or 4 hit at once, i get overwhelemed. my sleep is fractured and unrefreshing- i keep dragging myself into work and do my best to help my students in any way i can. but im like a zombie, im that tired.

I was scheduled to have a repeat of my sinus surgery in April, but its been pushed back to june. although i have had multiple surgeries, any surgery is dangerous as i dont have a key clotting factor and end up bleeding out on the table and needing transfusions. I also need more surgery on my ovarian cysts, and diathermy on my endometriosis. I have private health insurance, but i stilll have to pay the gap, so i am saving like crazy, which means working like crazy, even though my body hates me.

I feel fragile and sore and sad and overwhelmed- but i KNEW my HW family would understand and i do feel bad that i have not been around as much but every fibre of my being is screaming at me, revolting against me- its like my impaired immune system attacks ITSELF. how dumb is that?

I love and treasure you all- Aries, Kitt, Sam, Junebug- thankyou for understanding and for caring. Im not anxious or panicky at the moment at all, just wiped out emotionally as the physical pain and fatigue and other symptoms take hold. I AM anxious about work & money...but thats another story.

I love you, i really do- my 2nd family,

Maz XX

:(... Ahh, Maz, I hope some of this stuff lets up on ya, so you can get at least a little relief. :(..
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Im really struggling. cry

Thanks for all the support, means the world to me.

I am in strong, physical pain and its doing my head in. I'm not a cryer- but i just want to sob right now. Work is hard, but high school teaching was never going to be the easy option, so i just need to suck it up and hang out for the weekend. My body cant take much more. I ache. I hurt.
