Im home! and not a moment too soon! im only 28- (29 next month) but i am covered in bruises from:
And so forth.. my pneumonia has not gone away and due to my Immune disorder, the CMO told me it may take weeks, months even to fully recover. Im still coughing, I still have an elephant sitting on my chest, but at least Im in my own HUGE bed with no more IV lines, injections etc. My Fibro has also kicked into overdrive. I have 10 days left of school holidays- I have 60 essays to mark and I am so tired but Im finding sleep difficult due to pain.
Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for your well wishes, I hope to be back on the board helping others out asap!
Love, Maz XX
thanks SO much guys- just frustrated cos recovery is painfully slow and i dont feel like i had any rest these school holidays, i will be going back to work with the pneumonia monkey on my back, which sucks. all i want to do is sleep, but i cant. driving me spare! oh well, you gotta do the best with the hand life has dealt you. it could be worse.
much love to you all for responding and taking time to care,
Good Morning Maz,
Wow, you are really in a bad place, I had pneumonia once and it took me 3 weeks to get my strength back and I did not have the other nasty problems you have. I hurt for you my friend.
Hey now essays I could help you with.............I will be right down. LOL.
You do a great job and are supportive to our members here in A & P. You are one of our spokes in the wheel that makes up our family. You are an important part of this great family in A & P and I want only the best for you. I want so bad for you to start to feel better.
You have my prayers and support so keep on knowing you are family and many warm and fuzzy hugs to you my dear friend.
Aaaah Kitt, you sure know how to make one feel warm and fuzzy! its 5am and i cant sleep- coughing, short of breath, joint pain: the usual. your words are like a healing balm!
i have a huge queen sized bed (had it since i was a baby- went straight from a cot to a queen: thanks mum and dad!! lol) and my beautiful cat sleeps next to me (on a towel, she is furry) and she woke me around 4.30am just cos she wanted to be patted and seen to. i sleep on the left, she sleeps on the right. she's better bed company than any of my idiot ex boyfriends, thats for certain. although she does have fishy breath. the point is, she is intuitive. when im sick, sad, down etc she will cling to me- i love it.
apparently while i was in hospital she just stood in my bedroom doorway and paced and fretted. cute. its just so dumb to be this tired, weary, exhausted, fatigued- and not be able to sleep.
the years i was on Aropax, then Prozac, i simply didnt sleep at night. total insomnia. Aropax was from when i was 17-19, Prozac was 19-22. Before that was Tofranil- 14-17. finally at 22 i was put on Zoloft and generally its good sleep wise. im still happy with zoloft- im about to turn 29, so it has been the longest out of all my ad's.
also- this is off topic, but i thought id mention it, ive been writing a book (fiction) based on a teenage girl who struggles with AP and all that Jazz. obviously its actually semi autobiographical and i use my experiences to base it on, but the good news is i have already spoken to publishers who have shown strong interest! if i am lucky enough to eventually get published, its free copies for all HW AP members!
Great fun! An author in our midsts. I am excited for you and know you will get your book written one day......then you will be famous and I will be right there to buy the first copy.
I hope you got some sleep after I posted this morning. I am home from work and have been busy doing my share of getting ready for a bridal shower I am involved in on May 16th. Stopped and picked up everything I needed except for the cake and the fresh fruit arrangement.
Just wrapped up 12 game prizes plus a gift for the bride to be, my hubby's neice (mine too but on his side of the family).
The kids at school were great and I loved the 3 hour short shift. Heeeee Heeeee. Wish you could have a few of those.
Well my dear young friend you old friend needs a nap.
Get well and lots of those fuzzy as peaches hugs for you.
Stoping in to drop off hugs and hope you are feeling a bit better. Please know I am thinking of you and your in my prayers always.
You are my first post of the day.............I am getting ready to tackle the Middle School Kids today but it is only a half day shift so I will survive. :) I picture you already in the classroom.
Hoping your feeling better.
