Im home! and not a moment too soon! im only 28- (29 next month) but i am covered in bruises from:

  1. Clexane injections in my stomach to stop blood clots from forming
  2. The awful, hard bed I slept in, no matter how much I moved I couldnt relieve the pressure on my body- bruises.
  3. The Canula in my hand was put in incorrectly and the IV fluids went into my tissue, not my veins (they fixed it eventually)
  4. The 4 hourly injections in my arms and upper leg

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

You always help out even when going through so much dear L.A.S. I am glad to hear that you are back home, and sorry to hear that it will take awhile for you to heal up. You have been through such a long struggle, that I am just amazed by your strength and courage. It helps make me reflect on not stressing with my simple problems, so thank you for that :) I need a good kick from time to time to keep me focused.

I pray that your recovery will come quick, and hopefully you feel well enough to teach again so soon. Thankfully the intense heat waves are over now, so maybe you will feel a bit more comfortable.

Take care of yourself and God bless my sweet friend!

Your Bro Sam :)

Geez, Maz! You have been so sick! The most important thing right now is to get yourself better! Try not to worry about anything. Know that I'm praying for your quick recovery and I'm thinking about you!

I wish I could be there to help with the essays. Do you have a friend or relative that can take a look at the essays? Or read them to ya?

:(... Pneumonia sucks... I'm glad that you're doing well enough to be out of the hospital and hope your recovery continues to improve...
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.

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.  devil

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.

Kitt

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!

Anyway, im going to try and read myself back to sleep, the painkillers are kicking in thank goodness.
love and blessings to all,

Maz,

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.

Kitt

Maz,

I'm glad you're home with your cuddly kitty to share her furry love.

Does the character in your book use an online health forum? ;)

I hope you recover steadily and quickly. Take good care of yourself!

I know what it's like to be ridiculously tired and not be able to sleep... That was me last year.... (This year, it's kinda the opposite... I'm ridiculously tired, but I'm able to sleep... and I've been sleeping too much... And I wake up... still ridiculously tired)

Hope things get better...

I couldn't sleep while taking Prozac either, until my 13 year old daughter suggested I take it in the morning instead of night. Well, that worked. It's been fine ever since.

I sure hope you're feeling a bit better. I know it will take time. When you're not at work, stay in bed. Take care, my friend!

Hoping your feeling better.

Hey L.A.S.

I hope you are doing better today. I just wanted to congratulate you on the possible publication of your novel :) That is such great news and I definitely would like to buy a copy.

Take care and get plenty of rest.
