Dear Melissa,
I'm so sorry I did not respond to your reply about pain pumps and it's basicly cause I don't know anything about them. I think the pain pump is used as a last resort, but I don't know and I'm sorry your mother went thru a hard time with her's. Please pass on my well wishes to your mother and soft hugz....
Please know that people here care, even though you might not get many responses.

Hi Melissa I'm really sorry you felt so ignored.
I want to let you know I felt a little bit of the same way when I first joined here too and a few times when my replies were over looked also.
But I started to realize people here really do care and want to help with whatever they can. They just may not have known exactly what to say to me or that I was hurt that my replies were over looked.
I myself know absolutly nothing about pumps but you are right and that should not have stopped me from offering support to you or to anyone else.

I hope you do continue to post and give all of us a chance to stand beside you with support and understanding.
Everyone really does care how you are feeling and what your going through.
I was glad I gave HW another shot and I hope you will be too

Hugs
Freya

Sethia, welcome to the board and I am so sorry about your parents.  My grandmother practically raised me and she died of cancer. It is really hard.  I have melanoma, but am doing OK.  My prayers are with you.

PAlady, chartreux and Freda, I know people care, that's what makes this a great place.

Mochiah, I knew what you meant! yeah And even though it means I am suffering with CP, I'd rather be a part of a group like this with substance and character and knowing what's truly important, then worrying about the shallow things. So now that I'm official, lets have a party!

Gramps, you have no need to apologize, I always see you post and I"ve learned a lot from you.

Deliah, eeehh! Just the word bladder infection gives me the hebegebe's(sp?) With my disease I have them all the time and I HATE them.  When my mom was having problems, she tried to use that stuff that numbs your bladder and then she couldn't tell when she had to go so that's when she had to be cathed.    She's lucky though, as she said she can never feel being cathed even the ones they keep in for awhile, not me, yuck!  Sorry guys if that was TMI.

I hope everyone is doing well tonight :-)

Melissa

Boxlover-
OMG, you used a term that I thought only my family used, I don't know how to spell it either, but we call it hebe jeebies. For us it is a feeling like our blood sugar plumets, we get lightheaded, sweaty, shaky, and my heart races. Still don't know if it is blood sugar related (tested normal), vasovagal (called that by 1 doctor), or anxiety.
