Aw Nurse, I am so sorry that you are having such a terrible time. Any chance of your dr increasing your meds or trying a different one to help you out here? May be worth making a call and talking to the nurse.
Omg, there is no way I would consider dinner at my house for 15, I don't care who they are. Surely these folks understand that you are not in any shape to have company at this time. What I would do is get on the phone now and ask who is willing to sponsor the big feast at their home this year. Its just not right for people to expect to come to your place this time. Instead. they should be falling all over themselves helping you out. I don't care how good hubby is and how hubby will cook-the two of you need a break!!!
I will stop here before I shoot my big mouth off, this just is not right. Take care of yourself.
