My dear Brother,
How I have worried about you, but knowing the strength within, I knew you would come through this and continue to do so. You were the main reason I was here to begin with then met some amazing people. I got really down. Somethings are going on with my pm doctor as ususal and lord I've heard enough that I should change, but it's not that simple! I also have to have surgery and wish I could talk about it, and then after 11 years of being on SSD, they wrote me a letter and cut me off. So, I've been dealing with a lot...by myself as many of us do. I have to hand big HUGE cudo's to Tina for hanging in there with me through it all and then I stop by here at Tina's request and what do I see, another "love" letter to your HW family. Thank you for making me feel so welcome and for loving others so very much.
I'm called Cat or Stac at times, but as there are few other Cat's on here, I put the number of cats I have and combined it to spell out Catz4/DXed-Syringomyelia C-1 to T-1, Hypothyroidism, Diabetes Type II, IBS, Panic Disorder, ICC , Fibromyalgia, Migraines, Bipolar Disorder, Chronic Muscle Spasms, Torn Rotator Cuff in Left Shoulder, Frozen Shoulder. I had an emergency surgery for ruptured bowel in '05 w/colostomy and takedown in '06. I'm frightened most of the time and scared the rest! I would love to be heard by friends, family and now most of my doctors has seen the proof of my pain. What validation. This has beomce one of the most important words to me...to be validated. Too many meds to name/Too many allergic reactions/sensitivities to too many drugs to name. Meds for Panic Disorder, Pain, Bipolar, IBS, Hypothroidism, Diabetes, Insomnia and then some.
