Sorry Rocckyd, I have never used Avinza before. I wanted to tell you that its great that you have the pool and activities available for your son and yourself on Father's Day and at other times as well. I was a single mom for quite a few years and just recently remarried. I have two sons ages 14 and 13, and those years as a single mom were some of the best and worst for us as a family. I remember their disappointment in boy scouts when an unenlightened father who ran a camp would not allow me to come or help out since it was men and boys only. They decided not to go to his events because of this, and that was quite a disappointment to them. I also remember being one of the only single parents at baseball practice, soccer games, and elementary school events. Sometimes it felt like I was an alien, and when my chronic pain became noticeable in my walking or ability to help at games and events, it got even worse. For reasons unknown to me their father has chosen to have nothing to do with them, no matter how many times they call or ask. You are right, his loss.
I don't have anywhere near your swallowing or lung issues, but well remember going to pain management after pain management doctor and them having no clue what to do with me. I have endometriosis, pelvic adhesions from endo and surgeries, IBS, ovarian remnant syndrome, and depression, PTSD, and anxiety. Doctors never heard of ovarian remnant syndrome or endometriosis causing inflammation that causes increasing adhesions (scars) internally that bind all my organs into one and create misery. They just couldn't understand the type of pain I was describing or how to treat it. When I found a surgeon who understood, he directed me to a pm doctor who could help, and things are better now, although I have had to have my right ovary removed 3 times. It has regrown again, so I am on my 4th right ovary and I am 32 years old. I have a long way to go if they keep regrowing from ovarian tissue left in my pelvic cavity. I am one of the patients the doctors make sure all the residents see in the office and in surgery. It isn't always a good feeling, although I try to keep the attitude that its better they learn about what can happen after surgery and in the right conditions, instead of another woman going through years of being told there is nothing wrong with her and she needs psychiatric help.
So good job Mom for doing your best! I hope the avinza helps you. Honestly I admire you, because being a single parent and dealing with medical conditions is not always easy. I hope that you get the relief you need soon.
The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. George Bernard Shaw
