cry  I am soooo over it, as they say.  I started crying on my break about 30 min ago and I can't get it to stop.  I am at my desk and trust me, people can see me.  Of course no one has said anything to me.  But one person has given me a strange look though.  I am stifuling myself and dabbing my eyes and then I keep turning around to blow my nose at the wall behind me. 
I started out crappy this am(I posted earlier). My flushes or hot flashes, still not sure what they are have been are bothering me ALOT this week.  I don't want to talk to my husband because he already has made a comment about me being grouchy because I said I didn't feel good this morning.
What I really want is a friend I can call, I only have 3 besides my husband.  My sister for one and she is currently suffering big time with her manic depression, my daughter is at work and I don't feel I should bug her as of yet and I'll see her at home.  And #3 is a girlfriend I've known for 25 yrs and her young son is in and out of the hosp. with brain cancer.  So, I guess I just have to wait til someone is available for me.  I have to be their for them, but not such much my daughter right now.  But I would love for someone to just come up and give me a hug and tell me I'm doing great(their I go, tears rollin' down, hang on.....)mmm..inspite of.  Ya know what I mean??  I didn't ask for this.  I feel alone right now.  It hurts me deep.  Help me.

Hi Lori,
I'm hanging around the board for a while. I can give you a cyber-hug!
I don't know much about you though - can you fill me in on the latest challenges?
Grace and peace to you

Sorry you are feeling so crappy. I wish I could say something to make it better. I know how it is. I came home today after only three hours at work. I am having a flare and I know there is nothing I can do about it so i am also feeling very sad and alone. I have friends that understand but they have problems too. I do not have a significant other but when i did he never understood either and he never wanted to. I wish you could talk to your husband. I'm so sorry you feel you can't.

I really want to say something profound but i just can't right now. I hope you feel better soon and who cares if people give you strange looks. they don't get it!!

I just seems like a bad day today. I couldn't hardly sleep at all the night before last, then I slept all day yesterday which made my kids upset and it wasnt fair to them but I couldn't keep my eyes open for the life of me, so becasue I slept all day yesterday I couldn't sleep again last night, so I just took a long nap while my kids where at school hopeing to be awake by the time they get home cause we have to work on my son's cubscout's derby car so I have to take him to my dad's house cause I have no idea how to do that, and I have to do laundry. BUT now I have severe leg cramps and heartburn. And while I was sleeping today I kept having some very very weird dreams. My legs are hurting so bad, the calfs all the way up to he knees, it feels ike growing pains. I just really wish I could sleep at night but for some reason lately I just cant, and theirs no use talking to a doctor about it cause i know it will fall on deaf ears, it's terrible having state insurance, I'm forced to go to this low income clinic that I swear the doctor's that work there are there because they got in trouble with something and they're doing community service to get their license back. Everytime I go there the doctor I saw last is no longer there. I once was forced to see this guy that acted like I was going to attack him, he had this nurse in the room with us the whole time listening to my personal problems that made me so uncomofrotable. So I just suffer with the sleepless night, the extra pain, and exhaution. I hope you start to feel better.

I have Migraines, Pancreatic Divisum, Severe lower back pain, Fibromyalgia, Asthma from Chronic Bronchitis
Meds: Suboxone 8mg 3xday, Cymbalta 60mg @ night,
Zanaflex 2-4 mg @ night as needed, Treximet as needed,
Ventolin Albuterol Inhaler as needed which seems to be everyday.
Been on Diability since I was 22 for Migraines and chronic Pancreatitas(started the processes when I was 19, I'm 25 now) but am working to get off of it ASAP,I want to be a nurse and work at a Impatient rehab with people with addictions of all kinds

I am so sorry that you are having such a hard day. I wish you could go somewhere and just let it all out. Crying is so healthy and such a good release. You need that. So when you get home, go into your room with a box of tissues and get that release. I hope that you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen

Aw, I'm sorry you're feeling so bad. Trust me, I understand. I've had those days at work too. You feel so horrible, then the tears come which makes you feel worse and embarassed which makes it harder to stop crying. What usually helps me is if I go into the bathroom and just cry as hard as I can for a few minutes. When I get back to my desk, I still feel crappy, but at least people aren't looking at me like I'm weird or something. That's probably the worst part -- People will walk right by, see you in obvious distress and keep going. People just don't care about each other anymore.

Please know we're all here for you and if you were at MY work, I'd be the first one to run up to you, give you a hug and tell you it'll be okay.

Ooh Lori sad sad Today seems like a bad day for almost everyone. I'm not having the greatest time in my life either, believe me. I am SO sorry you are feeling like this... but I think you need to just let it out once you get home, like getting by suggested. Crying is NOT bad coping method, it is HEALTHY! So don't feel ashamed to be doing it... I am a cryer, I cry often and over even trivial things, it's just how I have always been. And I don't even feel ashamed. And I'm also sorry that you don't have anyone in your life "available" right now because they have their own issues, but as you realized WE are here for you WHENEVER! We care about you. Take a nice hot bath tonight, it'll relax your nerves.
Let us know how you are doing!!

So sorry about the terrible day you have had. I hope things are going a bit better now. I hate that when my dh tells me to "live with it" or "just blow it off". It gets me mad and also makes me feel like he doesn't understand what I'm going thru. Crying is good therapy. I don't do it enough and then I think it all builds up until one day I wake up not feeling well and all it takes is for something else to happen and I pretty well can cry the rest of the day.

Most people don't understand how bad we hurt or how hard it is to get thru a day without hurting. I know that sometimes I would just love it if my dh or daughter's asked me how I was feeling or if I needed help with anything around the house. Most of the time they all make me feel like I am faking my pain.

Hang in there because it can & will get better. You can come here anytime. There is always someone willing to lend an ear. Please let us know how you are doing!

Hugs!!  Margie
