I'm sorry to hear that you feel alone in this right now...like people aren't listening. I'm fairly new to this site myself, but the little time that I've spent posting my little blurbs, reading others and replying, and sometimes just reading about
others journeys, it's been helping me to not feel so alone with the sickness that our bodies can have. It's a hard road to walk down being stuck with a chronic condition. I do hope that you find here what I have...a place to get some extra advice, to be listened to, and whatever else you need. I'm 28yrs old, and I was diagnosed 2 1/2 yrs ago...I still feel too young to be this sick...but then it surely makes me thankful and blessed for the days that I do have feeling well...they will come. Maybe not as often as you like, but they'll be there that's for sure. And in being sick, it's helped me to appreciate the "little things in life" Heck today I was out thanking God just for the fact that I could walk 15 min to the store and breathe in the cold fresh air. 'cause just over a month ago I was getting around with the help of a wheelchair...my legs were burning with horrible pain for some reason...today I am thankful to be up and about
...Welcome to the site/forum. Again I hope that you enjoy this "place" I also hope that your meds kick in like they're supposed to and you can enjoy just being up and about
with your kids, and family and friends like you'd love to be doing without pain I'm sure. Take care
It is God that gives me the strength to carry on in the valleys of life and the wings to fly to the mountain tops
