Gosh I just can't seem to get any relief with my pain levels. I have taken it easy all week by doing nothing extra. I did go to my rehab sessions, but even those were very difficult and not just due to my pain levels. As I was walking on the treadmill my Oxygen levels dropped to 83%, it took almost 5 minutes before I moved back up to 90%.
I just feel so bad, I think I feel like death warmed over. Even though I'm not 100% sure what death warmed over feels like. I called my primary care Dr and she wants to see me Tuesday afternoon. Of course, I'm having my cataract surgery on Monday sometime. Guess hubby is just gonna have to accept we will be at the hospital most of the day Tuesday.
I honestly don't know if I can continue to hold on. I have been fighting my RA/Lupus/Fibro for so many years now. The Leukemia is just making my situation so much more difficult. I'm missing my parents so much right now and with my daughter so mad at me. Well.......I just feel like there has to be a better place than here right now.
My therapist and talked a lot about my passing away and how I thought my family would handle it. I think they would adjust okay. I mean don't get me wrong I know my family loves me and would miss me, BUT I also know what it's like to take care of a loved one who is chronically ill. I didn't want to see my Mom pass away, but watching her suffer like she did was so hard. When she took her final breath it was bittersweet, part of me wanted to die with her. I thought how will I ever manage without her, then in the next breathe it was relief I felt, that she didn't have to suffer anymore. I truly believe my family would feel the same way about me.
My daughter is really having a hard time that my Dr's can't keep me comfortable. She resents them, thinks they treat me like a lab rat, and then is mad at me for allowing them to treat me that way. I just don't know what to do. I want what time I have left with her to be good memories and happy times. As it is now, she's unpleasant to me to say the least. Even hubby tells her not to speak to me in that tone or way. It goes in one ear and out the other. She's been traumatized all the way around and I feel responsible. Please say a prayer that things improve for her and I. She's 20 and I don't want her hating me and then I die, she'll feel badly about that.
Thanks for listening, I just need to unload at times. I'm hurting to much to sit here anymore. So I'm off to bed and to take some pain medication. I hope you all have a good night that is low in pain levels and a good nights sleep awaits you.
