Thank you Des for responding to my post I have gained a wealth of info in just 1 day thank you to all of you for helping to ease my hopelessness...I know I have a long road ahead of me but am beginning to build some tools to help me get by....

I am still overwhelmed but trying to take it one day at a time.....My husband is a recovering alcoholic and the stress of the last few years especially the last few months it has been difficult I am trying to incorporate what I have learned in al-a-non to my health as I am looking back over the past few years I see so many unexplained symptoms add them together and they make so much short term memory is effected as well.It is so hard to see the changes in my life.I do not seem to be the person I used to be living with chronic pain is a tremendous burden.

Again thanks to all of you. I really need your support in my journey.

God Bless,

Hi Sheryl, and a great big welcome from me too. I'm so sorry you're having such a tough time right now. Just having to deal with an undiagnosed disease is enough to make anyone crazy, but you have so much more going on in your life. You surely know first hand the benefits of a support group since you go to al-a-non.

I hope you'll find many of those benefits here. Do feel free to let it all out, expecially during times like this when you're feeling so extraordinarilly overwhelmed. We may not all have the same exact illnesses, but we do understand each other. We all deal with a chronic illness and we've all been through the doctor mill trying to find the perfect match for each of us.

Good luck in getting the proper diagnosis. You've gotten some terrific advice here, and hopefully made some new friends.

I hope to see you back here real soon.

Hello everyone,

I can't wait to see the rheumy and get the ball rolling after 3 years almost of constant pain, with diabetic neuropathy. The pain is getting worse and new symptoms arising all the time used to be the pain was mostly in my feet and calves but now it is in my hips , low back, shoulders and hands are getting weak.I am having trouble with stomach and bowels as well. I am having more trouble getting up and down out of chairs , etc...My husband tries to be supportive sometimes too supportive wants to do everything for me but I have to keep moving as much as possible.

We should get his results this week from his prostrate biopsy.I am praying that it isn't cancerous his health hasn't been the greatest in 2006 he had a doulbe heart bypass and right now he is 6 weeks without a cigarette and almost 30 days with out alcohol I am very proud of him.

I am having a lot of severe pain today I woke up in tears so I loaded up on on pain pills....ate some food and now am feeling a little better

Well I hope you are all doing well I appreciate you all letting me rant and rave and all the positive input....

God Bless you all,
