Why does life always have to be so hard for us? I had the best 3 weeks of the summer these past weeks (following a miscarriage, 2 horrible stomach flu's and a regular flu (I have a toddler :-) ). But as we all know stress is a major trigger for this illness and today it came to a head. It's been a hard time for me with my fiance. Finding out he is not the person I thought he was after 7 years together. Well, I don't know what the future holds, but I know that I have a 2 year old, a brand new dream house - 1 year tomorrow - and now the weight of the world on my shoulders. Dealing with a migraine all week but I don't think it has hit me yet that my relationship is over and the stress of what is to come. I don't think it is going to be pretty and I suspect some time in court battles and a lot of money battles. The hardest part is knowing when to throw in the towel and move on. I just don't feel well now and I hate him for making me feel sick again after I've finally felt well this summer. It's been brutal with one thing after another.
I know we all have problems but somedays it just feels as if I can't take on anymore and of course my whole world is turned upside down.
I hope to make it through all of this without another relapse. I don't think I could handle that too right now.

Hi Jeminij,
I am sooooo sorry for what you are going through right now!!! This disease makes getting through times that really s^ck harder than they should be.

Hang in there, know your limits when you reach them. Prepare yourself each time you go in to do "battle" - rest well the day before & the day after at least, eat as well as you possibly can, stay well hydrated etc. This way you can get through each of these times with as little 'side effects' as possible.

And..... know that we are here to help the best way we can!!!
Even the mightiest oak tree was once a little nut who held it's ground!!!
May we all find peace along the journey to find healing.
