I owe you an apology. I am very sorry. I have not experienced being in a wheelchair so I really don't know. I have offended you and I am sorry. I have experienced fatigue and when I had it I couldn't work, I couldn't drive and I didn't want to go anywhere. Certainly I do not know what it is to be in a wheelchair, and I spoke without thinking. Thank you for calling me on it. I can certainly read the frustration in your words. I seem to do that to you a lot. Again, I am sorry.
Love and prayers,
Hi, Gretchen...seems we were cross-posting.
First, no apology is necessary, really. Please read what I just posted above-- I'm not at all offended, just making my position clear. You don't really frustrate me, and haven't really frustrated me in earlier posts -- and certainly not as much as apparently I frustrate some others here. I realize that I am much more disabled than most of the folks that post here. Between my own 24 years of disability and 30 years of working with people with disabilities (which I did before I became disabled myself, and still do some work), I suppose I do sometimes come across as a "know-it-all"..because, frankly, I do know a bit more than some folks who are newly diagnosed, or not yet diagnosed at all. So for that I am very sorry.
continue, folks. What is your most troublesome symptom(s), right now? Today, I'd jump on the "fatigue" bandwagon...assuming I could jump. :) Just spent the day doing necessary shopping..only 3 stores...and I'm crashing in to bed after posting this. One store too many, I told my husband. If I'd stopped after #2, maybe I'd feel alive right now!
...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....
