hi isee...

eeeeeeegad, I am so sorry that your weekend has been this bad....it could not help that you did not have us to keep you company.

Yes, I have been so bad off that I too wondered if i would even be able to get out of bed. I stumbled, and bounced of walls just to get to the bathroom...I was totally non-functional. And, when you live alone, it is especially scary. The last time this happened to me, I went to my rheumy and she gave me a medrol injection. This really helped and I have felt better ever since. I have also gotten cortisone shots in my hip when that pain was so bad.

My back pains run horizontally accross my back between the shoulder blades. Don't know what causes it, but it is the worst. I take Dilaudid for the pain, and can usually get some relief.

I also keep a walking cane close by when I am in bad flare. This just gives me a little support, and I feel safer when trying to walk.

I wish I could give you a hug, and be there to help you through this.

Oh, Isee...

I'm really sorry you've had such a rough weekend. :(

Wish we were closer so we could help you get out for a walk down your road. Actually, we could gather 4 of us and use one of those things they carry royalty on, you know....we could hoist the poles on our shoulders and you'd ride up there in your special seat, where you'd have the greatest view. :) We might have to put a seatbelt on you, though, so you don't fall off like your couch incident.

Honestly, I wish there was something we could do to get you through all this pain. I'm sending you very gentle HUGS that won't squeeze too much....

Hang in there....you're back among friends now, so not so alone.

Sorry for your tears....Will it help if I cry with you?


Lori :)

I wish things were better for you ISDM. Please remember that you are not stupid. We all have times where we can't remember, and simple things are really hard. It's not you, it's the disease. I've been dealing with some substantial pain for more than a few days now, so I understand how you feel. Pain takes what little energy we have, and we end up angry, and frustrated. Pain kills our patience and we get angry so easily.

About falling down, a few months back I fell in the kitchen and had to go get my noggin stitched up pretty good. Falls happen to the best of us. Of course, it wasn't my fault, the dishwasher jumped out and got in my way. You'll be able to walk to the road, and get fresh air. You just can't do it today, that's all.

Please don't be angry with yourself. You are doing the very best you can right now. I hope you have a good night. Go easy on yourself. I'll talk to you later.
