View Full Version : I've been a little slow...

Hi everyone,

I'm sorry I have been a little slow lately with responding to PM's and such. Been feeling pretty sick as of late. The usual ache's and pains plus stomach, and vision problems have slowed me down a bit. I appreciate everyone's patience, and I just wanted to let you all know what's going on. I am frequently down, but never, ever out. The words of encouragment I get here help keep me going through the bad days. Thank you all for that.

Sorry to hear that Rob...

It soon will pass....the ride with Lupus and his cronies is up and down like an a fair ride. We never lose the feeling after we get off. Always lurking but well enough to say we feel okay, good....

Sleep, get some fresh winter snowy air...

Wishing you wellness, your norm, feel good soon..hugs.

Sorry that you're not feeling well of late. The stomach stuff can be agonizing and the vision stuff scary. Sit on the porch and listen to the crash of the waves. Give your eyes a rest and eat lightly while you're going thru this. Most importantly, be easy on yourself. We'll all be right here when you return :)

Hey Rob;
You need never apologize to us when you are not doing well. You know that we understand. I think that we worry, a bit, if we don't hear from you and I truly appreciate you letting us know that you are still around.
I know that this has been a long and arduous flare with more downs than ups; and now this issue with your eyes. Please know that we are here for you and I wish that I could do something tangible to help you. So, I am sending you my tightest cyber-hug filled with the most sincere hopes that you can start climbing out of this long-lasting battle.

Hi everyone,

I feel human this morning! I just got up, did some minor household chores, and I don't feel like I need to go back to bed. And I'm hungry! I haven't had an appetite for many days now. This latest bout of flare and symptoms has been one of the worst I've ever had. The fatigue and joint pain were intense. I cannot thank all of you enough for your kind words, your messages, and for caring. Your kindness has helped me to avoid falling into that deep dark hole of depression that always presents itself during a flare. Thank you! Time for me to get caught up here now.

Hey Rob;
I hope that you eat everything in site:valentine2:
It is not often that we have a healthy appetite, so when we are able to eat, we make the most of it! I am SOOOOOOOO Happy to hear that today is starting out to be a good day for you. This last flare was relentless and you were on my mind every single day. I am praying that your day continues to be a good day and that each day, from now on, gets even better!

Peace and Blessings
