How are you feeling today? Spirits up? Big plans for the weekend?
Sorry to hear about the cyst...trust me I know...ie the PIT! LOL. Glad they found it of course so now you can be treated and hopfully like me it will go away so you won't need any kind of surgery. I am on 5mg of prednisone and can't wait to be off completly! Flare ups are the worse but they do pass. I have gone from bed ridden for 4 weeks to working out doing an hour of cardio so I know there is healing coming for you sooner than you think...just believe this for yourself.
Colorado Springs. Sounds light airy and beautiful...I hope you have a wonderful time!
thanks for asking...I am feeling great! My spirits are up and I feel blessed more than anyone knows to know the staph is gone, arm is healing and I will be back in the gym soon. Blessed that I am alive and almost pain free! Just happy to be here adn in a good mood instead of depressed or in a funk as us Lupies get! know what I mean?
Thats awesome to hear! I hope that it feels up even better when you get your stitches.
Are you having a good day? Are you feeling alright besides the pit? I hope awesome!
My nephrologist said I am definitely in a pretty bad flare and so I gave in and am starting
a prednisone treatment not very high and just for a few weeks..I just want to feel better! especially because I'm leaving for Colorado Springs tomorrow! He said he will
do another biopsy but would like to wait until I go see a new Rheumy in two weeks to see what she has to say before setting a date.
My MRI & catscan showed that I have a cyst in my right sinus..the doctor gave me antibiotics and said she hopes itll help but if I still have the pain to see a neurologist.
Thank you and "the Pit" per doctor this morning said it is healing nicely. NO more staph infections...YEAH! Getting the hole stitched up June 9th so I am happy about that! I wish you well with your appts. I know dealing and doing the MRI catscan can be a pain but better safe than sorry! Let me know how it turns out and how you feel afterwards.
I'm so sorry to hear about your poor armpit! But atleast the cyst is gone. I hope you are feeling better and that you are healing up well! But lets those things hang free and enjoy
it while you do hahaha
I felt better but this migraine I've had is killing me I have an MRI and catscan tomorrow
so hopefully they can tell me whats wrong and how to make this swollen right eye and
pain go away! I also have an appointment with my nephrologist tomorrow imagine that..
I have his appointment at 2:30 in chicago then I have the scans at 5 about 45-50 minutes away..hopefully it isn't the usual doctors room waiting game like usual! maybe if
i get there early theyll take me early!....wish me luck!
I hope you have a wonderful day today and your feeling good..let me know!
Bra??? I haven't worn one of those in about 3 weeks. I had surgery on my armpit due to a sabaceus cyst I had that got infected and turned into an abscess. Just loose and swinging but I am still healing. I have a hole in my armpit the size of a quarter that was actually the size of a half dollar or a little larger after surgery. I have to change the gauze 2 a day or my family does anyway. I also found out I had a staph infection...Yeah, last month has been great for me. I hope you are feeling better and able to go out with your friends. As for your X..no comment. I will be here all day talking about stupid men/boys. Try not to think about them as it just angers me and I try not to be bitter and angry or get stressed thinking about it. You will work again when you are ready and your body can function!
You are very welcome & I know exactly what you mean..some days I look awful and others I feel so awful I try to do my make-up& dress up to try to make myself look nice to feel a little better. And I know those days that you are talking about..when you can't even reach around to put your own bra on. I am very sorry about your ex but like I said you obviously deserved better than him.
When I am feeling good I love to go out and do things and have fun but I usually go through 6-7 months feeling wonderful then out of nowhere I get a bad flare for the next 6 months that I only get real relief from pain sometimes so I feel that when I go out with my friends when I'm not feeling well that I'm a downer because I have to walk slow or cus I can't do as much as I could on a good day.
I try concentrate on making myself feel better but I just got out of a relationship..and i think he may have broken up with me due to the fact that I couldn't work because of the pain I am in. I'm not sure though
Your welcome! Thank you for the wonderful compliment! I try to keep up the appearence but some times I look like death on a soda cracker for real. Some days I can't even lift my arms to comb my hair but it gets better. As for my X...he cheated on me prior to me being diagnosed so I guess he just wasn't happy...BYE..Dirty Birdie! As for you...the flares will and are going to subside and you will feel like getting out and meeting people. I was the same way. I didn't want any of my friends to see me when I was sick and in pain. Now i have good days and I do go out and mix and mingle. You will find a man that will be all that you want and need and you have plenty of time. Focus on your health and remission from Lupus so you can feel good and move forward with your life!
