Hey runningdreams (: I love your name.
Welcome to the forum! I'm sorry that you have to use us, but glad you found us.
I'm sorry...I wish I could tell you something that makes the pain better. But to be honest, I'm new to this world of pain, too. And I dont know how to cope with it either.
Something that has helped with the weakness, and my arms feeling so weak and heavy, is a warm epsom salt bath. It helps my sore muscles sometimes.
I'm sorry to hear that your husband doesn't really support you in the way you need him to. It seems that sometimes, healthy people just can't cope with the people they love being sick. Not any sicker than a cold, or perhaps a broken arm, at least. It's scary, for everyone involved.
Sorry if i dont make much sense, i'm sort of in a weird place today, but I just wanted to stop in and say hello and welcome. I wish that there was more I could say to make it better. If I come across anything that helps i'll be sure to let you know !
One day at a time, one breath at a time... We can get through this.
