    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.

    Oh Nonna I know this has to be wearing you out! I think of you often. I am here if you need me.

    thanks for all of the kind thoughts. I have a doctors appointment at 215. We will see how things are looking. I am feeling better although tired

    I completely understand the “push through”. I woke up yesterday with chest pain. It hurt when I would take deep breaths, bend over to pick something up, sit down from standing or laying down flat. I have had this looked into before at emergent care. They told me to go home and call my doctor. My rheumy ordered a 2d echo. That came back fine. So yesterday I got this chest pain again. I still went to work and just dealt with it. After a while I just got use to it…… I didn’t want to let the team down. I want my co-workers to be able to count on me to be there.

    sorry to read that you are not feeling well.

    I no longer suffer in silence. no one appreciates a martyr. our loved ones want us healthy and well.

    when I first became sick, I was young and thought that i'd be able to live my life as I always had. I was constantly in the er.

    since then I learned to accept help when offered, and most importantly ask for it when needed.

    take care and get well.
