    Well, where have been..I miss so many posts. I must not be doing something right or something is missing....

    A.O....What a bitter sweet ending, beginning...I am so elated you found the care you need. It is so hard, being in pain and agony and feeling like is it really all in my head...frustrating to say the least. That in itself is so mind bending that it creates anxieties, depression. I am so sorry you had to go through all that stuff to get to point B...care. Shame how we have to arm wrestle the doctors for care...like it is costing them something out of their own pockets...

    Girl...keep up the courage...face your fears and they will unravel. Be relentless, persistence even when you feel beaten...

    It is hard not to think about days gone past, the anger...but those feeling only consume us, time wasted....time that we will never get back.

    I am so happy you are finally being heard....head hugs.

    Love,
    Oluwa

    Angel;
    I am so so happy that your doctor finally came around and that, hopefully, you will be treated for these symptoms! I'm sorry to hear that you need surgery, but hopefully it will resolve some issues also.
    It is so wonderful to FINALLY have a doctor who believes you!!

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    Angel, hope you don't mind the bold print but this help me see. I can't hardly see the fine print and my eyes are getting tired.

    Hope your meds are helping you feel better til you get your surgery. Hope you had a good night sleep and feel rested. So you can enjoy your yard and pets fresh air.

    Default hi

    Oh thanks so much for such lovely posts. It feels so good to know i wasnt doing it for attention and now they can help me.I have found though since having depression and anxiety....this must be flashing in bright lights at the top of my medical records....therefore everything and anything must be down to that.And its not and so very unfair of them to assume this.
    Just waiting for the call now,so eating a good supply of chocolate as i might not be able to open my jaw wide enough.....how cruel that was at christmas.Not now though...eating an easter egg and mini egg...mmmmmmmm what pain.mmmmmmm
    I am still here,just been on new meds so unable to function like i used to.I will pop back,just know im thinking of you all and hoping you are keeping on keeping on.xxxxxxx

    Are your toes curling while you eat you chocolate, girl? Mine does when I do...

    A.O. I could go to my local drug store and see if they have any seasonal Christmas candy still on sale...the 75% off stuff...

    Enjoy the chocolate. I have been monitoring my intake...I am eating none...ugh. I ate my quota for the summer...when I am ready to hibernate for the winter I will put on my winter fat with chocolate. Sees candies...oh, such wonderful hand dipped chocolates. My friend keeps saying he is going to send me 5 pounds for my birthday..

    He would sabotage my diet..I have no control, only when it is out of sight...

    Happier days are ahead for you...pain relief is on its way...

    Much Love,
    Oluwa
