Thank you to everyone that has been helping me try to stay positive during this very painful time of titration. I am counting the days till Monday, Nov 20th, when I can get my pain pump. During this time my migraines have spiked and my anxiety has been through the roof, like never before. The best surprise I have got though is that my Big-Sis-n-Love is coming Friday to stay with me and my family through the weekend. She was a Godsend to us before: during my 360 Lumbar surgery, many, many procedures, and at least one more more surgery. She is the Sis you don’t have to clean the house for...if you get my drift! I can’t wait till she gets here! I love her so much!!!
Good Morning Dear Sweet Friends...I need your support and help during this week. I have been trying to stay positive over the last week or so. Now the pain is increasing to a point that it is all I can absolutely focus on. I have nerve damage in my spine from C3 to S1; which affects my arms and legs. I also serve migraines that never seem to end. I am eating a special diet that helps me not eat foods my body is sensitive to such as dairy, gluten, gluten-free, soy, sugar, fructose, and many, many more. I am immense pain and at the same time feel very deprived of everything. Please pray for me to be able to remain focused and positive during this time. That is my request! I need you all at this time.
Good Morning all my Spoonies and Chronic Pain Warriors! Here is to another week full of possibilities and chances to for each day to be better than the day before. (Warning: Reality for most of us that things may not change and we may still have to deal with the same sh•• as the day before, but the idea is not to focus on that. Focus on the possibilities of that good day, good morning, good afternoon, or good evening. You get the idea.). What I wish you is hope for these things!
Good Morning Everyone! I hope everyone can have a low or pain free day! Hope is what we make of it! Everyday is another opportunity for all the wonderful things LIFE has to offer. Never give up on things like HOPE, LOVE, JOY, ... You fill in the blank ______. Have a blessed day my Dear Sweet Friends!
Thank you for your prayers and positive thoughts today for Kyle my husband! It really helped. We got to get in and out of the ER extremely fast so Kyle can still make it to his Ortho appointment today at 1:50. Continued prayers and positive thoughts would be appreciated for that too!!! Kyle is my everything! He and I have been together since we were 17! I can not imagine life any different. He has been with me at doctor appointments since I was 17. It is hard for me to see him sick. Sorry for going on and on... Thank you again!!!!
Well..... I am up at my usual 3 am! It is Painsomnia Time! It is so frustrating. The thing that I am grateful for is that: I don’t have work tomorrow because, I know that there are others of you out there that are not so lucky. Saying a prayer and sending positive thoughts through the pain for all of us!
In memory of all that have served past, present, and even future. We can not begin to thank you for all you have done for our country. In honor of all in my family that has served from: Pawpaw Thompson, Papa Tanner, my husband, Wayne, Stacy, Bubba, Uncle Sam, and to Connor who is currently serving. If I missed anyone I am sorry. Our family is full of Patriots, as well as wives that supported them as they served. God bless you all and our Great Country the U.S.A. !
It is crazy how memories can just flood your mind and you realize how much you miss someone that was there for you through so much. It has been 9 long years since, I have heard your voice. 9 long years since, I could get your help regarding something, I would share with no one else. It has been 9 years since, I had someone that held the same memories as me and knew my thoughts as I do. It has been a long time for all of us! But we go on knowing you loved us and that your greatest joy was seeing us happy. I miss you my Best Friend!!! You will never be forgotten and will always have a huge place in my heart! Gone far to soon but, never forgotten: Regina
