~About my weekend~

.....Just to let you know, nothing in this journal's entry is toward anyone in specific, I use it to write my feelings, and about my illnesess, and in hopes it might help someone else as I do.I do not pretend nor imatate to be someone I'm not. And if you might take an entry wrong and feel that it is about you, I'm sorry but It isn't, it just may seem to coincide with your own life. And if there is something in what I write that "offends" you, options; don't read, or realize that this IS real life, and get out of your plastic bubble and learn more about it! God bless you!......


Good morning all! I'm in hopes that you are feeling great this morning!

This weekend has been a rollercoaster ride! The pains were so intense at times, I could hardly bare it! I'm also having those 'shocking' type pains omce again! uuugghh! All I could do was to sit in my bed. Bummer. There's nothing worse, for me, then those 'shocking' type pains! They stop me right in my tracks! Mainly because it's my legs that are usually affected. This time, it was my whole body that was affected! Good grief! And the 'shocking' feelings were worse and felt like I would picture in my mind, lightening bolts just shooting through my body! Ouchie! This time, it started on my right side. That was usually starts up on my left. My husband asked if rubbing my legs would help ease the pains. Not with this kind. It hurts to even touch me! I wish I could explain it better. It's just a very different pain then the fibromyalgia. Now that he could rub my legs and it would help and feel great.

I'm going to call this other pain clinic today that can put a Bachlifen pump in. I need something to help me. I used to actually take the pill form but my gp, the one I don't like, took me off of it! gggrrr! And he won't put me back on it! He's a nut! A cracked one! I wish I had my old gp....too bad he moved away.
I am very gratefull for the support system that I do have; like the nurses because they can help me. And they do!
Yesterday, I started to not feel so good. Like a flu or cold coming on. I really don't want to get sick right now. Geesh! ....This too shall pass!
My daughter and her husband came over on Saturday to do a little more on his derby car. Of course....that always makes me feel better when I see my grandson and my daughter! :o) Bless her heart....she's still not doing very well with this pregnancy. She was having some pains on her right lower quaderant. She says shes alright, but I still worry about her. I wish at times that they still lived here so I can help take care of her. I love all three of them so very much! :o)

This morning I woke up too early. I hate when I do that! lol I really had a hard time sleeping last night as well. Because of the pains. gggrrr! When I got up, my right hand and arm is swollen and is itching! I took some benadryl to help with the itching. It hasn't worked yet! This was about 3 hours ago! I wasn't bitten by anything. I think it might be hives. I get them all the time this time of year. I usually end up in the ER to get a shot. One time I was actully hospitalized because they got so bad I had them from head to toe and in my mouth and everywhere! The icthing was just horrid to cope with! Yikes!

Yesterday my husband had to work on the gas pipes in the basement. Little did we know, we had a gas leak! We would smell a gas smell and didn't know where it was coming from. He found it and had to change all the pipes. So, I didn't get my sink put in yet. I'm just glad that he found it and was able to fix that leak! Whew! Everytime he has something planned....something else always comes up! lol
Oh....I want to explain the reason that I've been posting more wedding pictures. I had mine and everyone else that took pictures as well gave me theirs. :o) So....if you're sick of seeing them, just let me know....I know I'm not. :o)

I really want to thank all of you for your support! Believe me...I really appreciate it! It does help me to know that I'm not alone while I'm going through this. :o) I'm not sure how long this 'shocking' pain will last, it seems to have a mind of it's own! lol :o) Again, like I'm fighting my own body! well...I am! Showing your support really makes me feel that you really are my friends! :o) Thank you so very much!
Always find a way to smile! :o) Thats why I've been putting some humor in my journal! Inhoping that it will at least put a smile on your face! :o) It does me! :o) Please remember to live your life to the fullest! No regrets! Just live! :o) And love your friends and family! Like you've never done before! Get as many hugs a day as much as you can! :o) That helps too! :o) And never ever give up! The Lord has you in His hands! :o) Even when you don't feel it, He does! :o)
Again, thank you! Gods blessings to all of you! :o)

You've been VERY lucky with that gasleak, Lisa, that scared the socks off me. I'm sorry you're in so much pain, and being denied the meds you need.

Whoa....glad your DH found that leak.  Sorry to hear you're in so much pain.  I pray for you everyday to have less pain and that the drs. will start giving you the meds you need.  At least with the nurses coming out, that's one prayer answered.  Hope you feel better!

I don't think many of us have to endure something like shocking pains.  I can only imagine what they feel like from your description.  I did not know the body could hurt so many different ways with MS.  I am never going to think the same way about that disease again, and I am going to hope they can find a cure.  It makes me wonder what people like Montel has done for his, and whether there is treatment that works better.  I wish you could get on Montel's show.  I think he has done a great favor to many impaired people by putting them on his show and doing what he can to relieve them and find help for them.  He has had some people on there whose stories have moved me deeply.  Now I just go to journals like yours to learn more about MS and the progress of the disease.  It is all too easy to draw a blank when you think about the progression of a bad disease like this.  When you read about the daily suffering and deterioration then you know what hell is.  And you also know what courage is, too, in those who struggle with it, and still come up with a joke!  Unbelievable!  Gerry

Dear Lisa

I just hope and pray that you get the Bachlifen pump soon.  It is just not right that you have to suffer such excrutiating pains!  You are very brave indeed to keep up such a brave front.  We women learn to be such goood actress's but there are times when I 'm sure you cry too.  I so wish I could take the pain away for you.
You are such a cheery soul.
I love looking at your photos...and I would never be bored looking at them.  

Praying for you real hard.  You do need some pain relief soon!!!
