Default You don't need to clean the garage Mommy...

You just need to hold me so I can sweep.

(Ignore my arm. I had to take the pic myself with my phone. )

The things we do for these little Angels. And I know everyone here can relate all to well.





Since I haven't been very mobile lately, I thought it would be a good time to sit and go through some boxes in the garage. Things need to be thrown out, etc. Well that didn't happen. I sat here and held her for an hour while she napped.

Lexie is a wise girl, mama you definitely should not be cleaning out the garage
right now. Take good care of yourself, rest. I know it's tough, but you must
take the time to.

I was just going to go through some boxes while sitting. But oh well. I've needed to do it for months now, so a few more months of waiting won't hurt. I had a few Dr's appts. today, and a few errands. My Honey chauffeured me. Gone most of the day, so she's sticking close to Mom tonight. Think I'm heading to bed in a few. The extra rest hopefully will speed the healing. Although I only sleep for about 2 hours at a time. Up and down all night. :/

Thank you, LS!

Oh I bet you are tired. I hope your Dr. visits went smoothly.
Your honey bunny sounds like a thoughtful, kind person, sounds like he takes
good care of you always. I'm happy for you. Good men are hard to find
nowadays...or at least so it seems. I'm guessing it's the pain keeping you
up at night? Because of my bladder disease I have to urinate every 10-15
minutes, that mixed in with the chronic pain keep me up most of the night
too, so I feel you girl. I hope tonight is a good, relaxing night for you. Sweet
dreams.

Yeah, tired, but have a hard time winding down. Dr's visits went well. More blood tests ordered. I feel like a pin cushion. Honey Bunny is a Godsend! My youngest leaves at 5:30 AM for a weekend softball tournament, and he's going to pick her up and take her. I've never met a Man more compassionate. I keep waiting to wake up from the dream. He listens to me whine, moan and groan, says, "yes baby." Waits on me hand and foot. Sometime I feel guilty he's so good to me. He's got back surgery, and a foot surgery coming up soon. He was a gymnast for years, then went to elite coaching. Gymnastics eventually takes a toll on your body. I'm just hoping I'm well when his surgeries come up so that I can take care of him. Sweet story. A few weeks ago I had to go to ER around 11 PM. I didn't call him because he worries himself to a frazzle when I'm ill. When I found out they were admitting me, I knew I had to let him know. He had let his Son use his truck to move some furniture. It was so late by the time I called. About 1 AM. Instead of waking anyone up, he walked to the hospital. Took him 3 hours. Tried calling a cab, but we live in a small town, so cabs at 1 AM is like pulling teeth. I simply was speechless that he'd walk that far just to be with me. It's almost too good to be true. Like I said, I'm thinking its all a dream. He said, "I let you get away several times over the last 30 something years, I'm not making that mistake again." We were young when we met, 13 and 15. He was so busy with gymnastics, I was busy being a typical immature girl. We dated off and on through the years, but he traveled a lot, and I'm very grounded to family. Couldn't imagine being happy going from place to place, missing my parents, him traveling with the gymnastic team, etc., etc. He was also in the Marines for awhile, and we just had different plans. Now we are 45 and 47, and wish we could have all those years back together. Anyway, enough of my love story. But yes, he's amazing to say the least.

Getting up so many times at night is a combo of things. Pain, active bladder, very light sleeper....

I'm sorry to hear you go through things similar. Makes the days long and hard sometime. I throw in quick naps if I get time. If not, I just push through and hope for the best. The girls are a lot of help too, but very busy with school, sports, jobs..... Chronic pain for any reason can be very taxing mentally and physically. You know exactly what I mean. Without a strong support system, it could become extremely overwhelming. I'm a chatter box, but not always very open about being ill. I just feel that so many people struggle everyday with illness, etc., so I tend to vent mostly to family. It's their duty to listen to my moaning and groaning because I listen to theirs.

Sending you healing vibes, well wishes, and hopefully you get some rest and feel better soon. xoxoxox

Aww T, I'm smiling from ear to ear reading your story. I'm happy you found love,
it's always better late then never. It sounds to me like things worked out this
way for a reason, it was meant to be. I wish you both so much happiness.

You know, about the "speaking out" about illness thing...I find personally that
it is a good thing. Why? Because it gives some people hope. Some that are
either going through similar issues but don't know how to handle them, live
with them, be happy. Or some who find comfort in knowing they are not alone,
they open up, talk, let it out, and feel understood. I know some folks are more
private, and of course respect that. But I personally like to share what I
overcome, and my personal ways of finding strength to move forward, because
people on here reach out. So many folks suffer in silence, don't have support
systems, don't have family, or their family does not understand or care,or are
far way. It's good to have someone to talk to. And from my experience here
I have learned that once I open up, people open up to me, and we both
benefit from sharing our stories. I met very brave women on here thanks
to both sides opening up lines of communication not only about fun things,
but also about the challenging things. No one has to feel alone, there is
always someone who cares.

Thank you so much, LS!! Your kind words are truly appreciated.

I do much better at caring for a 'patient' than being a patient. I'm also better at listening to someone vent, than venting. I'm an open book, and will answer any question, but not always great at focusing on myself. Which is part of the reason I'm ill right now. Instead of taking care of me, I throw myself into caring for everyone around me. My Dr said, "Teresa, you can't do what you love to do in your condition." He said, "10 years of suffering silently is what progressed your condition." So even if I don't get better at speaking out about it, silently I will be focusing on getting well. Living in chronic pain for years is definitely not something I recommend if there are treatment options. I will be utilizing all of my options from here on out. Thanks again for your concern. I'm determined to get back to 100%!
