I quit!



Well, I would quit if I could, but with a diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis, severe neuropathy, and a ruptured disc, I don't guess I have much say-so over very much. Tomorrow is my appointmet with Latif, my diabetic doctor. All I want to do is go the other direction to Jonesboro, to St. Bernard's Hospital and start my IVIG treatment NOW.

I guess this is the way it is going to be until we leave Sunday. There are a few things I can try, and will use them for the trip tomorrow. Alas. As before, I WILL endure. I WILL make it. Like it? Not in the least. It just will not be the most pleasant time, but for how long have I been coping with these diseases? My feet, especially the left one hurt so bad it had me back to the tears again this afteroon. A little med helped, and then while eating, I remembered I forgot to replace my patch the other day when I took it off. THAT will make a big difference right there, and I will get it on just as soon as I finish here. In fact, I stopped and put it on right now. Done. See you later.

Don't quit!

be well!

I am hopefully going to do the blood drive again this year, in January. I have to get through the holidays. Will probably 'wing' it, just as I did last year when I thought it up!

I hope you are doing well. Say hi to Jim. And why didn't you share your HOW WE MET story on my blog!?!? I wanted to hear it! :)

Oh, I can't quit. I can't be well yet, either. There is no cure, only these various treatments to try to make me feel better. My body rules. It's just that I am so tired of dealing with all this stuff, and the week before my IVIG I'm usually the weakest, and that is where I am right now. I just have to let loose with a yell against it all every now and then. It's better than stuffing it and gettig depressed.

Yeah, you've got to do the blood drive. Well, maybe. It might be good for you, too. Just wait util the holidays are over and see how you feel then. You've been real stressed lately, too.

Take good care. Love ya!
