I feel just an overwhelming blah feeling all afternoon. After talking with the pharmacist, I got home and get an email from the doctor who ordered the lip biopsy (? Sjogrens) She said she saw the lab report but until she speaks with the pathologist she can't make a determination she's still not convinced. The report says, "Small salivary gland with minor leukocytic infiltrates consistent with Sjogrens Syndrome." What needs to be determined by that?

And I am still unsure how to handle the pain doc about the me he prescribed, which conflicts with 2 meds and 3 medical symptoms I already have to take meds for. I Sally don't think I want to take it and he probably going to dismiss me.

My husband came home and asked what was wrong with me. I told him "I'm just tired, tired of doctors, tired of medicines, tired of being sick, tired of not knowing what's making me sick!" He asked what brought this on and I just looked at him. Really? I think I'll just go to bed early. Goodnight all!

Flappsy, I can't express how very sorry I am that you are having to go through all of this.. It is frustrating all on it's own without someone asking what brought this on..... I think it's a good thing you didn't have anything that could be used as a weapon in your hand.... My Brother said something similar to that that me and I hit him in the head with the newspaper (And it was the Sunday paper so it was nice and bit and fat... LOL). I don't think he'll ever be asking me that again. I hope your able to get a peaceful night's sleep and that when you get up in the morning you face a much better day. As always, you'll be in my thoughts and prayers

That's funny AlwayZ! He's very lucky because years ago, before I got control of my temper I lost it and threw a cup across the room... Put a nice big hole in the sheetrock, and scared the daylights out of everyone, me included! Didn't know I had that in me...lol. Bad thing was it was Christmas time and everyone was coming to our house. πŸ™ˆ We temporarily covered the whole wall in shiny red paper and taped cards to it. πŸ™‰ They all went on about "what a wonderful decorating idea" it was! πŸ™Š But my hubby learned to give me space when I'm angry, so I can calm down. I'm much better controlling my temper now too.

I'm doing much better today except in my low back. I've skipped the gabapentin two days and the major dizziness is gone. I still have the same dizzy feeling I had before the gabapentin, and the imbalance is the same, no better. But the pain in my back is worse. πŸ™πŸŒΌ

It really is a nightmare when you get a reprieve on one thing but something else starts hurting worse. It's a vicious cycle and never ending. I don't know why we have to go through life like this but obviously, God has a plan for us and he has his reasons. I know it's not for me to question but sometimes it's hard not to. Perhaps all of this has helped me to become a better person over the years. I was never a selfish person and always willing to help others but I think that I have more compassion and empathy for people who struggle no matter what the situation they are struggling with. I love the decoration idea to cover the hole you made with the cup... LOL!!! I know what you mean, when I get angry, I see red and then look out. It scares people and myself so I get it. I haven't gotten that angry in a very long time. I try not to because all it does is make me feel worse and I get tense and end up with a migraine. So, I take things with a grain of salt and let it go. I hope that you have a great day. It's gorgeous here in NY and the sun is shining and it's a balmy 70 degrees with a nice breeze and everything is coming into bloom (pollen is high so I need benedryl for my sinuses... LOL). However, it's not rain, so I'll take it.
