At this point I am truly frustrated and fed up with something. How can a person who doesn't live with a chronic illness or chronic pain say they truly understand when they don't? I'm just some damn frustrated at this point. Having another MRSA flare up this weekend and scheduled to go on vacation in 1 week. Well, there is a possibility that that might not happen this time. The only thing that really works for me is IV antibiotics which means daily infusions, which means no vacation. I already know what my doctor said the last time. Person in question said, "just think positively and it will be better." I said to myself, " I know what my doc said and how this stuff affects me. Everybody is affected slightly differently so how can she tell me that it will be better." Does she not understand the hell I have been through for the last 8 months with 3 big surgeries,2 minor ones and a set of spinal injections? I just feel kind of off at this point. Don't know what is getting me down at this point, but something is and I just can't shake it.
