I guess it's my turn!!

Oct 05, 2015 11:43 AM

Been up all night long. For some reason or another I was up and running to pee every 30-60 minutes. Exhausting since I have to go downstairs. If I could get down low enough, I would have brought up a bucket!! Today my skin hurts, I'm accurately aware of each joint and I have burning and itching. I got a migraine throughout the night and it won't let up. I've been sneezing my head off because I caught the cold my Father and Sister have on top of my sinus issues. My throat is getting sore from the drip, my nose is running, I'm freezing and I just want to sleep. Where is Bam Bam with his club when you need him?? LOL!!! (For those of you youngsters, that was a Flintstones reference). Anyway, I pray all of my peeps are having a peaceful day with less pain. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I send out gentle {{{{Hugs}}}} to you all for a better day if you're not feeling well. Things will get better, I know they will. They always do. I'm just frustrated and can't cope when it all piles on like this. I'll be checking in on you all to make sure you're doing ok and if you need me, remember to holler and I'll come running (well, walking.. LOL). I'm always just a keystroke away.πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸ»

Hi Alwayz, sorry it's your turn but glad you're taking it. I don't know why but people don't seem to understand exhaustion--it means Whatever It Is-- you're too tired!! Sounds like you need hot tea and rest and relief, you're poor head! I get terrible sinus pressure behind my eyes that I thought was migraines for years. Just what you needed --to catch a cold on top of a migraine, or a migraine and post nasal drip on top of a cold, and family tension!! Alwayz family be nice to Alwayz and get her tea with honey for her throat--we need her here✨ How many times I've wished for a magic pee machine from my bed 😳. I hope you find a way to relax today and the pain eases upπŸ’–

Praying for afast recovery and comfort sorry to hear about what your going through x

Oct 05, 2015 2:16 PM

Hope you get some rest soon, feel for you as exhaustion is such a downer, but as you know, it does subside in time, just not knowing how much time can be frustrating. .

Oct 05, 2015 3:10 PM

So sorry to hear that you are going through such a rough time :( It's great to see you still have your sense of humour. I definitely think that's important to have in these moments. I just need to be more like that in times of excruciating pain instead of feel sorry for myself. I hope you get over your cold soon xx wishing you a speedy recovery.

Oct 05, 2015 6:16 PM

Alwayz, I can sympathize. I have had a sinus problem causing my migraines to start and my throat to hurt, I am also sorry but I stole BAMBAM from you! If you like, you can have him back now! I also have pebbles! I divorced Barney and Married Fred and got custody of BAM BAM lol!! I pray you get some R&R and that your pain eases up soon. If you ever need to talk Alwayz I am just a message away!

Thanks all for being there for me today and sending your well wishes my way.
Peaceful, I have to say, I try hard to maintain my sense of humor no matter how bad things get. We all have pity parties and feel sorry for ourselves from time to time. (Especially when you feel like this!) I am very tired and hurting and sick and cold and yet can't close my eyes and sleep.
Marsemouse, thank you for your kind words. They touched my heart. It is nice to know that I am needed and that my presence is appreciated. It doesn't matter how sick I am, I will ALWAYS check in on my peeps and see if there is anyone who needs my help, if I can answer any questions, welcome a newbie or send someone cyber {{{Hugs}}} to give them some love and support and get them through the day. From the time I introduced myself, there were so many folks who came and reached out to me immediately. For that I will be forever grateful. I hope everyone has a restful night, wakes refreshed and with less pain. {{{Hugs}}} to you all and you're all in my thoughts and prayers.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Alwayz- you are very appreciated on this board. Hoping you feel better soon. Take it easy and get some rest. We gave to keep our group togetherπŸ‘€

Oct 05, 2015 10:35 PM

Dear Alwayz late well wishes to you. Hope you have a good night. Wish I could send a photo of running horses to cheer you up.

Oct 05, 2015 10:45 PM

I'm right there with you as far as the headache and sore throat! I pray that both of us feel better soon!

Oct 06, 2015 11:39 AM

Equinesister, just watched a video on you tube of gypsie vanner horses running, driving and riding. Always good for the soul. Thanks!❀️

Oct 06, 2015 12:10 PM

Good morning. ALWAYZ. Oh there was something I wanted to say but them my doctors office had to call and distract me.

Oh i remember now, I'm sorry that you are having such a crummy day. Exhaustion just sucks the life right out of me and I'm beginning to suspect that it affects the people around me. Whether it's bc they don't understand or we like structure and my exhaustion just throws a stench into everything. I dunno. Not sure anyone in this household knows either. But I didn't get on here to talk about me! :)

I love your reference to Bam Bam; I think I may borrow it if you don't mind
:) humor is ensuring when dealing with all that we survive on a daily basis.

Oh, I meant to ask, do you have interstitial cystitis? I'm sorry about those stairs i used to have these steep stairs in this for the most part awesome log cabin i lived in
Anyway the steep, no railing, scary stairs were what stood batten me and the bathroom. Make a night i was crawling up and scooting down the stairs. I'm sure the cats area confused as to why their human couldn't just jump up and down the stairs as they would lol.


I hope today finds. Your with a little more understanding from loved ones and a whole lot less pain (and trips to the bathroom,
If you do have IC, I am hoping you aren't having a bad flare with the severe pain that comes along with it. Having to go often is enough of a pain without the added razor blade feeling.)

Here's to Bam Bam and understanding friends
And rest! Thinking of you πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸŒΌπŸ’–

Kitty, thanks for such a wonderful and uplifting message!! Of course you can use my Bam Bam reference any time. Keeping my humor isn't always easy but it's important. I do not have IC, just a dozen or so other issues that cause chronic horrible pain. It's very hard to function with others when you're exhausted. It creates tension because other folks don't understand what we go through because they don't feel it or deal with it themselves. It's sad but a fact. Know that you can call on me any time and I'll be right here to help you out. Sending you some {{{{Hugs}}}} to get you through th day and I look forward to chatting with you. The screen I getting blurry from this migraine and throwing up didn't help that or the spasms in my neck and back. Thanks for thinking of me, it really is very much appreciated.πŸ’•

Oct 06, 2015 3:42 PM

Of course just to clarify just because your don't have IC doesn't mean that your aren't in excruciating pain. I just wondered, there's a couple people in here with it and i can never remember who.

I'm sorry about your migraine! I hate those especially the ones that come along with the vomiting. They make me consider putting my head in a door and slamming it (autocorrect came up with spanking instead of slamming it lol weirdo autocorrect. No kinky autocorrect. Haha)

Anyway, I try to keep my humor but or is quite difficult especially when looked at as if I'm just lazy or on "too many medications" usually when that starts i start tuning everything else out that they've said. I also start wishing that i wad golden the ability to give someone my illnesses and diseases until they instances what it is to live with all these illnesses/diseases most of which are "invisible" and therfore someone who doesn't know me well can look at me and say of you look great, you can't feel badly. Bwahahaa! If only it worked that way. I have illnesses the haven't even caught yet. And my doctor has told me as much. And oh joy , I get to go to pre op Tomorrow, ah for another post another day. Enough about me, I'm boring!

But I am just praying that your migraine goes away soon! I hope that you don't have 3 cats fighting while you're fighting your migraine. Although whenever I'm in bed, they're in bed with me. Weirdos. The minute I'm up to go to the bathroom or on the rare occasions I've saved enough energy to move to the living room, that's all she wrote. Lol. Ah the Joys of cats getting to know one another. Sometimes i think I am to blame and is all my fault.

Anyway sending my love from Cat Fight Land!😼😼😼😼

Alwayz I hope you are feeling better today. The runny nose and sore throat must be catching on here.I also have it , I'm thinking of making me a hot toddy tonight. I hope your bathroom run has slowed down. Sending you hugs and prayers.

Oct 09, 2015 10:02 AM

Hot Toddy!!!! Wish I was there with you. Sounds good to me!!πŸ’•πŸ˜œπŸ˜Š

Oct 09, 2015 11:34 AM

I'm just getting back on and seeing all the posts. I'm sorry you've between so sick! I do hope you're feeling better. I've got head and chest congestion. And either the medicine is causing it or my vertigo is back, but everyone I move my vision sounds in slow motion! I can't blame a hot toddy yet, haven't had reason to drink any! Lol Get well soon! (((Hugs))) πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Oct 09, 2015 12:06 PM

Feel better soon, Flappys!

Oct 09, 2015 12:14 PM

Thanks Kitty! Lol I just πŸ™πŸŒΌ saw my typo errors... Should have said, "every time I move my vision spins in slow motion!"

Oct 09, 2015 12:19 PM

LOL... It's ok I think we've all learned how to read Flappsy style! I get everything you type. (Wonder if that says something about my brain cells..hmmm).😍❀️

Oct 09, 2015 12:29 PM

Hahaha I didn't even notice your typo. I just thought, Goodness, vertigo sucks like a toilet, spinning and all that "awesomeness". Okay so there was a really cool metaphor arriving somewhere in that venture of a post but the spinning earth and shiny objects distracted me (Oh the joys of ADD! And evidentiary being on so much medicine. Ha. Ha. Ha. (I heard that one from my bf last night when he was trying to blame me for something that was ADD related. Yes, I am sick. I do take medication but don't go throwing that in my face). Lol sorry i digress and so not trying to hijack the convo.
It looks like another day in bed for me. Hopefully i can sleep! Stress and anxiety are the worst.(and the almost stepson is here and I don't rest well when he is about, worry about the cats well being etc.) Oh goodness, I'm talking about me again. (what is it do i awake with narcissistic tendencies? Lol jk)

Bless y'all heart for listening to me babble on. Lol. I will create a topic if I need to. But I don't want to complain about it. I look for solutions! When I can. Right now my solution, stay in bed. Lol.

It kind of reminds me of my favorite way to exercise. I feel the need or want to exercise and i just lie down for a bit til it subsides or i fall back asleep. Hehehe.

Feel better everyone!
The Elle comedy train is leaving the station because I'm an statist but not that funny. Haha
