Good morning, I'm new to the site and I have been suffering with fibromyalgia and many more chronic illnesses for years and I am now fighting the state for my disability benefits and trying like the dickens to get some real insurance since I'm not working and don't have the money to buy any of this stupid "Obama care" ugh! I'm 44 years old and I've been married to a wonderful man for over 20 years now. We have 2 daughters and a grandson by my oldest daughter. Stress causes my conditions to flare sometimes very severely causing me to be in bed for several days. So we try very hard to keep the drama down at the house unfortunately my oldest daughter is a drama queen and her husband is the biggest drama KING ever! Because he has done some very serious things to us as a family, he even hit me in front of my daughter and they both walked away while telling me that I would never see my grandson again. So this has been the theme of my life since my grandson was born in June of 2015.
I have to make the difficult decision on the 10th of this month to have my sweet dog Bella euthanized, it was very sudden and it has been very hard. I think about her everyday, she was my shadow for 4 wonderful years. So that is kinda my life right now outside of the daily freaking pain. But we all know about that ugh ugh ugh! Thanks for listening to me dump!!! πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’

Welcome to the chaos and madness of our kingdom Julie. I am sorry that things have been so hard. It's so devistating when our precious fur babies cross the rainbow bridge. It's one of the hardest decisions we have to make in life. Such an adorable pup Bella was. I have no doubt you miss her. Just know there are many wonderful people here who are here to help. I hope you find the support and comfort you seek. πŸ’•πŸ˜Š

I have a 19 year old cat, Blitzy. He will not be with us long. He is a far cry from the blitz of black he used to be as he played. He gets a little frisky some times protecting his yard and sniffing up the two female cats who are his harem. Otherwise he walks on decrepit spindly legs like an very old gentleman. Doesn't eat or drink too much. Sleeps where ever he finds cuddles and heat

Not sure how I missed your thread JulieK, but welcome to our family community! I'm sorry about Bella. We had to put our Max down in 2014 due to terminal cancer in his liver. It hurts, I know. We found a new baby, Bear in Oct 2015, and he's so different but healed my heart to love again. .. Something I didn't think could happen. Sending you hugs love & prayers as you walk though the disability jungle. I'm still waiting for a decision, after losing my ability to work in 2010. πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Such sweet sad stories... Always a great thing to have wonderful memories to fall back on. I can't thank you all so much for sharing your furbaby stories with me. I know how hard it can be dealing with the loss. You guys are amazing... Even on a day like today when I am feeling my worst like today... You all always know how to put a smile on my face!!! Thank you all so much! This is one of my favorite pictures of Bella she didn't like cameras and would hide most of the time.... But I lucked out this time! Soft hugs friends!

JulieK what a great shot. My dog hates the camera as well. I follow her and she'll just turn her head the other way. When I follow, she turns the other. Then she'll give me a look like, really?!?' And walk away..LOL!! They are all characters in their own right.πŸ€—πŸ’•
