I'm driving 2 hours to the hospital again, but my sis is coming with me so I think it'll be easier.

Ferretbandit I'm glad your sister is going with you. It should definitely help with the drive.

Struggling... was your post really necessary? This is a support community. If you see something you don't feel is a topic you want to discuss just move onand don't comment. For many of us a 2 hour drive to a hospital is traumatic and having someone to go with you and support you is a big deal.
I get that you are not doing well and struggling as your name suggests but please stop with the is that necessary and the this isn't about pain and shouldn't be allowed comments.
Many of us have no one else to talk to and have become friends on this community. If someone wants to share something that is allowed.
There is a no selling rule here though.
Please respect everyone when posting

Struggling,
Yes it is necessary for me to post this. It matters to me because my legs get extreme pain and I can start hallucinating so it's nice to have someone with me.
I'm sorry I didn't post what you're looking for, but I'm me.
I wasn't expecting that reaction.
If you're disappointed with this forum, have you tried others that are diagnosis specific?
I'm in a bunch of groups, but if I have med questions I usually go to one of the other forums, because a lot of people have the same information, and have recited the same treatments.
I hope you can find what you're looking for.

Struggling I don't believe that you understand what we as a community who has grown close and conserned about each other's health. Be it driving to a hospital visit, or Dr's appt. these things are important because they can cause us to stress out, and this causes us other health problems Jacks up our pain also. So yes it was necessary for ferretbandit to post it, ferretbandit I am glad that your sister is going along for the trip hopefully she will be able to help with the driving so you don't over do it and get stressed out before you get there. Will be praying for a good outcome love and hugs sent your way. Be careful on y'all trip.
