Pity party - table for one

Jan 31, 2016 11:07 PM

I'm not having a good day. Don't get me wrong, I am super glad things like ms, tumours and masses are ruled out. I'm just so frustrated with the not knowing. I have no idea how long this limbo will be. I know there are people worse off than me and I am not wanting to offend anyone. I am scared I'm going to lose use of my hands and/or my left leg. I wish I could wake up without a headache. :( Thanks for letting me get that out.

CDN, I understand. Not knowing and waiting around. It's hard. The good thing is that bad things are ruled out. (The real bad things). Anyway, I hope that you cheer up. I don't want to see you be blue. Why don't you come on Facebook messenger with us and have inappropriate conversations. Laughter is good for you. {{{Hugs}} 💕🙏🏻🌻

Limbo is a difficult place to be. One would think in this highly technical 🌎 that finding out what's wrong with you wouldn't take so long. I wish I take all your symptoms and pain away and you could just go on with a healthy life. Hang in there, an answer exists.

Table for two!! I'll join ya! Don't worry so much about how bad it can be, because you can't tell the future and worrying exacerbates pain! Rome was not built in one day, it will take time and hard work to find answers! I believe that people that live through chronic pain are the strongest humans! We are able to survive and live lives in conditions where a lot of people up! You can do this I believe in you!

CDNgirl, Waiting is the toughest. It took over a year to get answers for various problems I have. And the waiting caused stressed which increased the pain. Pity parties are allowed, but move over because I'm sure many of us could join at various times. 😉 Try doing some gentle stretches, relaxation, coloring, games, anything that can help detour your thoughts to feel better and not worry. Even if you can only do activities for short periods, keeping occupied leaves less room for the stress to take over. I'm sending you hugs, love, & prayers that you won't have to wait over a year to get your answers! 🙂🙏💕🌼

Cdngirl..can I please pull up a chair.. No one should party alone..especially a pitty party..although I dont see a pitty party. I see a person who was living a perfectly normal life providing and loving a d living.. And now has been forced to stop and focus on a secret enemy attacking her body and no one seems to know what not who or how this started.
All u want and need are answers so u can know how to fight it..I'm with u right beside u. Can ubpass the the tea and now the rum.. Let's just sit her a s watch snapped and drink and eat chocolate fudge Carmel cake.. Ha..
