Pushing forward

Feb 10, 2016 6:19 PM

So learning this new normal is horrid to say the least. But I'm beginning to see that this condition is not going anywhere. Many would say I'm just giving up,lossing my faith tired of fighting. Well I see that changing direction is not giving up.
If I'm gonna be in pain I might as well have something in my life to make me smile a little. In addition I won't know what my full limits are until I push them. I adventures out today and it was nice to be out doing something non medical. The last year of my life has been one surgery center doctor office or medical clinic after another. So it was nice to in a building and not be stabbed and drained of all my blood. Lol...
So even those today's trip has gotten my ribs all in an il roar.. But at least I got some sun and some really really cold freash air.

I'm glad you did something for yourself today :) Sometimes I think people expect us to either give up or get better. I like living the middle ground!

New me and you have a lot of the same systems. I hurt up under my ribs on the right side, my stomach only hurts on the right side. Just so many things hurt that I forget all of them except the parts that hurt the most.

Have they given you a fu work up? After the pneumonia. It was discovered that I have over 20 massive tumors in my uterus which have grown out of the uterus and attached to my bladder and major blood sources. In addition I may have Lupus but ehy have not settled on it yet. My ribs have just started hurting bout a week now. I have stomach pains too but mine r from the babies (thsts what we call them since most likely I'll never have kids due to them) . and I forget all the pains too because its different everyday and even tbroi the day the pain areas change.
