It’s been a few days huh??? Sorry. I know you all are just dying to hear me rant and rave about something.
Today I’m just going to ask anyone and everyone one question. Please tell me why we can send a man to the moon, discover there is water on the moon (who cares, I’m not going there to get it), figure out how to send space ships around the earth but we can NOT figure out how to help people in pain.
I have had 30 different surgeries in my life. My husband says I will live forever! But, I live in pain on a daily basis. Oh, I have medications I have to take, which help but if I took all the ones prescribed … well, I think I would stay in bed forever! I have been trying to ween myself off some of these meds but when I do, boy do I suffer. They aren’t narcotics mind you. Just pills for fibermyalgia, arthritis, ostoporosis, erosion in my stomach, high cholesterol, pacemaker – so I have to take meds if my heart rate goes to high, you name it, I think I take it or have taken it. I know they work because of the way I feel if I don’t take them but the stomach issues are due to the other meds.
It’s a roller coaster and a half. I take four different things for my stomach. The meds for the bones and soft tissue are tearing the stomach up. Some of the others may tear up my liver (so far it’s okay).
Oh well, now that I’ve spilled my guts to you all again, I’ll say goodby.
I’m trying to write another book. It keeps my mind occupied, otherwise I’ll be sleeping!!!
Talk with you soon.
