MDJunction to me

mabri"When I was diagnosed about 18 months ago with fibromyalgia, I didn't know where to turn. I got on my computer and looked for a support group where I could talk to other people with the same disease and get some help...Information, suggestions, mostly just what I can do now that I have this.....disorder/disease/syndrome...I didn't even know what to call it. I found MDJ, and yes, there was a support group for fibro. I started a post, and figured I would never get an answer. However, very quickly I was welcomed in, and became really involved in the group. I received help, support, friendship and the feeling of being truly cared about by these strangers who had become like family to me. Now, I have been here for about a year and a half...I have become a group leader, and love every minute of it. It is so wonderful to be able to help others. I still receive help and answers from the members in this group. The fibromyalgia is where I go to help, support, listen, care and even laugh. I don't know what I would do without this group."

Okay, now I'm scared

Nov 18 2011

It's the morning of my ERCP.   After a jaunting 2 hour drive today, they will be sticking a tube down my throat to the biliary tract to take pictures.  I have two thoughts.  One, it is amazing what they can do these days.  Two..  I'm scared to death.  I have read up on the test through the doctor ( and reputable places.)  why don't I feel comfort?  I guess I'm just realizing how serious this could be too.  sludge and galls stones nothing,  but narrowing is scary.  I know what it does in my intestines,  I can't imagine how much damage it could be causing to other vital organs.  

Chron's disease has definitely given my life many twist and turns and dark voids to go through.  I wish I could say I felt like everything today was going to be JUST FINE.  I have faith that it will be, but I know there are no guarantees.  I wish my Mom could be there.  I wish my Sister would snap out of her funk ( she seems so depressed.)  and be there for me too.  I'm scared. 

God protect me today,  give me strength and allow me to not feel shaken in my faith today.  You alone know my path, and you walk with me in the good and carry me in the bad  Keep me safe today,  and watch over my husband and child.  In your name I pray- Amen
