It sucks to be sick on your wedding anniversary. Hubby and I spent our 17th wedding anniversay quietly and that was fine with both of us.
My daughter's surgery was rescheduled for the17th, so I will be leaving St. Petersburg on the 16th and hubby will be home to tend to the cats and the guinea pigs.
You know the one thing I miss about life before chronic illness? The ability to effectively and constructively handle any form of stress. I mean, for heaven's sake: I was a certified admin. medical assistant for many years; managed a doctor's office; assisted with walk-in emergencies (which rarely happens at all anymore) and out-patient surgeries. I thrived on stress. It was my life's blood.
But for the past many years, such has not been the case and it really frustrates me that symptoms become exacerbated and must step back and take a long breath and get lots and lots of rest. Seems like a waste of time to me; I'm not one to lay around the house with my feet up and the TV on, at all.
So, for what it's worth, I am back and will do my best to catch up on what I've missed, answer posts, welcome newbies, and post some interesting research findings regarding MG.
Thanks for bearing with me.
Test results are in (saw PCP today)
The lupus is in a slow progression.
There is a lot of death around me at this time...
Sliding into 2009 and Already, I need a Nap!
