I have been sick the last few days and it is getting worse instead of better. I also stopped sleeping. I have not needed to I guess. I took some extra medication to sleep so we will see how it does this time. I am playing clarinet in the musical so if you pray please say a prayer that I make it. I feel terrible. Sad

PLEASE

THANK YOU ALL

IDNK.....I am really sorry to hear that your so sick.....maybe you need to mention to your doctor that your not sleeping.....what kind of medication do you take to help you sleep? I will certainly keep you in my prayers that you feel better soon and that you play that clarinet of yours beautifully.

So sorry that you can't sleep! I have had nights like that too. What do you take for sleep? Ativan works well on a temporary basis, that I'm told after I have been on it for a year!! Anyways, when is your musical? I do hope you feel better before it. I know that some rest will really help you! Try doing some things that calm you. I used to be able to read in bed, but ever since I've been really sick, I can't. I fall asleep guaranteed! Now staying asleep is another issue.

Hope you get lots of ZZZZZZ's

IDNK, I hope you feel better. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and I think your musical will be beautiful. Don't doubt yourself you have come so far. I hope you get some sleep. Let us know how the musical goes.

Thank you all for your posts! The musical went well. I felt horrible during it.

I am still sick with the flu or something like it.

I took a sick day today. Tomorrow I will go back to work.

I didn't even start the Imuran. If I get sick without it how am I going to be on it!?

I am worried. I am around kids all day and there are a lot of germs. Sad

You just need to give the meds a chance. You don't know how you will react while on it. Don't sabotage yourself.

IDNK....so glad to hear that the musical went well for you......don't think about the Imuran not working until you've tried it......give it a go.
