    Hello dahlings, I am sssooo glad its Friday. uuuggghhh what a llloonnngggg, painful week

    Weather: very nice out

    Sleep: was horrible. I kept having nightmares about someone trying to kill me and hubby. I was afraid to fall back asleep

    Mood: Could be better. I am tired of this friggin pain!!! Its getting me down and its making it difficult to enjoy the holiday cheer.

    Plans: We have plans to go over to a friends house for pizza. All I can think about is how much pain I will be in and how miserable I will be. Sorry that I'm such a downer. I haven't been my self for over a year. I haven't been of much help on the board. Even though I'm not on the board as much as I used to be, I still think of you all.

    Love ya's muahs
    You may go through life hearing a 1000 NO's but don't give up because your YES is out there waiting for you.- (Something my father told me.)

    It must be terrible dealing with the pain and other symptoms from LSC (did I get It right) for a year with no relief. You have posted in the past that your doctors aren't being supportive. Is there an expert some where for your condition that you can consult. I hope you have some enjoyment tonight. &You definitly deserve it!

    Yea, you got it right. LSC. I've been to so many Dr.s that I have honestly lost count. I did find a specialist once. She treated me for over 6 months and she couldn't help me. She couldn't believe that I wasn't responding to any treatment.

    I just have to keep looking. My pain specialist has a few more procedures that they can try. If all else fails I will have no other choice but to have surgery.

    Thanks very much for your support. I really appreciate it. The poor members on this board has had to listen to me complain every day about this. But they have never let me down. Take care. hugs

    Cookie, sorry you've had such trouble this week. It's been a long one for us too. Matt has pneumonia and instead of getting better seems to be getting worse. Maybe since he's on vacation till next friday he'll get enough rest that he'll feel like going to work. The check was nice, but I hope he never has to put in another 80 hr week for a very very long time.

    Weather: It was another gorgeous sunny day. Got in the lower 80's and was sunny and clear.

    Sleep: Woke up way too early and had to take a nap before we left the hotel. Wish I could have watched some more cable, but was just too tired.

    Mood: Tired but pretty good.

    How I feel: Today was a good day. A little frustrating, but all in all a good day.

    Plans: After we checked out of the hotel we spent the last two days in as our Christmas gift to each other, went grocery shopping then crashed in front of the tv to watch Netflixes. Were having a good time till the DVD player up and died. So of course we had to go to Wal-Mart and buy a new one. Spent a little extra and got a Sony this time, so hopefully it'll last longer. We'll see. Didn't do much else. Going to bed soon. Hope everyone has a good night and a wonderful day tomorrow. Hugs.
