I went to a bridal shower for my neice on Saturday night, one of the few times I've been out, and the sister in law that always sticks her foot in her mouth really got to me. She kept pestering me about how much I weighed and I wouldn't tell her. I have lost 35 lbs since May, but I'm still a little overweight. She is very small, and has a real obsession with weight. She always asks everyone how much they weigh. Well, this hapened as soon as I walked in the door. Then, my neice that's getting married was telling everyone she is going to become a LPN. Well, my sister in law goes into this big discussion that she could never do that because she couldn't clean someone else's butt. I just got up and walked in another room and started crying. I still have a lot of emotions connected with this colostomy thing. Well, later she asks if she hurt my feelings somehow. I said no, that it was just me, which is probably more true than I'd like to admit. Then the next day I had stomach pain all day and thought it was because I had ate so much at the shower. But... after talking to the doctor on call and finally the urologist, I find out that my cathether is stopped up and urine is backing up in me causing the pain. When I got to the emergency room they actually drew 800 cc of urine out of me. They said you start to hurt at around 300cc and they said my bladder could has burst. What next!!!! No wonder I cry all the time. Then my husband yelled at me the next day because I accidentally dropped some bread in the floor. I told him if it upset him that much that I'd go buy a new loaf. I think he's on edge because I am. Sorry, this was so long. Do you think I'm over reacting, or should I still be teary eyed????? Help!!
