Hi All

Thanks for asking about me. I'm not lost or missing, just feeling down and so very tired.

The pain is still with me, but mostly managed with the meds. The doc gave me another pain med to take for break through pain. I feel like all I do is take pain meds, then take other meds for the side effects of the pain meds and just watch tv or sleep.

I went out today for a short ride to the cancer center lab. Woohoo, I am not having a good time. I'll know the lab results tomorrow. Hopefully my bone marrow has come back to life, and is making me some new blood cells.

I've been reading the posts, but haven't felt up to posting. I really need you guys, but also really hate to burden you with all my woes.

Hugs to all
Lisha

Hey Lisha,
NEVER! We love you and only want to see these hard days behind you. Thank goodness we have a place to go when we feel like everything is just too much to handle...and THIS is that place. :) I'm so sorry you still feel so tired and worn down from the pain meds, but give it time...you need the pain meds to heal. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers dear friend! Much love...Sue

Hello Dearhearts

Please forgive my choice of words. I do know that I am not a burden, it's just so hard sometimes. I've been feeling so down in the dumps. The pain is so tiring and it makes me feel so useless. I really do not like taking the meds, I know that I need them, but just don't want to be in that place of need.

I have not even be able to drive my car yet or go anywhere besides the cancer center. I'm trying to have some things lined up that I am looking forward too. I'm trying.

It's a lonley feeling being cooped up and drugged up...

You guys are truly my lifeline. I cannot imagine what shape I would be in without all of you. I know that however hard this is, it would be ten times harder without you.

I did have a bit of excitement yesterday, but I'll save that for another post.

Thank you for your warm and supportive replys.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday weekend.

Lots of hugs and love to you, my dear friends.
Lisha

Hi Lisha,

I know too well the feeling of being cooped up.
I hate being confined and there were times I felt
imprisoned during treatment and especially after my operation.
After the surgery, I had a tube down my nose attached to a wall.
I felt like a dog on a leash. I wanted to bark and growl like a
German Shepherd and hike my leg and pee on something.... ;).

That all seems like a distant, foggy memory now. I hope it will
be that way for you soon.

Hugs,

Jim

Keep on keepin' on!! You are a trooper-- overcomer, survivor!!!

We're all rooting for you, hope the results are good. It sure is lonely and tough getting through the days with such feelings, of pain, malaise and fatigue---rest when you need to, take the meds when you need it!!]

We're here for you even as our fellow members are here for each other---and I thank each of you for your positive feedback, last year when I needed it most!!

Many blessings and prayers for your speedy recovery!!

Susan
