Sorry to hear you are having a bad day and sorry for the loss of your friend.

I hope you get to feel better. I can relate to the back and hip pain as that has just started for me the last 3 days and I have never had hip pain before but every bone, joint and muscle seems to hurt so I don't know if the weather has something to do with it or if it's the disease.

Try to stay positive and warm hugs from Minnesota.

Peggy

Jaxs,

You've had qite a bit to deal with over the last hours. I'm very sorry about your friend. That in itself is devastating, but to come on the heels of learning that you need a further test makes it even more difficult for you.

I'll be thinking of you and please let us know how your test turns out. Take care.

Sorry to hear you are having such a down spot at the moment, jaxs. Sorry also for the loss of your dear friend. Try to keep as positive as you can about the results of your smear. At least you are on the track of getting further information. Try and keep that positive outlook in spite of all this. Hugs to you, sweetie.
Warm wishes,
Jefa

Hi jax,

My heart goes out to you. Losing a friend, along with all that is going on... has apparently got you tied up in knots. The first place stress goes... is to the back. Hopefully, once you've been able to mourn your friend's passing... you'll be able to care for yourself. In the meantime, get the best rest possible.

Soft hugs, Susie
