Anyway, it's a great feeling to know I can come here and whine to my friends. You are all awesome in your own ways and thanks for letting me get at least some of that off my chest.

If at all possible, take a break from doctors for a couple of weeks. You need the rest. I postponed my skin graft from Monday to 5/12. I need to get over these hives first. We all need a break every now and then.
Postpone a couple of non urgent visits and get away for a long weekend with the husband.
It is what it is...........

Is there time for fun like Snowbird suggested? Maybe a pedicure.
Do something for yourself to give yourself a big hug.
Hug from me,

I fell pretty bad this morning. I woke up at 4 am last night, fell back asleep around 5:00 and had some pretty crazy dreams. Then I woke up with my "friend".
Tru I cancelled my blood work appointment that I had today. Thanks for the advice, because that is something that I can put off for now. As for the other 10000 appointments, I'm going to spread them out over the next month. I made the mistake of booking back to back appointments yesterday, just trying to get them out of the way and it knocked me for a loop. That and stopping by to see my Mom. Our relationship is strained to say the least so I think the stress level was code red yesterday Lol
Hubby will be away this weekend but our 2 year anniversary is in June so we are definitely going away somewhere. And we are vowing no talk of illness that week.
Love you all!!!

smac: thanks for the advice. I was watching cartoons all night. I know it's juvenile but it takes me back to my young vibrant healthy days and I get lost in it
And a big hug and thank you to everyone who posted.

Back atcha... All the support you were showing me... is definitely there for you...only posting a bit late... reasons on previous posting
I'm so glad we all have each other to "talk to"... that's the GOOD part!
Oh boy.... I'm late for the whine and cheese party It IS Friday though, if that's of any significance to anyone! lol
tru, I agree! Great idea... about cancelling non-urgent app'ts...
My saving grace... is the doses of grandsons I'm getting on a regular basis. The 3 mo-old, Brayden... is really talking and so badly wants to get up and run! He just popped through a tooth last Friday and it looks like that other tooth is going to break through today! His mama brought Papa mini muffins to snack on... oh how she knows the way to HIS heart!

And yes, there are many things one can do to cheer up. I went and had a spa pedicure last week and it was amazing. The massage alone was well worth it. Not to mention having pretty pink toes
I went and got my blood work overwith today. I counted 13 vials by the time they were done. I'm surprised there's any blood left in me now. You'd think Dracula had his way with me Lol

Thats great that you got out with your mom and had fun. It's a good idea to drop the illness from the conversation and just not focus on it 24/7. I can't really do that with my mom, its all she wants to talk about when we're together and it starts to make me more nervous than I already am. I know shes worried and means well but I can only handle her in small infrequent doses if ya get my drift
Glad you didn't notice any black outfits in the room. I think I'll bring a garlic necklace with me next time Lol. The nurse that drew my blood had to write my name on all the vials she took and turned around and said to me "thank goodness you have a short last name" Hahaha! If I were still using my maiden name we would have been there all afternoon
