  1. Truman I agree with what you mentioned to Emmy. yes it is hard for parents to understand when they do not know how to handle it. I to use to argue with my oldest son we would bump head alot we are so much alike, but what one day out of the blue he told me thank you for being there for him when he needed me the most. He said I did the best job I could for our fmaily I had raised my children by myself. Emmie, I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that you and your mom can come to gether and get this all worked out. Alot of what everyones is mentioning would be great for your mom to do. So dont give up be patient and jsut let her know and keep giving her information to read. Love and hugs Sam
  2. Thanks everyone, this morning I'm still having pain from my neck on down, the hips see, to be ok this morning, but it still hurts in my knees on down into my feet. all away around. Going to do nothing today but rest, too cold to go out and we got ice last night, So there no reason for me to go anywhere. Well just wanted to update you all Sam
  3. I woke up with really bad pain from my hips down into my legs. My knees hurt like crazy I can hardly walk. Going to cal the doctor in a bit I might just go to the emergency room. Well I will let you know what is going on, It hurts to lay down its to stand and walk . I took my pain med and it didn't even trouch it. Took a celbrex earlier this morning around 3:00 it did nothing for me. Sam
  4. Well I was working out from March until August three times aweek and I was feeling ok but still had some aches and pains but I knew wht my limit was and I listen to my body, I do want to get back in working out but at this moment I am going to take it easy until I feel some what better. Tonight my neice said Oh Aunt Sam your face is so swollen. She couldn't beleive how my face has swelled up. I have a buddah belly going on too, LOL!! Well all Im getting tired the meds are kicking in and I'm not sure of what I had typed makes sense or not if not I am sorry its the medicine. Have agood night. Sam
  5. Emmie I am sorry to hear that you have to go through that, it sounds like mom is scared and doesn't realy know how to react. My mom use to say to me your always tired and dont feel good. Then she went to the doctors with me and realized I was not faking. I use to get sick when I was growing up. Never felt good. Took naps everyday and I still do. My dad thought I was lazy until I had gone into the hospital for some medical problems I was having. now they know how I feel and they support me . Is there a support group that you and your family can go to, maybe seek some family consult would help. Has your mom ever came on here and read the post. Well Emmie, It sounds like you have a good head on your shoulder. Try not to let it stress you out to much. you take care and know we are her for you anytime... Love and hugs Sam from Ohio
  6. You ladies are too funny. I havent had that done I dont think what is like a laproscopic procedure? Where they go in a take a biopsy? I had that done years ago and that is when they found cancer. I had to get a hysterectomy when I was 26 years old. Cervical cancer rund in my family as well as breast cancer too. Well Vee, keep us updated on what is going on. Sam
  7. thanks Sweet, right now aI feel really weird I know its from the steroid pills and pain pill. I seem that I can not concetrate like I should. I almost empty my food on to the stove but I needed to go take it to the strainer and emptied it, I 'm glad I caught myself. I told howie he better keep an eye on me. LOL!! Well take care and I see your computer is fixed now, that is good.
  8. He told me I am having a flair, and he put me on some steroid dose pac and some pain pills and a muscler relaxer, I hav eto go back next week. He also wants me to go to therapy. I relaly dont see any good in it, everytime I go I have to quit it makes me ache even more. Well just wanted to update. Take care, Sam
  9. wow that is a blow... I think you need to discuss somethings with your mother its sounds to me that she will be better off at assistant living. I heard good things about them. We had cared for my grandma before she passed on we all took turns and she got to be in her own home. What gets me is when a child will say no they won't help take care of a parent.. That drives me crazy. I'm sorry that you in this predictment, hope things works out for you,. Sam
  10. I use AYR saline nasal gel, it doesn't cost alot and works very well especially this time of year. You can buy it at any pharmacy or major drug chain.
  11. Try water therapy that is what I did. Hope you can get some answers when you see your doctor.
  12. No my appointment isnt until Thursday morning, I have my days confused. I see my son today though YAY!!! Thanks Sam
  13. skin tightening, I think my elbow area is tightening and my thighs and back of my legs it just feel kind tight. I will find out more on the 6th when I see the rheumatologist. take care, sAm
  14. Thanks Mary, I get to see my sclero doctor tomorrow morning, I can't wait to see what he is going to. My skin feeling like it is tightening up. Maybe its jsut in my head but I dont know. I hope it isnt. I was diagnosis with sclero back in 1996. You would think it would of done that back then, maybe those epidural shots did something to my immune system. Who knows, I'm sorry to hear about your limp. I was having relaly bad problems with my hips back a few years ago, I did go get a cane and it helped me alot. Well take care, sam

    I have been wondering myself. I hope feeling better. Sam
  16. Good early morning all. Well I woke up out of a dead sleep and I hurt. When I got up to use the restroom ouch!! I'm limping now. Not a hppy camper. I took a anti flamatory and hopes it will help. I have no pain meds here, I so can not wait to see my sclero doctor and see what he wants to do. I know one thing I dont want any more shots. My body can't handle them. Well I'm gonna go try and go back to sleep. It's 3:18 in the morning. I want to go to worship services in the morning. Its been awhile since I have gone. Well anyways wish me luck falling back to sleep. Sam

They even have a recipe for diabetic hard rock candy. I'm gonna make some for my parents., Well just wanted share some thing fun and exciting for me. Sam
  22. He suggested to me to contact my rheumatologist and get in, he thinks I am having a flare up among other things. So that is what I did and left a message for them to call me back. I did get more blood work now today too. So now I have to sit here and wait for a call. I hate waiting for a call. I have to take my son to work because month ago he wrecked his car and still doesn't have one to replace it. He was using my jeep but he was going to places he wasn't supose to do and he let someone smoke in my jeep and I hate that more than anything. Well enough of that it will get my blood a boiling. Well I just wanted to let you all know what is going on, I am going to try and stay off the computer for a few dyas and try to relax and get some much needed rest. I am exhausted., Sam
