Thank You Gary
Gary, I want to Thank You for that beautiful answer. I just want to do the best thing for me. I want to do what ever can be done to push CIDP back, out of my mind,body,and soul. CIDP has seem to consume me and have taken over my life. My anxiety attacks are disabling,and Im doing all I can to only take ATIVAN on twice a day and not 4 times a day like the Dr directed me too.
I think the amount to cellcept she wanted me to take would be cellcept 500mg twice a day for one week and eventually taking 2 in the morning and two at night. would that be considered a high dose or large dose?:D
Thank-you Gary! Been sleeping really fantastic ever since I had my surgery and hope I stay this way. Nice to get sleep again!
So Emma! I see you too have a B-12 Intrinsic Factor showed positive. They do the shots in 5 days then 1 each week to bring your B-12 levels up to a high amount in your blood stream. Then they taper to either once a month or twice a month. I have to take them 2 times a month.
Just want to let you know that if you have a B-12 problem.. which is a malabsorption problem in the stomach. You may want to add Vitamin D also to your diet. I now have Vitamin D defiency also. In fact I take One A Day Multi Vitamins for Women now and ever since taking them, I feel a little better! Hope you feel better soon!
And Gary! I’m not going to stop praying for you! We need you around to keep those prayers going for us! Hugs
Thank you Gary…..
….for the kind words. I do feel better today.
Well gang, maybe we fell apart last weekend???? Any plans for this week or Norb, could you maybe ask Eva Cassidy to sing again? I love that CD you sent me. Maybe we could have a restful week with a wine and cheese and non-alcoholic drink party??? What do you think?
Stu-I’ll take another cider, no alcohol, and cinnamon stick and a couple of donuts–that is how we like our cider the best, with donuts. And Stu is making homemade donuts today-yum…….lots for everyone.
Thank-you so much Gary! I really needed that scripture and think I will read about it in my Bible. You know! I feel so selfish thinking about myself right now! I really do! There are so many people right now suffering besides me and some are probably far more worse than myself here. Am I must admit, I am having myself a bad pity party. I get spells every now and then and pity myself. Instead though, I need to try and get my mind stronger and start focusing on a fight for my life battle! Might be because I have this infection and then not sleeping and my body’s immune system has gotten weak making it hard to pick myself up. At least that is what I hope! I guess I’m gonna have to face what might be coming to me. And look at it in a different light. That no matter what happens whether it be good news or bad news, that I have to put my hands in God’s hands and let him handle my problems. Letting him help me through this! And believe in those Guardian Angels and let those Angels come into my life and guide me through all this. The only thing that might be hard for me to handle is looking at my children and them knowing the bad news if it becomes bad news. Meaning terminal cancer! I have always cried when I had to say goodbye to somebody even when they were alive. I would look at that person and cry hoping this would not be the last time I see them. Saying good bye has always been hard for me. I may have to talk to my husband tonight or over the weekend and I might not let my children know how bad it is if it get’s bad. Just talk with him the worst case scenerio. Just in case! Decide some things before hand and let him know my wishes. Lets just hope it does not get to that point, but something like this get’s your mind to thinking about alot of things. My son too is on a Submarine right now out to sea for 6 months too! And believe me.. getting him home will be impossible. My two daughters! One is a cry baby! She gets all upset about things like this and I just don’t know if I could look at her without balling in tears. They know I have a thyroid problem and they know I have a cancer but told them it was the treatable kind. May keep it that way and not say nothing else. Life has so many challenges everyday! And in not only myself but other families too!
Thank you Gary! I really needed those words and thoughts of prayer today! Now if my husband can hurry up and get home. Maybe that will cheer me up some! He has a way of getting me to laugh when I need them the most.
Cyber Hugs Gary! I too wish you well and hope they find out what is causing your CIDP! Wishing you my best!
Thank-you Gary! I pray for you also and hope that you continue to heal and I pray for Sherry today and hopes that her surgery goes well and she was able to stay calm! And I pray for my son right now whom is in the US Navy that just got called back to sea. And I pray for world peace! And I pray for all that need special prayers tonight. Whether sick, or have needs, I pray for all!
