Stress, symptoms and stuff
AnonymousNovember 7, 2007 at 1:31 am
Hi all. I usually post to CIDP, but I’m sure this affects all of us. The stress, depression, sleeplessness (note the time!), etc, takes a toll on all of us. While coping with my mom’s death, about 2 weeks ago, gets a little better each day, some days slide… like tonight. Also, to make matters worse, we are essentially waiting for my brother to die. He’s had end-stage lung cancer for more than a year and has been slipping fast. I don’t know what G-d has in mind, but this is really too much.
Anyway, my weakness is returning in a way it hasn’t for a long time. And my next treatment isn’t for another week-and-a-half.
Sometimes life s–ks. But it beats the alternative. I just have to keep reminding myself that my mom died quickly, without pain, and before she had to bury her son, which I think would have been too much for her.
G-d bless all of you who listen. You’re the best! 😀

I am so sorry about your brother. I too wonder what God’s plan is ?
Can you ask your doc to move the treatments up? Stress surely does affect the immune system and you definitely have been under stress as of late!
I hope you can get some sleep tonight and start fresh tommorrow.

The dreaded headaches are starting, I am going to call the doc to see if there is something besides tylenol. I hope the nausea stays away this time!
I just keep telling Kev to look forward the weekend when he is feeling stronger! Talk to you guys later.
