Hi Kathy! I'm Twilightmom(Ann) from the I Miss My Mom team. I'd like to welcome you here, and give you a little introduction. We are a group who have lost our moms and are working together to get through the pain so that our lives will be healthier. We have people in all stages of grief, some recent, some distant; some to acceptance, some still working on it. We encourage posting and blogging and talking about ourselves and our moms, and we give a listening, caring, nonjudgemental ear to all. We're glad you decided to join us, and look forward to hearing from you on posts and messages. We love long posts!! Donít forget to add your birthday and special days to our Birthdays to Celebrate thread. Why don't you start a thread introducing your self and your mom, it can be as long or as short as you'd like it to be!
WOW! You are still there! I figured we'd probably never hear from each other again. I hope all is well. Hubby works nights now and I have very little time to myself but I will try to get on here more now that I know you're still here!
Hello Kathy, How have you been? I have been very tired and busy. I apologize for not commenting in so long. I haven't been using my computer lately. My biopsy came back negative for cancer, thank God. However, I still don't know why my lymph nodes are swollen, and they continue to be, sometimes painfully. But that is not the norm, so don't worry. My husband finally tired of his employer and got a new job with less pay but the good news is, he was hired by another company and will start on Monday. This is a much better paying job but he won't receive a paycheck for 2-3 weeks and we are completely tapped out. We will get by. I just hope they don't take my car away before then! I haven't payed a bill since mid Feb. due to his lack of pay. Honestly, I am completely depressed. I am trying to be positive and look forward to the good that is coming. These next few weeks are gonna be the most trying (financially) of my life. I have my boys to consider and one of them has a birthday on Friday. He has already been told not to expect much more than his birthday dinner, we will have to put off his party, etc for at least a month or more because I'll have to play catch with our bills first. The stress is causing the muscles in my neck and upper back to be tight which is causing a painful spasticity. I fight emotional eating everyday now. I struggle to exercise a few times a week. I am still taking my meds but will be out soon and will not have insurance or the 1700.00 to pay for it. Mid April I will be covered again but I know nothing about the coverage. I don't know if it will pay for my med. or what my responsibility will be. My youngest son is sick with an upper respiratory cold, which is his norm. He will be fighting this for most of the spring....I can get insurance for my boys but it will not cover them for 4-6 weeks anyway. Ah, so much to think about. I have to go and get something else on my mind. I apologize again, this time for rambling on the way I have.
