One more thing...

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

So, I have to go for an ultrasound later this week. I did call my doctor’s office yesterday morning about the pain I was experiencing (like she told me too)... and they got me in for an appointment yesterday afternoon. At this point she is uncertain what is causing the discomfort. She said to watch for a rash, as I am a prime candidate for shingles and due to the location of the pain, it is a vague possibility... but it is more likely to be something else. We will see. It was too late in the day yesterday to schedule the ultrasound, so the doctor’s office is supposed to schedule it and then call me this morning with the appointment time and date. And then I have a follow up appointment with the doctor in a week. Next week I will be super busy with appointments. Generally, I have multiple appointments nearly every day next week. It is going to knock me out of my routine. Cooper and I both get cranky when that happens. Oh well, it is what it is... and it will keep me busy so I can’t spend as much time dwelling on the sad anniversary of the first. (I am looking for silver linings...) I am trying not to whine about this, but I am feeling cranky and annoyed (pain... especially unidentified pain... does that to me) I will buck up and deal with it... ya’ll just get the brunt of my cranky self... because I feel like this is a safe place to vent. I am cutting back, just a tiny bit on my exercise this week while I wait for word about the source of the pain... and besides it makes it less enjoyable to be quite so active when I hurt this way... (whine, whine, whine...). lol Since, I seem to be unable to get over my cranky self this morning I will end this here... with the thought that I shared with a friend that even when we don’t feel beautiful to ourselves, if we have a good attitude we are generally perceived as lovely by others... now, I am going to go adjust my attitude by listening to some fun music, taking a walk, and when I get back I will give my dog his morning belly rubs!

    go be beautiful darlin'. And cranky. It's okay to be cranky at the anniversary of your mama's death. Probably even good to be so. Just 'cause nature needs to make room for new life by letting old life go - it don't make it fun and I hate the system for arranging it that way. I don't even like hurricanes taking down beautiful old trees. whine whine whine, LOL. crank crank crank.

    Wishing you good news from the ultrasound.

    Hey this is a safe place to vent .You made me feel better! Pain is always a bugger to deal with and I think we deal well most of the time but if we get knocked to far out of our comfort zones it sends us for a loop! I always perceive you as lovely!

    I’ve had patients that complained about pain for almost a week before the shingles rash popped out. Hope it’s not shingles, I was lucky enough to have a very minor outbreak 40 years ago.

    Whining helps, it takes your mind away from the real pain.

    Yes, a week that busy does sound stressful. I hope you're right and the schedule is helpful through this grief anniversary. Glad you have an outlet here, and that you are good at self care through this. Wishing you surprising ease and good test results.

    We are always here to listen. We all need our "whine & cry" moments. Sometimes we just need to get things off our chests & then we're fine. Hang in there!

    Praying that the source of the pain is something treatable and will go away quickly. I’m so sorry you are going through this- I can definitely relate. Hope your walk and Cooper time improved your spirits! emoticon

    Good morning! Spark People is definitely a safe place to vent. There isn't much you can do right now, so making the best of the situation and liking for silver linings is a reasonable thing to do.

    I found for myself that the hardest thing about grief is that life continues even though I want everyone to stop and acknowledge my pain. Then when I started going about my life, I felt guilty for those moments when I would forget.

    Enjoy the walk. Enjoy the sunnier days. Enjoy the pleasure you get from Cooper.
