      Hey guys......before you list the meds that you are taking, please keep in mind that this is the internet. I hope you all are doing well.

    Hi folks, I'm still hoping to make the meeting, but without some sudden relief it doesn't look like it will happen.

      Sorry you were feeling too bad to come, Julie. Hope you're feeling better now that the sun is back :)

      Me, too. I really don't want to spend the evening with my husband. Hopefully he will make himself scarse - or I will. I'll probably see my doctor tomorrow. She usually calls out Rx's for me, but with a bad cough the nurse said too many possibilities.

    My father passed Tues n am only one to help mom w/ funeral home, service at church, some immediate legal stuff. Thought would have had break today, but more to be done than thought.

      Thanks. Was a very long year past year, but hospice was not in anyone's sights a month ago. Happy his last few days were w/ peace of mind & free of pain.

      Andrea, sorry for what you & family are also going through. I had no idea what all goes into what needs to be taken care of "after". Hope things have been getting better. :-)

    Hi everyone, I'm Eric. I'm new to the group, and I'm really hoping that I have found a place where I can meet people going through some of the same things I am. It would be really nice to find some help in coping with my pain, and at the same time be able to help someone else too. I could really use support from someone who understands the struggles involved with unrelenting pain. I have been in the hospital 3 times over the past month and am having a really hard time dealing with things as my pain is getting much worse. Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself, hopefully I will get to know some of you.

      I hope you make it to the group tomorrow, Eric!

      Thanks Anna, I appreciate it. I'll have to see how I'm feeling tomorrow, my doctors put me in a bad position this weekend so I'm not sure how I'm gonna do. Even if I can't make it tomorrow, I look forward to getting to know you, it looks like we are going through some of the same stuff, and it's interesting that we both started having problems at age 17 and are also both 29 now.
