    Hi Kim - I am here! Was thinking about you too. Have been having an awful flare up and some questionable blood tests. Trying to see what is going on and what could help me now. I feel like I am slipping into a "funk" again, Gee, wonder why?! So sick of all of this.

    Trying to find a good Lyme doc now and my Rheumy is going to try to help me as well, which is a positive thing. Feel like I am very old these days and just want to get better, like all of us.

    I have been avoiding things I like to do lately, for whatever reason, and have not been posting much.

    How are you doing? How is the family? I hope you all ae well. Hopefully some treatment plan will get me back on track soon. Update me on what is going on with you.

    Thanks for checking on me :)

    I am going down to San Diego today to celebrate some family birthdays. I want to write more, but it will have to be tonight or tomorrow morning.

    I am sorry you are not feeling well. I am praying that everything comes back fine on your tests. I will write more later, get some rest. Kim :)

    Well, I ended up having some extra time before we head down to San Diego for dinner. (I had errands to run also). I bought my son new clothes. I would sooo love to buy myself some new clothes right now, but I am trying to diet again. I just feel uncomfortable in my clothes right now, like nothing fits well. I think I have some kind of distorted body image right now, not happy about still needing to shed 10-15 lbs, yuk!!!

    When do you get to the dr's again? I really hope you get some type of program that works for you. How long have you been dealing with the lyme? Wait, I thought you had lupus along with the fibro. Have you had some help from the family? Are the kids being helpful, and your husband? Have you got any leads on a new dr. ? Is the one you are with now not helping much, or suggesting more of a specialist?

    I really wish you could catch a break regarding your health. Something good will happen soon, I'm sure. I am going to say a prayer for you right now. Hope you at least enjoyed some of your Sunday. Let me know how your day went. Talk to ya soon. Kim :)

    Hi Kim.. sorry so long since we "talked". I had the flu then bronchitis and very down, so I have not been on much lately, but i am starting to feel a little better. How was your trip?

    How are the kids? I had to do some cooking and baking today for my sons first communion. We have a family day celebration tommorow and then the next weekend he has his communion and then we leave to go to the mountains for a family vacation. They will have a blast!

    I am on a different pain med (doc tried me out on) The good news: it worked wonderfully... have not felt that good in so long, the bad news... my isurance does not want to pay for it :-( I thought my doc would just say "Oh well, there is nothing we can do" Instead, he has sent appeal letters only to be turned down a couple of times more and then he was furious and gave me another sample pack of it and told me to call the State Commision for health care fraud (or somethinglike that) and he gave me a long detailed letter as to why I need the meds, so enclose in the dispute letter. I was so impressed and it felt so nice, to say the least, that a doctor would go to bat for me like that. I hope we win... I really do not want to go back to feeling the way I was.

    I also have this big lump under my knee that is growing, I I asked him for an injection for my "bursitis" and he said... there is no way that is bursitis, it is too far down and bursitis does not get that big and swollen. If it is not any better by Monday he will do a bine scan and an MRI. Wonder what that sucker is? After the injection it hurts so much worse then when I went in. I guess it just stirred something up and then my little 3 year old accidentally leaped on me and his bony, though cute, elbow got me right in the bad place... OUCH!! I was in tears. Poor guy did not know what he did wrong.

    Anwyay that is my recent health issues. I just pray it is not another blood clot.. that would be real bad.

    We were able to wear shorts here last week and then last night we had snow and ice. Wonder why ppl. are getting so sick :) How is the weather in CALI?

    I hope you are doing well. Fill me in on you... sorry so long.

    I can't believe what you have been going through. I just keep praying for your health to get better. Flu and bronchitis also? No wonder you have been laying low, you must be tired. Let me know what the dr. says about the bump in your leg on Monday. I am sure he will take care of things for you, it sounds like he has really been going to bat for you lately. I am so glad he is trying to help you out with your pain meds.

    How old are kids at your church when they get their first communion? Hope you are getting some help with the cooking and baking. And I really hope you are able to enjoy the family get together tomorrow.

    Maybe by the time you go to the mountains you will be feeling much better. You need some relaxation time. We did go to the mountains and rent a cabin a couple of weeks ago. It was very nice and low key. Just building snowmen, sledding and snowball fights! Hope you are able to enjoy the same. :)

    The weather here has actually been hot. But next week it may cool down again, maybe even rain. We are all doing fine, dealing with a little flu here also. I could barely get off the couch yesterday, but since I took some antibiotics, I feel better. I really can't complain after I see what you have been through. Kim, I truly hope you feel better soon and that the good Lord blesses you each and every day. I am signing off to say a prayer for you. I hope you have a good day with your son and family tomorrow. Take good care of yourself. Kim :)
