There was a time when I could not walk, let alone get out of bed. Improvements vary each day, and I take about 10 meds and some supplements. They put me on Meth recently since that horrid insurance some of us have, has a cap. Almost fainted the other day going to my docs appt. My husband picked me up, and the unsupportive sister asked why I was not taken to the hospital. This is one of her sarcastic responses, that I can not stand. Oh, can she be mean! Anyways, my sister has not called to see how I am doing. I was suppose to have Mom for the weekend and was NOT FEELING WELL AT ALL! ONE OF THOSE DAYS WHEN YOU WANT TO CALL AN AMBULANCE because you feel like dying!!! Right now, I am extremely fatigued from the med change, but had to put this message on the board for some moral support. I have had enough with this uncaring sister! We are four years apart and were very close. I have another sister and we are 16 apart. It was like a roller coaster with her, but our relationship has changed in a positive way lately. Could not have a better husband, very fortunate, but we have our moments as well. Everything is not perfect. Mom has moderate Alzs, and still knows who we are. There used to be a time when I was only able to call her by phone due to this dd. But I have on occasion been able to have Mom over for the weekend or more. I am doing the best that I can! I am sorry about this pity story. I understand that having mom in her home with a caregiver is extremely stressful. But hello, I have this dd, that I have no control over, and doc saids it has gotten worse! Awhile back a clinical social worker and a bereavement counselor from my dads hospice told me that my sisters, and others may never understand fms. This has bothered me for awhile, and know I need to see a counselor again to cope with this matter. Mom has been in and out of the hospital. I have had these horrible flare ups and adverse effects from new meds and getting off old ones. Etc..... I used to cry forever about this issue, but have managed to develop a little spine. So sad that some of us have to go through this, isn't it enough that we have to endure this DD!!!!!and have to deal with this too! Sincerely Chungiedolor Thank you for listening! Anything that has helped you would be appreciated! Talking just gets us in an argument. I have also sent them the non=believers letter, nada!
