Just a quick note to say hi! Hello Sara, nice to see you back on the depression. You always give good advice.
Hope you feel better soon!
Just a quick note to say hi! sara I was reading something in a medical write up. like the pace makers they put on youreart. they are now putting them in the brain to stimulate the part of the brain that is not working properly. they are doing miracles now. I thought about you when I read this. good luck sweetie. love Charlene (mandy876)
Hope you feel better soon! how are you doing. have you seen your surgeon. hope everything works out good. my thought are with you. love Charlene (mandy876)
Just a quick note to say hi! Thank you for your kind comments about my photos
Just a quick note to say hi! Sara I think I have solved the photo problem and managed to get them in view now.
You deserve a big bear hug! Poor you to see so many different neurologists. You must spend all your time at the hospital. I do hope they can help with all your pain. I admire the way you help others here when you must be in so much pain yourself. You are an example to us all.
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. I hope and pray all this will help you. my thoughts and prayers are with you. have they scheduled your surgery yet? god luck. charlene
Hope you feel better soon! sara, I do hope the surgeon can alleviate your facial pain.
You have such a lot of pain to bear daily, and I have never seen you complain. You always have a kind word to say to others. You are a much better person than I. Yes I try to send a kind and understanding to others, but you are so much better than I.
You deserve to feel better after all you have been through.
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. I justread your notethsat you are going to have trigeminal neuragjia is this for your migraines. I hope that it works. good luck my prayers are with you. let me know when you feel like it. your friend Charlene
Just a quick note to say hi! Sara I do hope you are feeling OK today and things are not too hard. I admire the way you cope with all your problems, and yet at the same time help others through theirs.
Sara how are you? thank you for responding to my post, i became a member here the day i wrote it and never remembered the site to write u back... Dec 31th was the last time i took a painkiller and feeling a lot better now, doctors never figured out was it was. I am going to a headache center in a few days to possibly get some answers. The entire ordeal was about 40 days for me and i am left currently in the dark as to what happened to me...

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today
. Thanks Sara. I keep hit with more health issues, including a tooth problem. I don't know how much more I can take. I'm overwhelmed and miserable. I can only pray and keep trying, but i am in pain almost everywhere at this point.
How r u doing? How are the headaches?
Aw, well thanks! I truly love it here. I have been posting since 2008, and for a few years now have been honored to be the community leader in several forums. I enjoy it! I feel the same way about your posts, they are very helpful, and very compassionate. It's nice to see someone who understands just how meds can really help a person...all too often we just have the people who are pro-meds or anti-meds. Thanks again! Look forward to seeing you around!
Hey! We all make mistakes, no biggie!
Thank you for all your help on the Depression forum! Your posts are very helpful!
Thank you so much sara. God bless you for caring. If you look at my profile you can find out more. Like you, I have so much pain. Today I almost went to the ER. I am really scared. It seems the more I try to walk or sit up and do anything, the more I hurt. My back is such a disaster, and I have a lot of swelling of my legs and feet and a huge lump in my thigh as big as a grapefruit. I'm scared I have some kind of tumor, and we have issues with insurance (that we pay a fortune for) to get tests done. I don't know if I can even tolerate an MRI with all this pain and no medication to help it. Let me know how you are doing.
Do you take pain pills? I am allergic to them, and the doctors don't give me any alternatives. It's so hard to live this way.
Hello Sara, are you referring to Feverfew? That's the only herbal I'm aware of for migraines and I had forgotten about that. Thanks for getting back and have a relaxing Monday.
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for your informative posts. I'm new to this forum. Hope you are doing well at the moment.
Hey Sara, how are you? My son is 25 (my only child) and he moved to China to get a better job (he has a Masters Degree in Mandarin Chinese) He has been there before to study, but now he is moving permanently for a job and his gf (girlfriend). We are very close and he helped me with my sadness and isolation by spending time talking to me. watching TV, sports, etc. He would go out and get me a sandwich, etc.
My husband is very quiet and, although he helps me physically and does the shopping and cooking, takes me to the doctors, etc.he prefers to spend his time with the dog or just doing his own things. I feel so isolated because I can't walk much or even sit long so I lie in bed and it's isolating and depressing. My son always came in my room to see me. My husband goes out.
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today.
Have a good weekend sara, I'm here alone, but trying to watch tv or listen to music. I'm so tired of all this pain and laying down all the time. I want to DO something active, but the body won't let me! Frustrating! I miss my son, but he has to do his thing in China with the gf.
I didn't get any sleep last nite--it was horrible--if I have too much pain. the sleeping pills don't work.
Anyway, take care.
You deserve a big bear hug!
Bad pain today--I want to write more==will talk later, I'm just so sad because my son's leaving Wed.
Hope you're feeling ok.
I used to have constant migraines until menopause. Now I have joint pain and swelling, back and neck issues--I was born with scoliosis so now, at 56, my back is totally degenerated. I also have HBP, high cholesterol, arthritis (autoimmune) and recently diagnosed with diabetes, I have chronic pain. I can only walk a few minutes.
I know they have new drugs for migraines--have they worked for you? I'm not a drug person myself--they all make me vomit, so I live in constant pain. Bu I remember those headaches---I'm sorry.
Just a quick note to say hi! How are you doing? I am not too good--lots of problems and my son is moving to China! I'm so sad! Anyway, I hope you are feeling OK.
You deserve a big bear hug!
Thank you for everything! You have done so much to help& encourage me! Hope you're ok!
I hope you forgive me for disappearing when you've been so kind and helpful, wish you all the best!
