oh goodness. how these scenarios resonate with me...
welcome to the board, flutterby8244.
I'm still laughing my head off!!!! Will these resonate with all in limboland? Oh, most certainly. So sorry you've been through so much.
oh, and here's one for you:
"The doctor said he would have me on my feet in two weeks."
"And did he?"
"Yes, I had to sell the car to pay the bill."
so funny.....lmao too......imagine that this actually is what happens...
Yes.... but, at least I don't have cushings.
i'm sure many of us have had those experiences before. great job! :)
So, have they told you that stress has caused your copper levels to be so high? If you could just stop thinking about your health, your copper levels would be just fine. I'm sure there's a doctor or two that would be glad to help you with that. For $200. Well, $300 if you see my doc.
not here, not in the mood, unless that is meant to be funny, but I see no wink smiley and it sounds like your being serious.
just write lol.
don't try and fix me.
i do believe that faithHGL's comment was in the spirit of the rest of this thread.
if you read some of her other posts you will see that she knows all too well of what you have experienced and nothing else was intended except a showing of support.
that's what we do here. all of us.
too hard to tell without a large amount of emphasis....
smiley's required :)
hi again, flutterby8244,
i understand that this medium of communication does not afford one the opportunity to pick up on the subtle nuances of a face-to-face conversation, and without emoticons, things could be misinterpreted. the same is true for e-mail, texting, etc.
even so, please allow me to reassure you as one of the moderators of this group, we are a collection of compassionate individuals who suffer, laugh and cry together. and as sad as it is to see our numbers expand--because we loathe the idea that another person is struggling with an undiagnosed illness--we always welcome new members with assurances of unconditional support and it is generally a mutually beneficial relationship.
if anyone were to respond in an unkind manner to anyone's posts, that would be in direct conflict with the intent of this group and it would be dealt with immediately.
just so you know where we're coming from.
Thanks for knowing me well enough to hear the sarcastic humor in my post. When I joined this forum, I was so thankful to find a place of mutually supportive fellow limbolanders, people that cared enough to actually read my posts, hear the frustration that had become part of my everyday life, and respond with insight, wisdom, and grace, that I made a commitment to be likewise supportive to everyone who decided to share in this perilous, crazy-making journey. Most of us have been so beaten up by our illnesses, the doctors, the nurses, the insurance companies, National Health, even our own families, friends, and co-workers, that having a safe place to be ourselves and be real about our struggles seems like a priceless gift to me. When you said "that's what we do. all of us," you are right on. Thanks, again, for caring enough to know me, even in this disjointed, virtual world.
Wow, you really misread my comment, which really surprised me considering the depth of sarcasm in your humor. I meant no offense. This got me to thinking that our introduction posts get buried and I don't have a more detailed description on my profile. I think I'll repost my original introduction as a journal entry or something, that might help with misunderstandings like this in the future.
The best of everything to the both of you.
Hey, I reposted my introduction as a journal entry. If you're interested, it's there.
I could get the one about the neurologist and boy did it sound so familiar. But it was funny.
Unfortunately. I couldn't get the one with the Endocrinologist to play.
That was a real idiot Neurologist on that script. If you gave him a lobotomy he would have been smarter.
