1 year anniversay

One year ago tonight my sisters being you were sitting up with me helping me threw the dreaded prep and I me dreaded. I had such a violent time that night. I was so sick. I think back to the hand holding you did in the chat room that night and how you stayed with me til three that morning. Well its been one year now since my hysterectomy and I dreamed of Sunny days ahead. Never to think that I would have to be still relieing heavy on this site not that thats a bad thing mind you. I figured I would be on the helping side by now not being still the helpee. Since all this mess I have had three surgies, one admission many trips to the emerg, a chemical reaction to the HRT that made me sucidal and many of you help pull me threw those scary few days. Thank you Only then to have a stroke from the HRT because of all this mess I now suffer seizures. I have 6 specialists now on my case oh joy

Its a New Year and guess what I will have to have surgery number 4. I have graduated from wearing pads 12 to 14 days a months to having to wear poise pads daily now. I can't move , laugh , cry or do anything and my bloody bladder gives out. I did everything they told me to do all the dos and don't and what did I recieve in return but my honey of a hernia returns with a frienzy. I am in constant pain and holding my belly. So off to the castle I will be going again.

All of this mess has caused me a job that I loved so dearly and to some extent slowed my life down. The only thing I can say is good is that I have lost weight, I have no periods and I have many wonderful friends here.

Nothern Wolf (Debbie) I miss the chats.

Thank you for all your support and I hope I conture to get it

I am so sorry that medical problems keep finding you in spite of your best efforts to take care of yourself. Just isn't fair.

I have not been through near the ringer that you have and still I find myself angry at times and depressed at others and with few people who can understand what it is really like. I have some really great people in my life who love me, but I find myself at times feeling isolated in a crowed room.

So, I too am most greatful for the loving support of my sisters. Without this site, I just don't know what I would do. There is stregnth in numbers. God Bless Kathy Kelley for her vision.

Take care!!!

isolated in a room

I do understand the isolated feeling on times. None of my friends understand what I have gone threw some of my close ones try and understand. The sad thing is my closest is now my furthest since my surgery. She growls it can't be that bad when I have a Hot Flash and each time I come home from a surgery she couldn't understand why I wasn't up and running in ammater of 3 to 5 days. Because she was after having a section. The only time she got a fright was when I had the stroke and she heard me on the phone and I had lost my speech.

I have come to learn who my true friends are since this first surgery and the other surgeries and the rest of the mess. Its frustrating as hell when the menopause symptoms hit and they look at me. I try and chuckle it off but there are times when I cry when I am alone. Since all this happened I feel like I am 90 not the 35 that I am. Esppecially on the mornings that I can't raise my body out out bed from the pain or I am having a really bad day with brain fog.
