Going to be having surgery August 22nd. Something with compressed/degenerated discs, cleaning up (can't remember his word) the space where the stenosis is, and some screws for instability. L4 to S1 area.

Memory isn't too good right now, been really depressed, just got my abilify shot yesterday, and just plain overwhelmed right now...

I don't even know. It would help if I had a supportive living environment but that's apparently too much to ask...

the mother doesn't want to hear about me being in pain, ever, and instead insists on demanding that I do ever single physical task that she doesn't want to do, including getting her own soda or putting away her own food and dishes if I am home. She is not incapable. She's just a lazy narcissist who chooses to hold the fact that I have nowhere else to go over my head. That's not helping the depression.

The pain isn't helping the depression. Being subpoenaed to court for an incident that happened in September (as a witness) isn't helping anything, nor is lack of sleep. Being diagnosed diabetic isn't helping anything either. Everything is getting thrown at me all at once. I can't... I just can't anymore...

I have a sleep study Thursday night because the neuro wants to see if there is any reason my sleep is so messed up. I'm just so tired and so overwhelmed at this point, it's not even worth the effort it seems to keep trying to get ahead of the problem.

I'm having a bit of a "why me" moment, and have been for a week or so honestly... and it seems like nobody irl wants to even listen except the people that get paid to listen. My friends (if you can even call them that at this point) don't really seem to care anymore. I would just hide in my house if it didn't mean being around the mother all the time.

Sorry... that was probably more than you were bargaining for, Gus...

not at all, Child~! i'm glad you could get it all out, and shared~ "a trouble shared is a trouble halved"..... environmental stressors DO make everything (feel) worse~! have you checked out the 'coping skills post i made ?? i'll give you the link here:

post #1

also, as a 'newly diagnosed' diabetes person, you might want to join our Diabetes Support thread.... some good information, and smart folks there, to help answer the questions you didn't know to ask (and your doc never offered~!)

maybe your mother is a blessing, sent to keep you out and about ? i dunno, i've become a hermit, developed severe agoraphobia, and am generally just moldering. i truly wish you could find your own apartment, if that is what you want~!

best wishes~
Gus

Has anyone heard from Kiya or Jan? I'm worried.

My brother in law moved in Saturday only to have me make a mad dash back to the hospital a few hours later in the dark. He couldn't breath and wouldn't let me call 911. I hate to think of how many red lights I ran or how fast I was going. Skidded into the ambulance Bay screaming he can't breath. They took him right in and worked on him for over 8 hours. Ended up he has pneumonia. The hospital knew he had an infection when they released him they should have done an X-ray or a CT scan. The ER did both. I sat there watching him gasping for air it wasn't pretty. The nurse said it's like his been running at full speed for hours. I drove home in a daze and told hubby what happened and broke down. Now he is being released and we don't want him here this was my worse nightmare and now I feel bad he was going home and he's scared but lord I am sick to and people think because I don't work that I just sit on my butt all day. So we told him this would not be the best place for him. He's upset and now I feel real bad because he is my husband's brother. I just don't know what to do anymore

Take care everyone

Cake, it is NOT your responsibility to take care of everyone else! Life is like what flight attendants say about oxygen masks. You have to put yours on before you can help anyone else.

Let your husband take care of his brother or find some other solution to the problem. I know you worry about your daughter and he idiot boyfriend, but you need to set some boundaries with her yourself. Until you set some boundaries - and stick to them - your family is going to continue to take advantage of you.

i heard that Kiya is in the hospital, some kind of medical malfeasance... i didn't hear how she's doing, sadly~

Jan had a bad fall and is all bruised up and maybe cracked her arm...

apparently it's been a bad week for a lot of people~

Cake, sometimes caring too much is a sign of not understanding...
you do what you can, and 'fate' takes care of the rest~

Maybe, just maybe I am finally learning to accept limits on what I can do. I spent Friday busting my b-hind working at my Mom's house trying to get it ready to go on the market. Went back yesterday planning to do more. I was exhausted and sore when I got there. I decided the heavy physical stuff was going to have to wait. I loaded some small furniture items I want to keep in my truck. Did a walk through of the house starting to plan what else I'm going to bring home and what I want to get rid of. Then came home and unloaded the truck and crashed for the rest of the afternoon. Giving myself kudos for taking care of me.
