Dear sweet Val,
I am sending up prayers right now so you will
have the comfort and support you need to go to the
Dr.s and that they are willing to help you with your pain! :-) Just
preparing yourself for the visit can be
exhausting and mentally draining believe me I
understand! I will not be going to any Dr.s until it becomes life
threatining and then I still might not go then either. I even had a
surgeon tell me they wouldn't do anything until I had a bowel obstuction
anyway! I have lost all faith in the medical profession and I can't take
anymore of what they have said and done to me over the last couple of
years :-( I even had a gastro Dr. tell me nobody wanted to touch me
because I was a law suit waiting to happen because of my adhesions! I am
sorry but I get sooo
mad when I even think about it! I just hope and pray that
you find a caring and compassionate Dr. that is well
informed about adhesions! I can relate to how you feel
about your mom cause my mother-in-law thinks she knows
it all and has had it all but believe me she has No Clue
about adhesions! She went with me to the Dr.s once and
she asked him if it could be stress and my diet! I could
have just crawled under the table! Needless to say I do
not tell her I am going to the Dr.s anymore until after I have gone! So
I will say alittle prayer that your mom
won't say something that might hurt your plea for help because we all do
need someone there to validate or pain!
I am very lucky because my husband won't even let me go
to the Dr.s without him anymore-he is my guardian Angel!Please let us
know how it goes for ya! Big Pain Free Hugs Coming to Ya!!
A Prayer For Relief
Send down your angel who in his mercy gives comfort and
relief to those who suffer. Let the sick and infirm be
healed. Lighten and relieve their pain. Let them have
respite from suffering that they may see your light.
Let healing come swiftly with the dawn.Blessed are you,
O Lord, who uphold the sick on their bed of Sorrow! May
their days once more be good and their years be Happy!
Blessed are you, who uphold, save, and restore the sick.
