Toni, you have my utmost sympathy for what you are going through just
now. It is just awful when you feel that you have no support from those
closest to you. I have found that I try to protect my husband from what
I am feeling as he gets upset when he knows that I am in pain as he can
do nothing for me. Then I get cross, because I can cover up so well,
that he doesn't know anything is wrong, while I am busy feeling rotten!
He really can't win. It is our 7 year anniversay tomorrow, so we have
some way to go until we reach your grand total!
I am going for surgery in early december for division of adhesions, and
to try to remove my remaining ovary which has a large cyst on it. The
last time that they tried to remove my ovary, they couldn't as it was
stuck down. I hope they get it out this time! In the meantime I'm
struggling with the insomnia that so many of us has. I think that it is
the pain that wakens me, and then I can't get back to sleep.It is
difficult to have a balance between painkillers that make you woozy, and
being able to continue working.
A final thought - 'once in a blue moon' is also an expression used in
Scotland. Blue Moon was also the name of the shop that I bought my
wedding dress from - I thought that that was a clever name!
Take care all,
