On 12/20/12, my sweet, sweet dog, Sampson, died. I have been heartbroken since. Every thing I do and everywhere I look reminds me of him. We have had dogs before but I have never attached to one like I did to this gentle giant of a dog.
Near the end (for more than a month), he refused to eat any dog food so he ate like the rest of the family It was a big chore getting him to take his medicine. He had severe hip dysplasia also and needed a strong NSAID. He could smell it wherever I hid it in his food.
If you've ever attached yourself to an animal, you will know how I feel. Hopefully the pain will lessen with time.
I hope that all of you had a great Christmas day or a Happy Hanukkah.
May 2013 bring you relief from pain and the joy of great friendships.
I think you're right as I have been slowly more and more depressed since I stopped working. I think I will look for a part time or temporary job after the holidays.
This year, I just wish they were over. It's hard when you're short of energy and money. Well, my son has been telling me I spend too much on the grandkids.
there is a school in Kenya made out of sticks and mud that I am supporting. I like to think of the children when I am down and trying to get up out of the funk. They need a school built out of concrete but the money is so hard to get together. Still they are happy for anything that is done for them.
Welcome to the community. Your story is mindboggling. I am so sorry that you have had to suffer so much. No one should have to go through all that pain.
The seizures sound awful. I pray that all of the tests will reveal a cure for them, that your fibro is under control so that you can have many, many more normal days and that you get to spend a lot of them at the beach.
