  1. I too went through a marriage with this illness. I went through a divorce but, now I have met someone and am engaged to be married. I also felt my x-husband was not very supportive. After taking the time to go through some counseling, I realized (in my case) I was actually not being very fair to the X with my constant demands and was probably just too wrapped up in me and my illness and just basically looked for any excuse not to appreaciate anything he did or tried to do for me. I guess I became my own worse enemy. I expected the X to give me constant attention 24/7, ignoring the fact th
  2. Rama, Good point and I do appreciate your input. It just seems that any traveling takes a toll on me in some way shape or form. I do like your attitude! Ana, Thank you for your good wishes! I know I have time to figure out what is best for me--I just want to make an informed decision. I guess I just worry alot. I would like to be able to enjoy our wedding trip and not be miserable---really don't want to start out a marriage that way. I know a ship, in it's own way, would be relaxing. On the other hand, middle of the ocean, lots of people in close quarters could open up a can of worms fo
  3. I just recently got engaged (Christmas) and although we haven't set a wedding date yet, we are trying to figure out, taking my illness into consideration, what the best options would be for a little honeymoon trip. My fiance suggested the possibility of a cruise. Although it sounds lovely and relaxing, I'm a little concerned with being in the middle of the ocean and having one of my miserable POTS flares with limited medical services available. Would we be better off planning a "land" vacation or, should we just throw caution to the wind and go for a cruise? I know either way a flight will
  4. It could be a change in your diet. Maybe you're just not eating the same as you were before your virus. I've lost about 10 lbs. the last few months but I'm attributing that to my divorce, clipping coupons to save on groceries, being depressed and just trying to save money on groceries and only buy what's really necessary. I have to cut back somewhere so it's groceries. It's hard not knowing if you're going to have enough money to pay your bills every month and I worry about that so that doesn't help. And the depression comes from seeing that my x-husband has just easily gone on with his l
  5. I've been working full-time and continue to do so although, not by choice. I have no other way to support myself so it's either work or be homeless. I do have difficult days but somehow I manage to get through them.
  6. I do but it can be difficult at times. There are days where I'd just like to stay in bed and not show up but, being on my own makes that impossible. I have missed 3 days this week because of coming down with the flu and will be out the remainder of the week since I'm still feeling like crap and still running a temp. marni
  7. Just want to wish you all a nice Thanksgiving. The last month has been somewhat difficult for me. I was trying to work extra hours and I did myself in. I've been in bed with the flu the last 3 days and running a high temp (103) at one point. Prior to that I caught a bad cold and I think that just played havoc with my immune system so I got slammed with the flu. Pushing lots of fluids so that's helping somewhat. No solids for me -- can't tolerate that at this point. I had to cancel my plans to spend Thanksgiving with my parents so no turkey for me this year so you guys eat enough for me
  8. Okay, so the move went fine--I'm pretty much settled and glad that's over. Parents were a big help--I hated to see them leave. It's a strange feeling being in a new place by myself, sometimes very sad and depressing but there's not much I can do about that. I got new migraine meds--just started that--topomax--the dosage will change in a week. So time will tell if it works--I hope so. Now, about the dumb luck. I was at the grocery store a few nights ago to get some things and as I'm walking around and look down one of the aisles I see my X with some woman on his arm!!!! She looked familiar
  9. OMG! You poor thing! Haven't had the time or energy to check forum so this was my first in a few days and I was reading the posts and came across yours. How horrible for you. Are you doing any better? Didn't this home health care person use surgical gloves when she was at your home? Could you possibly have contacted the scabies somewhere else, like in a dr.'s office or, I think I remember in one of your posts you were at the ER for a bad migraine and was taken there by emergency squad? Could it have happened there? Anyway, hope you are doing better.
  10. Hope you're feeling better--take care of yourself
  11. I also, clicked on this link only to find the transcript was from 2008. Am I missing something? Or, did I do something wrong? Then, I started thinking maybe the transcript won't be available online until later in the week?
  12. Just wanted to let you all know everything went as planned on Monday. Can't believe it was over in 5 minutes. I guess dissolutions go quicker than a divorce.. 3 years over in 5 minutes--makes your head spin. Been nursing a bad migraine and just a blah feeling since then--guess all the stress just caved me in. It's a little better today so hopefully I'll be able to get thru the rest of the week. I took a vacation day Friday since I'll be moving over the weekend to my new little place. Thank God my parents will be coming down to help and, the company will do me good I think. Maybe help g
  13. Some medications you might be taking may interact with coQ10: medications for diabetes, ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, diuretics, statin drugs, anticoagulants. So, best check with your Doc before you try. Hope this helps a little.
  14. I can relate. I had in-laws who made similar comments, which in turn, made my husband think the same way. Now, my marriage is ending with the dissolution being final on monday. I had a new doctor imply I had munchausen syndrome and send me to a shrink, even tho I brought all my medical records to him. Some people just don't get it and never will. All you can do for your own piece of mind is ignore the non-believers.
