    Thanks Grace,

    I'm pretty excited about the next phase!! It will help me heal from everything and help me move forward. But in saying that i'm a little scared as to if the psych will be my fit. 

    Well hoping for the best! 

    Its been a great positive weekend!!

    Cheers,

    Hi Zetta!

    It's great that you've made the steps to get some help! I hope the psychologist will be a good fit for you, but keep in mind that if they're not, it's perfectly okay to stop seeing them and find someone else. Good Luck x

    Thanks Paul!

    You guys have helped a lot with my positive attitude!! I haven't felt this positive in a long while!! And I must say that just being able to talk to people who understand makes a huge difference to it all!! I'm starting to make my way through the other posts and see where I can contribute and relate to some other people. I'll definately go to the BB Cafe when I have time and post there. 

    Cheers,

    Zetta

    Hi Zetta,

    Just checking on you to see how you're going.

    Catching up with the last few posts reassures me that things are beginning to look up. I guess they have little choice in the face of your positive attitude. I'm confident that they will keep improving. Great to know your husband is waking up to your emotional needs. No matter how brave you are, going it alone is tough.

    Best wishes for your next appointments. I hope you have a peaceful day.

    Hi Grace,

    I think I might have endometriosis, My Gynecologist has  scheduled a Laparoscopy to diagnose it in May. I'm going to my GP today to get stronger pain medication. Panadeine forte and Ponstan isn't working anymore :'( I woke up a little sore today and because I'm ovulating it's playing up more. Hoping to get something sorted today.

    Feeling Hopeful,

    Zetta

    Hi Zetta

    Just checking in and seeing how you are. I have no idea of what chronic pain feels like.My friend Pixi has chronic pain and is in a bad way (after post gall bladder surgery adhesions occuring) You are not on your own here. The regular heavy duty pain meds dont work anymore and she has been prescribed the next stronger one.

    She has some depression and anxiety nowadays but is in good hands with a great team of doctors. I know you will find some well deserved peace soon Zetta

    Kind Thoughts for You

    Its been a very busy weekend with two of my three boys playing in a soccer carnival on the weekend!! I'm feeling really tired and sore tonight due to the busy weekend! But i'm in bed now and ready for a good nights sleep. 

    Thanks for checking in Grace! 

    Sleep tight,

    Hi Grace,

    The soccer carnival was great!! Both my boys enjoyed playing all their games!! The last few days were pretty painful but I'm taking it easy and resting when I can as the pain meds are making me a bit drowsy. Luckily we're going camping this weekend and I will get some good quality relaxation this weekend.

    Happy Easter weekend to you guys!!

    Hi Zetta,

    Sorry to hear about the pain :-(

    Camping sounds wonderful. I love Easter with the kids. I hope you have a lovely time. Seeing kids so happy always makes me feel better.

    Hi Carol! 

    Yes seeing the kids happy is definitely a mood lifter!! I just can't wait to get away from all the technology and just unwind and get some well deserved rest. Luckily I got some stick on heat packs that heats up with your body temperature and lasts for 12 hours plus. So if i'm in any pain I can use them. 

    Have a safe and happy Easter!!
