sorry to be a debbie downer but i need to vent. for the last 6 years i have been having really bad leg and hip pain. it started when i had ali. through out my pregnancies it was hard on my body. after i had jill i thought it was doing better (5.5 years after it started!). then out of no where the last few weeks it is back and it is unbearable. i saw my dr they did blood work and and u/s. everything came back normal but one level was slightly elevated that showed inflimation. it was 23 the normal level is 20 but its not considered high unless its 30 or higher. so i call my dr back and said i wanted an mri and they are sending me to a neuro. im glad they are doing something but my appointment is not till march 5th! i am in so much pain! my body feels like it is giving out on me. nothing helps the pain at all. sometimes my joints give out on me and it is so painful. sorry just needed to vent a little. also i have been super bummed lately cause one of my co-workers who was my age died. they just got the autopsy results and he had a heart attack! he was 26! this has been really bothering me. i feel super depressed and like life is so short and i am spending it working 6 days a week at a job i HATE! i want to be a SAHM and i am so jealous of all you mommies who get to stay at home. i wish there was a way we could work it out but right now it is just not possible at all. i want to be home with my girls and get ali ready in the morning and spend the day with jill. i feel like why am i spending my time doing something i really hate? sorry this is so long. i just really needed to get that off of my chest!
Aw babe I am so sorry this is still plaguing you. I kind of hope the MRI shows something you can start a course of treatment. Vent away!!! I work from home and even I'm jealous of SAHMs, too! I wish I could just spend 100% of my day focusing on Pax.
i just love being home with jill so much. i love getting ali ready and making her a healthy good breakfast. i just want to be home. i never see tim and it sucks. when i have a day off i get to see him for a few hrs. im just super bummed. it doesnt help how bummed i feel when i am in constant pain and nothing helps. i just hope i can get answers. maybe then i can get out of this funk!
I am so sorry that you are having a rough time! That is very young for a heart attack, and very sad
Is going to the ER an option? Maybe they can do an MRI, although it wouldn't be guaranteed that that is the route they would go, so might be a waste of time. That sucks that it is so far away I hope you get answers from that!
I feel you on the SAHM, some days I want to be home, although I am lucky now that I like my job, I remember the days when I dreaded going to work and I didn't have kids at the time. I hope you have a better week this coming week!
Im sorry you are having to deal with this and I hope that your MRI shows the reason its happening and you can begin a treatment and start to feel better. I too felt the same way about wanting to be a SAHM when STone was born (6 years ago) I was still working after Mason. It wasnt until the boys were 4 & 2 that I got to stay home with them. I was going to go back to work when Mason started school but ofcourse Miss Raini decided to join us, so here I am back at home, I wouldnt trade it for the world though. I hope that one day soon you can experience such a blessing.
