Hello all LTS!!!
« on: May 10, 2012, 05:45:47 PM »
Hi all....

Just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing.  Don't recognize a lot of the names anymore, but do still see a lot of old friends still here ;D

I found the new Memorial Thread, and saw too many names I recognized.  It's a huge reality check.

With all that's going on in the world right now, I've been thinking more and more about what is ahead.  I'm already finding my Medical Care already being cut back (Medicare/Medical) and it's a really scary prospect when they are finding more 'pre-cancerous' lesions.  Now they are watching me for diabetes (test show pre-diabetic with glucose intolerance), I've got neropathy now, the radiation to my lower organs has done more damage then they imagined (two more intestinal obstruction hospitalizations), they damaged my bladder along with the severe intestine frying... majorily anemic and now 30 lbs overweight and too tired to get off my butt and exercise.  Viscous circle!!

Had to file a legal separation from my husband so we could afford my meds and medical costs.  He's on diability now too, so things are really tight.  He's negative, but has severe neropathy and arthritis.

But other than that, everything is great  ;D

Hope all is well.  Keep up the good fight!

 Hi Nancy ,
               Glad you are still around  :)

    Sounds like you are having a rough time of it , Hope it gets better

     soon  for you guys .

     Here in Missouri they just jump to dump people out of Ryan White program .

     I talked to a few guys in Saint Louis and they said most benefits
      are way down .

     I can relate to the 30 pounds  :-[

      I try to do more .   Now I have stopped drinking beer  :'(

      That should help .   

       I have a glass of carrot juice , Very yummy ...... ::)

                                                 Be  well ,   Carl

Hello Nancy,

You are just a superwoman by the mere fact that you are living to type the tale!

Hang in there.

Best to you and your husband.

Take care.

Hey Nancy,

Good to see you.

Sorry you have been running the health treadmill, so to speak. There are times when it sucks.

Try to stick around and keep us posted on how things are going.

HUGS,

Mark
