@GreenEyedMoon:  **HUGS** You are allowed to whine and scream and cry, anyone would be having to go through what you have gone through. I don’t have any cute animal gifs right now, but I’m sure help in on the way!

I just want to offer you my support. I had a really, really bad year last year and there were days that I was so completely overwhelmed with everything that I had to take things minute by minute. I had to tell myelf constantly that I was okay right that minute. I can’t imagine the pain that you must be feeling with your medical condition and how hard it must be to have your strongest supporter so far away from you. I get horrible migraines and I’m the biggest baby ever. You poor thing! I just know that for me, the bad times make me appreciate the good that much more. I hope everything gets better for you SOON so that you can look back on this and realize how STRONG you are for surviving it all!!!

VENT AWAY… it is good for the soul

(( HUGS )) to you

Ya sometimes life sucks cause “the bad times” can come in waves

Or 3s if you are superstitious

We have a saying in my family… don’t hate too loud on an inanimate object in your home when it breaks down (or dies) cause inevitably “the fridge” (freezer, stove, dishwasher, washer, dryer, microwave etc) will hear and decide they are p!ssed at your attitude and side with “their buddy” and either go on strike or commit suicide (die) too.

Shhhh  Do not talk badly of the “dead” appliances in your home !!

I can’t fix anything on your list except for # 8

I can tell you exactly how to remedy that one

Turn the Blah, blah, blah, whine, whine, whine

Into… Rah, Rah, Rah… Wine, Wine, Wine

Wink *wink*

Sometimes things look a bit better when you have your “Rosé Glasses” on

Hang in there kiddo… as they say “this too shall pass”

MORE (( HUGS ))

A famous saying is “when it rains it pours”. I’m sorry soo much is happening ESPECIALLY all at once. The best thing is to b strong and lean on ur SO when it becomes too much. Even an outlet like meditation might help you mentally. youll make it past the hard times *hugs*

@GreenEyedMoon:  IT GETS BETTER!  Sorry you’re going through so much right now – when it rains it pours. But, sending lots of support your way.  I’m not sure if I shared this link with you or another bee with EDS before, but you might want to check it out for support and inspiration. (I’m PMing it to you now.)

*Hugs* So sorry you’re dealing with this right now. I’ve watched one of my closest friends deal with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Gastroperesis (she can no longer eat solid food), Dysautonomia, and a host of unknown medical conditions she’s battled for years. She’s on disability, already knows she cannot carry children, before 30 had both hips replaced and has just been told she needs knee replacement. She’s struggled and fought to stay alive and I have seen how hard that is so I can imagine what you’re going through right now and how difficult it is especially if you don’t have your space for release which for you is art. For my friend it is her horses.

Even though it seems trivial I would find some sort of way for you to do your art. That sort of release seems most helpful. Just something calming to take your mind off of everything else that seems like chaos in your life right now. Have you thought about looking for somewhere you could use a ceramics studio? Like a community center or college? Some places might have inexpensive classes or workshops just to give you a place to go and work on something.

You’re dealing with a lot and it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and want to vent, cry, etc..

First off, here is a you tube video of a gorilla (well, it’s some primate) swiping a banana.  My family thinks it is ridiculous how funny I think this is.  Is it extremely funny after a glass or two of wine!  You know, for that rah, rah, rah, wine, wine, wine…

I am so sorry things are so dark for you right now.  I would like to encourage you to consider doing some counseling if you can.  You have so much on your plate and it can be so hard to break that all down and learn how to manage it on your own.

Can you look into a pain management clinic of some type?  I’m not sure if that is feasible when your diagnosis isn’t firm yet, but it may be something to consider.

I just retired after being in the military for 26 years.  I do understand how much you will miss your husband as he travels for his new job.  There was a commercial maybe a year or so ago (for skype, maybe?) where the couple is talking to each other, brushing their teeth together, saying goodnight to each other and laying down on their pillows.  You couldn’t tell until the end that they were doing it all on skype, when they showed the computers.

Do you guys have a couple of friends who could help DH get the pottery spot finished inthe garage?  If you could do your pottery when he is gone, it sounds like that might be quite therapeutic for you and help  you pass time when he is gone.

I’m very sorry about your house.  Will your homeowner’s insurance cover the damage?

Please know that I wish you well and do pray that things will begin to fall into place for you.  God bless.

@HisMoon:  I love that boxer. My little guy is a snuggle bug too!

@GreenEyedMoon:  I am sorry you are dealing with so much. Last year was my year from hell. I can consciously remember saying to my husband, “well, at least it can’t get worse.” And then it did. Over and over again, it kept getting worse. It will pass, even if it doesn’t feel like it now. As hard as it is, focus on the good in your life and enjoy that rather than dwelling on the bad.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this!  From your posts on the Bee you seem like a very strong person with a good head on her shoulders though, and I know you can make it through these tough times!  Here’s a link to lots of cute otter pictures: http://dailyotter.org/
