I want to reach through the internet and give you a very careful hug. I’m sorry that you’re in pain and that it’s such a mystery. I’m sure you’ve thought about it, but why not cover the sores with bandaids to keep them from sticking to your clothes?

It’s perfectly normal to feel detatched from something exciting when something bad is going on. It sucks, but don’t let your lack of excitement get you down on top of everything else. Just do what you have to do, mentally, to get through the bad stuff that you’re facing.

I’m not sure what to say except I’ll pray for you, and hope you will be healed for your wedding day and honeymoon.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this.  You have every right to be frustrated and mad at all of this!  I really hope that you’re better by your wedding!

@ellisrobertson:  Big hugs. It sucks to be sick and I agree that it is often hard for others to understand even though they are being great and caring and supportive. It is hard to deal with everything- the frustration, the confusion, the fear, the isolation etc etc. I have been fighting cancer since I was 16 (now 36) and have a dazzling array of illnesses due to complicatiosn associated with the disease and its treatments. So believe me I can understand where you are coming from.

One of the best things that I would suggest to anyone going through something like this is to find a support group that deals with either your exact illness or chronic illness in general. It is easier to unload on a like minded group, to gather support from people that know exactly what you are talking about  and that understand the pressure of not trying to be a burden. It is also a lot more meaningful/helpful when a fellow sickie tells you you are being a diva (becuse sometimes we are)- you can’t really agrue back with they don’t understand etc!

If you every want to b*tch and moan feel free to PM me.

Oh girl I’m so sorry that you have had such a rought road.  Medical issues are the worst especially when you don’t know why they are happening.  I hope that you can figure out what the issue is and have a happy wedding.

I was dealing with chronic pain during my wedding that no one seemed to know how to get rid of.  The doctors were even trying to put me on a TENS unit before even determining the cause of the pain.  I finally found a doctor that helped about 2.5 years ago after 4 years of explained pain.

Hi again. That sucks about the bandaids. I hope things are going a little better, and that you’ve been feeling well enough to want to and get to try on your dress!

So Sorry youve been going through so much 🙁

I second the above opinion to perhaps join a group? It may benefit you to be able to talk with people who really know what youre going through. And perhaps they can give you tips as well for managing all the pain… especially the emotional pain of going through all of the physical pain.

Since the OP was 2 days ago, I’m curious if you’re ok? Did they find out what it was? I hope things will clear up in time for your wedding (and in general for that matter!!)

Wishing you the best and thinking of you…
