The past few weeks have been real hard for me.  I think you all know I have had some health problems the past year.  The main issue being that some days, I have extreme daytime sleepiness and cannot stay awake.  I have had days recently when I slept 20 out of 24 hours in a day!  Now, I also have a bad cold.

I have seen so many types of doctors (had sleep study, thyroid checked, heart checked, and more) and found all to be fine, except a slight thyroid problem, but doctor said it was not enough to make me as sleepy as I am.  Tried to call several of the doctors again last weeks, beggining them to tell me what to look at next because I cannot live my life sleeping all the time.  I have a family.  I have iVillage.  I have a part time job.  Also, it is not any of my medications, checked that first last year.

Hubby and I are considering trying to get me into the Mayo Clinic to be checked, since all the doctors cannot find anything to explain the tiredness.  When I called this past week, two doctors flat out said, "I don't know what to tell you......all your tests were normal...." 

There is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but I thought many doctors don't recognise that as a diagnoses?

My apology for being MIA, I do care about the board and will try to stay awake and be involved like I want to be!!!!!

I agree with Lorie, you are awesome, a brilliant CL.  I wish we could do something that would help you.  I hope someone can get answers for you and find ways of helping you.

We love you Heidi,

Hi Promise!

My ds and I are doing okay...

Was able to text dd and she texted me back so I know she is okay and she knows we are.

Although we do miss each other like crazy...:smileywink:...

Both of us are finding it a wee bit harder than we thought it would be...;(...it's early days though and fairly new to ALL of us.

My dd has lived on her own though for a while and I had to let her go a long time ago.

She knows though that she is LOVED and that I am very proud of her and admire her.

Now I know how my Mom felt, and she had two girls!

My dd said I have ALWAYS been encouraging and have been there for her and her brother.

he has some had some health issues but is strong and a fighter like her Mom...:smileywink:...

How are you Promise?

We had rain here today but I went out anyways.

A wee bit weepy and tired tonight...:smileysad:...

Having a mini Pity-Party!
