Drum, I don't have a lot of time to respond. I am at work, but I do understand where you're coming from. I am your age and in a lot of ways we are the same! I do give BIG HUGS and more HUGS. I know it can be so tough, and I at times let it eat me up too. I know you're strong and you can pull through this! Have you ever thought of checking out local barns or rescues in the area? Maybe you can see / ride the horses and get a dose to help you! It will not be the same as your horses, nothing can really ever compare in my opinion but it might make you feel better! Just that horsey smell, being around them and getting back in the saddle and taking your mind off everything else. YOU come first, so do what makes you feel better and what you feel is right. I think horses are your next best medicine besides your actual medicine. (: I wish I had time to write more, but feel free to message me anytime!

**Sorry didn't see someone else suggest the horse therapy, again very busy here at work but reallllyy wanted to respond. But I really do think that would help. I also know you're taking a TON of medicine right now, I know how that goes too! I would give time for the new medicine to work and if you feel it's too much or not working just talk to your doctor and see what options you have. (:

I think it's time to go back home and hang with your horses. That in itself can be healing. You don't need to hold everyone else up, let them do it, you need to look after yourself.

Thanks.. Every thing just seems to be piling on top of each other..

I'm just sitting and trying to eat now, definitely going to go to the store tomorrow and get stuff for the shakes, and try to find a few things that would be better for me to eat than just the snacking I am doing now.

I'm thinking of going home for a few days this upcoming week and I'll probably just ride a lot and think about this whole deal..I may end up making up my mind to just stay home and work on myself there. Who knows..

DrumRunner - I sure do hope you're feeling better. I know comfort food doesn't cure anything but it sure helps the moment. Do you like ice cream? Why don't you treat yourself to a big bowl of it tonight before going to bed.
Tomorrow's another day and you need to do what's best for you - even if that means going back home to take care of yourself! You probably already know what everyone is telling you here - you just need to act on it. If I could, I'd send you a whole bunch of the extra pounds that I have - health issues sometimes do the opposite for people. It is what it is and just like weather, there are some things we can't change. We just need to learn how to deal with them. My mom used to tell me to "count my blessings" - I didn't then but I sure do now! I wish you the best of luck!

Life is short - enjoy the trail!

I agree.. I definitely count my blessings.. I may be in a not so great situation now but I have a lot to be thankful for.. Ice cream would be fantastic but I don't think we have any! That will have to go on my list of things I need to get tomorrow at the store..Thank you for words.. I appreciate all of them!

Hey, Drumrunner. A little insomnia here, and just saw and read your thread. I want you to know I'm praying for you and sending hugs. I'll be one of those Mama bears here on the forum, ok?

I know about the bottom falling out. By grace, I'm still kicking.

I pray you get to go home, ride your horses, and take some deep breaths next week. I pray that you find answers for healing up your body. Praying for your sister, too.

I'm so sorry love <3 many hugs and prayers sent your way.

I had a big old story typed out and HF ate it, so I'm going to be short now and suggest that you take Lockwoods suggestion to try getting a perscription for those juices. Each one has the equivalent of one meal in it, although you shouldnt JUST drink one. Try drinking two or so a day, as well as your normal meals and a granola bar or two. Another thing to try is Boost shakes, which can be bought with extra calcium or vitamin D in them. I drank both of these when I dropped down to 75 pounds due to my gallbladder failing and rerouting all of the bile that was supposed to be in my intestines up into my stomach and throat- eating at the tissues there. They taste good and are good for you. Lots of fruits and nuts are a good idea as well. The nice thing about fruits is that they feel light but if you eat them right and pick good ones, they're good for you and can give you a lot of energy.

Hang in there, and I really do think that you sound like you need some you time, so this trip will be good for you. One person cannot carry the burdens of a multitude, after all. <3 I'll be thinking of you!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Hello DrumRunner - How are ya feeling today? Happy to see you are going home at least for a short time. I think that will be good for you. I'd like your real first name so I can put you on our prayer list at church. I figure when prayers are needed, we can use all the help we can get!! If you don't want to give it out, that's ok. Don't forget about the ice cream treat! There is also something to be said about comfort food too!!
Have a great time with your Dad! Bye...


Life is short - enjoy the trail!

Oh Amber!

I'm so so so sorry for everything that your going through. Please PM me or email me ( anytime that you need to!!!

Have you ever tried yoga or some type of relaxation therapy?

You know what you need? Dim lights, lots of lavender candles, a sexy hot guy, a massage table and relaxing oils. It fixes EVERYTHING.
