  1. others have sworn by the antibiotics in the minocycline family after trying for months/years every other thing for the rash.

    (oh, spicy pepperoni, I just remembered that you are going to be going to Mexico soon... if you do get on the antibiotics, check with the dermatologist about sunshine ... I think it is contraindicated big time)

  2. I take Lexapro. It is the best working drug that I have ever had to control anxiety that comes with diagnosis and helps keep your thinking a wee more straightened out. (not so much ruminating)

    It doesn't make you happy. It just staves off depression.





    Niececola mentioned physiatrist....that is a doctor that is in charge of physical medicine...rehabiltative medicine...neurology/muscles/bones etc...?

    A psychiatrist...that is a doctor who deals with mental or mind issues, right?

    Two different specialties, but a physiatrist has had more training than the average GP in dealing also with depression since that comes with major loss of functions.

    Just don't know exactly what Denise meant by physiatrist. I have used physiatrists to help with my recovery for physical therapy, occupational therapy, spine therapy for after my car accident and then

    after I was diagnosed with lc. They are a wonderful asset and not very well known in this country by the general pop. about this specialty.


    Love Lexapro. That and a hit of ativan every now and then is a wonderful thing.

  3. Frank worked hard to keep all of us laughing and in good spirits because he cared.

    Next opportunity I get to have a chocolate donut and next opportunity for a budlite will both be in honor of Frank. Don't know if I am as brave as he was to do them both at the same time though.... :roll:

    Very sad that there will be no more jokes and words of encouragement from Frank.

    Blessings to all his family and friends.

    I will miss his essence.

  4. Thanks, Pattie, You are a good sister to Frank and good to us to help us keep on on our very own one and only FRANK LAMB.

    He is such a good buddy to all of us.

    Glad your pain is under control, Frank. You have my thoughts and prayers for every second of every minute to be valuable and sweet.

    lovingly and fondly,

  5. Take your time, Katie.

    You are right about the denial. It can be a wonderful gift. You will deal with all of this in bits and pieces as you are able and not a smidge too much or too soon. (though it may feel like it)

    We are thinking of you.

  6. dear Tracey.

    You put on paper the thoughts I have had regarding my own illness and my own survival fears. It is difficult to remain/stay forever positive and hopeful. There are days when no matter what I can't seem to shake the demons either. They creep in and give me the "what fors"... (dang buggers!!) I hate it when I get those bluezee feelings too and no matter what they won't go away even with a good shout at them. I can only hope for another day, another day even sometimes and know that once again there will be sunshine because for some reason it does always reappear (just not when I command it, darnit)..

    Anyway. I do so appreciate you putting on paper the thoughts I have also. I am just not so good at voicing them as you, though. I appreciate your vulnerability and assure you that you are not alone with those days of fears and questions. It comes with our territory.

    Bless you, Tracey, You, and your family.

  7. Sharon,

    I had the taxotere. Something did work for me. Could it have been the taxotere? (why not??) Many get bone pain and general malaise with it. I lost a toenail on it.

    Have fun on your trip. Glad you are planned for success.

  8. Head scratcher is a down to earth way of saying what my uppitty doctors call being "perplexed". In any event, sounds better than "I don't know..."

    Don, you will get through this one too. I wish I had the words to make you feel all better, but they are not coming to me. I have something to make you laugh, but I don't think that's what you need right now.

    Don't have any advice either, dangit.

    Think of you often, Don. Just can't believe that this continues on for you one hurdle after another. Hope they can get a nip of the creature and find out what in the world they (you) are up against this time.

    In the meantime, You Know WE are all pulling very hard for you.

  9. Hi honeys...

    blasted computer... giving me the what for!

    It konks out when it wants and I have a dickens of a time getting it up and running again. Blisters and callouses on my fingers from trying so hard.

    I should have posted that I was having troubles, but it seems it has been ongoing.. now to check pm's.

    Two rounds "on the house" for my negligence, okay?
