having a rough time and now kidney infection, UGGH

Posted by happyflower on November 15, 2007, at 19:58:18

I woke up this morning with a kidney infection that hurt so bad I almost passed out. Plus it is also making me disoriented.
I had a UTI last Fri., but the antibodics weren't working well enough, so it came back even stronger. They at least did a culture, so if the new meds don't work, at least they will know what strain it was. It must be because I am not taking care of myself like I should lately and haven't been getting enough fluids.

The viewing it tomorrow, I am going to try to get through it. It is a difficult situation anyways, but with my husband exwife and her family, it makes it even tougher. I didn't know they made caskets only 18 inches long. This is going to be so hard, I feel like I am hanging by a thread lately, and now I am sick on top of it. I think I have paid my dues for bad luck in life, I can't take anymore. I wish these meds would kick in, I hurt so much. :(

Tonight I had to find my son clothes for the funeral, he outgrew everything from the last funeral of my FIL on Jan. My babies are growing up my daughter will be a teenager in a couple of months, I can't belive it.

The only thing I am really looking forward to is our vacation in 30 days. We are going to Walt Disney World and Universal. Our family NEEDS this trip, we need some happiness for awhile.
I am reading all your very supporting emails, I am sorry I haven't responded. I look just terrible right now, very pale and very dark circles under my eyes. When I dropped off my paper at school, one of the other prof. I know, asked me if I was up all night, that is how bad I look. ugggh! Thanks for reading.

Hi happyflower. We don't talk much but I wanted to say please do take care of yourself. Body and head and feelings all work much better when give yourself what you need (maybe space and rest?) Also, if you need to cry, let it cry. It really does help a lot.

Sorry things have been real rough lately. Hope they turn around for you soon.

I'm so sorry things are soooo rough lately. You are one strong woman though.

But with life the way it is, it is so hard to build up any reserve isn't it?

I'm really happy you have your disneyland trip coming up - that really does sound like fun!

Seldom.

Happyflower, I'm just so sorry that you and your family have to go through this. I've been through it with my SIL and I know how heart wrenching such a funeral can be. Please try to take care of yourself, too, and your own children.
Good luck, and hold tight to your own kids.
antigua

Happyflower, from looking through the posts I know what you have been going through and am sorry you are hurting. It is no wonder you have circles under your eyes and are worn out..to get sick on top of everything else has to be so hard to take. I wish I had something wise and wonderful to say but we know there are never any clear answers when terrible things happen.. Hang in there.. It will take time, (but you know that)
