That is what I am right now. A bundle of worry. My girl is still not feeling well. It has gone beyond the itchy allergy-like problem that she was suffering with. A week and a half ago, after two bouts of the itchies, she started feeling very worn out and was having pain and tiredness in her legs. The leg discomfort has continued and at this point she cannot walk without leg pain. It is now centered in her knees and ankles. She has a very difficult time getting up or down stairs and she has been out of school since last Tuesday. Our first visit to the doctor was last Wednesday. He said it’s probably a virus, give it a week. We went back yesterday with the more specific symptoms of knee and ankle pain. He took blood and will call me tomorrow with results. He is testing for arthritis, Lyme disease, mono and he did a cbc. He said it probably isn’t mono because other than the leg pain, she is feeling well in general.
I’m sorry if this is a boring post. I just needed to get it out. My husband is not good with things like this. I think he avoids stress by pretending that stressful things don’t exist. So…he doesn’t want to hear my worries and I end up annoyed with him because he is not understanding when I try to talk to him about these things. I sure do miss my mom at times like this. I guess no matter how old I get, I will miss my mom when the going gets tough.
