    I'm broken...

    ...and digging for sympathy. is that ok?

    let me tell you the newest of my drama.

    1. my precious dog is dying (you knew this)

    2. i've got inner ear problems in my right ear. my ears won't stop popping. and often they pop in such a way that it's as if air is swishing from my throat to my ear and my voice sounds like it's coming from the middle of my head and makes me feel as if i talk funny... so i won't talk at all. the only way i can stop it from popping is to basically lower my head and put it between my knees. i can't really do anything that exerts any sort of effort (walk briskly, lift weights, exercise) unless i want to keep them permanently popped for the duration and for a period of time afterwards.

    3. and here's the latest and worst - about 5 days ago, my lip started twitching...like a tiny little spasm every now and again. Well, it's gotten worse. now the whole left side of my face from my chin to above my left eyebrow is in a constant state of spasm. nice, huh? i just got back from the doctor and turns out he believes it's bell's palsy... (i have a doc's appt with a neurologist in the morning to confirm) ...which is good and bad. good that it's not permanent. bad because as long as my dog is at death's door, i'm going to remain stressed. the spasming kept me up all night last night and and now it's been spasming for such an extended period that my face feels like it's falling asleep on the left. kind of like it's coming out of the numbness you feel after going to the dentist and having a cavity filled.

    damn, man. i'm tired. i just want all of it to stop. i am totally depressed. no sleep and depression and jiggy face and whooshy ear and dying dog = a very unhappy sherri.

    granted, the good doc did give me a supply of xanax.

    okay, i'm SO going to be better now that i've had an opportunity to rant about it. xanax popped! WHINING OVER!

    Jeez Sher!
    It is good to know you can see the good. ie: it's temporary
    Still, what a few days you've had!
    Big Hugs to Sher.
    Sit back, relax, take a good loooooonnnngggg look at your Av and destress yourself for a bit

    One onf my brother- in-laws had Bell's palsy Sid.


    He felt awful at the time but it only lasted about a week.
    Hopefully yours will go just as quickly.

    Not a happy time for you.

    Sher, it all hits at once, eh? I'm sorry to hear about all the new stuff...At least everything is headed for a resolution, but of course not a happy one for your furry friend. Wow, did that sound insensitive or what?

    What I mean is, it'll all get better. Guaranteed. And while it's bad, we're here for you to rant to as much as you want.

    I am new here, but I would like to say that I am sorry for your troubles. Especially the dog. Losing a pet can be just as devistating as losing a child. My daughter had bells palsy several years ago and it went away within two weeks without any complications. It is actually an inflammation of a nerve in the face/neck. The ear problems I don't know. But I hope you went to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist just to be on the safe side. I hope things get better for you. And real soon!

    Wow, that is awful! Here's a hug for you, just in case that helps.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Sher, I'm so sorry to hear that. Being sick always makes one depressed, as if it wasn't enough with your poor dog dying too.
    Best wishes & hope you get well soon.

    Aw Sher, I'm so sorry. As if your dog dying isn't hard enough.

    It's okay, vent away. We're all here for you.

    Hang in there kiddo.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.
