    Jerrie ~

    Hope things will get better for you. Will keep you in prayer that Dr. can find out what is going on. I know it's hard to do - but don't worry about the things you need to get done. Just take one thing at a time and it will all get done in time.

    Take care Jerrie. I know when I start feeling overwhelmed, I just do one thing and concentrate on it. Go fold the clothes and then that will be done. You can only do one thing at a time, even though our heads swirl around a million things! I hope you're feeling better soon.

    Jerrie, prayers are being sent your way....with love. It's so hard to wait and wonder -- especially when you have so much on your plate to begin with. Take a deep breath and relax. It'll all work out.

    Some of those drugs can have hard withdrawal effects. Take good care of yourself.

    Just take a deep breath.. relax and think about one project that you will get done. Don't look at the whole picture just focus on one thing , as the others have said when looking at the whole picture it can be very overwhelming, especially when you don't feel well to begin with. Take care

    You will definitely be in my prayers! Take it slow. Sometimes just sitting and being still helps to calm the inter self. Maybe some relaxing music.

    Prayers for you Jerrie, just take it a minute at a time. Give up controlling everything and give yourself permission to feel bad. Then get some fabric out that you don't like particularly and make it into something beautiful. It will give you the best feeling to get back to some sort of order.

    My prescription for your day and I won't charge you nearly as much as the doctors do!! :lol: :lol:

    Sorry you're feeling so stressed out. Sometimes life gangs up on us. Just take one thing at a time. When I get feeling stressed like this, I pick a project and try to FINISH it, even if it's just folding my laundry. It helps to get back some feeling of control, no matter how small the project. And the rest of the stuff you have to do will still be ther waiting for you when you're ready to tackle it.

    Jerrie, I love to fold clothes - if you were closer, I'd come over to help! Take it easy and do one thing at a time and then all will be done soon. I must admit, I am not familiar with the medical terms you are using. - What is D-Dimer?

    Jerrie It is so frustrating when you get no answers from the doctors! Been there with my husband. They could tell us what it wasn't but not what it was. This was several years ago and we still have issues with his health.

    Just hang in there it will get better. When you're down you can only go up!

    Talking it out is the best thing you can do so please come and vent whenever you need to!!

    Keeping you in my prayers! Just take a deep breath and let the Lord help you and keep you in his hands!

    Making a list really helps me when I am overwhelmed. I LOVE to cross things off the list, gives me a sense of accomplishment and motivates me to keep going.
    hang in there and take it one thing at a time.

    I want to thank you all for your advice i know it is just that simple but it is getting to that stage D-Dimer is something about the cells and it let you know you have a blood clot somewhere. This is what the nurse prationer told me so i am going to google it and see anyway they can not find the clot.

    Dear girl, keep us posted. You have many angels watching over you. You just have to let them know what's happening.

    Jerrie...you just take it easy. Not fun waiting for all the docs to figure out what is going on.
    Like Sharon said, get some fabric and make something cute.
    Big hugs to you girl!
