    Hi Rose

    I'm sorry to hear Zachary had such a scary episode but that's really great news you got a diagnosis! That's big step. Now you know what you're dealing with and can get proper treatment which will make a huge difference.

    Best wishes to you both...I hope he improves quickly. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    My heart goes out to you both Rose. Maybe now things will even out. It's hard to understand why these things happen, but every thread of the weave of life has a purpose and a meaning although sometimes it's so hard! I keep you and Zach in my thoughts. Much love to you both!

    Sorry to hear about his illness.
    but thats great he received a diagnosis before serious damage was done.i can relate, I'm 23 and i have constant hear pain, chest,kidney aching pains. i don't have medical insurance so i cant get a proper diagnosis i have been to the ER room several times in recent months an years, they do an EKG an chest x ray and send me home,i cant afford the further testing , i have a past history of nonspecific pericarditis (pericarditis caused by an unknown problem)
    it's often times very scary to be ill but the worst thing is not to have a diagnosis many people hide from the fact there ill in fear of what is wrong with them. but a diagnosis is GREAT and with out it damage goes unfixed and thats horrible. wonderful he was diagnosed an being treated. my best wishes an prayers to him

    Hi Rose,
    I think the worse part is over now. Now that you know what the problem is, you can face it instead of worring what will happen next. I wish you both the best of luck.
    Just because we haven't spoke in a while don't mean I haven't been thinking about how you and Zack were doing. Remember, the offer still stands if you need somebody to talk to.

    Copper,
    My mom has hypothyroidism (sort of the opposite problem as Zach) and we thought that perhaps she was getting Alzheimer's since it crept in over a period of years. She's deathly afraid of doctors and wouldn't go. If we tried to make her she'd start screaming and kicking. It got to the point where she couldn't tell the difference between day and night, and she didn't recognize me at all. She thought I was my cousin, who looks and acts nothing like me. Finally, we got her to the hospital by saying we were going to Disneyland. And while we sat in the waiting room, we told her we were in line for Pirates of the Caribbean. It sure is funny now that she has the medication she needs, but it wasn't at the time.

    Zach will get better, hopefully in time things will be fairly "normal" and you can forget this terrible period. Knowing is half the battle! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Keep a positive outlook, and give him lots of hugs.
    A flytrap ate my homework!

    Hey Rose,
    I'm very glad you have finally gotten a proper diagnosis. I hope all the best for Zach. It's a good thing he has such a tough attitude! That'll get him through the bad times so he can enjoy the good times.
