My hair and my stress

2013-07-22

Craziness lately. My mother is in the hospital with end stage liver disease. It's my intention to donate a part of my liver to save her life. I'm not worried about the surgery, or the long recovery time, or the huge scar I will have. But it seems like the entire universe is against me. It will be a fairly long trip to her hospital in CT, especially with my 1 year old in the back seat. Since my husband has to work ill need to get a rental car. I can't get a rental car until I pay an outstanding ticket I got a while back. I called the court to pay the fine and guess what?! The woman won't be there until tomorrow. Yet another day I have to wait. Then I will just have to hope that the payment goes through so that I can get my rental car the next day. The stress of it all makes me want to pull my hair out!!! Aaaaaah, my hair. It's been 4...5? days since I got rid of my brush and went full neglect. It's messy, and wild, and I love it. It's beautiful chaos amongst the ugly chaos of my life. I love that it is one less thing that I have to worry about. I'm so thankful for this site introducing me to this all natural way. It really is my peace of mind and I'm grateful that it showed up when it did. <3

I'm sorry you have to go through this - I lost both of my parents to drawn-out illness and can identify in my own way. Knowing doesn't make it much easier, but it does help us get a little closure and enjoy the time we have left.Hoping you all get to have some happy moments and that she has an easier journey from here on out <3Hang in there and don't forget to keep your own self well.

I am sad to report that although I did make it to CT, I was faced with upsetting news when I got here. My mom got sick all of a sudden and put in the ICU. She is slowly getting a little better, but we found out that her heart is damaged and so she in ineligible for a liver transplant. :-( I want to cry. No way to save her now, just keep her alive as long as possible. Thank you guys for the support.

What a great person you are doing the liver transplant. I takes a very special person indeed. My husband donated a kidney to his brother, so I know it is not an easy recovery for any surgery. All the best to your mother and I hope this works for her, hope you can donate.

Do you feel better now after your rant?....hope so....rant anytime.....Chaos does bring happiness...peace
