Thanks Genden but I feel fine.   I told my doctor it's just one of those things that people get that is harmless but yes I have scheduled the ultrasound for next Friday.  it's weird but I feel better now  then before I was my mom's CG.  I just don't have time to think about every little aches and pain that comes up and wonder what is wrong with me.  It's probably a good thing that I don't have time to analyze so I can concentrate on work and my mom.

Thanks genden69 for your words. Have had few people around me telling the same thing and somewhere my brain screams that I can't do much more but the daughter in me finds it real hard to watch my mother go through this.

Thanks Miracleseeker and very glad you are getting the Ultrasound. Do not worry ahead of time about what may happen and stress out before the tests.Wish you the very best and take care.

Thanks Pathfinder you all give me the courage to move forward  and face the music as they say because many a day I feel like am desperately swimming with no life jacket.Specially now as am about leave my Mother  for a few months and head back to the states for my husbands tests which I hope will be okay.

Thank you for sharing. I am so glad to find others out there having the same feelings and problems. I felt like I was alone until I read your post. It is really hard to deal with all of this sometimes.

Spill it sister.  What is your story?  Who are you taking care of?   Welcome!  :D   Let's hear it and I'm sure at least one of us can relate to what you are going through.

As a YOPD.... I am so scared to think of my husband and my kids becoming overwhelmed by being my caregiver. Trying now to make sure we do some things to make it easier-we will be in a one level condo within the next few years. I don't need it now but I'm doing it anyway. 

Prayers for you all on that part of the PD journey.

Smart move planning ahead.  No one knows what you will be like in a few years.  Just hope for the best and prepare for the worst.  Good luck!
