    update about Tonya

    Well we thought we sold the house. Wrong. Got an offer that was acceptable. Had our eye on a place we liked. My husband talked to the potential buyers banker. These people have no $ in the bank. No way of getting money for down payment. And could not afford the monthly mortgage on my house. They should not have even looked at my house. they should have never made an offer. I am so mad at our realtor. IDIOTS. Have developed a problem with my stump. CYSTS. From my research on the computer, this is a problem that can develop. Told my doctor and she but me on antobiotics. I am draining the cysts with a syringe, applying antibiotic ointment and taking my medicine. Won a battle with my insurance. Said they will Finally reprocess all of my medical bills, doing it right this time. I guess it helped when I got the ferederal and state insurance commission involved. So I sent a letter to all of the medical providers who are hounding me for payment. I told them you guys are not getting any more of my money until this is resolved. The disability people still have not ruled on my case. So I wrote a letter to my congressman and his office is now speaking with the disability people on my behalf. Maybe it will light a fire under there feet so they start moving on this. It will be a year in August. I just want to know if a qualify or not. If I do not I dont know what we will do. I was hoping things would be looking a little brighter by now. It is not completely black but it is grey. I also have poison ivy. My husband brought it home on his clothes and I got it when I put them in the wash. I am very sensitive to poison ivy. ITCH. Just having a wonderful summer. Tonya

    For Lilli

    When I joined this forum, Lili words made me laugh, think, and cry. I will miss her. Hopefully she is at peace now. She deserves peace and happiness after everything she went through. Tonya

    Dreams

    After my amp I would dream of my life before. Last week was the first dream I could remember having that I only had one leg. did not like it. Felt depressed for about a day or two. I had hoped that in my dreams at least I could still be normal. That has been even taken away now. Feeling frustrated lately. Nothing seems to be going right yet. Still trying. Tonya

    Pin verses sleeve/suction?

    My first leg was a pin system. I hated it. I have a passive suction system now. It is alot better for me. Easier on and off. Feels more natural. Just my opinion. Tonya

    Frustrated

    Hi, My scar was completely healed then doing leg lifts with an ill fitted leg, I blew my incision open. this worked for me. Check with your doctor before you use it. ADAPTIC. it is an open weave gauze that was a something on it. It protects against damage, lets air in and keeps the area moist. It was the only thing that got my incision to heal. It still took some time. Check with your doctor before you use it. Tonya
  10. MJ, I know my major vent session caused a major change in me. It was after that, that I got my spunk back. Go Girl ggggggggggggggoooooooooooooooooooooo I hid for awile also, Now I dont care about the looks. I survived something that most people could never face. Now it is time to thrive. Good luck in school. Pursue it . Get a class list, tour the campus, meet the prof. Do not let this go. Have a goal and attain it. Then another Goal. YOU WILL WALK. YOU WILL GET AN ART DEGREE.

    O.K. need help to sell my house

    The kitchen and my bedroom are done. Starting on the bathroom. When I wallpapered it years ago I was not good at wallpapering and did a bad job, so I am ripping it down. No serious offers yet. Alot of people just nibbing. They knew what the house looked like when we bought it and they want to see what we did to it. Keep your fingers crossed. We need to sell it soon. It has been raining for about 2 week straight. Stuck in the house. another question - with kids and a dog our yard has bear spots. How do I grow grass( the kind you mow not smoke)? Tried grass seed sprinkled on the gound- birds eat it. Help. Tonya

    Mom had her surgery

    My amp was 9/17/03. So I have not even had my ! year anniversary yet. Mom wanted me to go home with her after the surgery. I did. I help her in the house, got her ready and put her in bed, got her some food and sat and talked about what she could expect. This is what I would have done before my illness. There is alot of things that we have not discussed. My parents believe if you ignore it, it will go away. To confront them about anything would not be good. They do not know how to deal with things. They like to keep secrets. Tonya

    Mom had her surgery

    My mother had her breast surgery yesterday. Initial pathology test say it in NOT cancer. finally some good news for a change. She is really bruised and sore. Took her forever to wake up. Went home and helped her get settled before I left. hopefully they realize I am the same person, just a slightly different outside package. Find out from a relative that came to the hospital that Mom told them not to call me or visit me. She still has not accepted what happened to me and just wants to hide me away. But I now refuse to hide. I am who I am now. I am a true survivor. People will just have to accept me for who I am. I also found out that my husband yelled at my parents. They can to visit and siad you are ok nothing is wrong with you , you dont need medicine. Well my husband told them to open there eyes and yelled at them about a few other things. Any suggestions about dealing with parents who just do not want to accept or understand. Tonya
