Ms and Infections

Been out of touch a while. I have a severe kidney infection. Sucks, hurts, this is a slow recovery, antibiotics slow in helping. My caregivers been out for a month and a half. Looking for a new one. Why is it so hard to find one seems like everyone I find has a series of unfortunate health problems and our gone. My house hasn't been vacuumed in a month. My dogs need baths. Out of food. Feel horrible I'd do all these things except shopping but I physically can't this kidney infection is killing me. I just hate these times that drag on so long helpless, just venting.

  • Sorry you are struggling Tanyagoeres! I hope things turn around for you soon.

  • So sad to here of all your struggles. Is there any help groups in your area our perhaps a church group.there may be some teens that would love to help with the house cleaning and with the pets and shopping. At least for a few hours a day which is better than nothing. About a zillion years ago, my baby-sitting gig turned into a sitter, house cleaner, shopper and sometimes the dinner cook. check with local churches, Etc. I hope the antibiotics kick in and you get well deserved relief. Glad you checked in with us. MSAA may be able to help.
