Red face Hoping for answers

Hello all, thought i would write a little.... I go to UNC on the seventh and eighth. We are going to stay overnight. This will be my fourth EMG, but first single fiber one. I finally got a part time job at a clothing store, minimum wage! I could cry, i remember the days of working going to school full time and making my way up the pay ladder only to be lucky to get minimum wage... Once again the people i work for want to work me more hours, they think they are being nice but i cant! I went from four hours a day to seven. My breathing is getting really bad, i dont know if its from the thymoma, weak respiratory muscles or both. I really need money so i dont tell the people i work for what is going on.. I just push through then pass out. I really hope i get some help and direction with this upcoming appointment, i have learned from the past not to expect anything but i really need some guidance.... Please pray with me that i will get some answers......thank you so much, Sam

Sam,

As you know , you are always in my prayers....
I know you need money and that's why you are working but please take care of yourself.
I am hoping for some good news for you and alot of us on this forum with no answers.....

Sam,
Oh you have had such a long road. I just hate what you have been through. I am sending thoughts and hugs to you, please know that we are always here for you. Keep us updated, undiagnosed is as trying sometimes as diagnosed.

Hi Sam-

You can count me in as praying for you. The road has been long already with ups and downs and in betweens. I am in the same boat with needing money- just re-applied for disability and prayed over the envelope before I mailed it. Hang in there and remember to reach out for support when you need it.

Love,
Cindy
