    I feel alone and unloved!

    I have begged for my husband to be here for me and he has better things to do! My mom took me to the emergency room yesterday for chest pains that were terrible. Told me it wasn't my heart but maybe my sarcoidosis!

    Usually, when people call someone 'stupid', it's because they don't agree with what they have to say. Just because a person disagrees with you, doesn't mean they are stupid.
