Today I am hurting again. It really is hurting. Sometimes I feel as if my whole world is falling apart. I don't want to go on. But that is life and I have to keep moving on.  No matter how much I hurt.

Today is bad. I have to go to doctor;s. My legs have started again and the doctor's don't know why. I do everything they tell me to do. I love exercise and do it everyday. I am active. I love fruits and veggie's.  I was fine until the last three days and then it started again. 

I am depressed, angry, sad, and anything you can think of. I was doing so good. The doctor's was pleased and so was I. Now I just don't know. I feel down. I need all of your prayer's. They are so important. I just don't feel like myself now. 

It takes a lot to get me down. But this time it is really getting to me.
I am lost and so hurt. I don't know how much more I can take. I feel like just giving up and saying the heck with it. But I can not because if i do. I won't be here much longer.

I have so much to do and so much love to give. I can hardly breathe. My body feels like it is floating in space. It want's to do one thing and my mind want's to do something different.

Anyway I have to keep moving no matter what. Have a great day.

Ulcers can occur on any area of the body.
It has many causes.

Symptoms  of leg ulcers -Associated symptoms of a venous leg ulcer.  Are caused by blood not flowing properly through your veins.  It is known as venous insufficiency 

They occur as scabs or open wounds with redness and swelling,  most commonly on the lower legs and /or feet.

Tips for prevention- Activate calf muscles by walking and exercising.  Reduce fat and eat fruit and vegetables.  Sit with legs raised.  Avoid sitting with legs crossed.  If your work requires a lot of standing or sitting, try to walk from time to time.  If you have to stay seated,  move your feet up and down. 
Support stockings can help, but talk to Doctor first.  Massaging the legs will help.  Reduce alcohol intake.

I know from experience this is bad. I have it and never thought I would.  Because I was always active.  You never kept me down.  Then I got it. It has been rough. Because I had to ask for help. Which I had never done before. I had to stay in the house and not go anywhere for close to six months or so. It just about killed me.  I had always been on the go.  I could not clean the house.  There was so much I could not do. I had always been so proud of the way I looked.  But then I could not wear hose or dress up shoes. My legs was to swollen.  I have to have my legs wrapped at the hospital once a week. Sometimes I cry for three or four hours at a time.  I feel like no one cares.  I just want to be alone.  Then at other times I just wish I had someone to love me to understand and hold me.  I can not lift heavy things.  I feel sometimes I'm just existing not living.  This gets me down.  I feel I don't want anyone to see me like this. Sometimes you feel like just going to sleep and never waking up again.  The only thing that has helped me to cope is my poetry.  I have that and I'm proud of it.  I'm trying to get it into a book.  But have not enough money. But that is enough about me. This is terrible for anyone woman or man. You can lose your legs and feet if you do not do what the doctors tell you.
