I am grateful for the doctors I have been given. I also feel very lucky. They have listened and worked with me and not just thrown things at me to try. They take into account not just my chemical imbalances but emotional and environmental as well.
It’s sad that we get our medical bills before we get a diagnosis. lol
Today my mom came up and helped me fill out my medical pages for the new insurance (like 20 pages). When I saw the “packet” – as they called it- I got an instant anxiety attack. Dirk’s comment on the whole thing- “not much help when they are causing more stress.”
Also some of my problems
After yesterday’s doctor visit I came away understanding things better. One of which was that my current condition may be two separate problems or they could be related. But to start we should take one piece at a time and figure out where the problem lies. I guess that when you break things up it doesn’t seem overwhelming.
Yes I know I didn’t post yesterday- I was too stressed to find anything humorous. Today I’m just tired. The MRI was nerve racking but I got through it. The genetic results were interesting- that’s the best way I can explain them since I’m still trying to understand them. But for the most part they confirmed what we already figured out over the past 15 years. I don’t do well with most medications. My list of available meds is much smaller than my unacceptable. Which should make finding the right “new” prescription easy.
Dirk and I were talking about the available medications compared to when I was first diagnosed. My choices were limited to five for the first few years. Now I can find a list of over fifty. That’s a big growth in the last twenty years- but is it really?
The human brain could still be considered a “last frontier” for understanding DNA chemistry – someday when we have a better way of learning each individuals chemical makeup can we create medicine that is beneficial. Unlike now where they are baiting Doctors to test their latest pill to see how many fish they can hook.
