I know I've been posting a lot the last day or so. But I seriously can't take this anymore. I go to all these appointments and don't get better. The psychiatrist I wanted to go to has dismissed me as a patient. They didn't give me a reason. They said they're simply referring me back to my original psychiatrist. I think it's because I had to cancel appointments because I had such a difficulty getting in there. And that's fine that's my fault. Just tell me that's the real reason.
I can't deal with a psychiatrist, a primary care doctor, neurologist, a rheumatologist, physical therapy and Pain Management and expect to make all of these friggin appointments. And I'm not better! They aren't making me better!
I saw the rheumatologist today. He says it doesn't sound like I have rheumatoid arthritis or any autoimmune disorder. He says it sounds like I have fibromyalgia. He said exactly what I expected him to say. I'm getting blood work to confirm what I've already been suspecting.
I was glad to hear that it's not rheumatoid but when he talked about what's involved in treating fibromyalgia, I tried to think positively at first but now I'm just frustrated and disgusted.
I can't manage this. Look at all the specialists I just listed. How can I do this? I'm so tempted to just say screw it and live with the symptoms as best as I can. Just keep going to physical therapy and go to the psychiatrist only when I absolutely need to. Not bother with the rheumatologist or the neurologist. I can't take this anymore. I'm getting nowhere.
Good morning!Today I was reading up on this year's flu outbreak. It's not A-strain-dominated (y'know, our usual H-N friensd.) This year, looks like the uS is getting hit by B/VIctoria --- which isn't dangerous per se, but certainly isn't the usual "dominant" flu. So far, over 60 percent up to 70 percent of flu cases tested for strain? Yep. B/Victoria. (Named for Victoria, Australia.) And, be...
