Great idea....thanks for thinking of everyone! I am glad to hear you had such a wonderful family time.
I had a nice time with my 15 yr. old sister this weekend. We saw some movies, she slept over, I let her drive my car to get some practice in, and we went with my mom to visit my grandma.
On the flip side...I have been having some major panic attacks...so my pdoc has increased my topamax gradually and I am @ 175 for the next few days until I get to 200. I am on 1 mg of Xanax XR, but I am still struggling. I finally got my sleep study results back last week , and I have moderate/severe sleep apnea, I was fitted for my mask, and I am just waiting for my CPAP machine. I was so hopeful last week and I just want to feel better and everyone I talk to with sleep apnea says what a difference it makes. I call every day to check on the status, but it is caught up between the medical supply place and the insurance company, now they are saying 7 - 10 days. I know everyone is busy...but COME ON!!! I just want to feel better. It is a viscious cycle. I am doing everything I am supposed to be doing and it is taking forever to feel better. The sleep apnea drains my energy..the fatigue is terrible...no desire to do anything...depression...then throw in my allergies and my eating disorder. I have not been eating well at all. EXCEPT for yesterday and today. I finally took a stand and said....I know what works and I know what doesn't....so JUST DO IT.
Another thing....My pdoc was supposed to recommend a therapist (within her group) three weeks ago and that hasn't happened, no matter how many messages I leave. And to make matters worse, the pdoc's secretary keeps getting my FMLA and STD paperwork wrong, so I haven't been paid for my Leave of Absence from my hospital stay.
Sorry for venting....but I am trying to get healthy and I am trying to work on myself...but it is going so slow. I feel like I am hitting road blocks. Also, I haven't talked to Michael in over a week and I miss him very much.
