I haven't posted in awhile except I did go to the depression page and post there a couple of times. Monday evening I went to the ER (couldn't get in to see a doc) because of that right midabdominal pain that radiates around to the back. The best way I know to describe it is it feels like I'm being cut in half. It is not always there but is more often than not. It has been getting worse (or I'm getting tired of having it) and I had been running a low grade fever for about a week.
Last ct scan showed nothing, I'm thinking maybe kidney stones (never had any). Well, another CT scan and a UTI which the doctor stated he didn't think would be causing that pain and nothing. I know I'm crazy but I also know this pain is real and that something has to be causing it. Anybody got any suggestions? I'm going to see a new doc tomorrow to beg him to find out what it is and fix it NOW! I feel like they think I'm drug seeking but I'm not I want it fixed so it doesn't hurt!
The other thing that has got me so far down is that my nursing license has not come through for TX and now I have to go through this whole process that is going to take months. All because in 1972 I was arrested for a misdemeanor called "Visiting a common nusiance". All these years I honestly thought I was found not guilty on appeal because the other 5 had to go back to jail (they were making examples out of us) and I didn't. Last week I found out the judge had suspended my sentence but upheld the verdict. It was suspended because I had moved away from where I had gotten in trouble and had a child. So thinking I was found not guilty I kept telling the BON in TX I have no convictions and therefore did not need to claim I had. So now 35+ years later I can't get my license until the BON does an investigation. Just for additional info, I got my nursing license in the state where the arrest occured.
As of this Friday I am out of a job. They have been holding on to me while the waiting was going on but feel they need to fill the posistion since this could go on for awhile. I understand I truly do but it was almost more than I could bear. They told me the day I get my license come back I have a job but that doesn't help now. Since I'm the insurance carrier. My husband is self employed. So that mean back to COBRA and paying that 600.00 a month
I know it may sound like I'm on a pitty pot but I assure you I'm trying not to be. It is just that 07 is turning into a year that if it could go wrong it did. I'm trying to stay positive, my husband says I may qualify for unemployment and if that is the case I could wait out the license thing. I was 18 give me a break! That might be nice to be able to focus on feeling better, take a break type stuff. We will have to see. So that's what has been going on lately. I also went on Cymbalta for depression the prozac seemed to quit working (can't imagine why)lol.
Any suggestions about the pain would be appreciated. Maybe adhesions? Urine showed something might be going on with my liver but CT didn't confirm that. Heck I don't know!
