Hi Livenlaugh, I'm sorry you are going through a difficult time. Don't give up though!
I know you must feel alot of frustration. You are looking for relief and a definate DX.
The main thing right now is that your symptoms are being treated. As you know it
can take awhile for a diagnosis. Sometimes coming off a med can make you feel ill and
a doctor can taper it down slowly if this is the case.
You are a very busy woman and sometimes it is easier just to say no to the things
you can't do and start delegating to make your job easier. You already mentioned
that you can't do 5 million things at once. It is time to start a new plan of action so
you aren't making yourself feel worse. Start by prioritizing what is really important
and get your family to pitch in. Why should moms get the brunt of everything?
As hard as it seems try not to focus on the dx, focus on what makes you feel better,
The diagnosis will come in time. The added stress of worrying about it will only hurt
you more. Remember you are stronger than you realize. Keep us posted. We care!
