Evening Everyone:

Warning, this is going to be a good vent. On Monday this past week I went into the doctors office and saw my regular PCP. She told me that my ESR and CRP and CCP were all elevated. That my monocytes and lymphocytes were also elevated. She figured this was why I was feeling so poorly. My Vitamin D is significantly decreased and my insulin levels are elevated. That my done density is 16% worse than last years from all the steroids I use. She told me to bump up my steroids a bit and take more pain meds to help with the pain, and my endocrinologist would call me later in the week. I left the office feeling like things were under control.

Friday, I woke up with severe chest pain on the left side. I felt like I had been hit by a moving object. My endocrinologist called me and we discussed how I was feeling and she recommended I go to the ER as it was almost 5pm on Friday night. She also told me because of my vitamin D levels being so low I'm to take 2 50,000 unit tabs once a week for 8 weeks. She was concerned about my insulin levels, and advised me to go onto a low carbohydrate diet, with eating no more than 30 grams of carbohydrates per day. She wants me to start taking Glucophage XR daily and Lasix to help with the water gain I'm having. Looks like my 7 years worth of steroid taking has me pre-diabetic.

Well I chose to wait last night and I went into the ER this morning for my left sided chest pain. What a flipping quack I saw. She didn't hook me up to a heart monitor or anything. I explained I have lupus/RA/Cancer and that my blood levels were elevated on Monday earlier in the week. She didn't order one blood test, no ekg, NOTHING NOT A DARN THING. She, looked at me as said I know you "Chronic" patients deal with a lot and as we already know whats wrong with you there's not need to test you unnecessarily. Look at your arms the veins are all messed up so we'll pass on the IV. I'll have the nurse give you a shot of Toradol and Dilaudid with benadryl. Have a follow up with your Rheumy. That was it that's all I got out of this stupid doctor.

Monday, is a federal holiday and my PCP and rheumy are both off as the Naval doctors don't work on federal holidays in their hospitals except in the ER and on the Wards. I swear I'm so sick of dealing with doctors. I'm sick of my body on working like it should. What an idiot this woman was, I swear if I have a heart attack and die this weekend I hope my husband sues the heck out of them. I feel no better except the pain eased up a bit but now the pain meds have worn off and I'm back to being uncomfortable again. I'll be contacting my PCP on Tuesday first thing.

I'm sorry to dump on you all like this but I just am so fed up being sick. I'm tired of being just another number among a huge amount of others. I'm a person who has feelings and am struggling to stay alive. I'm sure some of you are saying just go to another hospital. Well military insurance works funny and I need to be careful what I choose to do as I may end up with an ER bill to pay myself. Yes, I've won my SSDI case per my attorney but I've still not received a letter from the courts so I'm leary of taking a chance on a civilian hospital. We can't afford a huge hospital bill if medicare doesn't cover it. I'm fed up with the stuff I don't want to be a patient anymore I swear to God I'm done with my doctors. I'm struggling to keep my cancer at bay which I think I'm loosing that battle. My lupus and RA are taking a huge hit on me what am I suppose to do here. Now I know why I chose to wait yesterday and I should have stuck to my guns and didn't go until I could see my own doctor.
I hate my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so so ready for the cancer to be bad enough that we can do the transplant. I can't handle another day like today I'm sick of them I truly am.

Thanks for listening to me carry on. I know you all understand and that's why I come here to express my feelings. My husband and daughter just don't get it. Take care everyone, and pray that I make it until Tuesday when I can see my normal doctor.

Love,
Barb

Oh sweet heart, I'm so sorry you had alousey doctor. They seem to be everywhere. They should have a different doctor there tonight. they always change rotations on weekends. I know you don't want to see anymore but somtimes we hav to do what we don't want to do. Is there any thing you may have done to cause the pain? slept wrong lifted somthing? I'm glad you came here to talk it does help a bit to get it off your chest. Maybe a hating pad would help. Or if you have somthing for anxiety it might help a little. Please don't let it get so bad that we have to worry about loosing ya! Tell them you want an EKG. I don't really have any answers. I just wish I was there so we could fight these idiots together. I hope you get that paper soon. I got my paper the other day and it went back to sept of last year. Which is a blessing.

I will continue to pray for you that this all comes together soon. Getting these lousey  on call doctors is diffinently not a good thing. Why does it seem like we get the sickest at night or weekends?

I hope you are feeling a little better now try to rest and take care.

Please let us know if we can do anything.

love ya

Sappy, I know, but I write this trying not to cry. I hear and understand your pain - at least as much as I can without having quite so much illness myself.

We love you, and if I had one wish to grant it would be that all these illnesses be removed from your life. You've had enough "trials" for long enough! Enough is surely enough!

PS. I just read recently that with SSDI, Medicare doesn't apply for 2 years -- yet previously I had read it applies immediately. So maybe it varies from case to case - you are wise to wait until you know for sure.

I'm trying to hold back the tears here with Lynnwood too.  I'm sorry Barbara.  That is completely inexcusable what they DIDN'T do for you at the hospital.  I wish we could all come to you and be your nurses.....Rosie would bring lots of tea, for sure!  The rest of us would be bending backwards (as physically possible, lol) to help you in any way we could.  You have been through enough.  Like Lynnwood said, "Enough is enough." 
 
Praying for you Barb.  Please keep us posted on how you're making out this weekend okay?  If you can. 
 
Lots of love,

Barb,

I'm glad you came here to vent. Yes, glad. Sometimes we need an outlet for our experiences, thoughts and fears. This is a safe place with people that care about you lots and can sympathize and empathize with and for your as much as we can since we aren't in your shoes.

In my book the ER doc violated the oath that doctors take: First do no harm. That's all I can say about that. Put that idiot out of your head as much as possible. Think hard about good memories you have, peaceful places you would like to visit or have visited. Try to let yourself go there in your mind as much as possible. If you have any, play some peaceful, relaxing music. This can help you "float" on the music to relax you. The goal is to de-stress and calm yourself as much as possible.

Take care, Barb. You are such a valuable person to so many. I'll be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers.

OH NO!! Of course you are mad!!! I"M MAD . . . I'm mad that our military families have to beg for proper help. Its one thing when civilians get a bad experience at a doctor or hospital . . . we can chose a different doctor or hospital next visit . . . but you are SO stuck. Urghhhh!! I'm so sorry sis. Your dominoes really have fallen . . . what a chain reaction.

Will be praying for a better situation for you Barbara. Hugs, prayers, blessings and some hot tea for you.

Blessings!

(((Barb))) doesn't it just make you so mad to be treated like this, what gives them the right arent they meant to be human and compassionate, isnt that what a doctor should be, I don't blame you for being mad im still mad from my experience, and they say its bad for us to stress, what do they expect!  My thoughts are with you it isnt easy having this awful thing to face time after time with no one paying attention. 

My thoughts are with you and I hope your weekend isnt to unpleasant

Love you lots

Oh Barb, I'm so sorry for all the trouble you're having.  What a mess!  I hate ERs- waiting forever and then some!  And never knowing the kind of care you'll get.  On another note, I have diabetes and high blood pressure caused by lupus and take meds each day.  Interestingly, methotrexate helped decrease my blood sugar so I was able to decrease my Actos to 15mg daily.  I hope you're able to rest comfortably today and MLK Day.  I'm praying for you.  Love, Butterflake

I did the military hospital thing- back when I had my second daughter. I KNEW something was wrong with her- KNEW IT but they said they couldn't see anything and called me a young mother and depressed- I WAS NOT DEPRESSED. My daughter died. I had a repeat in the civilian hospitals years later and my son died as a result. GO BACK TO THE HOSPITAL! Insist they page your doctors and ask them what they want done if you get the same $%^&* for a doctor. Your husband has no rights to sue with a military hospital unless the laws have been altered- considering this is the military I doubt they would ever remove their protection. I am sorry but I learned the hard way you have to force them to give you proper treatment. Never allow them to treat you like a "chronic" case, you have too many different problems and all the complications that go with each in addition to the complications caused by the combo. HAVE YOUR OWN DOCTORS PAGED AND ASK THAT THEY INSTRUCT THE ER. I am giving you the info my rheumy gave me. I nearly died from my gallbladder because of ER idiots until I insisted they ask my rheumy how to treat me.

Hi Everyone:

Thanks so much for your support I really appreciate it. Well I managed to sleep through the night and into late morning. I got up for a bit and did some chatting and realized I really wasn't up to chatting so I had to leave. My chest pain is a bit better. I do get short of breath when I get up an walk around. I woke up with a really bad sore throat and a low grade temp. I'm sure I'm battling something a virus or bacterial infection. I know my doctor isn't in till Tuesday but I'll be in first thing to see someone in the internal medicine clinic.

Just wanted to let you know I've read your posts and appreciate everything you say to me for encouragement. I'll keep you posted on how things are tomorrow.

Love,
Barb

Medicare does NOT start until you have been on disability for 2 years.  There is a 6 month qualifying period at the start of your disability so if your disability started 6 months ago you would then be eligible just now.  Medicare will kick in 2 years after your SSDI disability payments start.
 
All cases are the same.  There is no individual consideration.
 
Keep in mind that your will get basic medicare and you will be eligible for a prescription plan but you will NOT be eligible for a medicare supplement plan (medigap) until you are 65.  Medicare basic pays for about 80% and medigap plans pick up the rest (usually not prescriptions but some do).
 
You might qualify for medicaid but that is different and is usually based on income...or lack of it.
 
The whole health insurance situation is the USA is a disgrace.  So many are not covered or only covered partially.  Many cannot qualify for insurance and could not afford it if they could.  Something has to be done. 
 
Hope you get approved for SSDI but it will not qualify you for medicare unless your SSDI eligibility date is 2 years or more.  I had to wait about 15 months after getting SSDI until I got medicare.  Since I had insurance and the eligibility date was only 2 months before I was 65 it was no big deal.  It did save me some money insurance payments for those 2 months.

Hi Everyone:

Thanks for the information Bill. My disability date is August 1, 2004 and my SSDI is approved from that date so from what your saying I would qualify for medicare now. I have a question though do I have to accept the medicare? And if so how much will it cost per month?

I'm feeling a bit better today but I'll be contacting my doctor in the morning I ran a temp all night. Hope you all are doing well. Bill thanks for your information.

Love,
Barb

Barb,
 
If your disability date is 8/1/2004 you will qualify.  You do not have to take medicare but if you have private insurance it might be better coverage for less.  Cost is about $96 per month for basic medicare.  The drug plan I opted for is about $31 per month and my supplemental program is $116.
 
Unless you are 65 you would not be able to get a supplemental/medigap program in most cases even though you qualify for basic medicare which pays 80% of your expenses.  A medigap program picks up the rest and a prescription program picks up the meds.
 
In total I pay about $240 a month for coverage better than what I had.  Meds are cheaper and no deductables.  I had individual insurance and it was very good but had some high deductables.  Now, my costs are about $400 a month less, meds are cheaper and I have no deductables.  Overall, I will have better coverage at a much lower cost.
 
Depending on your state there might be medigap plans for those under 65 but they are probably very expensive.  A friend of mine had one and it cost about $525 per month.  He just turned 65 and the same type of plan only costs about $130 per month.  Our healthcare system is so messed up!!!!! 
 
Every state is different on prescription and medigap plans.  You can get help on these programs at www.medicare.gov   There are calculators to help you find the best programs for you.  Otherwise, it is like doing a thesis on advanced math.
 
Life is good for me now.  And a little better this year now that I am saving a few dollars on healthcare.

Oh Barbara, your experience sounds just awful. Your story about the ER doc is precisely why so many of us avoid going to the ER even when we should go. It's like they don't know what to do with people who have chronic illnesses so they don't do anything. I can't believe they didn't at least hook you up to a heart monitor with all the pain you were having and at the very least do a basic blood work up.

Vent anytime you want to Barb. Like everyone else said, you have more on your plate than anyone should ever have to deal with. Hang in there and take care of yourself.

Love,

Dear Barbara,

How are you feeling this morning?  I can't believe this woman didn't even run an EKG on you? That's terribly frightening, as I think that is standard.  Whether you have lupus, blood cancer, and everything else you have, or not, that should be independent of chest pain.  They needed to rule out heart issues at a minimum, and it's inexcusable that they didn't.  In any case, I pray that you feel better soon and that you get the treatment you deserve.

Hi Carol:

No I didn't see my doctor yesterday, but I did see someone different than my doc. My Ekg was fine except for an abnormal T wave. He basically said I had pleurisy and to see my regular doc on the 1st of February. I'm having less chest pains, but I'm very short of breath. I'm going to send my doctor an email and she what she has to say. I'm going to run out of pain meds before I see her so maybe she can get me in sooner.

Yesterday, I had a infusion of metabolic medicine to help with bone growth. As my pred is thinning my bones really bad, So the gave me Zomaita for my bones. It gave me a slight headache and I felt fluish. Anyway I'll let you know what my doctor has to say when I hear from her. She'll have 72 hours to respond after reading my email.

Love,
Barb
