Unfortunately . . . we sometimes just have to use our best judgment. We call our doc with our concerns and they tell us what to do and when to come in. If that's not enough and you feel like your symptoms are urgent, then you need to head to the ER. We really like to avoid the ER with issues that are more appropriate for a Dr. visit . . . but sometimes we have no choice.
So sorry there is so much to deal with all at once. This all becomes more complicated when we have so little energy to deal with it all.
Honest and truly . . . our attitude toward everything can drain our energy or add a bit of energy. So if there is ever any way I can turn on some positive thinking . . . it is really my best medicine by far.
I know life is REALLY hard for you right now. . . but I hope things start improving for you soon.
