I just keep missing the chat. I want to come so much. Could you please do the reminder the day before or something? I don't know. I'm really frustrated. I would really love to come to the chat room, but by the time Jerome gives the computer to me, the chat is always over. It seems nothing goes right for me these days.
I just got my approval numbers today from the lady at the department at my drs. office. I can finally call later today and get those appointments made. I can't wait to see if anything has worsened. Hopefully nothing, but I'm afraid that something is worse. It hasn't rained or snowed today. the sun shined all day. My pain has been really high. It had been doing better since my prescription was filled with the Mylan patches. I was really glad. Now, today I've been in a 8-9 just about ever since I got up. I don't understand. It has been cold today, but it's nice and toasty in here. I hope it's just the weather affecting me. I'm really concerned about this.
I have so many health problems, I can't keep up.
I have to keep up with the diabetes and make sure the blood sugar numbers are doing good, I have to make sure that I take the meds and insulin for that at the right time. I have to make sure that I take my breakthrough meds so I don't get so much pain. I get in pain, and then I take the oxycodone little 5mg tablets and I'm chasing the pain around because I didn't take it before it go so bad. If that even works anymore. Agggg.
Then I had last Friday night, We all know what happened there, so I'm not repeating that. I am supposed to follow up with my pcp, but what's the point? I don't understand? She's the one that sent me. The ER dr. even made a few calls while i was there to tell the oncall dr. what was going on. All I have to do is give her some papers that the ER dr. gave me for her. It's a copy of the EKG that she did, the blood work results, and the X-ray results. I have an appointment on 4/1, a week from today, for my mammogram which will be done there. The lab and the x-ray(etc.) department are there. It's called Lifetime Health Center. I thought that I would give her the papers when I get done with the mammogram.
My pcp just realized when I was there Friday (or it was the first time she mentioned it) that I have pcos (polycystic ovary syndrome), so she wants me to go to the West Seneca (which is where I live) office to an ob/gyn. I really don't want to see pregnant ladies every time I go there. That's really not my thrill of the day (sorry, I'm being a smart alec). I won't go there unless I can see a female dr. I was going to a nurse practioner at a place that was in the office of my last pcp until I started seeing my current pcp. I decided to let her take care of my female exam, etc. I want to go back to the nurse practioner if possible if there's no female at the other place.
last year sometime I had the test where you do a pictures of your heart to see if it's working properly. i can't remember what it's called. my pcp has been trying to get me to go to a cardiologist and get a stress test done where they put in an iv and shoot something in where it makes your heart race like it would if you were doing a walking stress test. I'm scared. I'm afraid it will go too fast and what if they can't get it slowed down. HAS ANY ONE HAD THE TEST WHERE THEY INSERT THE IV AND SHOOT IN THE STUFF TO MAKE YOUR HEART BEAT FAST TO CHECK YOUR HEART? Sorry for the caps, I wanted that question to stand out, so you could see it.
Well, ill go for now. you all take care. i hope you're all having a low pain night and are able to get a good night sleep.
love and hugs
TMJ and SE I hope you're both resting now.
