I had a call in to my pcp since Monday, asking for her to get me tested for the MTHFR issue. If I have this, then all this time, money, effort will be for naught.*
I hadn't heard back from them, so yesterday I phoned again, asking what the status was. Receptionist said, well, she doesn't know anything about this, what is it? OMG. I said, well, why don't you look it up? So, I read some stuff to her, explaining how this is necessary to get tested, or *see above.
Last evening I was so close to ordering the 23andme test, at the song of $100. I made myself relax, take a breath, and wait until I heard from the Dr. So glad I waited.
PCP office just called and said the dr has the blood script ready, did I want to p/u, or have them fax it to the annex!
I'M GETTING TESTED FOR THE MTHFR ISSUE TODAY!!!!
What's amazing to me is I have only seen my 'new' pcp once, and now she is stepping up and supporting me with what she is able, to further my completing my puzzle with healing my illness. She believes me!!!!!
Yes, I'm crying now. I (as we all do!) try so hard, and get pushed back too often, and having this small/large support come my way is not taken lightly. I pray for each of us to get what we NEED. WHEN we need it!
Hang in there. I hope you, reading this, takes heart, and helps give you a bit of encouragement to keep on going.
My gratitude to this group. You have helped me in more ways, in more times than I could ever express, as tears stream down my face.
THANK YOU, EACH OF YOU.
