Thanks Beeswax and GLOVE..
It is very stressful, but I'm handling it so far.. The only problem I have had is that every time I find out I have to have another type of test for something lately, I burst out in tears and get all shaky.. get this feeling of doom which eventually passes.. but it's hard.. then I get it soaked in and can calm down a bit... I'm dreading the small bowel follow through.. drinking something that is all chemicals just sounds awful, but my husband had to do it twice when he was having a Diverticulitis attack and said other than it tasting totally artificial, it wasn't that bad...
I do thank GOD that I have good insurance.. even though it is expensive each month, the money I would have to pay for everything I've had done lately would have wiped me out for YEARS... lol...
Oh and GLOVE.. I'm still thinking about
your situation.. I sure hope you can get some kind of assistance with that whole co-pay thing... GEEZ.. I'll be praying for you... I have come to the conclusion that God is in Control.. even though I don't have any idea right now why we are going through all of this.. could be we've already been a blessing to someone or will be in the future... Either way, that's how I prefer to think.. it helps me deal with everything, once I get past my panic attacks.. lol...
