Hey Purple Butterflies!
I have been going through a lot this month. Some of my medication is still helping me. Whereas there are others that aren’t doing the trick. I have been more nauseated over the past few weeks. I feel this is partly due to increased pain mixed with uneven sugar levels. All of this has put me in a bit of a funky depression. I fight it with everything I have. Yet it seems to creep upon me when I am at my weakest, i.e., in pain. My new Rheumatologist didn’t work out the way I had hoped. She was extremely kind and caring. The issue I had with her was that it was so hard to get a hold of her, get my medication refilled and make an appointment. Even though I have been going through all of this, I still have high hopes for 2023! I have set a health plan of action for the next few days. My husband and I are going to investigate Medicaid to see if that will better assist us with our needs. I will return to my Neurologist, so I am able to at least get my medications refilled. She, too, is a busy doctor. It’s just the price I pay for going to one of the best Neurologists in Dallas. I have mentioned this several times, but I refuse to settle with just any doctor. The difference with my busy Neurologist is that she has an assistant of which I could easily make an appointment with her.
