Doctor's appointment

I went to the doctor's yesterday for a medication check-up. I told the doctor that I wasn't feeling like the doses needed to be increased, so she kept them at the same doseage for right now. She also asked for blood work to see how everything is going. The lab technician got it on the first try, which I still find amazing since my veins are deep. The only thing I didn't like about the doctor's visit was the weight checking, which left me feeling down. Plus the drive home from the doctor's made me tired, so I slept pretty good last night. Had enough energy to do a morning workout on the excercise bike this morning and I feel great. #DoctorVisit #bloodwork #MorningWorkout

Finally getting the tests I need #Diagnosis

It has been 7 years since I got Lyme and was "never the same again" and 3-4 years since I was made to realise there's something autoimmune that's happening here. Yet after many visits to different doctors it all seemed so hopeless, they all did basic bloods and shrugged when all seemed fine. Even the internal medicine doctor ordered a bunch of nonsense tests. Finally one of my friends suggested I see a rheumatologist, who is ordering a proper autoimmune panel.

On one hand, I am hopeful. Could I finally get some answers? On the other hand, I am scared. What if I finally get some answers? What if I get confirmation that I am indeed going to be living with a lifelong chronic illness?

I know we shouldn't think that way. But it's the reality of it, if these tests come back conclusive.. Am I ready for it? #ChronicIllness #bloodwork #postlyme #autoimmune


Wish me luck!

I'm going to my ENT today to discuss my bloodwork results and figure out what to do about my acid reflux that has damaged my vocal chords. We also need to discuss my recurring strep infections and consider tonsil removal. I really hope that it does not come to that.

Sending my best to anyone else seeing a doctor today!
