I wish my Doggie's Doctor could treat me!
Let's back up for a moment.
Ahem. There. Ok. I took my Dog to her Veterinary office today because she was having problems. Turns out she is Diabetic. Her Doctor got her in right away. Everyone in the office was pleasant, and knew my Doggie's name, and she was not afraid one bit, I could just tell! They did tests, pronto, and had a diagnosis within an hour of my dropping her off! She will be in the doggie hospital for 3 days, get her sugar regulated, and I will have explicit instructions on how/what to do! Her Doctor called me and explained all options, treatment, everything --clearly--.
Now. I don't know about you. But I wish I could be treated by my Doggie's Doctor!

Why a Rheumatologist?

I read somewhere that now they think Fibromyalgia is a flaw in perception of pain by the brain. (Okaaaaay...)
So why are we not being referred to neurology??? Why the Rheumatologist???
I'm not actually expecting an answer, (goodness knows it's been a long time since we've had any that make sense) but just wondering if I'm the only crazy lady out here that has this thought. Thanks Mighties. I appreciate you. 🌹

Bipolar 2 mood slip

What a f@~ker this illness is. You're going fine, then you start to slip. Then sleep goes haywire. Seeing a psych takes too long.

I end up ruminating about meds. have bipolar 2 and hypothyroidism. Got a new GP recently who doesn't know me and wants to stop a thyroid med. Got me panicked, but there'll be nothing I can do about that. Just accept it.

I'm not as bad as I was a little over 2 weeks ago, but I'm still a bit shit - felt like getting worse after dose increase of T4 so stopped given that sleep worsening. On more diazepam and a bit more quetiapine, taking me to 4mg and 550mg of those. Bit of valproate and cipralex in the background and then my thyroid meds (T3 and T4)

Sleep was saved by diazepam until last 2 nights, but it's started to slip again. Up repeatedly with pangs of anxiety last night. Feel a tad high today if anything but then those feelings creep in and say "hey, what the fook do you think you're doing - try some anxious energy in your arms and legs" - trying mindfulness, which is helping, but I just want to be drugged up right now.

Gotta work. Can't justify time off sick. Fortunately work from home so can hide away. As much as I want to hide, I also want the whole world to know I'm not right and I want support. Easy to tears with that.

I’m New Here!

My name is Aud, and this is the year I’m advocating for my health and not being quiet about how I feel. I found out today that I have had Hashimoto’s Disease for years, and my previous doctors never noticed/told me I had anything beyond regular hypothyroidism.

I’m not sure how I feel. Part of me is validated; I’m not crazy. Part of me is triumphant; I stood up for myself, and I’m starting to get some answers. But mostly, I’m exhausted; I know I’m just at the beginning of this journey, and it is daunting. #HashimotosThyroiditis #Undiagnosed #ChronicIllness
