    #chatcat76  I'm so excited...I found myself! Please don't reply to the text in the title as this is my home. I'm so sorry. I bet I'm the first one to make a mistake! The name of my closed group is Let's See the Patient. I'd love for you to join, as I'm getting all my writings together about my Chronic illnesses and I love to help make appointments go better. Soon, when I'm eligible, (I'm new, so I might not be "old" enough yet), I'd love to do "rooms". I'll get my story in asap. But I'm pausing for a flare to end!

    Have a good ??? My husband forgot to tell me what day it is.

    It's time to see the doctor, or new doctor. New paperwork, Yuk. Are you a 6 or 10 on the pain scale? Do you exercise enough? Walk 3 miles a day? Why are you in a flare? Why aren't you better? Did you do everything I've asked? How about trying alternative medicine? These are questions we might ask or be asked.

    Having after an auto accident, I guess I decided to try on a few things. They look horrible on me! :) lol.

    I'm finishing up my paper on how to get your paperwork done and have more time to visit with your doc. Are you afraid to question your doc?

    What about new things that crop up? I don't know, but I seem to be the petri dish of new things to explore! Sigh. As we say - If one has worked in health care, then when it hits, it hits hard. I don't like this side of the bedrails, but you have rights, you have the ability to check on proper procedures and ask questions. What works for one, doesn't for another. I would love to have you join my group, and I will try to help or discuss in-between pain days.

    I also have found a CURE for everything. Dress up, laugh and look good! I discovered my friends think "Oh, great! Isn't it wonderful she is doing sooo good and the worst is behind her"???? Actually, I think we all could win the Oscars.

    Love to have you!

    Virus time-Yay

    Chills, sweating, feel like I should be in the hospital! Ahh! All over aching and inflammation. Any suggestions that help you feel better? Hydrating, resting, doing all that.

    In a bad place right now... (picture: because who doesn’t love a cat in her own stroller? Lol)❤️💕🐱🐶💪🥰🤗

    I’m anxious. I’m leaving in an hour to go to the hospital for an urgent MRI on my brain. I’m having the MRI at 10:30pm. The symptoms I’m having, of course, are scary in itself and the fact I need to go now, but that’s actually not what is bothering me the most. Covid is pretty bad where I am right now. The hospitals are over run with Covid admissions and they are trying to make as much room as they can by sending patients to field hospitals and anywhere else that there’s room. I’m pretty much walking into a burning building as far as infection goes because the one I have to go to is one of the worst out breaks in my province. I can’t have anyone come with me for support so my husband will drop me off and wait the few hours in the car. If anyone has had a brain MRI, it’s more terrifying than most MRIs because you have to wear a cage-like contraption on your head/face while you’re already trapped in a tiny space for up to 60 minutes and you can’t move. I’m hoping I won’t have to wear a mask inside the machine as well. The last time I had one done 5 years ago, I was able to take an Ativan to calm (and it was still scary!). But this time, because of my symptoms and blood issues I can’t take anything. I’m have terrible coughing spasms (not Covid related) so I don’t know how I’m going to manage that when I’m not supposed even move. I think this is warranted anxiety, but obviously still unpleasant. My parents had to take my dog to look after her for me for a couple days, so I don’t have that important support. My cat is wonderful but she gives love on her terms only lol 🤷‍♀️ Any kind words or wishes would be appreciated ❤️💕💪 #Anxiety #BipolarDisorder #ADHD #PTSD #EatingDisorders #SensoryIssues #InflammatoryBowelDiseaseIBD #Allergies #SinusTachycardia #Hypertension #GastroesophagealRefluxDisease #ChronicPain #Nerve and joint pain #geneticblooddisorder #chroniccough #nausea #involuntarymovements #rashes #Fatigue #AutoimmuneDisease #DryMouth #Nightsweats #Endometriosis #kidneycysts #OvarianCyst #enlargedlymphnodes #Virus #Infection #CannabisCorner #MedicalCannabis #Isolation #Loneliness #nightterrors

    How do you manage #Bipolar at work?

    I’ve always quit jobs out of impulse or I can’t manage the depression. I’m going back to work soon and I’m scared not only about the #Virus. But also that my unspecified #Bipolar will cause me to have a really hard time. Any tips or tricks would be helpful.

    Elderly Couple Contention

    Because of the Pandemic, my husband and I have been fighting more. I want to feel safe and supported and he thinks it is all a big joke. He likes to listen to the radio stations that claim it is all political. We end up in separate rooms most of the time because we can't get along. I feel he is disrespectful to those that have suffered or died because of COVID 19. Is anyone else out there having the same contention with their spouse? How can we live together in peace at this difficult time? #pandemic #COVID19 #Virus #contention #corona

    #covid-19 & #Depression

    I tested negative for #COVID19 but this quarantine has my #Depression running ramped to the max. Bad enough that this is THE WORST time of year for me. I had seriously wanted to delete my social media platforms and now it's basically the only way to keep in touch with everyone. I've had to cancel & reschedule different events & functions. I see all the posts of friends either dying or having a loved one die, I am SO grateful that no one in my immediate family is suffering from this horrible #Virus BUT on the same note, my youngest child is an essential worker who lives at home, therefore we're still "at risk". Trying really hard not to fall apart, break down & let this #Depression monster win but the battle gets harder & harder. Some days, I just can't keep the dam of tears from flowing...

    #normal life

    This #Virus going around hasn't affected my l8fe except I get more time with my oldest daughter. That heing said, I'm begining to see all the little things that will prevent me from having a normal life. After being misdiagnosed bipolar, my own research lead me to # borderlinepersonalitydisorder. After lengthy discussion with my doctor they've agreed. I was at the river with my daughter's today, and for no reason at all I started to panic. My oldest is 12, my baby is 4. Luckily my oldest knows how to talk to me and calmed me down so I could get us home. I wasn't like this before. The relationship with my youngest ones donar (he is not a father by any means) os what pushed me over the edge from a functioning, slightly weird person to what I am now. He has taken my ability to have a normal life with my girls.
    Has anyome realized they will never have a n ormal life? How do you deal with it?
