When all you feel like is a $$$ to your Doctor 🙄

I’ve been on the rollercoaster ride of what is the unfortunate ugly side of the country’s medical system, months of waiting lists, waiting from referrals from my primary care who will not touch me & authorizations from insurance AND I’M OVER NAVIGATING & ADVOCATING this never ending nightmare. I started this out of nowhere shoulder pain journey in November of 2021 here we are 24 doctors appointments, 12 prescriptions, 2 diagnoses 1 of chronic migraines & 1 of Chiari Malformation 1 - no surgery due to Chiari but there is some nerve damage in my brain which my NEUROSURGEON couldn’t telll me about because he just operates & referred to my neurologist. TAG your it!!! So now what…I sit here and wait in misery for your phone call to tell me when you can “fit me in next” WOOF
