A Little Less Frustrated

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

I am little less frustrated this week. It's been a weird week or so. My youngest had to re-take an end of grade test so he had to go to school an extra day and a half. So I was planning on having a little less to do but today is his final day. I hope that tomorrow actually feels like summer break.

I had my two doctor appointments with neurologists. The first doctor had a slow approach, very thorough and understanding. We talked about pain management options. He examined all possible reasons I had pain. The second doctor did about the same, but his approach seems to be a faster -get to the bottom of the thing. Both doctors agreed on what meds I should take, just a little different in dosage. And the last doctor injected me in the neck, and the first injected me in the booty. Neither of those seemed to make a difference in pain. The good news is that my neck is fine, it's a muscle/nerve issue. So no surgery there.

I was transparent about the fact that I went to both doctors, and they respected my right to get a second opinion. I feel better about that. The first doctor is hard to get appointments with, and the second doctor is much more reachable. I like that I can get in to see him.

I return to the second doctor in a month and the other doctor in four months.

Neither could say why I have such pain other than it's from daily use. No real diagnosis.

The meds I am prescribed still have weight gain as a side effect. YAY.

Lucy still has an abscess on her booty. It's getting better but it's certainly expensive treating it! She gets another laser treatment tomorrow. They have to put goggles on her and everything. She's adorable like that!

Right now I am so angry with myself for being fat. I hate it. I hate that I have pain that gets in the way of workouts. I hate that I eat too much. I'm getting my ass in gear. This has to stop. I've never snored in my life and now I snore. So there's a reason to get myself in shape.

    I am glad you had two opinions. Doctors can be frustrating as there isn't always a clear answer to things. I know that certain foods affect me more than I thought and add to inflammation. Listen to DCHANCE6. Love yourself a bit more. The snoring is probably due to weight and now sleep apnea. Lack of good sleep produces cortisol and that prevents weight-loss. It is all a vicious cycle, but finding foods that are triggers and getting that sleep taking care of can help.

    You need to be nicer to yourself, love. If you had a friend that talked to you like you talk to yourself, you wouldn't be friends. You can do this. I love Lucy! 🥰

    I am wanting to lose weight too. My husband is a hindrance. He is obese but whines if I fix healthy meals as he wants huge unhealthy ones like 2 double burgers, a large fry, 3 large sodas, ice cream. He snores horribly and keeps me awake.

    Lucy does look cute.
