I’ll Just Add This To My To Do List

After my rant yesterday some of you may be wondering why 2 doctors appointments and not eating lunch would tick me off so much. Things like that are pretty common in my life. Doctors appointments go longer than expected and I can do pretty well with missing a meal or too.

The thing that added to this was what my doctor told me. I knew I was going to get a diagnosis concerning my kidney but I didn’t expect all of the extra work involved with this diagnosis. For someone with no other medical problems it wouldn’t be too bad, not that I’d wish this on anyone. But for someone like me who has too much medical stuff to handle already and is overwhelmed with doctors, medicines and labs this news set me off.

I now have to go for blood tests once a week for a month, monthly tests for I don’t know how long, change my meds for the next few days and then change them as my labs come in, if they show my Potassium levels to be higher or lower and see the doctor every three months unless there’s problems with my labs.

OK so more things to remember, keep track of, drive to the lab for, get stuck for and just do, do, do. And it all centers on my health. I’d like to forget about my health for a bit and focus on me, my family, friends, just doing fun stuff. I wanted to go to BlogHer but how could I, if I have to nap and worry about getting sick or needing a scooter to get around?

Pity Party over and on to better stuff. But I just feel pissy and I want to for a while.

  1. Were I in your shoes, I would have had a nice little pity party myself. Good luck with all this and I hope it all comes out for the best!
