So today is doctor day. I have to say I'm not looking forward to it, I have seen this man before, years ago, and he completely blew me off. He is supposedly the best rheumatologist (sp) in the Des Moines area, so we will see. Back then, he sent me on my merry way..telling me whatever might be wrong with me was not in his area. Since then, I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and sjogrens disease, both of which are his area. Neither of these things will kill me, but they certainly are playing hell with my life. I learned a long time ago with doctors that if what is truly wrong does not show up, give it time. It will either just go away, or become completely clear to all. I guess now it's completely clear? I can't really say. The tests all confirm it, but we all know it depends on the mood of the doctor. Yes, I really believe that. I have seen two different neurologists in the recent past, both of which agree that I have severe neuropathy. Both cannot understand why I have it, and the sjogrens provides the missing link. So, we will see. I have my doubts. All I want is help with coping because there are days when I see my future, living under a bridge, unable to support myself because of medical problems.
Yesterday, we were supposed to get a little snow. All predictions were less than an inch, with major winds. Hmm..by seven am when I left my house for work, there was about four inches, and the winds were blowing about thirty miles an hour. It was the worst drive to work for me, since the beginning of winter. And that is saying something. By ten am, there was a blizzard warning in place, travel was not advised anywhere, and I was already at work, twenty miles from home. By two pm, interstates and highways were being shut down, as the plows could not keep up with the winds and snow drifts. I made it home. It was not fun. We ended up with more than seven inches of the lovely crap and I am so fed up with it, I can't begin to tell you. This morning, it is better. The winds are no longer more than fifty miles an hour, and the snow has stopped. I just can't take much more of this. I'm serious. Arizona, here I come.
Happy Tuesday. :)
