Bit of a rant today.....
As a teacher I have to teach 'the whole child'.
When is someone in the medical profession going to see me as a person and not a series of baffling conditions?!!!
Having been rejected for a lung transplant due to problems with my oesophagus I would have thought I'd see someone concerning this!!! No!!! I was given some tablets that I can't have due to being on Citlopram which I have to have due to my anxiety that was brought on by illness and accentuated by prednisone!!!
2 weeks ago I finally took my emergency medication as I had a cough, trip to the doctor - to see locum - peak flow checked- low!!! SATs ok!!! You've not got a chest infection but maybe you'd benefit from some steroids!!!!! What the steroids that don't work apart from increasing my anxiety!!!
So, I still have my cough.... appointment with rheumotology department yesterday- latest prognosis I'm suffering from severe reflux which would explain my cough, voice and distended stomach!!!! So new medications to take......
And don't even start me on the mystery of why I have trouble walking more than a 100 m even indoors without getting tight in my chest yet I can march and even jog on the spot!!!!
Thank you to anyone who reads my rant 😃
In the meantime one foot in front of the other.....
Wishing you all a good day xx
