After months and months of chasing drs to help me with my discoid and multiple appointments each week within the months and months to help nail down what my body is trying to tell me and after doors being slammed in my face....I got the glorious news today (x2!)
I got my intake appointment with the Lupus Clinic in Montreal! And I owe a member on here a very grateful thank you for leading me to it.
After my referral being denied by the immunology and internal medicine clinic here in Hamilton, I felt like I was at wits end. However, my partner remembered me talking about the post on here and how the one member had to assertively push to go to this clinic in Montreal and the good outcome it had for her; he took it upon himself to call them and explain my situation and if they could help....only 4 business days later....I got the call for my appointment!
November 30th can't come fast enough! Plus it will be a nice mini getaway as it is a 7+ hour drive.
And! I called my mom, who also has lupus, in hopes she would answer my call and provide me with a list of all her conditions. She has been ignoring me for years now (she is like Jekyll and Hyde, one time she loves me the next she hates me...but that's ok, she is still my mom :). Anyway, we talked and shared dr stories and complaints and more.
Beautiful day today it was for me
