Off to see the rheumy this morning. Have been making a list of questions since my memory is so wonderful (?!) lately. Hoping and praying he can give me some answers to what the heck went on this last ten days and how to avoid going thru it again! Noting new, and not so new, symptoms. Been noticing my hands are weak, especially my right, which is new. Thought it was from the bruising (had an IV blow out in it) but it's getting worse not better.
Been working on just relaxing and paying attention to me, not letting my 'fair weather' friends get me down! Some people just need to grow up. I also realize most have NO IDEA what this (and other) chronic conditions do to people. And some don't want to know because they're too fearful. What I personally have decided is that my limited energy resources will be dedicated to myself and others who 'get it'.
Don't like using the anti anxiety med, but it does help so I'll use it. Also don't like using too much pain relief, but there again, I'll use it.
Next up, calling an attorney who was recommended to take up the fight with Social Security for me.
Got to figure out the financial end of this new life of mine.
Will check in later.......LOVE knowing you're all out there!!!
