Hell of a Week Ahead

This week I am having major dental work, a colonoscopy, acupuncture and blood work!  Yes, all in one fun-filled week!  I made my colonoscopy appointment a couple of months ago and then my Rheumatologist told me that I could only have dental work done when my immunosuppressant drug was at it’s weakest, which is this week.

Tomorrow I am getting six old mercury fillings replaced plus one cavity filled.  Next month I must have the other side done.  I really don’t know what I am in for but I got a little alarmed when I saw this tweet last week from

@phatmommy: Had mercury filling replaced. Dentist & nurse wore masks, looked like hazmat team. For bit of mercury that’s been in my mouth for 30 years?

@mamasick:  @phatmommy I need 12 filings replaced! All mercury. Not b/c of that but b/c they are so old. God help me!

@phatmommy:  @mamasick I will just say one thing. NOT FUN.

So, if you don’t hear from me for a while, you know why!  I think people who are chronically ill really rail at God and the Universe when they need something normal done like dental work or get something common like a really bad cold.  On top of everything else I need this?

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
