My computer was in the shop for a week which is why I have not been on here for a while. Lots of stuff has been going on. I think I’m going to take each crisis/happening per one entry.
Last Monday I had my monthly appointment with my Rheumatologist for my Orencia infusion. Between months I had done a bone density test. Insurance companies allow you to get them every two years. The test in 2008 had revealed I had Osteopenia which is the pre-cursor to Osteoporosis. It was a blow to me back then, being only 38 and not really fitting the profile of someone who should have this. Due to me still having regular periods I could only really take Vitamin D and calcium.
Two years later I now have Osteoporosis! I was really shocked that I had declined that badly considering my age and that I was taking the supplements. My doctor is running tests to see why this is happening. In the meantime he told me to make sure my floor is free of objects I might trip on and not “hurry anywhere”. Hello, I have a three-and-a-half year old? It’s impossible to keep a sparkling clean floor!
In the meantime I am so stressed out because I have so many deadlines for paperwork for disability and food stamps. I feel like I could be up for 24 hours straight and never get all this work done. Which is impossible anyway since I sleep and rest over twelve hours a day.
