The Wait is Over

After several weeks of waiting, my doctors’ appointments and tests begin tomorrow.

I see the Infectious Disease Specialist, who hopefully will determine if I have Lyme Disease. This is my third try for a definitive answer.

On Thursday I see my new gynecologist. I have been having heavy, painful periods, plus it has been a long time since I have had an examination.

I also pick up the materials for my sleep study Thursday night. I am excited to get the results of that because I feel that I have indeed been having sleep disturbances and that’s been a good part of what’s making me so exhausted.

I have been having blood in my urine every time my urine is cultured and a few weeks ago I had my urologist appointment. My cat scan of my ureters, urethra and bladder looked good.

On Monday I am going to have a Cystoscopy which will examine my bladder.

I think I am most worried about this procedure. I’ve never had it done before and if the news isn’t good I’m afraid to know about it.

I have a follow-up with my pulmonologist on the 30th to discuss the results of the sleep test.

Lastly, I see my Psychiatrist on the 31st. She’s been on medical leave. All of this medical upheaval has caused my depression to increase.

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.

      Thanks, Julie. Yes, I’ve got to get some rest in too. Some of these appointments are in downtown Cleveland so it’s tough dealing with distance and traffic.

        That makes it worse. I hope they are going well and you are finding the energy to get through them, as well as finding them worthwhile.
