Neurologist yesterday

WE WENT TO THE NEUROLOGISTS APPT YESTERDAY AND THEY WERE OF NO HELP WHATSOEVER. THE RESIDENT SEEM TO LISTEN AND UNDERSTAND, BUT WHEN THE BIG DOC CAME IN HE DIDN'T LISTEN OR TRY TO UNDERSTAND A WORD I WAS TRYING TO EXPLAIN TO HIM. HE WAS IN IDIOT. AND I TOLD HIM SO. I ALSO TOLD HIM HE WAS FULL OF CRAP. HIS BIG SUGGESTION TO GET RID OF MY MIGRAINES WAS TO STOP TAKING MOTRIN, TYLENOL OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

I TAKE MOTRIN TO HELP WITH MY FIBRO. BUT I MAY GO DAYS WITHOUT TAKING IT. THATS WHY I TOLD HIM HE WAS FULL OF CRAP.

WE ARE NOT GOING BACK THERE EVER AGAIN AND THEY KNOW IT.

THEY DID HOWEVER SET US UP WITH A HEADACHE SPECIALISTS IN DUBLIN AND PRAISE GOD THEY GOT US IN THIS MONDAY. I HOPE THIS GUY IS NOT THE IDIOT THAT YESTERDAYS WAS.

WE SPENT ALMOST 2 HOURS IN THE DOCS OFFICE YESTERDAY FOR NOTHING. OTHER THAN GETTING US INTO THE HEADACHE SPECIALIST, IT WAS A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND GOING TO ANY NEUROLOGISTS FOR MIGRAINES AT OSU.

ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE, I RAN INTO OUR CEDAR CHEST WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND WE THOUGHT I BROKE MY FOOT. BACK TO THE ER. THEY SAY IT IS NOT BROKEN (THOUGH I HAVE HAD ENOUGH BROKEN BONES IN MY LIFE TO KNOW WHAT THEY FEEL LIKE), BUT IT HURTS LIKE NO TOMORROW. I AM SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW UP WITH A FOOT DOC IN A WEEK OR SO TO SEE IF A FRACTURE HAS DEVELOPED. IT'S MY LEFT FOOT (WHICH I HAVE BROKEN BEFORE). THE BIG TOE, CLEAR OVER TO THE MIDDLE OF THE FOOT. IT IS AN UGLY SHADE OF PURPLE. COULD ANYTHING ELSE POSSIBLY GO WRONG???????

WE THOUGHT WE FOUND A SHRINK YESTERDAY WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ON OUR INSURANCE AND WE CALLED THEM. THEY SAID HE DOESN'T TAKE ANY INSURANCE AND WE WOULD HAVE TO SELF-PAY. IT STARTED AT $200 FOR THE FIRST HOUR AND $100 EVERY HOUR AFTER THAT. I TOLD THE RECEPTIONIST THEY WERE NUTS TO THINK WE HAD THAT KIND OF MONEY AND HUNG UP ON HER.

A COUPLE OF OUR FRIENDS ARE TRYING TO FIND US A CHRISTIAN SHRINK THAT WILL TAKE OUR INSURANCE. I PRAY TO GOD THAT WE FIND ONE SOON AND THAT WE CAN ALSO GET IN TO SEE HIM/HER SOON. EVERYONE IS CONVINCED I HAVE A CHEMICAL IMBALANCE AND THATS WHY WE'RE SEEING THE SHRINK.

I GUESS THATS IT FOR NOW. MY FOOT IS KILLING ME AND I NEED TO TAKE SOMETHING FOR IT. ALSO I AM SO WORN OUT TODAY I AM THINKING ABOUT TAKING A NAP AND ITS ONY 1030AM.

THANKS ONCE AGAIN FOR LISTENING YOU GUYS.

LOVE TO ALL AND GOD BLESS.

Aaahhh, I just lost the comment I wrote. Know that I am thinking of you and praying for you and hoping with you that the headache doctor can do something to help. In the meantime, that doesn't help how demoralizing and discouraging a visit like the one to the neurologist yesterday was.

Thanks for your prayers and thinking of us. We are also hoping that this specialist on monday will be able to help us and we can get on the road to recovery.

I don't know what I would do without you guys and your thoughts and prayers.

Love you,
Meg

Meg,
Sorry for all the doctor trouble. In some ways the doc is correct taking lots of stuff for the head bangers can lead to lots of bounce backs. I have to go cold turkey, so to speak, to stop them at times. It means a full blown head ache from heck but it’s the only way. I do think in your case he was wrong, very wrong. One you don’t screw with someone who is so close to the edge. Clearly this man has never considered poking something sharp into his head to try to stop the pain nor has he laid on the bathroom floor praying that it wasn’t a stroke. I’m praying that they find relief for you and soon.

My mom broke her foot and it took several days and a few x-rays to find all the breaks. I hope it isn’t broken but if so that they are able to repair it. I’m sorry for your time in the sand and I pray that you find comfort in Him.

I too hope the foot is not broken, but I have had enough broken bones in my life to know what they feel like. I will see the foot doc this monday so we will find out for sure.

Thank you for your words on the doc situation yesterday. I agree with everything that you said. At least I will NEVER have to see him again. Thank God for that. God has been with me all the way even though there have been days when I felt that I was going to die because of all that was going on. My relationship with God has been growing much stronger since Christmas and I am convinced that the devil is doing is best ( by all of this) to put a divide between God and myself which I will not let him do. God is my greatest friend and I know that He is there for me and loves me more than I can ever know.

Thank you for writing.

Love you,
Meg
