I went to bed last night feeling like the dark cloud hovering over me was growing larger. Woke up this morning feeling defeated. That is until I checked my Twitter feed. I want to thank my sweet spoonie friends that rallied the troops to suggest a good Rheumie in my area. I can’t tell you how much this has touched my heart. Next I called to make an appointment with my PC. Thankfully he can see me on Monday, so hopefully I won’t have to go too long without pain meds. By this time my pain level was more than I could handle, so I took a deep breath and decided to allow my body to take the nap it desired.
After my nap I hopped on the internet to see if the suggested Dr’s were on my insurance list. Nope. 🙁 Even though I do not have Lupus, I left a message with LupusLA.org to see if they have any suggestions of Rheumies who aren’t afraid to treat pain. I am not going to get my hopes up, nor do I plan on giving up. I plan to breathe deeply and move forward. Whether I find a Rheumie or end up going the “green” route, eventually I will find some pain relief.
As for tonight I am reminding myself of how much I do have to be thankful for.
