Why I fear doctors, hospitals, and test results

Since my first chronic illness diagnosis in 2001, my life, that is my chronic life, has been nothing short of a nightmare.

I know my body well.  In fact I know better than any test or doctor.  Not to sound conceited, but not one test or scan has ever shown the destruction that has been taking place in my abdomen since 2003.  NOT ONE!! However, my theories have been validated in surgery and each surgery was proved necessary.

Before you suggest that my fears aren’t warranted, I need for you to understand something…… I do not have White Coat Syndrome, where patients experience a higher blood pressure reading when at the doctor’s office, it goes way beyond that.  My fears and phobias stem from incompetent care.  Not from just one doctor or surgeon, I am talking double digits!!!

In case that is not enough of an explanation, here is a list of some of the reasons I fear doctors, hospitals, and test results……

Make your bed more comfortable for under $50

How to make your bed more comfortable for under $50

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How many nights do you lie awake wishing your bed was more comfortable?

Even with an amazing pain management plan, discomfort in bed has the ability to derail my attempt to sleep, interrupt my slumber, or increase my morning pain level.

Does this sound familiar?

Look, I get that not everybody has thousands of dollars just waiting to be spent on what feels like a selfish purchase, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting a good night’s sleep.

First, never allow yourself to think or listen to anyone who tells you that purchasing items to make it possible to sleep better is a selfish waste of money.  A bed might just be a bed to someone who has never had to recover from surgery or was bedridden for weeks, months, or years from chronic pain or an illness.  But for those of us who have, we KNOW that a comfortable bed plays an important role in our daily lives.  That without reaching a restorative level of sleep, our pain increases and our productivity decreases.

Now let’s take a look at some products that are all priced under $50 and that will have you looking forward to going to bed instead of dreading it……..

How to plan the best summer vacation despite your chronic illness

How to plan the best summer vacation despite your chronic illness

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Does the thought of taking a summer vacation get you excited or does it send chills down your spine?  I loved traveling before I became chronically ill.  In addition to yearly Disneyland vacations, I loved exploring new areas in other states or within the ones that I lived in.  Weekend road trips without a destination were my favorites.

Soon after chronic pain became a part of my daily life I began to loathe traveling. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to go exploring, instead it became too painful. Not only did my excursions increase my pain while away, it would take weeks and sometimes months to recover from them once I returned home. Not wanting to spend most of my time recovering I opted to stop traveling.
