Frustrated after dr. apt.

Friday, January 04, 2013

Had an appointment with Dr. K today. It didn't go as well as I'd hoped.

My list of concerns were:

1. Depression worse
2. Pain: elbow, hip, back (all unrelated)
3. Dry skin on my face.

1. First she wanted to blame my worsening depression on my thyroid, which I don't believe is very far off, if at all. She did get a clue and just raised my Bupropion dose instead. I guess that's about the end of the good news.

During this conversation re: depression, thyroid, etc. I discovered that it was she and not Dr. T that changed Greg's insulin and that she doesn't want him to see Dr. T any longer. She wants to do it all. Well, I believe that Dr. T who is specializing in diabetes should continue to regulate his diabetes. I'm still very stressed about this... and my appointment was more than 6 hours ago.

2. We did discuss all of my pains, but in the end nothing was done about any of them. I thought she'd either order some tests or send me for PT. But, hope, no closure what-so-ever.

3. No discussion what-so-ever regarding my skin, which is probably just as well anyway since it feels fine today. It hasn't felt too bad the past few days, but it was so dry it felt as rough as a scratch pad that you use to clean pots and pans.

Anyway, my mood pretty low and I could use prayers more than advice.

    Dee, check out fibromyalga. I was just diagnoised with it and my sister has it. There are pressure points in the body that react to being pressed. :(

    Well, URGH! I'd be frustrated, too. Vent away, my dear. After years of searching for a doc that will listen, I can sure commiserate. I hope the increase in bupropion helps. Trust in yourself and your instincts...you know what you guys need. I hope things get better. Lots of prayers going up for you...as always emoticon Hang in there, ok?

    Hugs.

I'd agree that Greg should stick with Dr T for his diabetes - but it's his decision, not yours, not today's doctors.

BTW dry skin is a symptom of an underactive thyroid. Vaseline do a cream for very dry skin that isn't greasy - it comes in a tub rather than a tube, and isn't very expensive.

If your joints are still painful next week, ask for another appt specifically to get help for them. It's worth persevering.

    I think that is a big red flag that your primary care doctor wants to manage a specialist issue! I would advise changing your primary care doctor. Their job is to treat the day to day stuff. An illness like diabetes needs a specialist that can keep your family up to date on the latest and have detailed knowledge of the disease.

    Hang in there Dee !! If you feel comfortable with advice you and your hubby receive from Dr T for his diabetes, I would continue to see him. Don't let your doctor badger you into doing something you don't feel comfortable doing.

How long have you been seeing this particular PCP ? maybe it's time for a change if you don't feel your concerns are being properly addressed.

And I'm definitely no expert, but have you been keeping up with your exercise ? If not, some regular exercise might help with your depression. It certainly wouldn't hurt.

Dry skin, have you been using a moisturizer ? My mom swore by Vaseline. She put a thin layer on before bed. I find that does work. but since I don't like feeling slimy at night, I usually just use a moisturizer. I like St Ives products. good price for a good product.

Much anxiety, Some depression, but overall a Good Day

Saturday, December 01, 2012

12/1/12

Day started well. I was up before 5 a.m. feeling awake and rested. Had breakfast, dropped DS off at a breakfast meeting, went to a f2f meeting, picked DS back up, took the dog for his vaccines, got a few things done around the house, had lunch, and headed with DH towards a movie theater. It was obvious we had left too late to get there before the movie started, so we decided to wait until tomorrow. We are planning on seeing ĎLincolní. I lurked in a couple of on-line meetings, but just didnít feel like sharing at those today.

Iíve really been having feelings of depression and anxiety lately, and today the feelings came and went throughout the day. As the day went on, the feelings got worse and closer together. Eventually I took my blood pressure to see if that might be to blame. Nope. My blood pressure was perfect. So, I just continue to do lots of praying. Iím sure much of it has to do with work; it so negative there and you can almost feel the evil in the air.

Food was good today. I was over on my calories, but it had more to do with the types of food and not the volume. I was actually quite happy at dinner. DH decided to order Pizza Hut. There are 8 slices in a large pizza and usually we each have two pieces and get two meals out of it. Now that DS is living with us, that donít work. I took two pieces anyway, but after I ate the first and started to eat the second, I realized that I didnít really want the second piece so I stopped! Yay! I did decide I was still a little hungry though and I allowed myself to have some ice cream to finish off my meal. I scooped it out, weighed it and did NOT go back for seconds. Yay! In fact food has been good since 11/20/12 :D

I read my OA readings today and some in my Bible. I also did lots of praying and listened to some Christian music on CD; a couple of the songs had me in tears Ö God is so good and I am so undeserving. Sometimes it is so hard to accept that someone would die for me; I certainly am not strong enough or courageous enough to die for anyone. Thatís why it is so hard; how can I accept something that given the chance, I would not or could not Ďreturn the favorí so to speak? Some of my prayer time today was used on trying to deal with this issue.

My plan of action seems a bit scattered. I rarely give it much thought on a daily basis although I do use many of the tools on a daily basis and possibly all of them at least a few times a week. So, I decided to get it out and look at it to see what I was missing and how I could do better at using each of the tools daily. As I read through, I remembered that Ďwritingí is one that I donít do enough; so here I am. ;-)

AnywayÖ today I am thankful that I went to the f2f meeting; it really did me good. Iím thankful for the feelings and progress I felt as I listened to the songs, that DS is attending his meetings regularly (though I wish heíd get help for his depression), that the dogís shots didnít cost as much as I thought they might, and that I know God will work things out for my good Ė in His time (and I hope that is sooner than later, lol).

Nighty night Ė everyone have a great Sunday and enjoy it best you can Ö Monday will be here all too soon :D

    Oh dearest Dee...
"God is so good and I am so undeserving."
GOD is so good and the only "person" in our lives who is perfect. And we are all deserving of having his love and help because it does not come with a price of having to be perfect. He accepts us with all of our inperfections. You deserve a a relationship with him. HUGS

" I certainly am not strong enough or courageous enough to die for anyone. Thatís why it is so hard; how can I accept something that given the chance, I would not or could not Ďreturn the favorí so to speak? "
Dee, until you are faced with having to make this choice, none of us know if we could do it. I KNOW if anyone threatened our children, we would step in and intervene with no thought of our own welfare. Could I lay down my life and give it for a stranger? I don't have that kind of strength either. I just don't know either Dee.

My mantra is "GOD is greater then any problem I have". Many times I lay my problems before him and ask for understanding and help.

    Hi, Dee. Glad to see you writing again...been missing you. Ya know, I think we all have times of questioning...God, ourselves, self worth, best plan of action, etc. And for me, at least, it takes time of praying and just time in general for things to become more clear, but it does happen.

You have a lot of positives...I see a lot of positives in what you wrote! Yeah for the positive streak in your eating! That's fantabulous!!! emoticon There is a lot of "seeking" and openness to learning and thinking which is NOT depression! Now the anxiety, that's another thing. I never used to have classic "anxiety," but boy in the last year I have and man, does it ever stink! Sorry to hear it's happening for you. For me, it was a huge difference from the shut down of depression and I didn't and don't like it at all!

Interesting, too, that music is a theme, here. In fall every year for quite a few years, now, I start listening to the Messiah in my car and crank it up when I'm alone. I'm guessing I look pretty silly, driving along, belting out whatever part I feel led to sing and directing as I go. I've probably been through the whole thing 20 times this year by now, and no, I haven't hit anyone yet! Beautiful music is so healing, as is the message.

Again, great to hear from you!
Many hugs and prayers, my friend!
Kayla

    Dee,

Dealing with depression is never an easy thing. We all have our good days and bad days. We can't totally eliminate the bad days, but hopefully our good days will outnumber our bad ones. We're all trying to get by as best we can. Take things day by day.

Also, some of your depression today may have been a result of a hormonal fluctuation. If you're nearing your menstrual cycle, those hormones may be the cause of your mood swing. I know I've had my emotional ups and downs since being laid off. On days I feel down, I do check the calendar because my down days do seem to coincide with my cycle.

Try to stay positive and accentuate the positive things that ARE working in your life.

    I HATE that free-floating anxiety. And being stuck in a very negative atmosphere just makes it ten times worse. It's like it starts out rolling and gets big like a snowball rolling down hill until there is that emotional spin out that breaks it all up till the next time. When it happens now and I feel it coming on, I just go ahead and take a xanax and get out in front of it.

We were having an impromptu concert today as well! We cleaned out under our stair well where we keep the Christmas decorations. While we were doing that we put all the Petra and Phil Driscoll albums -- yeah, the actual vinyl albums -- on and rocked out! At the top of our lungs! I'm sure our neighbor behind us -- Steve, who was out in his garage -- wondered what all that catterwalling had to do with praising God! Didn't help that we were singing: "This means war - and the battle's still raging! War - and though both sides are waging the Victor is sure and the victory secure but till judgment we all must endure! This means war!" LOLOLOL

I'm sure Steve thinks we're subversives or something! emoticon Just TRY to feel anxious when you're singing THAT SONG! emoticon

Good to see you back on here again. Hope you stick around a little while. Have missed you.

    We were created in God's image, so think about what God is like. Isn't He worthy to be loved? He made YOU that way too. Furthermore, because God IS love, He made us to be the objects of His love. Blows me away to think about it, but YEAH - He REALLY loves us. ANd His desire is just to have that love relationship. The quality of His love is not based on our merit but on His character. That's a big relief! I pray God will give you a deeper revelation of His character and who you are in Christ! Blessiings on the journey to health! Shel

OA, depression, and jealousy

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Wow. Itís been forever since Iíve blogged. And I donít know how far Iíll get because my back is killing me. If it feels like this now, what will it feel like when I get old? Ugh!

I joined OA first of October through www.therecoverygroup.org . I went through the orientation which is a month long. I canít say Iím making a lot of progress just yet, but Iím getting the foundation laid.

Itíll probably be a lot longer road for me than it is for many others because Iíve been SO depressed recently and it seems to be getting worse. So often I feel like crying and for no reason. *sigh*. Iím sure now that weíre heading into the holidays and I basically have no money, the depression is not going to get better anytime soon.

Which I guess brings me to my next issue. And I feel like such a terrible person for this. Itís my issue and my issue alone, but Ö.. My husband goes to medical professionals at the drop of a hat. If he gets a hangnail, Iím sure heíll make an appointment. Now he does have some serious health concerns Ė diabetes and major depression, but even over and above those, if he can find a reason to add yet another doctor, therapist, etc., he will. Now as for myself; I often would like to seek medical assistance for something. Right now it would be this very painful back and the depression that Iím experiencing. But instead of picking up the phone, I take a look at the bank accounts and decide that we donít have the money or enough left on any credit cards for me to make another bill. I find myself always saving whatever money we have to spend on his doctor bills and medications. That being said; I find myself feeling jealous and then feeling very bad for feeling that way. Yes Iím a crazy person! Iíd have the diagnosis too if Iíd ever go to the doctor, lol.

This morning when I thought about blogging, I had lots to say, but now I can Ďt seem to remember any of itÖ so I guess Iíll call it a day.

    Gosh, it sounds like you're going through a lot, but I echo what everyone else said and especially ARCHIMEDESII! We're trained from birth that our needs are not as important as someone else's, while men are trainer that their needs are their #1 priority. Obviously, this isn't 100% true, people are different, and even in my own family it gets cockeyed, but it sounds like it is true in your marriage.

I always put my needs/wants/desires last, my oldest-younger brother always puts his first and it has caused a LOT of conflict between us. My youngest-younger brother somehow learned to put his own needs last as well and he's MUCH less happy and fulfilled than my oldest-younger brother. I'm learning to put my needs first, and it's making me a better partner to my wonderful boyfriend, AND a better sister/daughter/all-around-person.<
BR>
You are your own #1! You're the only you you've got!

Keep fighting that depression, I think thebloggess.com has a lot of helpful advise about that and the #1 thing is that depression LIES. It is stupid chemicals in your brain effing with you for the pure joy of doing so. Don't let depression win because it WILL fade, it CAN be controlled, and you ARE worthy of coming out the other side! :-)

Have a great weekend and CALL YOUR DOCTOR RIGHT NOW!!! :-)

Echoing what everyone else has said, please make sure you get the medical attention you need, even if that means having an uncomfortable discussion with your husband about finances so that you can visit a doctor as well.

Also, be sure you are getting enough magnesium. Magnesium may help ease symptoms of anxiety and depression. Speaking from personal experience, this has made a huge difference for me! You can get magnesium from food sources such as almonds, whole grains, and green leafy vegetables, as well as supplements.

Finally, it's funny someone mentioned the safety demo on the plane. In flight attendant training, one of the first things we were taught was "Consider your own needs first." If you are incapacitated, you cannot care for others. That's not selfish, it's common sense.

Take care of yourself and be well!

    Hi Dee, I've been wondering too, if things had gotten so bad, it was hard to reach out. I know the feeling well and it's awful. But you are doing it...which is HUGE! Ya, know, there is something to be said for the spiel you get on the plane before take off. You know the one, "in case of loss of cabin pressure, put the mask on yourself first." It makes sense when you think about it, but gees, it's hard to do in real life. You are such a dear person and so deserve to take care of yourself! His hang nail can wait this month...you do what you need to do. You are important, too. We all love you here and I know, I for one have had you in my prayers many times. You can do this, girlfriend. emoticon Kayla

Dee, it's not you ! Women have been taught for years that they should "sacrifice" their health, their emotions and their well being for their husband, their children and their parents. It's what a good wife, daughter or mother would do.

Well, at some point, we really do have to be a little bit selfish. Because if we don't take care of ourselves, we won't be there for anyone else. That's the catch 22. I think you should take a cue from your husband and go to the doctor. If there is money for him to take care of his hang nail, there's money for you to deal with your depression. Get an appointment and talk to your doctor. Take those first steps the same way you're working with OA. build the foundation to rebuild your health.

Oh Dee, I know how tough it is. You are doing really well to start with OA to take some steps to care for you. You are worth it to go get help. I get it. I bet you wish someone could help you with your burdens - DH, to think of the family (you) instead of his own focus in times of trouble, someone to put you in the equation. And I've found that feeling my whole life too (in fact I'm probably projecting like mad here), but for me, one of my main things to combat depression is learning that I need to feel like my own priority. I bet that's what felt so good to you the first time round at Calorie King, you were putting your needs in the spotlight to loose the weight.

Good for you for reaching out. I know that the last thing that feels like a desire in depression is to come out of your shell, cave, crying pillow and interact. The energy feels drained, but you did it anyway!

Thinking of you today.

Till death do us part is a long timeÖ or is it?

Saturday, June 23, 2012

Itís been 32 Ĺ years since we made those vows. On days like today, Iím not so sure Iím willing to let him make it to 33. Okay, not really, but Iím am thoroughly disgusted with him today.

We bought a second rental house around the first of the month. I REALLY didnít want to have to help renovate it, AND heíd not ask for my help. He talked as if everything was going well. Then about a week ago, I dropped by to take a look. OMG! He had been rushing through and doing a terrible job on the painting. He had patched holes where a bunch of pictures had been hung, but then painted over it without sanding well. GrrrÖ.

He also wasted too much time trying to figure out how to save the woodwork (and not paint it). It really wasnít fancy enough, and some of it just wasnít in good enough condition.

Anyway, I decided that I will HAVE to go and at least help with the painting. So today, I head over, and a closer look just about puts me in tears (well, it DID actually). He has just been doing things haphazardly with no organization or plan.

I guess I really have to blame myself to some extent, because as I reflected on it (during my pity party), I remembered that in the 32 plus years that Iíve known him, heís NEVER been detail oriented. In the house we live in, every major project heís done has been left unfinished because when it gets down to the details, he tends to stop and start another project. How stupid could I be to forget such a thing? I mean all I have to do is take a look around my house, lol.

I'm feeling a little better, so I guess Iíll just pick up the pieces best I can and move on.

Vent over.

Almost one year to the day from when we started renovating to getting the tenant in. and that was with mostly contractors. can't imagine doing it all sweat equity and with jobs to boot.

    Dee, we just celebrated our 37th anniversary. There have been lots of times, when I didn't think I could make it to the next anniversary. There have been many times when I weighed whether it would be better to be in jail for murder than to be married. Still, despite my husband's flaws, there is something absolutely wonderful about knowing that he is there for you in your better and worse, just as you have been there for him through his worsts. After 32 1/2 years, he knows everything about you - and still knowing that, he loves you, accepts you and is there for you -well, for me, that is worth all of the incredible irritations. He knows me and loves me anyway. He knows me and he is still there for me. (Of course, I do think he got the better end of the deal... ha ha!) It's like that old saying: " My husband married above himself. Of course, all men do." emoticon

A new doc & more

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Iíve wanted to establish myself with a Ďrealí doctor for some time now. Around here, it seems like all you usually get to see are nurse practitioners or PAís. Nothing against them, it just feels good to actually see a doctor sometimes. Anyway, thanks to someone kind enough to give me a referral, I found one.

Three were a lot of things I liked on her web site, but at the same time, there were little hints here and there that said she might be a little pushier than Iíd prefer. I have to admit, I kind of had myself worked up anticipating the appointment.

However, it went VERY well. She had actually read the new patient info that I had completed (all 10-12 or so pages, which were very detailed). She is very thorough, genuine, and really likes what she does.

Thatís the good news. The not so good news is she thinks my thyroid is a little low (per the endocrinology scale). We discussed it thoroughly and whether or not I should try Thyroid hormone. I decided to do what she suggested and give it a try for about 3 weeks to see if I can tell a difference in my energy level, etc.

Sometimes I frustrate myself with my aversion to medicine. I did mention it to her and told her I didnít know why. However, AFTER I left, I remembered Ė duh! I DO know why; I just donít really know how to get past it. I can attribute it to my mom and step-dad. He was addicted to Darvon. I watched my mom, more than once, call a doctorís office (he had prescriptions from several), and lie about what mishap had occurred causing him to need it refilled early. And then there was my mom. She was a hypochondriac; you could tell her that a friend of a friend of a friend was ill and had such and such symptoms; within a couple days SHE would have those same symptoms. She would look through a drug book and determine what meds she thought she needed to take. Then sheíd come home from a doctorís appointment all upset because they didnít prescribe the same drugs she was convinced she needed.

I found all of this so disturbing that until I had kids and couldnít take a nap for a headache, I wouldnít even take an aspirin. So, bottom line is I pretty much know why I feel the way I do; I just donít know how to get past it. Oh well.

----------

Then thereís work. Apparently weíve lost another person in our department and, of course, sheís not being replaced. So my work load is getting heavier again. I already have not been taking breaks and struggle to get my work done. Not to mention that I have lots to do to get ready for my new position in the new building. Between the work load and all the negativity (we have a couple that like to keep the pot stirred, but because of the friendship one of them has with a higher-up, nothing will change), work is very stressful right now. Iím sure the stress isnít doing my hormones any good. Oh well.

------------

All in all, I seem to be doing okay with staying within my calorie range most days. Iím trying to get in more exercise, and am supposed to be walking the Steamboat Classic next Saturday, but I have to confessÖ activity is very hard for me right now. I just donít seem to have any energy to get up and move. They say exercise increases your energy, but finding the energy to exercise in the first place is a toughie.


Enough rambling for one dayÖ.

    It's good that you found a good Doctor and you are trying to realize why you do some things you do. Your on the right path and headed in the right direction. Stay positive and things will work out for you. (((Hugs)))

    We always see the Dr. We've been seeing him for a few yrs. It's great not having to explain to someone different each time we see him what's going on.

    If you find the secret to finding enough energy to exercise, please let me know where to go to buy it! Sigh... I'm so glad you found a doc. That's absolutely right what you said. PA's are mostly what we see, and though I love the ones we go to, it's not the same as a real doc. You got very lucky. They are few and far between these days. As to work: Duck! Quick! Sounds like one of those situations! Hugs, Calen~

    Way to go, hanging in there to finally get to see a doctor! And a good one to boot!
You can tell the doctors that care. And the thorough ones are fantastic!

I've noticed the more upbeat I am, and taking an active role in my own health, inspires my doctors too.

The medicine attitude, AW HA moment!! I've had them. Way to be open enough to self discovery!

Take care of your self Sunshine and have a great Day!
