No Virus, New appointment at Mayo Clinic, & Stress Sundae
I almost didn't blog tonight when I got home...My heart is sad and I have been confused and upset and everything in between...I saw my new doctor Thursday! He was good and I really like him... here's the run down... HE feels I don't have any other autoimmune diseases (besides lichen planus) and all the millions of doctors I have seen previous to now have basically ran the same few tests...( no wonder we weren't getting any answers) I have been brushed off a lot! So he thinks I could have something called autonomic nervous system disorder or POTS... I will have the test next Friday and have a consult with a neurologist next month. THEN go back to rheumatology and go from there... I was super nervous/scared of all this new unexpected info. Yet, grateful ... after Mayo WE went to lunch then straight to physical therapy...after that I demanded we go to sweaty peas (frozen yogurt) it is self served and delicious!! I call it my stress sundae! It made me feel better! tonight I won't lie I got home and got on the internet and looked all this up and panicked and had a little large meltdown but my momma made me feel better and looked up everything and she doesn't think I have it... now that the panic has subsided I agree there are a lot of things that don't fit. Yet, we can see where the doctor was coming from the test does make sense and will be a good rule out if it is negative ( we hope for negative! I do not want this!) I am very upset and my nerves are on high...I hate being jittery! but the lord is near and I can endure any hardship with faith and I can have healing...prayers, faith, & patience. It is in gods hands and he has a plan for me whether I agree or not at times I just have to trust in him that it will be for the betterness of me.
P.S. WE GOT INTO MESA JUST IN TIME TO HAVE A HALF HOUR BEFORE BEST BUY CLOSED... GEEK SQUAD WAS VERY NICE & HELPFUL TO THIS GIRL WHO KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT COMPUTERS ***NO VIRUS JUST OPERATOR ERROR*** PHEW!
