Re: LYMESGAL***Are you still here????
Hi there Mesmall! Just read your post.
Yeeeeeeesssssss, I'm still doing the diet sodas, but not as much as I use to! I know they are bad for me but it's SO hard to quit. I get these horrible headaches if I don't get some caffeine!
It's so nice to hear that you are feeling alot better. Hey, maybe we will run into each other at Dr. D.'s! Wouldn't that be funny?! Last time I was there I met a lady who I started talking to and we exchanged emails and keep in touch. The stories you hear while your waiting in his office. Ever get into a group discussion there?
I have not taken any Diflucan. I have had some problems with the yeast infections but they seem to only last a day or so. I am taking Acidopholus (sp?) and I think that helps alot. I am taking it twice a day and it's got to be working cause you would think with all the abx we are taking it would be natural to have the infections. Wonder why the doctors, maybe just the male doctors, don't think of that?! I guess they just figure we'll call our reg. doctor and get the meds.
I go back for my full physical with that new doctor--and she is from Fall River by the way--next week. So, maybe then I'll hear what she really thinks of my whole situation since she ignored me before. YES, I do need a new doctor! I am totally planning on changing but I just need to follow up with the blood test that I've already taken. Plus, she is going to put me on a blood pressure medication (mine is too high--never was before til all this) and also she is putting me on something for my thyroid (also a new problem). I guess my numbers are too low. After I get all that squared away then I will find a new doctor. I guess alot of it depends on how she treats me next week. I hate to switch in the middle of all this but I do need a doctor that I feel comfortable with. Can you mention the doctor in Wareham's name or is that not a good idea? I would love to go to a primary who has worked with Dr. D. And Wareham is about 10 min. away from my house. Now, I'm driving almost an hr. The reason I started there is because she is an Infectious Disease doctor that I went and saw while waiting on Dr. D's appt. I just took her as a primary for now cause my other doctor ended her private practice and I just needed a doctor.
Things are going better here at the homefront. Thank goodness. Or for now anyways, that's all I can hope for right now. I am feeling better than I was. Stress plays such a big part, I know.
I hope you are having a good day today, hope you're feeling GOOD!!
