Monday Funday

It’s been a hell of a week and a half! I’ve been dealing with Hurricane Florence since last Monday. Thankfully, both myself and my family are safe and haven’t suffered any property damage. I had to cancel all my ‘me time’ appointments due to the storm. This week I’m bombarded with doctor appointments.

Tomorrow, I go see my Dermatologist at Duke to see if they can do anything about the rash that’s developed on my forearms. After that, I go to the Urologist to get put on another ‘post coital prophylactic’ so I don’t have to deal with UTIs again. Wednesday, I have my Neurology appointment so HOPEFULLY this new doctor will do something about my tremors and cognitive issues. Thursday, I go see a new Psychiatrist which I’m apprehensive about, but I know that I need to get my PTSD in check.

I’m waiting for the second Rheumatologist referral to contact me. This guy is one I researched and picked; he specializes in both Rheumatology and Immunology. I don’t see that he treats MCTD (because no one really does) but he treats lupus and a lot of my symptoms. Fingers crossed that he’ll be a good doc.

I’ll update after my appointments this week
