Managed to get an appt at primary today and feel somewhat more positive about recent events. MRI will definitely happen tomorrow(has been doubled checked). Hope to hear back Friday.
Primary care is already putting in a referral request for a urologist, since I am told this is the next step, and a therapist to help me with my stress and depression over all these new health issues. I have been up and down all over the place and even though a resolution may be in sight, It is beginning to affect my choices regarding my diet etc. I don't want to undo all the hard work I have put into getting my D organized and on track. A little bit of good news, the weight is finally starting to come down. Another # off today. Baby steps, but I'll take what I can get.

Baby steps are the best way. When things happen too fast or too big, they often don't last. Keep those baby steps going.

I'm glad to hear that you got some resolution to the MRI and that you are going to be seeing someone to talk to about the new stress that is going on. I'm a big fan of having someone to talk to about our stresses. Congrats on getting and keeping the weight off. Keep us posted.

Glad you got your appointment for the MRI and other physicians. BTW - Baby steps are great. Just keep them coming.

Since being diagnosed as a T2, my outlook has changed from "if I don't know anything is wrong, then I must be OK" to "if I don't know what is broke, I can't fix it." Even though I really don't want to know what is broke, I just take a deep breath and look ahead to fixing it. I'm praying you won't find too much that is "broke," but if you do we are all here to help you through the "fix." Praying for you.

Just hoping that once this kidney issue is addressed, my function will improve. So far I can trace this back to surgery last Aug and a uti that I had when I was hospitalized. I complained of back pain at the time, but the fluids and drugs kind of masked the true cause. I honestly thought it was muscle pain caused from spending so much time in that darned bed. It was never very intense…just nagging. Hindsight is always 20/20. Plus we were all more concerned with the 8 inch hole in my gut.

I'm glad the MRI will happen tomorrow and that you are feeling more positive. Our emotions are important to our overall health. Congrats on the weight loss and getting your D under control. One step at a time, right? I hope you will have the MRI results by Friday and that the news will be encouraging.
