I have many medical problems, as I am sure, so many of you do as well. It is very hard sometimes, when you look up treatments for some problems, only to find out that you cannot use it due to the fact you have this "other problem". My list is becoming so long, I finally wrote is up, along with a writeup on all surgeries, all x-rays/mri's etc, and a spreadsheet on all my doctors. The doctors I go to look at these papers and tell me, gee you are really prepared. I know I must look like deer in the headlights as the fibro fog takes over and I just stare at them. If it wasn't for these papers, I would not remember half of what I have been treated for. At times, I feel so burned out as my husband is the picture-well most of the time, of health and really doesn't understand pain 24/7, no refined carbs, no plastic in microwave etc. Every one I listed has to do with a specific problem I have. My job depends on my ability to think, thank God, I learned what I need to do, long enough ago, that the Fibro fog does not seem to touch it yet. At least so far. I am just having trouble sometimes trying to cope…as my laudry list gets longer. I have been sick since July-coughing 24/7, and after finally giving up and taking the cortisone to help heal, my diabetes was so high the meter could not read it. It seems when they try to fix one thing, it is always at the expense of another. Bummer.
