NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT

It feels like ages since I´ve posted some private stuff, so here you go.
The pain from the cancer treatment has been getting worse over the past year, coming to a place where I sometimes wanted to gnaw off my limbs to make the pain disappear.
When people first asked how bad the pain was, I told them that it was like having a toothache all over my body –(and that was WHEN I´ve gotten my medication 4 times a day,)
Now the pain is getting so much worse and the meds I get is not enough anymore.

Therefore, I went to the doctor this Tuesday, to see if she could come up with answers to all my questions.
I had made a list of all the things that I wanted to talk about, but it turned out she was more than 20 minutes late when I went in – when I said I had a list of things, she was: I am way behind, so you have so let us get to the most important now, and then we can make appointments for later..
I was not pleased but the most important thing for me now was ”the constant/ not ever getting better pain” that I´ve have had for the 7 years.
I got some new stronger meds that I have to take for two weeks and then come back to see her.
I tried to get an appointment with a “cancer side effects specialist”, but she said there wasn´t anyone to talk to.
Then she gave me new prescriptions, an appointment at the hospital, and told me to come back in two weeks.
Tomorrow I`ll go to the hospital to get a bunch of blood tests; Doc wants to see if there are other reasons for the pain than the side effects: Like arthritis – from the stiffness in my joints, bad blood cells – from the black marks and soars I get and a bunch of other things.
So that is that for now.

Mum got a call yesterday from our friend Mona, which runs Knitting Club every Thursday.
Mona told Mum that next Tuesday Knitting Club was having a Tupperware party.
The present that the hostess will get, they will donate us to sell on Pink Saturday…
Those Ladies in our Knitting Club are so amazing.
They knit and crochet, make pearl stuff, dolls clothes and cards.
We are so lucky that we got the company premises for Pink Saturday.

Not much here I know, but better than nothing ;)

I hope your new medication helps or they find a reason for the pain. Then maybe they can help you! Just make sure your doctor answers all your questions next time, I do understand where she's coming from, but still. She needs to help you as well.

Yay, the Knitting Club ladies are awesome!! So nice of them to make things for Pink Saturday.

Hey Darling, thank you.
I´ll be sure to make a new list and not leave before I have my answers.
If she is behind, it is not my fault.

Those Ladies are so sweet and caring, they know us and care and want to help us, I am so grateful for them.

Thank you Honey ♥
It is, but I was warned before treatment, but anyway, you never know pain before you feel it... ;(
I´ll be sure to let you know as soon as I know anything.
Thank you for being such a sweet friend.

Bless you, honey. I'm hoping they can find a reason for the pain and a way to address/stop it. Gods. How frustrating!!

Always keeping my fingers crossed for you, honey.

It's so good to see you here, sweetie *hugs*

I'm not very happy with your doc, I was hoping for better news. As in for her to take better care of you and listen to what you have to say. I'll keep my fingers crossed for that to happen at your next appointment.
Don't let her brush you off next time because she's late. If she's late, that just means she took extra time for someone else, why can't she take that time for you, especially when you have an appointment? *hugs* You are important.

Good luck with the blood tests. You'll only get the results with your doc or will the hospital tell you something already?

The knitting ladies are great :) Will they come stop by? I think I met one of them already, right?

Thank you darling, I´ll be sure to post more here.

I´m not eiter, but I´ll make a new list, bring Mum, and be sure I´ll get my answers before I leave on June 2.

I´ll get the result of the tests and blood work, when I see her again.

They are great Ladies. Maybe if you are here on the Tuesday we can go to Knitting Club, just to say hi ;)
You met Lilian and Esther last year, they came and bought bookmarks, earrings and gave a donation.

♥Love you♥

Yay *snuggles* :)

That's a good plan :) Just one more week, then *hugs*

Oh, yes, we could. The candle light thing, was that Mondays or Wednesdays? Is it again this year?
Ah, yes, see, I know I met some knitting ladies :)

Love you too, darling!

Oh no, that sounds awful! I hope the meds work better, and that you get another appointment with your doc. Sit on her table until that list is finished! :-) *hugs*
