I BRUISE THEREFORE I AM

Thank you so much for your kind replies on my previous post, I hope I answered all your comments.

I had the doctor appointment today, and Mum came with me as usual..
It was the same doctor Barbara as Tuesday
(In the end of this post I will explain the doctor situation we have right now)

She asked how I had been since Tuesday and the funny thing was; Tuesday and Wednesday I had no “attacks”, and yesterday I had 2 forestages to an “attack”, like prickling in my neck and left arm, but it stopped at that.
So I told her that..
We talked about the blood tests, what she was looking at; kidney, liver, all vitamins, red and white blood cells, blood platelets, water levels and haemoglobin. And everything was fine..
She then asked about the ”attacks” in detail and I told her how I felt it and how I was during them. I am normal, can think and talk, just can’t move for the 10-15 seconds it takes.
Then she made a series of Neurological tests like, follow my finger, cross your eyes, move your tongue, stand with your eyes closed and touch your nose….I aced all of it;)
They she tested my blood sugar as it was the one thing that was not in the blood tests, perfectly fine…so the conclusion was:
She think it can be a panic attack, and said to see a few weeks ahead, and if not her best shot is to send me to a Neurologist.
So I got an appointment with my regular doctor that knows me in two weeks, and then I will write down if I get an ”attack”.(If something gets bad in the meantime, I can just come back)
I think she did the best she could and I am ok with that..

So the things about our doctors.
The past 25 years Mum, Dad and I have had the same consultation with two doctors Esbjørn and Kristiansen. Mum had Esbjørn and his wife was her diabetic nurse, and Dad and I had Kristiansen.
They have been there for us through sickness and health, depressions, Mum and Dads problems with my siblings, my cancer, Mums diabetes and Dads sickness and death.
So last fall Esbjørn got kidney cancer and had to stop work. His wife stopped too, to look after him. He send Mum and me a sweet card around Christmas, telling us thanks for our concern and that the Chemo worked well…but he died in January..
So the clinic got two new doctors to help out with all the patients, Esbjørns daughter Anne that will take his place later and Barbara, that is a temp. for now.
They also got a new nurse, the one that pricked me nine times. She is really sweet and kind and will be Mums diabetic nurse. We will see her Monday as Mum has an appointment.

I hope this all make sense even if I don’t have any pictures;)



♥Love you all♥

Oh, sweetie!
I'm glad that your new doctor thinks it's nothing major because a panic attack is something you can work with, right? If the attack would be something from the meds you had to take it would be worse... just thinking.

Maybe everything is too much right now?
I hear a lot about your little girls come around to visit you and I'm glad that they do but maybe you need a little more time for yourself? To feel better?

I have no clue. Sorry if I'm wrong :(

But I hope you have a good weekend with no attacks!

I do wear myself out when I am with them, but usual I get to rest for some days after and thats fine..I haven´t seen them for weeks now, spoken with Sarah on the phone though. She turns 12 on March 14th, so she invited me to her birthday Sunday 18th..so we have talked presents and secrets;)

Oh honey I hope your doctor be right and this is panic attack and nothing worse... You really deserve a pause hon.. Dear, you wouldn't be pushing yourself so hard and maybe this "attacks" is a reaction from your body about stress or anything else? Try relax sweetie... I don't know, I can be being stupid? **smile embarrased**

And I'm so sorry for your doctor and his family... My condolences for them..

Brazilian hugs..

Ohh Polly, thank you for your kind words..
And you are NOT stupid, never and never..you can be so right, I have been sick and stressed the past month and still tried to do everything, so it might be my body shutting down..

Thank you so much, Mum and I got a kind letter from his wife yesterday, thanking us for our concern, that was really touching.

♥Love you hon♥

I'm glad to know that everything is fine and that they'll keep an eye on you. Because the attacks still come from somewhere, right? I really hope they'll stop tough -_-
*HUGS YOU TIGHT*
I'm sorry about your doctor. I do have a wonderful doctor myself^^

You are so right Sweetie, they do come from somewhere..I´ve been thinking, if it is panic attacks, I´ve been trying to hard doing all the everyday things, while being sick and running a fever. Maybe my body just shuts down this way??
♥Hugs and love you♥
Mum has been assigned my Doctor Kristiansen now, as he know me and knew Dad and knows her too.. A doctor you trust is one of the most important things I think.

It's my default for this month. I had another one, but then I heard about a gay boy who is an author here on LJ being bashed and badly hurt, and thought that's the least I can do to show some support...

I´ve heard about him too. I don´t know him, but I have joined a support comm for him, not sure what I can do, but want to do something....
