I finally got my regular doctor to do the referral to the endocrinologist. her nurse is a witch, lazy, and treats me like a nuisance. So the referral was delayed by over 2 weeks, because the nurse didn't want to "bother" (I was told this, and have told the doctor this.) The problem is a severe Vit D deficiency, I have had it for over 2 years. ANY kind of vit. D makes me very ill - sunlight, oral supplement, food. The reg doctor can't get the injectable because no one else needs it and they have to order a whole box. So, on the directions of the nurse, I called the endocrinologist. He is supposed to be very good - mom saw him and liked him. he can't see me until the end of Sept. I HATE HATE HATE HATE knowing there might be a fairly simple fix (a shot) to this, but I have no access to it for over 2 months. Life stinks here. It HURTS to move. I try, I keep up with what I can, put kids first, but I am so at the mercy of this. In so much pain. It is very depressing and even with an increase in my prozac I am not doing well. husband won't discuss it, but he is doing everything he can around here. I am just not functioning at all. Thanks for listening to me.
