I think I am doing the right thing by telling doctor's the way I am feeling but obviously that isnt the best way to be. Especially when I dont see the same doctor every time and I hardly ever see the psychiatrist who had been seeing me for years before he joined this new huge practice. I see him maybe 3 times a year now. I think I am going to have to insist on making my appointments so I can see him and no one else. Sigh. Lately I have been having this issue with being extremely tired maybe 3 days out the week but I fall asleep fairly early in the evening but wake up around 1 or 2 may 3 am and then fall back asleep around 7 or so and am just so incredibly tired I cant keep my eyes opened until about 3 pm. Its awful. I think it has something to do with my fibro because I am also having awful pain in the trigger areas like on the outside of my arms and all around my upper chest and some spots on my back. This is almost a sure sign that my fibro is hitting me. I asked the doctor if there was anything I could take on the days when I just couldnt stay awake because it wasnt every day and there was simply no way I could function on the days when it did happen. Oh lord that was a mistake. She started in on how everything I take was a downer so naturally I was sleepy and would just be sitting there practically comatose. Im not! I dont sit in one spot drooling. She has no idea what Im like. Heck she sees me for less than 10 minutes 1 time a month. So she takes me off of my pill that helps me sleep and notice I was up at midnight tonight. I fell asleep at 10:30 and woke up just after midnight. Its 6 am. Oh goodie. She also told me to set my alarm for 7 and then get up every day, take a shower, get in the car and go out and do activities. Go shopping, walk around the mall, go walk the dog for an hour or so around the block, come home and completely clean the house from top to bottom, never sit down on the couch, dont take any naps. Dont turn on the TV during the day. If I could do all that I wouldnt be on disability and I would be working. This woman didnt even know I had severe joint disease or disc disease. She had no clue that I couldnt stand up for more than 20 minutes at a time. So then she asked me well if you cant stand up for more than that then stand for 20 then sit for 20 and then get up again for 20 and keep doing that. Oh please! She has got to be kidding me. Like I said, if I could do that I would still be working. I was doing that while working! Then she told me to go get a gastric bypass. She must know something I dont know because I have read the requirements to get approved for that and you have to go through a ton of procedures to get it approved and if your doctors dont document everything exactly right, you get turned down. I doubt my doctors would be that accurate. They havent shown they can be accurate enough to get my lab results to me. Or set up referrals to specialists. Do I really think they can keep accurate notes in the format Medicare expects for approving this surgery? No. And I cant change doctors because I am locked in. Lovely little thing. I am certainly not telling Tony that this doctor says I can do all this because he will just think I am now faking it. By the time I got home last night I could hardly walk. I was so tired yesterday morning I didnt take my morning medications before driving all the way up to her office which is about 40 minutes away. After that appointment I had to get something to eat because I was starving then I had to go to Toysrus and pick up layaways that Cory and I had in there. Oh my heavens I will never do that again. They lost stuff on both our layaways. I sat there for over two hours while they attempted to find them and finally I told them to just stop, I would cancel that part out at the front return desk and buy another one of the same thing from out on the floor. When I got up to the return desk and was looking in my containers because I was going to take back to items, I noticed that I was missing 3 things in addition to two of the things I was going to take back! I have no idea how they could be so disorganized. I have never had that problem with Walmart or Kmart. Wont be shopping at toysrus next year.
