I'm so glad you are pushing yourself to do this. I have similar feelings and am always amazed (when it is over), how well it went. No one has ever called me a faker, or told me I was stupid for waiting sooo long, they have always been kind and helpful. You aren't the only one to have these feelings and they probably understand that. Hope you get your health in control and feel better soon.

So, thank you all--------

I am armed with some drugs to help the symptoms. O n eot help the vertigo that is either stand alone or perhaps caused by the sinus infection I probably have. Vertigo is just the oddest and most unsettling thing. No driving for a day or two.

The chest x ray was ordered and will be reviewed that might mean steroids and antibiotics.

She can prescribe for headaches as I need......... sleeoing as I need.

the NP didn't seem to the the very best but she was not judgemental and was reassuring.

I have another appointment scheduled and stuff to do...blood work and mammogram. (She intuitively stated that my stress would diminish after mammo seeing as the it has only been 14 months since my mom was diagnosed.)

Mostly, it is over. I can hopw to feel a little beeter right away and lots better as we move forward.

Lots of other things to do but thanks you all. taking care of me is the VERY hardest.

Thanks people.
