|Anti-Abortion Whackjob:||Would you like a pamphlet about how abortions are a sin?|
|Me:||No, I would not. Thank you.|
|Anti-Abortion Whackjob:||Are you ready to meet Jesus?|
|Me:||Oh I am so ready to meet Jesus, but I'm not sure if Jesus is ready to meet you!|
Catty doctor’s office receptionists are the worst. You are the first person a patient sees when coming to see that doctor. Please try to be positive and don’t talk rudely about patients even when the glass sliding doors are closed. We can still hear you!
But pharmacists who manage to override the system to make a medication go through insurance, that would otherwise cost $700, are awesome.
Though the would be $700 medication is another immune suppressant, just in time for cold and flu season. Oh well, it could be worse.
While muscle retraining therapy has hurt so bad, the reward is getting covered with bags of ice when I’m done. Surprisingly, that feels so good.
If I keep making progress like I am (like working insanely hard), I won’t have to have surgery and it’s an impairment I’ll just learn to live with. Cross that off the surgery list please!
Oh and my physical therapist says that maybe one day, if we can stop my heart from going over 170 bpm, I can learn to run again. That’s going to take a lot of medication for this tachycardia prone lady.
P.S.- Lupus, please stop killing nerves.
P.S.S.- My wicked Grandmother just called. Why? Why? Why?
Oh hey lupus, thanks for killing some nerve endings in my legs during my last flare. It totally explains the leg muscle weakness. Now I get to do more intensive physical therapy to retrain my muscles in my legs to work properly again. My brain, nerves, and muscles aren’t all connected properly and it’s created a hot mess.
On top of all of that, I have bursitis in my hips. And I can’t do cortisone shots because my white blood cell count is too low.
What will lupus attack next?
At least I have a cute doggy.
