Be kind to yourself, you’re doing the best you can ๐Ÿ’™

For those of you that regularly follow along, yesterday I had a follow-up appointment with my PCP to go over lab results that I’ve been trying to get an explanation of all year (they are from a different Dr). This is an appointment I’ve had to reschedule several times as I’ve not been well enough to go, so I was proud of myself for going at all. She had told me she would have an e-consult to discuss them with another doctor and then I should come back in and we’d go over what the e-consultant told her. Unfortunately, for whatever reason she too would not provide me with any direction on the labs and instead is referring me out to five different types of specialists. The thought of going to all those appointments, explaining everything all over again, it all feels overwhelming. I’m either in the worst flare I’ve ever been in or I’m really not doing well so to add things that need to be done, appointments where doctors are unfamiliar, sigh. Two of the specialists I’ve already seen and honestly I wasn’t crazy about either of them, but my insurance is very limited in available specialists. So today, I’m resting my mind, my body and my soul, but still honoring my goal of posting on Tuesdays. These blog posts absolutely wipe me out so short and sweet today. Here are a few more of my little paintings from the past week. Hoping that today has been kind to you and if it hasn’t, hoping tomorrow brings you a brighter day.๐ŸŒธ

    How frustrating to even imagine the energy to participate in five different appointments, let alone with new providers. SO sorry this is happening right now. Hoping you can get some real answers and possible help with your illness. Sending you healing energy and positive thoughts and prayers. Beautiful pics as usual! You are very talented and encourage me with your art!

  2. Just catching up on this now… so sorry to hear this. That’s the last thing you needed to hear. One specialist is bad enough but five is just horrendous. Constantly having to explain this illness is draining and exhausting. Sorry you’re having such a rubbish time with it all. Beautiful paintings and wishing you some brighter days ahead xx

    1. Thank you, Emma๐ŸŒธ Unless youโ€™ve been there itโ€™s hard to understand that explaining yourself five times over to doctors who donโ€™t really have much knowledge on the illness feels overwhelming at best. Hopefully one of them can help, even if only a bit. Hoping you are best as can be for you.๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. I have been facing my own struggles with new healthcare providers and their attitudes, all the while when I feel like my health is declining. So I fully understanding how you feel. Rest up – tomorrow is another day. A fresh start to even an old battle can sometimes feel better than dragging on the same fight. I wish the very best for you. โค
