I was suspect of my illness before…but ever since my diagnosis a few days ago I just feel a whole new level of overwhelmed. None of this feels real.
I feel like it is a constant battle with my family doctor, the insurance companies (trying to PROVE that I am unable to work), filling prescriptions and having a million questions asked…books to read…diet to follow…prescription antibiotics to take….and money…let’s not even talk about how much money this has all cost….it just all feels like too much.
Before I can even start my treatment plan I had to have my prescriptions rewritten in Canada (convincing my family doc to do so was NOT easy). BUT, he ended up doing it. Now I have to wait to have the prescriptions filled since they don’t keep these quantities on hand. Not looking forward to seeing the bill for this….5 prescriptions for 90 days….TO START.
Anyways….I am moving forward and I know one day this will all be worth it and I won’t have to rant about how unwell and overwhelmed I am. I can’t wait to get better and be able to tell everyone “See this IS real!”….Some people just won’t ever get it until they experience something like that that takes over your life like a phantom.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to my amazing parents who have been through all of this with me and have had to suffer through this journey with me. There is no way I would have ever been able to do any of this without them. They have dedicated so much time and effort into finding out WHY I have been so unwell these past years and because they never gave up I finally have ann answer. I love you both so much and don’t know how I can ever repay you ❤ ❤ ❤
