Today I had my emergency appointment with Dr. Wolf. Turns out his medical assistant, Stephanie has twisted some information that Dr. Wolf relayed to her, and outright lied about others.
Stephanie told me that I couldn’t take any pain medication because I was so close to my colonoscopy date. That was an outright lie. She also told me that Medrol was listed as an acceptable medication in my chart. That was another lie. In fact, Dr. Wolf told me that Medrol and Prednisone acted the same exact way (another thing that Stephanie told me: she said that I could take the Medrol because it is structurally different than Prednisone, thus safe for me to take). Taking either could have thrown me into a manic episode. I cannot believe that she would even say the stuff she said.
So, I get to Dr. Wolf’s office for my appointment at 12:00, and in true Dr. Wolf form he didn’t see me until 1:15. He prescribed me Tramadol for my pain, and also phenergan for my nausea. He had me go down to the lab to have blood drawn. He also requested that I take yet another stool test to rule out c-diff. I have a follow up appointment in two months, and a colonoscopy in eight days. Maybe, we will finally get to the root cause of my current problems. I an going to continue to take Cimzia and Methotrexate subcutaneously. Hopefully, I will get some news from all these tests. I would really hate for all of them to come back negative. Because that would mean I was making shit up, and I don’t feel, deep down, that that’s the case. I still have all the same symptoms; the bathroom trips, the explosive diarrhea, the muscle cramps and spasms ( which have been greatly reduced my massages from Egg), the pain in my entire intestinal area. I am tired of feeling sick, and sick of feeling tired.
I am going to apply for disability again. I don’t know if I will get it this time, as I am not actively in a manic state, which I was last time I saw the state shrink. And to be completely honest, I don’t know if my current shrink will help out. I know Dr. Wolf will assist, as he did last time I tried. Honestly, I’m at my wits end. But there is light at the end of the tunnel, and I guess I will move towards it.
In a different type of news, I was in the men’s bathroom, washing my hands, because although I am full time, I don’t really use the women’s bathroom. A guy, who was at the urninal when I came out of the stall (because I’m still a lady) came to wash his hands, as I was just finishing up. He looked at me, then stepped out of the men’s room, then back in and apologized. LMAO, he thought he was in the wrong bathroom. HAHAAHA awesome sauce. I think it’s time to work on that name and gender change. I still need my orchi before I can change my gender in good ole GA.
So that’s it for now, dear readers of the page. Stay tuned for test results and colonoscopy prep in the coming days.
