Dressing for Doctor

Recently, I finally surrendered to pains which have been nagging me for way to long. Much like the plumber with the leaky faucet, we, Doc families seem to be walking case studies of a plethora of ailments, aches, and pains - especially the adults. If something's hurting, I just wait until Doc H comes home, mention it in passing and wait for a response. Usually, I get no response other than a nod (translation: I have no idea. You’ll probably feel better in a day…

Bankruptcy Happy Dance.

So we just finalized out Bankruptcy. It many ways it is a closing of a very hard chapter for Ian and I. I don’t imagine so many couples would be trilled for their bankruptcy, as much as we are.  We had about 200k, all of which was medical debt.

Over the past 10 years, we have spent 7 of them without insurance. In those 10 years we have survive 3 layoffs, two evictions, and we moved about 6 times in 5 years. And that is only the been the financial  set backs.

The emotional…

Alone vs Lonely (Part II)

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post.



These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…

Do You Do Your Own Medical Research Or Do You Leave It To Your Doc?

I do my own research and I think it's high time that doctors get used to us doing this. 



Doctors need to adjust to a reality that patients are actively engaging in their own care and should be treated as partners in their care. This means that at times the doctor may disagree with a patient's diagnoses and prognosis. Well as partners do, then the…

What's a Mom's Job?

One son living off formula and on a feeding tube and another son with hearing aids - this could’ve been me.  But it’s not.  Instead, I have a son who’s healthy and thriving and another who hears fine.  Where we lucky?  Did God simply smile done at us?  Yes.  But I also know that my children are lucky to have a mom.

 

Let me share with you what I heard when I walked into a doctor’s office.

 

“But Doctor, isn’t there anything I can do to help Ethan overcome his…

Mother's Instinct v. Worrisome Nut

Okay, so before my kids put me through the wringer and taught me a thing or two, I always thought that some moms were just nutty.  They just worried themselves for no reason whatsoever.  Now, I think maybe there was something to it- I now believe in mother's instinct.  So much so, I wrote a book, Little Patient Big Doctor.  But I still have my question- how do we know when it's instinct speaking and when it's just us being overly… Continue

Neurologist - A Total Waste of Time Read On

Some weeks back I was experiencing frequent dizzy spells and on some occasions blackouts. I went to my G.P. to report this deterioration in my condition and he suggested I go visit a Neurologist. Well the day arrived this week but what a waste of time it turned out to be, let me explain.

I arrived early having taken a taxi because I didn't… Continue

10 Days of Gout and going crazy!!!

I have been suffering with pain in my joints (on my right foot, ankle and fingers) for ten days now. I went to the doctor (after much research) and thought, for sure, I'd get some help for Gout. To my surprise, the doctor caughed it up to a "stress fracture". He pulled, pushed and stretched my foot till there was nothing left. He gave me a shot of pain reliever and anti-inflammitory (sorry- so dizzy and frustrated, if I sound confusing- bare with me please).

I just don't know…

5 reasons for being a good "wife"

The word "friend" has been so tainted by frenemies, rotating BFF's and being able to defriend with a click of a mouse that we now need a new term for our closest friends and allies: wives. A Band of Wives is a website for women who are interested in women's issues, proactive, supportive and generally down with making their friendships a priority. www.abandofwives.ning.com

When the Certified Letter Comes I'm Going to Stamp Deceased on it and Return It

I did something stupid for which I am positive there are going to be repercussions. I knew I shouldn’t while I was in the middle of dialing. My heart was racing and that’s usually when I know. Wait. Don’t act now. I’m very familiar with this warning signal, and yet this time I couldn’t stop myself.



Dear Self, please try not to tell off people at doctors’ offices. It never ends well. Especially don’t tell someone off on their voicemail. Look what happened to Tiger Woods when he left a… Continue

Are You Getting the Most out of Your Co-Pay? ARE YOU REALLY?

I’m a one-at-a-time divulger, usually. But I walked into my doctor’s office and I had a list of three things I wanted to talk about. My arthritic finger that my husband has diagnosed as Lyme’s. My thyroid medicine that was switched last month but isn’t “right”. My undiagnosed ADHD that is morphing into early Alzheimer’s. (See Friday’s pie chart.)



I wrote all three things down on a clipboard that I brought from home, with the carefully worded back story on each. I labeled and… Continue

Let's Go Tubing!

This week, on Thursday to be exact, Kayla will be getting tubes in her ears. During our appointment with the ENT specialist last week they hooked her ears up to a machine that tests pressure and fluid levels.



She failed miserably.



Both ears are still filled with fluid, her left ear being the worse than the right. I feel so AWFUL for her. Her poor little ears have not been fluid free since OCTOBER! That's 5 solid months of fluid and on and off again infections. I can't even… Continue
