Re: congrats winne and hubby
It's great that he can drive and that zoloft is helping, makes me
wonder if I should try that since my memory loss is one of my
most aggravating and humiliating symptoms. Yet I always forget to
add it to my list of symptoms! On my new pain/symptom diary
form I do list fibro fog as a symptom that I track and I number it 1-10
as to how bad or good it is daily, that helps me remember to
track it. Some days are better than others but in the last month it hasn't gone
below a 4 on a 1-10 scale. It hasn't ever been a 10 either, thank God.
I haven't gone to do the plates yet. I need to get the forms before I
see my doctor next as I believe he has to sign them for me. I'm not
sure if he will consider me disabled enough to qualify--of course he
doesn't live in my body but he figures I can get to his office without
a cane or wheel chair, I must be ok. At least that's how I think he would
see it. Sometimes I wish a doctor could SEE me 24/7 to know exactly
what I am going through. If I could I'd hire a video guy to just sit with
me and film my daily life. Wouldn't that be a hoot to hand it to a
I walk a fine line with my pcp doc as he doesn't want me doing hcv tx
if it's going to make me worse, so I minimize it to him because I don't
want him interfering in my life and death decisions. Once on Tx I will
feel safer about him interfering (don't ask me why) and hope to get his
help if I need it for disability and handicap plates and the like.
Anyway, glad things are finally working out in your favor. Gives me hope
that someday it will all finally come together for me as well.
