Hey all, Been quiet on my end. Mainly because I’ve been trying to adjust to the reality of having to wait another year for social security but also because, well how’s the saying go, “if it weren’t for bad news, I’d have no news at all?”
Nothing earthshaking, but the Occupational Therapist said that my eyes are in bad enough shape if it were up to her, she would put me on limited driving. I and my family are all noticing signs of memory loss, worse speech, vision, extreme fatigue, it’s just all going the wrong way. and then the OT refers me to a Neurological Optometrist because she says I have double vision both ways (up and down and side to side) -or is that diagonal vision? I don’t know. And there are other neuro-eye issues too. Filling out paperwork for them - out of a list of 50 possible symptoms I could be experiencing, I have 38 of them.
I have a full time job trying to take care of my own health care.
No, when to say when is not a cry for help in the sense that I’m planning to hurt myself, I’m not. If I was, I would scream it loudly on here, I promise. It’s asking for help - how do I get things set up so that there’s a medical person who is managing all of this crap so that I don’t have to try to heal and try to deal with insurance at the same time? I can’t keep up on both of them…
Steps down, doesn’t drop the mic, just hands it to the next person.
