Sickness and Therapy

I was reading back through my blog last week and I realized that I haven't been very good at updating my followers on what's going on in my life. I mean, you all know how I'm feeling emotionally but I'm not good at writing about my health and such. So here is an update on me.

I'm still sick. I have now been sick for 8 months. And while I do have good days and good weeks and even good months, I keep going back to being sick. It is so discouraging and I'm beyond frustrated. My doctor doesn't care about me at all and thinks it's a virus that will pass. But I really think that there must be more that can be done, more than can be investigated, more that can be tried. Something is wrong with me and I need to find out what it is. I'm also concerned about my weight. I lost 10 pounds in two months back in the fall and haven't gained anything back. Well, one pound which really isn't that much. I was underweight before this whole thing started and now I'm really underweight. I just want to be better again. So, I am trying to get in to see a doctor of internal medicine and maybe he'll be able to help me. I just have to get a referral from my stupid doctor first. Blah.

I have also started seeing a psychologist. Back in January we decided it was time for me to get some help as I was not handling things very well. I've been three times and so far it's been good. I think that it's helping me to see that my feelings are normal and I have to acknowledge them and stop pushing them aside as not important. This is how I feel and I have to deal with it. Hopefully I will continue to benefit from the appointments.

That is basically the update on me. Hopefully I'll be able to give more positive updates soon.
