Pity party is over


My agitation is gone. I am not making myself sick being overly anxious. I went today for my first visit at my old APN nurse and pharmacologist. She was the one who visited my therapist’s office. I found out today she came there once a month and there were only 2 patients using her, me and another. She kept having cancellations or no-shows. I don’t even know why they bother. It doesn’t seem worth it. Maybe after what just happened, and I told Laura and Michael I would become a regular patient there. they might rethink that idea. I am not messing around with visiting nurses anymore. And I was told the other patient also came to her. Sounds like they don’t need a visiting nurse at all. I just realized my therapy session is tomorrow.

I had an hour evaluation and I had to see the intern as she is simply booked clear through several months. The intern is actually less cost to me. I still get my scripts and she has been established at this office for some time. She doesn’t take insurance so I can switch insurance and not worry about her not being on the list of providers. I have been paying out of pocket all this time anyhow.

So I now have all my scripts and don’t have to go back for 3 months. That will help my budget. Going once a month with 2 therapy sessions was quite expensive. Add in my chiropractor visits and my reflexology visit each month. Plus regular doctor and specialists that I see I don’t quite know how I manage to stretch what little I get as far as I have.

I am still getting mood swings from missing those 2 days of medication. Don’t do it if you can avoid it. It causes issues and I only missed 2 days worth.

    I make up my night and am meds every day at noon. By the time I am cooking for us, I dont’ want to be bothered. I am on so many meds that it is a precision job. I really have to focus and then lay them out in little caps. We also have a list on the wall so Mike can make them up if I am asleep which happens sometimes. I pay cash for my med person and I see him too often but I’m on stuff that requires close supervision.

      I use a weekly pill holder with 4 sections each. I have my regular AM pills, my vitamins, and my night pills which includes psych meds and is not on an alarm system on my phone.
