Hi. This is kind of a whiny post, so you have been warned.
I’m so effing tired of infections on my body. In my body. I don’t know. I’m just tired of them. One of the stitches from the dermatology appointment incision is infected – AND his office called yesterday to confirm the appointment for tomorrow then called TODAY to cancel the appointment. Plus I have another infection ( in another area) which means I have to start antibiotics.
Nice. Not Nice.
UMMMM….I have a bit of a problem-o here. So I told the girl and she told the medical assistant and they are getting me in tomorrow with a different doctor. OK, I am OK with that.
Then I also had an appointment tomorrow with a G.I. doctor for a consult for a colonoscopy and endoscopy and have had this appointment for no less than TWO MONTHS scheduled. Same thing happened with confirming and then CANCELLING. Doctor isn’t coming to this office for X amount of time and the soonest they can get me in is AUGUST. FREAKING AUGUST. Now, Cowden’s Syndrome affects 1 in a quarter million people. And I haven’t looked recently at the stats for colon cancer because I’m trying to keep my anxiety under control and get back to my life – but with a recommendation of a colonoscopy 2x a year – the odds are NOT GOOD. And I don’t want to wait another 3 months. I just don’t.
And, I think I have sleep apnea. My weight isn’t helping that possibility of that.
AND, anxiety makes you hold onto cortisol or something….which increases belly fat.
BUT, the good news is that I can hold a plank on my knees for 30 seconds which I could NOT do 5 weeks ago. So, the gym is paying off. My weight is just creeping up and I get discouraged. I don’t know how to reconcile that. I want my life back. EFF you Cowden’s.
