I had a blog for Multiple Sclerosis, but now it seems they’ve found yet another diagnosis for my maddening and wildly varied symptoms. I am happy for a more unifying diagnosis, but have been through this process far too many times. I need to find another specialist in another state and then figure out how exactly I’m going to pay all the bills. My one saving grace is the change in medications has vastly changed my day-to-day life and it’s only been one day, so hurray for small blessings.
My son has ADHD. Up until now, we’ve just dealt with it. Then I got sick, and we medicated him. Now I hopefully will get better and be able to parent in a way that helps him to find success.
My husband has been mom, dad, breadwinner, and everything else in the household I hope to replace some of those roles as they are mine and I love them.
I want to go back to my life and all that I love, but I know that I need time to recover, make sure this is the correct diagnosis and find balance and such. I want to do and be. Illness just makes me cranky and bored. I’m ready to be done, but this is a lifelong haul, not a simple solution. I need to find balance between finding a life I love, and managing my medical. Wish me luck. 🙂
Finally, finances. Ours suck. We are in debt up to our noses, and can’t pay bills. People keep asking why. Here’s why. I lost my ability to work, married a teacher and then spent ten + years accumulating massive medical bills that doubled in intensity this past year. We are behind and may never recover, but we do our best, and everything else will just have to muddle it’s way through. I am taking donations if anyone is interested. LOL
Time for new medical pursuits, new goals, new dreams, greater hope and hopefully a fulfilling life despite it’s drawbacks. Hope is a powerful thing. I missed it, but now it’s found again, and I will hold on to it with all my might.
