i'm 27, and up to recently took no medication after being exposed to benzene a few years ago. at the minute i am on lansoprazole to control acid in stomach. was on doxycycline before this. and before this i had inflamed muscles between my ribs and my back and its gettin
[More]g me down. don't think lansop is working though as i feel rotten, my chest is sore and my weird tongue is back.
i have been diagnosed with having moderately severe anxiety disorder, OCD, panic attacks, costochondritis and who knows what else. but have had CBT and found it very helpful.
Awww that's a shame! You know that medicine will help you...you should take it so you can feel better. Things are likely to be worse if you don't take the medicine than if you do take the medicine. Just look at me--I'm on a lot of medication and I'm still fine! I'd rather not be, but I know that most of them are serving a specific purpose, so I stick with them for the time being. How are things otherwise?
I've been doing alright these days, thanks for asking! I got my health insurance restored a few weeks ago, and today is my first doctor's appointment--I'm oddly excited because I can't wait to hear what my neurologist has to say about the nerve damage to my throat. I hope he doesn't disappoint me by having nothing to say...I'm sick of him ignoring my neurological symptoms and telling me I only have migraines!!! Besides this, I have a few other appointments coming up...so hopefully I'll know more about what's going on with me soon! In the meantime, I'm keeping busy with schoolwork, finding a summer internship, and hanging out with friends. How about you? Hopefully the weather's getting a little warmer over in Ireland after a chilly winter!
I got my health insurance back, finally...that was a long and silly mess that never needed to happen. I've rescheduled doctors appointments and hopefully within a few weeks I'll be back on track for at least another 10 months (when my health insurance runs out because I can no longer be covered by my parents...I'll have to get my own, cheap insurance). Hopefully, they can fix me before then! How are you doing these days? Still hanging in there? I was lazy and kind of ignored this site for a few months, but I'm back and hoping to stick around longer...it'll be important that I keep track off all my diagnoses/appointments/etc. =)
