cloudy day

today is not only cloudy by just the weather forecast, but for my mind and soul. i am in a fog. my eyes ache. last night was difficult, when i tried to eat, i choked to the point of tossing everything back up. even the smallest thing feels like a baseball in my throat. it's only 62 degrees inside, and i am feeling tropical heat waves that never end! i have accomplished very little. have yet to eat. more out of discomfort and fear, plus not real hungry anyway. my toes and hands feel puffy, and i am continuing to cough. it's become such a regular thing that i almost don't notice it anymore. my voice sounds so strange these days. i used to be able to sing, now i am kermit the frog!

i feel yuckkyy. no energy,eyes hurt they're gonna blow outta my sockets, i just know it!!  irritable, aches and pains. coughing again, and again, and again. last night b/p 148/105, hr 138, temp 101. went to a clinic to get blood tests, because i have no insurance and cannot afford to have them done at my doctors office. they use the same lab so, anyway, i see this doctor give him the request for labs to be done from my endo, he looks at my vitals, and says if i was your dr you'd be back on the tapazole tomorrow. but call your endo. so i call endo and nurse says, the dr. does not want you to take any med's i.e. tapazole and inderal. i explain to her again that my heart is racing, she says well take the inderal but do not take the tapazole. i feel like pure *&^%$. i am expected to just wait? i know the drill, but when you feel this way, waiting is not part of the vocabulary ! i just want it to stop, go away. leave me be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just one day! my endo expects me to deal with this all weekend? she has gone nuts! but of course these dr's don't live this every darn day, they just deal with patients that have it, they can go home, no pain, no suffering,no heart racing, insomnia, wow. must be nice.boy am i whiney today!

I do not have a major headache today which is good first time in a long time.and the heartburn is gone. i must be going back to the hyper mode. I am taking inderal so i don't have the heart rate skyrocketing. the sweating for no reason is back. i slept good, only woke up 4 times.  course i took a xanax, which may have had something to do with the sleeping so good. i hate taking medications but after a while of up all nighters, you'll try anything including some root doctor therapy. it's about 60 in the house so i really don't know if i am heat sensitive or not. spoke with my gp today, she is getting me another  endo referral for a second opnion.she's not happy with my currentl situation and believes that it is time to seek out other options due to the fact that my current endo does not seem to be able to get me stablized. I  have started coughing again, with a scratchy throat, i swear i catch everything. maybe it never really went away???? i've lost 7 lbs in 2 days which is good seeing as i have gained 20 in less than a month.

well, i have just found out officially that i have no insurance. guess i'll be heading to the free clinic for my blood work and pay out the you know what for a visit with the new endo. when i went to the clinic to get my blood work they said they were "normal" till i mentioned I was hyper then, all of a sudden the dr was like well they are on the low side?? shouldn't the tsh be low and t3 and t4 be high?i appriciate the fact that it is there, i just sometimes i wonder if they are using the same  normal range they used 30 years ago!?. what would happen if i just stopped going to the dr? ok thought about it, not an option.this disease is not only going to break me mentally and physically but financially too. geeeeeeze!
