yar

two hours till we (mum, dad, myself) leave to go to the chiropractor. then this afternoon is my doctor appointment with a new female doctor. i'll be having blood work, full physical etc. hopefully she sends me to an OT or PT for my hands. hopefully also a prescription for sleeping pills. dear god, i pray this woman actually listens to me, and gives me some damn sleeping pills. i have had sleep issues my whole life. but it got bad (i.e. insomnia) when i was probably 12/13 and ever since then, i think i've been exhausted. how insane is that. nearly ten years. i have tried everything else. nothing works, or if it does help a little (melatonin) i can't take it constantly. and it doesn't work good enough anyways. the worst sleep, is when i am tired enough to sleep and go to sleep but my brain is just whirring away the entire time. that is terrible.
so yes, i have not slept. (i am not even going to touch on all the chronic pain junk) and i have a whole day ahead of me. (also i can't eat! because? blood tests!)
first, when we got here in windsor it was insomnia, because i wasn't getting enough rest and then would have to do things during the day. then i wouldn't be able to sleep. so when i finally was able to sleep, i just slept till i woke up. which today, three p.m. hence, still awake. i'm pretty tired, but there's no point really now, i still have to have a shower. maybe, i'll be able to have a nap somtime after chiro's and before lady doc.

how are you all?

What did the doctors end up saying?

she is going to try to find me a sleep specialist, and we're going to talk to my chiro about the hypermobility issues. i didn't even get half of my blood work that i needed today, because before he even got a full vial i started to pass out and was so bad he couldnt even get three (i need like 8 or something) so the lab guy and the nurse we're icing me down and stuff, it was insane. i felt really bad, cuz i had warned him that for some reason that happens and he didn't really believe me, because its rare that happens with such a little amount of blood.
so i have to go back this week, and also i have to do a hormone saliva test. which is hella expensive. but with all my stuff, its definitely a hormone problem. so yeah. i don't know much yet. just that my boobs have no lumps. i had a pap smear too, but that will probably be normal. she doesn't want to give me sleeping pills, till she checks everything out, and till i see a specialist for the sleep stuff. which is reasonable. so just a whole lot of wait and see.

so basically, i won't know anything for at least a week or so. and the hormone test takes a few weeks, because it has to be sent to a lab in alberta.
