Has there been a recent increase in alien abductions in the Nebraska area? Should I go check the fields for crop circles? See if "send us more neurologists" has been written in the budding corn crops? I have no other explanation for why my neurologist has done a complete 180 and turned into a good neurologist other than she has had an anal probe done recently and got that annoying stick out of her hind quarters. I still can't wrap my head around it. I had an appointment with her yesterday and she was wonderful! I left there feeling good about her and myself. It is all so strange... I have almost never felt good about myself since my diagnosis. Maybe she got tired of my outspoken butt head ways, heard the grinding of the whet store as I sharpened my claws for attack, and decided she wanted to keep my private insurance money so she changed her ways. I don't know what happened but I like it. If this continues I may have to add her as a friend on one of the social networking sites I am on and start instant messaging her. I could send her a bunch of those annoying face things and we could talk sh*t about the nurses and doctors in her office.
She was so good and took everything I had to say seriously, even accepting my problems and acknowledging that I knew my body so it had to be as I said it was. She didn't try to tell me that what I am feeling is not what I am feeling and took it as fact. I poured out my heart to her and we worked out a plan of action to get me where we would like me to be. I am going to go to a pain management clinic to see what can be done and if there are other meds and things I can do to help me get some semblance of relief. I am also going to participate in a balance study where I go in and get assessed, then follow an exercise regimen and see if it helps. I will get a free membership to a local MS health club -- yes, I will be hobnobbing with other MSers -- and do their exercises to see how it helps my balance, if at all. Because I am so poor, I was considering quitting Tysabri and talked to her about going back on Copaxone. My co-pay for Tysabri is almost $400 a month while my co-pay with Copaxone is $5 a month. She does not want me to go off Tysabri because of my history of so many horrible attacks, so she is going to call the hospital where I get my infusions and see about getting me some financial aid. I told her the story of when I was using my little sister's arm for support and that ^&#%* woman asked us if we were gays and my response to her question and she got a huge laugh out of it. She told me I should be glad that I am not that woman because that is worse than having MS. I had to agree with her.
It is all so strange. I don't know what happened to my REAL neurologist, but if you find her, please do not return her. I am enjoying this new and improved neurologist so much more.
