The past two weeks have been a little bit tough for me. I have felt exhausted and drained and completely overwhelmed. There are so many things on my plate that I feel like I can’t quite figure out what goes where and how to make it all fit. In a sense, I have felt the weight of the world on my shoulders.
Today I am grateful for my health and modern medicine. I have had a series of medical tests and exams over the last two weeks. I am grateful for doctors that know what they are doing and for ordering the tests that need to me performed. I am fine… I am just grateful for those professionals that have dedicated so much of their lives to the diagnosing and healing of others.
My migraines have been getting more severe and have become quite an impairment as of late. I went in to go see a neurologist this past week to see what is going on. They are looking into what could be causing it. So far, things are on the up and up and my tests have come back normal. We have one more next week and then we should be done. We have found a medication that is also helping.
Two weeks ago, when I went in for my yearly annual (that lovely appointment that we all adore) and my doctor found a mass. That has lead to my first mammogram and ultrasound. I have to tell you, I was extremely nervous and scared. It was one of those places where they are overly kind because they aren’t sure what your outcome is going to be and want you to be as at ease as you can.
After two long hours at the doctor, I am going back in for a biopsy, but I am certain that everything is going to be fine. I am just so grateful that I have the ability to go to a doctor and have things figured out. I am also so grateful for my brothers who are doctors and have helped me out along the way as well. It is always nice to have someone to calm your nerves.
