Dermatologist = Angel

The last 6 months or so I've been feeling like I'm going downhill.

I've visited my family doctor several times regarding this and seem to be getting nowhere.

I'm kind of frustrated.

Today I had an appointment with my dermatologist and I think she might just be my savior.

She walked in, looked at me and said, oh honey (this is how she talks, very sweet), you don't look good.  Is your thyroid enlarged?  It looks enlarged.

I said, well as a matter of fact, I feel miserable and I proceeded to tell her my symptoms:

1. Insomnia

2.  Extreme exhaustion

3. Frequent urination, despite drinking no more than 16 oz. of fluids a day and by frequent we are talking upwards of 25 times per day, which keeps me awake.  I've been upped on my Vesicare from 5 mg to 10 mg with zero change.  Frustrating.

4. Foggy feeling in my head

5. Extreme thirst, this is probably because I withhold fluids.

So my dermatologist, who I went to see for my acne, is concerned about my health.

She is ordering bloodwork on me to check insulin levels and my thyroid.

I also have an appointment with a urologist in 2 weeks.

All of this has really taken it's toll on me.

I try to pretend like nothing is wrong and put on my happy face, but really, inside, I'm a wreck.

I'm tired of feeling like this.

I just want to feel like ME again.

I don't want to live in my bathroom and I just want to fucking sleep.
