So yeah, my health situation is still a joke. The biggest development in this since the last post which was just
and neurovascular condition and some other old things that are mostly managed is probably the little thing that mom has never really mentioned before that was probably never that really important until now but really is, is medication sensitivity
. This, is what makes a normally manageable, liveable illness into a disability because you cannot treat yourself properly. Of course convincing people that this is disabling is another story. I apparently, with my "burning foot disease" that is triggered by walking and standing, am not in need of a handicap parking tag. Never mind I mailed in the signed form because obviously that doctor is lying and the guy behind the desk is far more specialized in the illness I have that is so weird I went to something called grand rounds where allllll the doctors and meds students come and stare at your weird illness, because you know I am cool like that. So now I need to file an appeal so I can do things like go to stores and such.
For the last month I had not health care so I tried acupuncture, because surely you cannot have a bad reaction to acupuncture! Unless of course your are Kat.
Yes, that would be a bruise about the size of the bottom of a soda can and it is from an acupuncture needle. I have no idea how that works. It didn't happen until AFTER the needle came out either, then it was a welt, that is actually the week after so you can imagine how bad it was the first day or so. It is still there but lighter. So yeah, acupuncture didn't go too well. Which is a shame because now I have joint pain. I am a rice krispy treat. SNAP! CRACK! POP! They of course don't know what this is so it doesn't count, which is annoying because it would be useful to put on that tag so I can leave the house for things that don't involve a doctor's office or being a pincushion because my god, we are on month NINE now of homebound and the internet stopped being fun after about four. I'm too brain fogged for reading and too sloppy for video games too. I am soooooo bored.
