Had an appointment with Dr. K today. It didn't go as well as I'd hoped.
My list of concerns were:
1. Depression worse
2. Pain: elbow, hip, back (all unrelated)
3. Dry skin on my face.
1. First she wanted to blame my worsening depression on my thyroid, which I don't believe is very far off, if at all. She did get a clue and just raised my Bupropion dose instead. I guess that's about the end of the good news.
During this conversation re: depression, thyroid, etc. I discovered that it was she and not Dr. T that changed Greg's insulin and that she doesn't want him to see Dr. T any longer. She wants to do it all. Well, I believe that Dr. T who is specializing in diabetes should continue to regulate his diabetes. I'm still very stressed about this... and my appointment was more than 6 hours ago.
2. We did discuss all of my pains, but in the end nothing was done about any of them. I thought she'd either order some tests or send me for PT. But, hope, no closure what-so-ever.
3. No discussion what-so-ever regarding my skin, which is probably just as well anyway since it feels fine today. It hasn't felt too bad the past few days, but it was so dry it felt as rough as a scratch pad that you use to clean pots and pans.
Anyway, my mood pretty low and I could use prayers more than advice.
