Back from pain management. It went like I predicted. Just checking my vitals and that all of the meds are good. They’re all good so I’m continuing on. They don’t make everything better, (well, except the pain pill) but they do prevent everything from getting worse. For now I guess that’s all I can do.
I love both of my doctors. I only saw one of them today but she’s awesome. She asked me if I lost weight and I said yeah and she said how awesome that was. She asked about school and said how proud she was of me. She’s hilarious and makes the appointments less of a chore.
I didn’t set out to lose weight, which is why I didn’t mention it before. I had to alter my diet because of hereditary gastro issues that I’m basically trying to hold off on surgery for. I also resolved to cut a little bit more soda out of my diet just because I’ve been going off track of not drinking enough water, which I’ve been ordered to do since I was 13. It’s paid off for the better, I guess, because I’ve probably dropped 8-10 pounds. I based that off of my change in clothing, which isn’t a huge difference. Really small. I’d know a real estimate except their scale was weird and it read that I didn’t change at all, which doctor could tell I obviously was not.
We came to the conclusion that I look a lot healthier and am coping 10x better than I did last semester with the pain. I guess I’m coping better, so for now my treatment plan is set until something changes. I don’t feel like I look any different, but I guess some people think I do.
I still have good days and quite a few bad days (especially over the past 2 months with the wonky weather) but overall I guess I’m doing better with coping :)
