I need a new Dr.

Rate this Entry
my rheumatologist no longer accepts dc medicaid and the dr. that i was seeing tht does accept it wanted to take me off all my meds despite my history. plus he's very sexist and tells me i'm such a pretty girl like that determines if your ill., and also implies that its psychological. I have had several other drs that agree that i have lupus but its dormant now, but i still have adverse effects: brain fog, sleep problems swelling in feet and hands, they turn bright red! vertigo, and severe fatigue. I'm also married with 4 little boys i was diagnosed in 2004 after i found out i was pregnant with my 3rd child. its cause many problems in my marriage because i've always been sickly and i feel so alone. plus i' a singer/songwriter and published poet and i want so desperately to be a star but my illness hinders me so much at times.
