Going CRAZY waiting on blood work
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME TAKE MY MIND OFF THE RESULTS!!!!
I am going nuts waiting to hear back from the doctor. I was screened for RA (dx w/ JRA 10 years ago) and also screened for SLE.
I got the blood work done on Wednesday (Feb. 15) and I called Thursday and Friday afternoon. Last I spoke with them, SOME results were back but not ALL so they would probably contact me Monday. This is miserable! I'm trying soooo hard to wait until 4 PM today to call so I don't have to call more than once in a day..
I guess ANY diagnosis or ANY answers is what I want. I don't care what it is, as long as I can start addressing everything. It's making such a negative impact on my life and I feel like I'm doing nothing but regressing. I just want to do my part to take care of everything.
(PS, I KNOW that 3 days is NOT that long, but these results have been a long time coming.. Try 10+ years.)
