    Call the Dr. at the University and ask to get on his cancellation list. It works most of the time. When someone cancels they will call to see if you want their spot. It usually gets you in much sooner

    Yes Jmail I am about 2 hours from Charleston. I have had another bad complication today my blood sugar is almost 400 and has been staying that way all day. I am on an insulin pump. I talked to a nurse advocate thru our insurance and she said that with my lupus this high the inflamation is raising my blood sugar. I will go back to PCP tomorrow and I kind of figure he will put me in the hospital this time. I just know I have never felt this bad. Even after a horrendous back surgery I recovered. Thanks everyone for listening.

    Yeah, def get in to see him in light of a 400. That's doin' you more harm than the lupus. The lupus might even be hitting your endocrine system.

    Thanks everyone. I made it thru the weekend. Still no luck with the rhematologist. They are booking in January. My intestines were so flared that my family doctor took a chance and gave me a shot even though it is not good for my diabetes. It has helped a lot. I really think that it kept me out of the hospital. He said that he would give them to me until I can get to the University. Thank you all so much for your concern. It is so hard this disease especially to get someone to understand. I appreciate you all very much. Linda

    So sorry to hear you're having such a rubbish time, especially at Thanksgiving and with Christmas coming up too! We're all thinking of you and will be here with virtual hugs and support when you're in your darkest pain moments or even if you just need a little pick me up! Hang in there, January isn't too far away now! ~hugs~ xx

    Have you asked to get on the cancellation list? I usually get in within a week when I do this.
