"If I only had a Brain"

yeah.. I do. That's the problem. My Brain hurts. I've been seeing way too much of my Dr. lately. I despise forking over the co-pays so I need to be in some serious pain to even schedule an appt.

I go last week because I'm dealing with pain in both ears. In addition I had a splitting headache that 3 motrin only dulled. So I mentioned that to her also. I have fluid in both ears and an infection in the right. OK.. gimme some antibiotics. She asks me questions about my headaches. Yes....I have had them for a while now. No... pain intensity differs from day to day. Oh and I also have random aches and pains that make me feel really old.

So now I have to get some serious testing done.. a long sheet for blood work is the 1st thing to test for myalgias and rheumatoid issues among other stuff. And also a CT scan of my brain to make sure I don't have some sort of aneurysm or tumor or something in there. Loads of fun huh ??

To add insult to injury I can't even go to the radiology center around the corner in the evening some time. I need to go to the hospital between 8 and 3:30 because I have asthma and difficulties with iv's on occasion. I have to take some Steroid kit before the CT scan so I don't have some sort of reaction and die.


And I have to go alone. Even better.

Just do the labotomy and be done with it.
