      Just logged on in ages and saw this. Thanks @8888 for noticing or I would never have known. 😂

  2. The specialist said it's not an immune disorder after all. So now I'm stressed because I'm so lost. I feel like it is and because I've been trying to manage it, it looks like something ordinary. This saga never ends.......

  3. Over Christmas, my mother told me that she thinks I have diabetes. Mind you, I'm overweight, but I don't think it's severe and I'm not obese. But I'm still the biggest person in my family. And my mom tells me all the time how much I need to lose weight. Makes me wonder if she would love me more if I were thinner.

      That's horrible! And thin people can get diabetes too, so she's a bit dim. Sorry she said that to you.

  4. My dad just informed me that he might be hospitalised over christmas because of pain. Plus his cancer has shot up from a 4 to a 12. I'm still very dependent on him so this is very stress inducing to me. As much as he and I don't get along, I hope he can stay alive until I can get back on my feet

  5. Feel so crummy after my interview. I didn’t completely blow it but didn’t exactly wow them either 😔🙁😞

      Sorry that was the impression you got. Hopefully things went better than you thought. Crossing my fingers for you!

  6. I'm seeing the specialist tomorrow. So stressed about what they'll say. I want a diagnosis but at the same time am scared to hear it.

      @mini.finch Thank you! It turned out alright I think. They identified that I have an immune disorder that is causing my problem, but they can't treat that, so I've once again been referred to another specialist. This time a specialist so special that there are only 4 in my state, and 1 in my area. This is costing me a fortune to deal with, but at least I now know what's wrong.

  8. Am feeling a little overwhelmed with health stuff. Just spoke to a specialist on the phone to book a consult and what she told me made me think they'll refer me back to a doctor. I feel like I'm being ping-ponged around. It's frustrating but also scary.

      @Free2Fly I don't know if this is a case of them wanting more money. They honestly have seemed baffled. The doctors here don't want the responsibility of accidentally misdiagnosing you, so they send you to specialists. The first one I saw thought it was an easy fix, but the treatment plan wasn't working so she was stumped and just kept telling me to come back and see her. That, plus a couple of the things she said, made me distrust her abilities, so I went and saw another. That one was fresh out of uni and diagnosed the same as the first. Frustrated, I went and saw another one and that one finally took me seriously and determined it was beyond her ability to fix so I have to see an even more specialist for a consult. This has taken YEARS! And I still don't know what's wrong!

      @Doll6 Sorry you're experiencing this too. It's not at all nice not knowing.

      @Free2Fly The doc referred me to a specialist, then the specialist referred me to an even more specialist. None of them do blood tests, though, and by the sounds of it, that is what they'll advise me to get. So back to the doctor, most like..........

      @Field8 It's driving me and my wallet nuts too!

  11. Today has been a weird day. All my colleagues have said how weird today has felt. And if you were to ask us why we felt it was weird, we'd shrug. It still feels weird....

  14. Feeling down because I didn't get the job. The interview seemed to go well so I don't know what happened.... I tried not to get my hopes up, but...😢. I'm in such a hopeless situation

  15. Being demisexual is hard, sigh.

      I thought I might be that at one point, but although I'm not, I can still relate to some of the struggles. Thinking of you!

  16. Not sure where to put this, an idea for a writing topic:

    How do you evolve enough that when you hear the phrase "self care" you don't immediately roll your eyes, shake your head, and make the finger-down-the-throat vomit hand gestures?

      Ah yes, the corny language that tends to surround mental health 😂
