However I am annoyed- I went to the endocrinologist today and i’m basically fed up with all of this lab work. It’s been weeks since I’ve slept because I have to pee all the freakin time, so I get maybe 2 hours (3 if i’m lucky) then I get up to use the bathroom, it takes me like 30min to fall back asleep and 2 hours later i’m up so I get approximately 4 hours of actual sleep a night. It’s a blast. So therefore my head hurts from being so exhausted, my stomach is all in a knot and it’s just not a good situation. I’m afraid of getting fired for having to leave work so many days for appointments (between lab tests, my toes, and my eyes it’s a lot), which doesn’t help my stomach, my sleep or my general mood.
When I got an actual hopeful diagnosis I was so excited, they could have told me I had prostate cancer and I would have gone with it! Now I get to the doctor today and she tells me the test that hinted at diabetes insipidus wasn’t a very good one to use as a diagnostic tool so she wants to do another one, and she gave me these two huge jugs I have to pee in for 24 hours then drop them off next monday morning, which of course will make me late to work. I also have to go back in the wednesday after that for a follow-up, meaning OF COURSE I have to leave work early. I might just message them and say I can’t thought, because really if they can’t use the 500 tests that are on my record as baseline blood panels then I don’t care anymore.
This poor woman is the straw on this thirsty camels back and she has no idea how dangerously close to flipping out on her I am. Sorry Dr. Ahkter- things are about to get a little interesting. F your pee jugs.
