Total Pounds lost: 131.4
I guess I’m just feeling a little blah about everything today. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to see another pound off! I always love to see the weight drop, although I do feel like it’s been slow the past few weeks, I’m still happy and incredibly grateful.
Instead of reflecting on weight loss, I’d rather talk about what’s going on MS wise today. My doctor let me fall through the cracks and I was off Tecfidera for a little over a month. I’m back on the low dose for a couple of weeks and then back to the full dose. I hate being on the medication, but I hate my doctor even more for letting me go so long without it. Guess who’s getting a new neuro?!
You have to be your own advocate. Even if you feel like your doctor should be taking you seriously, this is still their job. If something happens to you under their care, it doesn’t affect them personally for the most part, and you can’t expect anyone else to care about you more than you care about yourself. I don’t care if they find it annoying, fight for what you know is right and don’t let ANY practitioner mess with your health. My doctor simply didn’t order my medication. Even when I told him it was out. Even after I called and spoke to him to remind him a week and a half later. Even after I called multiple times after that. He ignored my calls. Ignored my request to order the medication (even though he said that he would do it… TWICE). Never again.
I’ve had a lot of stress lately. I’m trying to stay calm but, honestly, I just don’t have very good stress management skills. I’m feeling okay. Not great, but not terrible either.
But hey, I still lost weight this week… and now thats starting to feel like a freaking miracle! Happy Friday, everyone! I’m definitely ready for the weekend!
