So, how many of us would like to harm him and tell him he doesn’t need anything for the pain?

Israeli Invention May Spare Visit To Doctor…
Ever since I first heard about this invention earlier in the year, I was quite fascinated by the prospect of it. Factoring in that a standard doctor’s appointment, without insurance, is about $150-$175 in my area, I think this is worth it. Especially for those of us that find it hard to physically get to a doctor’s office due to pain, not to mention the exhaustion and weakness that often accompanies it, or have to commute more than five minutes to a primary care doctor. Some of my doctors are more than an hour away, so this would make a huge difference for me when it pertains to certain things. Anyone else think this is interesting?

The Fibromyalgia Myth
This FREAKS ME OUT. I have been tested for Lyme Disease more than once, but I am going to request a re-test due to some of the things I have been experiencing of late, just to be on the safe side. For some of us, I think we need to be tested and re-tested because Lyme Disease is no joke. Neither is Fibromyalgia, but there’s no denying that the symptoms are the same and if we’re not seeing any relief, maybe there’s a misdiagnosis somewhere along the line. How amazing would it be if some of us could get our lives back and not have to suffer to the extent that we do?
I don’t think it hurts to double-check and find out if any of this applies to some or maybe even all of us. Better safe, than sorry. Don’t be afraid to speak up, ask questions, and be your own advocate.
Are You Telling Your Psychiatrist The Truth?
Lets be honest, not a lot of them really listen or hear us. I don’t recommend telling every single thing to the first doctor you see, I’d wait until you develop a sense of trust and respect first, but don’t withhold anything that could help you get better care. This actually applies to all doctors, really.
What If Depression Goes Untreated?
I don’t agree with all of this (mostly the feeling better part, because I never have), but I definitely feel that getting help is something you should be proud of. Be ashamed if you think there’s nothing wrong with you, and you refuse to discuss it or seek help.
