LoveMyself89's Journal, 24 June 2016

I've been going through my old weight history and it's made me really very sad. I got down to 200 even. A pound away from my second goal. And now I gained everything plus some back. It's so disheartening. I wish I had the time to focus on me and my health like I did back then. I was so motivated and doing so well and I was so happy... I've been completely unmedicated for a while now. I keep calling to make an appointment but I never get calls back and they don't give phone refills. I'm so fucked. It's affecting my job and mental state too. I can't handle anything. I'm about to end things with the guy I've been seeing for about a month. I miss Josh. Should I change his name, Internet? I'm not going to end things with Daniel because I miss Josh, just, I don't really think he's interested any longer and just doesn't want to upset me or anger me. So, I cut them before they can cut me.

Love, do you have any free/low cost clinics you could visit to get a "short term" refill of your meds until you can get an appointment with your regular physician? Or even an Urgent Care facility? And if you are having that much difficulty getting an appointment, I'd try making a drop-in visit to the office, and if that doesn't work, find another doctor (and yes, I do know that finding a new doctor that you are happy with can be a major undertaking!) With your problems, it is really important that you get back on your meds ASAP, so don't give up!! And don't give up on yourself!!!

I agree with Panda, drop in the office and make an appointment. I'd also document when/how many times you've called and bring it with you. The manager or dr may not realize that the staff isn't following up.

Sorry to hear of your troubles, I hope you can find a happier place in your own skin. As to your dietary goals, triumphs and failures, you can easily get a handle on that, food is the one thing we all control, but there's the rub, you've got to assert your control over the food and not let your eating be mindless feeding frenzies. Good luck, there's a ton of support here if you seek it out!

Thank you guys!! Sorry it is taking me so long to get back to you guys! But I do have a new endocrinologist who was recommended to me by a long term patient and nurse who has had many of the same problems I have! After my last visit with my PCP though I am now on the road to finding a new one! 😂 I have excellent insurance so the cost wasn't the issue, it was waiting for a "new patient appointment," my general forgetfulness (I wish more doctors allowed you to schedule appointments online), and a PCP who was not 'comfortable' refilling my prescription. I guess I should say PCP's since I've gone through two. 😂 Thank you for the encouraging words!!
