I haven’t blogged lately because I’ve been going through a lot. My mom’s cancer has spread to her brain. This is what happened to my grandma. I’m worried about her. 😔 She is still going through chemo and had radiation on her head. Before the radiation, she could barely walk or function. She’s doing a bit better now and will be getting more scans. My dad’s dementia has also gotten worse.
I also still haven’t been able to get mental health care. I was having to go to the ER to get my medications. Someone from behavioral health at the hospital called a mental health place and got me a phone counselor appointment. For some reason, these places require counseling before seeing a psychiatrist. 🙄 The ER doctor set up a follow-up appointment with a regular doctor. I went to that and they took me on as a patient. The doctor said she would prescribe my medications until I can get into a psychiatrist so I don’t have to keep running to the ER. I have to do drug testing because of some medications I’m on but that isn’t a problem. The pandemic has prevented me from getting care because most places I’ve called wouldn’t even let me schedule an appointment. I’m also living in a rural area and that makes it more difficult.
Yesterday was my 37th birthday. 🎂 My mom ordered me a cake and it was really good. It was a custom order. I’m really picky about cake (and food in general). My favorite is marble with white buttercream frosting. It was an ok day.
