one day it'll all make sense.

A little effort please

Yesterday morning, my oatmeal just didn’t seem to have my flavor… As the day continued, I learned that nothing seemed to have much flavor. On top of this, the inside of my mouth felt like I had just left the denist and everything was frozen.
Skip to today – just doing some dishes this morning, and I dropped a mug on the floor. Yup, shattered. After sweeping up the broken mug and grabbing another, I parked it on the couch for a quick coffee date with my girl. Somehow drooled coffee onto the couch. Great start to the day, but I just laughed it off as usual. 🙂
THEN on my way to work, my right arm and right side of my head/face went numb. At this point, I wasn’t laughing anymore. Continued on my way to work, but when my key holder showed up I left to go to the hospital to get checked out. While I’ve experienced many relapses before, many of which involved numbness, today felt different. I’ve never been through numbness in my head before. When I got to the hospital, the triage nurse told me my symptoms pointed towards that of a stroke, but because I had MS she wasn’t sure what to do. I was quickly taken into the Acute care section, but as soon as the dr read “MS” on my chart, he didn’t put ANY effort into any further diagnosis. I’m sure I’m not alone on this one. Yes, I have a critical illness that many people don’t understand (often myself included) but it would be nice to see a dr once in a while that you didn’t have to ASK to not take the easy out. Too many times I’ve heard “that could be just a symptom of your MS”.
What if it’s not??

  1. Oh Kate, this entry really made me angry.
    I can’t believe that they did that.
    I really hope you begin to feel better…
    You are always in my prayers, girl.
