I'm ending the chase

I went back to my doctor today, and the x-ray is fine. I had a blood draw, and the quick part of it is fine (red/white blood cell separation). Waiting on the full blood count. Ultrasound has yet to be evaluated, the results hadn't been sent yet.

Robert put in a call today to Prof. Giladi, the ID specialist from Ichilov hospital. He hasn't called back yet.

I am officially ending this diagnosis chase. One of two things will happen with this leg pain: a) it gets worse and I wind up in the ER, or b) it stays the same and I'll just have to live with it.

I have no strength for more calls and more evaluations. I'm done. At some point when I feel stronger I will get in touch with that hearing specialist and deal with the white noise treatment plan for the noise sensitivity.

As far as therapy goes, I also am not chasing that. They called from the secretary's office yesterday and asked about which insurance carrier I have, and then hung up after telling me they will call again to give me an appointment. OK, whatever.

It feels very isolating sometimes to live in this aftermath of NF. I wish I could just snap out of it.
