Neurologists = My Nightmare

Holy Fucking Shit.

So, to keep you all up to date with what is going on - some people know already.  I had some kind of fucked up seizure late Sunday night and had to be taken to the ER, lights a flashing.  

Side Note to Paramedics - When someone presents with seizure symptoms and their husband tells you this, PLEASE TURN OFF THE FLASHING STROBE LIGHTS ON THE AMBULANCE until you get them inside.

Second Side Note to Paramedics - You guys were great and when I start feeling better, I am sending you a love basket.

Actually, I had two of them at my house and another one in the emergency room.  

Note to SHITTY ASS HOSPITAL where I never want to go again - it would be a good idea if your IV tubing matched that of the ambulance, so you didn't have to rip my arm open trying to change out the tubing.

Here are some neat things about my trip to the hospital:

1.  After having a third seizure while I was there, they put bumper pads up on my bed.  Next stop = fully padded room.
2.  I had an allergic reaction to Dilantin.  Why oh why would the doctor then prescribe it for me?  Fucking idiot.
3.  During allergic reaction, the nurse attempted to control me so she could drug my ass up....
the following occurred:
- I sat straight up in the bed and screamed at her "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS ALL ABOUT"
- She then told me that "We don't use that kind of language here"
- I then said "FUCK IT I DON'T GIVE A SHIT"
- I then passed out from all of the drugs
4.  Best part ever - my husband said to me "This is going to make a great story for your blog"

Ha, fucking, ha.  He has come over to the dark side.

So, I have been drugged out of my mind on and off since Monday.  My dad is flying up to Ohio to take me to my neurologist appointment - my doctor does not like this guy, but he was the only one who could see me this week.

I am VERY nervous.  I thought I had this shit under control, but apparently... not so much.

So, I am very behind at work.  I am worried about losing my new job and I don't know what is happening to me.  Scary shit all around.

At least I can keep my sense of humor.  If I can tell a nurse to fuck off, there is hope left yet.

So this afternoon, I go see Dr. Doom and then we will see what happens.  From my GP's perspective, she thinks that they will order and EEG to check my brain.  Like we all don't already know I am fucked up in the head.

Just to show you how messed up I have been, here is the transcript of the texts that I sent to my boss Monday about 4 hours after I got home from the ER:

I was in the er last nigh
Didn't get n
Back top laws

Until late    sorry bout that
I'll be online in avojo

What.  The.  Fuck.

Drugged to the gills.

Anyway, don't tell anyone, but I am a little freaked out.  One, this neurologist does not have the best reputation and two I fucking hate doctors.  The only exception being my family doctor who is the shit.


It could always be worse.

Oh honey seizures are no good! I had no idea. I'm glad you're ok (somewhat) and I hope your appointment goes well. :)

Ack!! I am so sorry to hear this!!
Maybe you should go ahead and try to line up a better neurologist for a 2nd opinion? GOOD LUCK! And take care of you...
I usually get REALLY mean in the ER, but my own trip this past weekend--I was actually pretty pleasant. I think in part because they were able to get me to stop barfing very quick. :p

Oh p.s., your new job CANNOT fire you for health issues. That is illegal. If they try it, message me, and I will put the HR smack down!

I hope you don't laugh in his face when he tells you that you are normal... I hope they find something. Nothing is not good. Then you know it will happen again. Good luck and I will say a prayer for you. I hope I don't get struck down. I don't do that very often...

Lots of hugs, good thoughts, good vibes...prayers...whatever you believe in or want. I'm sending them.

Get a second Neurologist lined up. If the first one is a quack, at least you'll have a second opinion in the works.

And as far as the good blog story goes....tell you hubby "Welcome to the darkside. We have cookies."

Hang in there. You'll come out like a champ. Balls to the wall, baby.

Neurologists suck. (Lets hope it doesn't get to neurosurgeons... Because I can tell you stories up the ass about that too)

Hopefully your primary doctor can make sense of whatever the dr doom says.

Good luck!

Tug said...

I loved my nuerosurgeon. Course that was 1998. in Vegas.

Hope you don't have to get that
