I have had a love-hate relationship with my PiCC line. For the first 2, almost 3 months, I loved it because the medication was making me better. But now that I have had a solid month with only 3 good days in it, I want this thing ripped out. All summer, I could not swim (and I was feeling well), wade in the ocean, and I have not been able to shower. I have to sit in the tub (shallow water) to wash my body & then use the kitchen sink nozzle to wash my hair. Oh what I would give to be submerged in water!
Now, I need to get in to see my doc. Perhaps we can try a different IV med. But what is out there? And will my insurance cover it? I cannot imagine what more there is to do to help me. But I do know that I can't stay like this. I can't do anything, and I have no way to make any money for our family. I need to get a job! I need mula!
Anyway, my lyme cycle hit today (along with my other cycle). Tomorrow I need to call my doctor to see if I can go in this Thurs.... can't wait anymore. Next appointment isn't scheduled until the 26th.
