OK, so all I know is we don't know anything...

Went to my doctor yesterday after work to see if we could figure out what's wrong with me. After my ER escapade, I'm more than a little afraid of going through that again, so I'd really like to know what's going on.

I told him all my symptoms and I pretty much baffled him. We've ruled out an iron deficiency because I had blood work done a while ago and it came back clean. So much for that theory. We're also working on the premises that my two episodes are related because I had the same symptoms. That of course could be wrong but nothing else makes sense.

So, he's making an appointment with a specialist (what kind I have no idea) and we'll go from there. The only issue I'm having right now is that I've used up almost all of my sick days and I only 2 1/2 days left and then I'd have to start using the remainder of my vacation days so that I still get paid. But I guess we'll deal with that bridge when we get to it.

But today, I'm not going to worry about. I'm going to go out and get some fresh air but take it easy because I still don't feel all that strong.

Does someone know where my silver linings have gotten too? Because this optimist is struggling.
