Christmas Shopping Progress

So… on Friday I was so fed up with my daughter still being sick and no doctors being available to help us, that I stopped giving her all the prescriptions she was on… They didn’t seem to help or make any difference anyway.

And today she started feeling so much better! This is the best she’s felt in 2 weeks! I’m not saying there’s a correlation, but I’m losing trust in the medical system for sure. I don’t like their lack of urgency, their lack of investigation, and I definitely do not like their lack of availability.

We’re still going to pursue specialists to help us figure out what’s going on with her, but my distrust is still firmly in place.

She felt so much better that we went Christmas shopping and she picked out gifts for 3 of her cousins, her 2 best friends, and her 3 teachers.

We even wrapped them today too.

I still have to make a proper shopping list for everyone else (all the difficult folks are still left – oof), but I’m happy to get the easy ones out of the way already.

  1. After this pandemic crazy – I have only gratitude for medical workers.
    But I get what you mean – some times I do feel like some doctors are mindless and trying to make a quick buck. My dad had a weird ache in his leg and this doctor gave him a fairly expensive brace and it didn’t help at all. We went to another doctor and he prescribed 2 meds and he was better in a few days. πŸ™ˆ

    1. It’s definitely mostly my frustration speaking here. Because overall, I do appreciate the job that medical workers do. I COULD NOT survive a single day in that job at all. No way! So in general, I totally agree with you. Just in this very specific instance where I’m having difficulty finding answers for my child, I’m having a hard time showing my gratitude. But once they figure it all out and fix her all up, the gratitude with overflow! It’s just a really difficult time for me right now, I am sorry. πŸ™

  2. I’m so glad she’s feeling better! Maybe the meds were making her worse? Sometimes I feel like they give meds that cause more symptoms just so they can give more meds. It’s sad that we can’t even trust medical professionals anymore.

    1. Thanks Michelle! I don’t know if the meds were making her worse, but I do know that they weren’t making her any better! And that was good enough reason for me to quit them. πŸ™

    1. I hope it stays that way too. But she wasn’t on any medications when her issues started, so we’re still unclear what caused it. Which means we don’t know how to prevent it from happening again either. πŸ™
