Big news

May 06, 2019 5:06 PM

Hi everyone I have big news my family and I sold our house and are moving to Dallas Texas in June. I’m very scared because change is hard and their is a million what ifs running through my head as well as who my new doctors will be and who is going to help me get a service dog prospect I’m currently looking at hypoallergenic dogs. My pain has been pretty bad and I really need to see a gi specialist but I can’t add anymore doctors as it would be pointless to go to one visit and then leave. I am trying very hard to at least get a psych eval before I leave because of my anxiety. I am getting tested for POTS Friday and have to come off sleeping pills which hardly work to get me to sleep anyway. The good news about this move is that I will have a pool so I can do pool therapy when I’m in pain.

Wow that's exciting Talia! Change is hard. I hope your upcoming tests give you answers. Maybe if you journal your thoughts things will be clearer to you. I like to make lists of things I have to do. It helps me see things get accomplished.

I see a specialist in the Neuro surgery area, in Dallas! Frank Fagenbaum, bad spelling, he has offices in Pine Creek med center. He is known for Tarlov cysts, but his office might give you someone to see or a good list of local doctor's. Changing docs can be scarry, but sometimes beneficial.

Talia, wish you the best with your new move. Change is always difficult at first. Hope you are able to get a good doctor down there who will take the time to listen to you. Love and best wishes!😘🤗🦋🌈
