I have an appointment with the wheelchair seating place at the big elite medical center in mid-December. I love you, Dr. Rheumatologist! I think this process is new for him too, as most people just get a prescription and go to the vendor insurance recommends or directly to a vendor they know about (as I did before). So we'll see--at least getting an appropriate cushion that will fit and that relieves pain will help a lot. I have a full prescription rather than just a cushion prescription so we can do what's needed (a combination of my expertise about my body and a therapist's about chairs). He's also glad to help with forms for the service dogs. He did not realize I often cannot get out of bed by myself.
I have to see a pulmonologist before trying Enbrel (but that was the only specialist I didn't have!). Probably for the best since I have had a mild cough since September--don't want to give myself a b bad infection. Le sigh. No le torture wanted. I am having weird nail changes/finger pain due to arthritis, so dermatologist in January.
Worked it out with a few people who weren't talking to me and found out what some of their fears were with talking to me (something that never occurred to me about me looking like I needed help but not knowing if they should offer). Now I feel more comfortable at one of the kids' weekly activities.
Advice? Things I should know or consider?
