yea they are supposed to call if someone cancels its a machine I will use at home and they only have a limited amount . I did get the psych eval scheduled for next month due to someone canceling very lucky there . Im staying positive or trying anyway. They told me to go ahead and start taking suppliments again so I think its all ok so far just extra steps with the study.

Yep-- it means they will do the surgery pretty much :) they wouldn't tell you to do these pre-op testings and then at the end say oh btw, nope! It's just another pre-op test to make sure you are safe for surgery hun! If you happen to have sleep apnea, they need to know ahead of time, it's really unsafe to have it and not know and have surgery. Better safe than sorry :) WOOHOO!!! And yesssss on your psych eval!! SEE! I bet someone will cancel on the sleep study and you'll end up sooner than you think!!!!!!!

I am fortunate that everyone is crazy within the Army. I have PTSD, OCD, and depressive disorder and the psych made it out like he wouldn't approve me, so I had to work harder than most to get things done. Good for you for checking up and calling and irritating people! I am great at that as well. I turn on the sprinklers if I don't get my way! LOL Within reason of course.

Oh and I had to work on a medication routine where the pills were chewable, meltaway discs, or liquid. If you haven't already, I would check into that as well!

Be sure not to take the vitamin with iron with the calcium. I believe you must space them two hours apart. Celebrate does have vitamins without iron that you can take with calcium. I take the iron alone at night before bedtime.

Im really starting to get tired of this crap. I get my appt for the sleep study its 8-31-11 I was already upset it takes 2 months to get anything done . Then they call me and say its just a consultation. Ill have so schedule later for the study probably 6mos or so . It would be ok but this isnt local about a 150mile trip each time and they arent even doing anything its just come up here so we can tell you to come back later to do our job . I cant give up though Ive gone too far .

I went to see my primary psychiatrist today. He thinks that my thyroid is thrown off due to taking 5 lithium pills a day . hes going so slowly take me off of them . He also said that my thyroid wasnt near as high as the hospital reported not sure why .

Will he be changing your lithium to something else then? Changing medication can always be so iffy when its for these purposes. As if you didnt have enough to deal with! However.. if it is the lithium doing this then it should be re regulated semi quickly and then the thyroid issue is gone and no one can complain.. except you.... if it were me.. i would be angry and yelling up one side and down the other...

*raising my coffee mug to a quick fix for you!*
