>The long awaited medwash begins tomorrow morning for M. I hate the thought of leaving him at the hospital by himself to go through this, but know that it is necessary. Hopefully this brings about the changes that help him be more stable.Tweet #fighting4answrs
>It was an eventful week. Monday the 14th I went to the dr because of dizzy spells when I stood up. Really high blood pressure. Got meds for that. Thursday had lunch with my wife and noticed some numbness in the left side of my face. It passed after 20 minutes but left me exhausted. That night it happened again, plus I was feeling dizzy even while laying down, and the exhaustion was even deeper afterward. Friday went back to the doctor. Had the numbness down the left side of my face, as I was explaining to the doctor what was going on, she called an ambulance. Spent Friday night in the hospital. The end diagnosis is I was struck by a series of mini-strokes. 39 years old. I am on the mend now, my face feels weird where the strokes landed, but feel good otherwise. Until my body adjusts to the lower blood pressure, will continue to feel dizzy.
Life is good.Tweet #fighting4answrs
>Frustrated that I called M’s Psychiatrist yesterday and they haven’t called back. Left another message.
Receptionist told me that I needed to call over to some unit and ask if there was a bed open.
“nope,” I said. “That is the doctor’s job.”
