Next Stop: Camp Cushie!


Today, I kicked my PCP to the curb! I haven't told him yet, but the last few days have been THE HARDEST dealing with him. He didn't believe in Cushing's until Friday, then all of a sudden knows everything about it. He told me he would not refer me to Dr. Ludlum for a workup unless I went and got a workup from one of HIS endocrinologists. Knowing him, he would have told them to ignore me and send me back. He refused on all accounts. I mean, obviously, Im just a fat and lazy sack of crap!

But I still need a referral. So Dr. Ludlum sugested I find another doctor and try to just get referall. I decided to go to a doc-in a-box (PrimaCare= ER walk in clinic) and not only were they able to do the referal (CareNow wouldnt) but the doctor I saw is so intrested in my condition, she wants me to update her on it when I get back. If she ever gets her own practice, I will pay her a visit!

We are getting flights now for April 18th and the 23rd.  This is finally hapining.... It hasnt fully sunk in yet....

Next stop, Camp Cushie....

I think that is so AWESOME! I am so happy that you're finally getting the medical attention you NEED. You deserve it; I've watched your blog the whole time and it pains me to see a friend in pain. HAPPINESS Now! You now face your next obstacle; 24-7 testing for 5 days. I'll be wishing you luck.

Thanks Holly. Its been crazy. Its pretty bad when I can walk in to PrimaCare and get a referral from a more friendly doctor when I cant get one from MY doctor. I knew this day was coming. I just hate doctor hoping. Now I have to find one that understands Cushing's, or at least is willing to work with me and Dr. Ludlum.
