Happy and Grateful – Day 3

I have undertaken a challenge this year.  I am trying to find the good in every day by writing about happiness and gratitude that I feel.  No matter how small there is always something to bring a smile or make you grateful, if just for a moment.  Follow along with me as I dig deep as necessary and find the peace of the day.  Join in if you are feeling happy and grateful too – in the comments or on your own blog.  Let’s find some fun!

I am late posting this… darn fatigue!  But it was a busy day yesterday spent on the go and my fibro body takes only so much and then screams, “STOP!”  I just need to learn to write sometime before the stop and hope my happy and grateful moment has occurred.

Yesterday was a trip out-of-town to see my fibro doctor.  For some reason the hundreds of doctors here in town don’t want to treat fibromyalgia.  It is very frustrating.  But I have had some concerns over a new problem with my knee. My mind tends to over think everything… even a new pain.  The doctor seems to think it is just arthritis setting in but took an x-ray to be sure.  I feel better about that.

Just knowing I have a doctor than listens to my worries and does what needs to be done makes me grateful to have found her.  I am happy to have someone who believes in fibro that I can see… there are still doubters in medical field unfortunately.

Doctors are not people I want to see everyday, but I am so grateful I have some good ones in my life.  Cancer, fibromyalgia, depression all have led me to some of the good ones in the profession.  Don’t get me wrong I have had the ones that aren’t so understanding – the doctor who diagnosed me with fibro but wouldn’t tell me, the doctor that said my fatigue was “sleep intoxication”, and the one who refused to see me since I was only making payments on the bill.

I hope you all have been lucky enough to have good doctors.  And if not, I hope you have the strength to keep looking until you find that good ones.  (((HUGS)))
