Things spoonies are tired of hearing: doctor edition

dust-sprite:

  • You just need to exercise more
  • You just need more Vitamin D
  • It’s just stress
  • I don’t recall you having this symptom last time we met
  • You need more sleep
  • How are things at home?
  • Oh you’re in school? It’s just stress
  • Oh you have a job? It’s just stress
  • How about physical therapy?
  • This medication won’t help you but let’s try it anyway!

Anonymous: Early signs of chrons disease?

thecrohner:

Crohn’s is a pretty hard thing to pinpoint but some common things to look out for are:

Painful and frequent diarrhea (may be bloody)

Severe abdominal pain

Fevers

Rapid weightloss

As with anything medically related, please go to a gastro doctor, especially one that specializes in irritable bowel disease.  


Anonymous: My face gets red and hot but the body chills no fever does anyone else with chrons disease suffer from that?

thecrohner:

I’ve never experienced that per say but I do get chills.  Anyone else have this happen to them?

If I was given more information, I could be helpful.

diaryofaspoonie:

I’m not new to Tumblr or the Spoonie community, but this is my first separate chronic illness blog and so I guess I’m new to the Spoonie Tumblr world. Which means I want to follow more of you fabulous fellow Spoonies!

So if you have a blog based mostly or entirely around…

Me!

Being an old as shit blog has some disadvantages…

I DREW A THING TO SUM UP MY FEELS
Spoonies go hard or we don’t go at all. Because going IS hard, okay?
[Pictured: me, my cane, my meds, my TENS unit, my heating pad, one blood draw bandage out of probably twenty, and my CPAP mask. Not pictured: lost wages, lost work, lower quality of living, and what it feels like to wake up tireder than you were when you went to bed.]

People with cancer get fundraisers, candle light vigils, and Facebook fan pages.

People with chronic illness get abandoned blamed.
