More delays

Got a call this morning from the PA in my PCP's office. I am being sent to a liver specialist although the things found in my ultrasound -- a hemangioma and fatty liver -- are "probably nothing to worry about." Hmm, right. My luck's not so great, so I will wait to see what the specialist says; fortunately, I won't have to wait long, as my appointment is January 8th.

Also glad I never canceled the RE appointment... that's scheduled for 1/17. Am I even going to know whether it's problematic to consider getting pregnant at that point? Likely no; but perhaps he can refer us to a urologist to check on G.

Oh, yeah... and am thinking that I may need to go back on antidepressants. I am having trouble wanting to do anything at work and this isn't even a remotely stressful job. I'm also pretty down about the chances we'll ever have a baby at this rate. Holiday cards chock full of pictures of "families of five" certainly didn't help -- and there were LOTS of those this year. I'm sad, I'm lethargic, I want to do nothing but lie on the couch... probably not a good sign in terms of my ability to handle all the emotional stuff that's likely to come in the months ahead.

Recognizing it is good... fighting it is harder.

I'm not surprised you are down after all the loss you have had to contend with. The ADs I know can really help, I'm hoping they'll be good for you. I also hope that there is nothing seriously wrong with your liver. That really is a low blow.

New reader here, just wondering if you have ever been tested for celiac/gluten intolerance? just a thought, as it can manifest in a lot of ways, including the itchiness. good luck!

I am sorry you are having so many problems. At least you are aware and getting the help of doctors who hopefully know what they are doing.

I hope things get better for you.
