Ok, ready to vent? Frustrated over lack or responses? Life kicking you when you are down? Tell it friends. I'll start. I started volunteering at the local hospital working with the Cancer Navigator. This was good! I received two interviews. This was good too! I received two waitlists... Not TOO bad. Two weeks later, my mom was diagnosed with cancer. Ok, now the bad stuff starts. Post surgery (end of March) my mom suffers two strokes. The 2nd one from the PIC line they used to administer the dopamine to treat the first stroke. Big time bad. I spend about three weeks or a month caring for my mom (I was her medical advocate...this was good, but emotionally difficult). I get d!cked around by her insurance company (this is bad!) and waste three weeks where she could've recovered in therapy. Paperwork was like a full time job. Freaking horrible. Now my grandmother is probably dying. I'm completely anxious about my mom's procedure to fix her patent foramen ovale, my father loosing his mom, me loosing my grandmother, and my future as a physician. I'm right on the edge of overload. I just wish I KNEW so I could deal with everything else. Ok, that's a horribly organized post... feel free to ignore.
